Thanksgiving came and went. We all spent time with loved ones and shared thanks as we stuffed our faces. But who said this is the only day to be thankful? Why isn’t this just something we do every day? In New York City, we as a people are just so focused on what we have to do. Everything is always a rush, and it never seems like there is enough time in the day. Maybe we should though. Maybe we should dedicate just a little bit of time to give thanks.
This year I have gone through such a major transition. In the snap of a finger I went from being a banker in Long Island to an actor/producer in NYC. It has been an amazing ride so far, and I am so appreciative of every opportunity that I’ve been given. It didn’t dawn on me until recently that I haven’t expressed my thankfulness to the people that matter most in my life. Sure, I send out post cards and thank you e-mails to people in the business, because I am a professional. But to the ones I love most, those people that I’ve skipped hanging out with for my career, the ones that have been my support system from Day 1, I haven’t had a chance to say “thank you”. I really hope those people are reading this, because you all have had such an impact on my life and I am blessed to have known each and every one of you.
I will admit, I am a bit of a workaholic, but that is no excuse to turn my back on the heart of ChoueNation. While I am thankful for many things, I honestly don’t think I would be who I am today without my friends and family. You know who you are. Just know that every day I’m working, every day I’m on set or at an event, you are on mind and in my heart. Thank you for always being there.
