After taking quite a bit of time off, I am coming back to blogging. I was dealing with a lot of personal issues in my life and realized I needed some time to process everything that was going on before I could write a GOOD post on this blog again. Luckily, I am feeling so much better and have so much peace of mind.
For those of you who don't know, I went through a really rough breakup right at the beginning of the school year and it took quite a toll on me. I wasn't sleeping. I was hardly eating. I got into quite a funk, but, thanks to my wonderful group of friends, I was able to pull myself out.
There is so much more to this world than being upset over something I, quite frankly, couldn't control. I understand now that only I can control my happiness (this is much easier said than done, but it's true) and I can't rely on other people to give that to me; and, my happiness lies in my acting. Yes, that's right, my acting.
During all my confusion, I thought maybe I shouldn't be acting. Instead, maybe I should be a costume designer, or I should be managing a theater company, or I should be doing something behind the scenes; however, it was just me doubting myself because, if I couldn't be good enough for a guy how could I be good enough to do what I love? It sounds stupid, but it is really what went through my head when all of this was going on.
Granted, I definitely love designing and think I will keep doing it on the side, but acting is my one true love and passion. I'm not giving that up. Not for anyone.
So, here is to a new start as I come back into the blogging world again!
