An Open Farewell Letter: Thank You Green Room Bloggers!

January 6, 2014

“I’ve heard it said
That people come into our lives for a reason
Bringing something we must learn
And we are led
To those who help us most to grow
If we let them
And we help them in return” ~ Wicked The Musical

Wow- it’s amazing how quickly time flies. I feel like it was only yesterday that I was accepted as a member of the awesome Green Room Blog Ensemble. I remember feeling so incredibly excited and drafting my first post that same night! It has been a whirlwind of wonderful experiences since. Now, a year later I have chosen to retire from the blog, as I’m sure there is another wonderful blogger out there just waiting to tell their story.

I have learned so much being a member of this blog. My blogger name, The Growing Artist, has definitely held true during my time writing for this blog. I have grown a lot- thanks to all the wonderful entries written by the other ensemble members. They have all been so inspiring, and I do hope I, in turn, was able to inspire some with my words as well. It has been a pleasure being a part of this wonderful community.

Some of the big lessons I have learned since joining this blog include:

  • The acting community is awesome! We are all in this journey together. Just as there are no small parts in acting, there are no small parts in this community. Your words can inspire others more than you think. I felt inspired many-a-day by the wonderful words of my fellow actors. 
  • I can be a blogger! Previous to writing for the Green Room Blog, I had never written for a blog. Now I know that I can blog and I love it! I hope to do more of it in the future.
  • I’m not alone. Everyone has a time during their career where they feel they are the only actor going through certain hardships. As easy as it is to believe this theory, it’s not true. We’ve all been there! I occasionally posted about a difficult situation and was met with words of understanding and encouragement. I also saw posts that I could totally relate to!

Best of luck to the Green Room Blog!

    Good luck with your future endeavors, Growing Artist! I’m glad I was able to send an ornament your way before your departure. I couldn’t agree more with what you learned. It’s so awesome and rewarding finding others on the other side of the country are feeling the same thoughts as us. All the best to you!
