“Take a Stab at It” ~ PROJECT MOM CASTING CALL

July 26, 2010 by Kat  

If we haven’t met, I’m Kat.

A mom-a-holic, career-a-holic, and happy-hour-a-holic. In no particular order. I pumped four little kids out of my womb in a five year time span. Yes, I know how babies are made. No, none of them were accidents.

I am a Kat who has let wwwwwaaaaaaayyyyyy too much outta her bag on Today’s Cliche.

But, definitely still not enough. I am enduring a metamorphosis.  I have so much more to unload: As Mom, Wife, & CEO of both a household of six and a small business. I am a child grieving the loss of her mother, who passed just three months ago.  I am a neighbor living on Wisteria Lane in Pleasantville.

So much to say. So little time.

In my corner of the ring, I take a candid He Said / She Said look at how differently men and women illustrate the cliches that apply to their lives. On Today’s Cliche, hubs always has a different story. But, this PROJECT MOM Casting Call is just about me. My unique view. NOT HIS! Ah… I AM a fan of the “all about me”.

The ridiculously talented co-creators of Project Mom Casting Call, Leane Vandeman (@leevandeman) and Ciaran Blumenfeld (@momfluential), are not only looking for an online mom who has “it”, but they’re looking for those with a story to tell.

Why does just thinking about “my story” make me want to run for a swig of a cheap champagne? Probably because having to divulge my actual story to the masses is like going out to my mailbox to get the mail… naked (recall, I live in Pleasantville).

I was raised in a home where you just sweep any harsh realities, shame, or insider secrets under the carpet.

I still worry about what others think of me. My viewpoint. My mistakes. Not sure why.

Ironically, I do thrive on surfacing my imperfections. Why? Because that is where the TRUE connections, and ability to relate with my audience, transform.

It is insanely intoxicating to connect. Whether with fellow bloggers, or those who swore they’d never read a blog in their life.

I was tossing and turning last night at the deviant parallel my blog and blogging life has to ABC’s Brothers and Sisters. Eventually all of this show’s characters’ insecurities and shortcomings surface.  As each episode waxes and wanes, the audience winds up falling in love with the characters’ idiosyncrasies; their mistakes; their callousness; their mortality; their raw emotions. I surmise that I’m now wiggling out of the beginner stages of “worrying” about what others will think, judge, or like about me. That my friends, is a HUGE vault.

The parallel furthers itself. No matter how badly I’ve screwed up in the past, or today – I’ve developed a community of family & supporters, similar to the Walkers. Even if we can’t agree — we CAN relate to each other.

It really is all about RELATING, AND realizing that EVERYTHING IS RELATIVE.

    Kat! I’m so excited you’re doing this! You don’t have to worry about the tweeting and all that stuff, though. I’m pretty sure the production company is going to pick after viewing/reading all the submissions. It’s not a popularity contest, so don’t freak out! ;)
