It's okay to be who i am

I got my second job today.  It's a waiting tables job.  Orientation starts tomorrow.

I'm proud of the life I'm living. It's been a long time since I felt that way.

I teach kids during the day. I coach kids in the fall. I will wait tables some nights, play basketball some nights, and get onstage some nights.

Last night was the first time I was onstage and I almost felt like a motivational speaker.

I felt like for a small stretch during my set -- maybe a minute or so -- I was able to drop the "act," and just be who I actually am.

The reality is, I'm not funny all the time.

That's okay.

I'm slowly, but surely, learning that.
