What I learned this year.

February 11, 2014

2013 was not a growing year for me artistically. It was a year of consistency of performing, and for that I am very thankful. But 2013 was a huge year for personal growth.

In 2013 I learned how to be honest with people and how to express to them how I am okay and am not okay with being treated. A few of those relationships have taken a back-seat because we were honest, and a few people I have chosen to walk away from. And because of this, I treasure those in my life who can be both honest and loving to me, people who support me even as they push me to be a better person.

I learned what types of shows and roles don’t satisfy me artistically and that it’s okay to work less and enjoy more the work you do. Less and less do I dread answering the “what’s next for you?” question. Because something will always be next. Life doesn’t end when my show ends and neither does it restart when a new show comes up.

I learned that I don’t thrive well in drama-filled casts, but I learned how to avoid the drama. I learned who I don’t want to work with again and learned some people I truly trust with my life. Maybe these experiences are part of why I’m okay with working less and doing better shows. I’d rather value my time with incredible people than put up with constant drama.

Thank you 2013 for the valuable lessons! I’m ready to keep growing. (and thanks for always helping me express my feelings in pretty typography!)
