As we reach the end of 2014 its easy to sit back and notice all the things you DIDNT do
But I for one am going to notice what I DID do with my year and I invite you to do the same
1- I co-produced the Hollywood fringe festival AND I acted in TWO shows at Theatre of NOTE
The first was understudying for two amazing actresses in Dissasembly. It was a wonderfuland scary challenge that only made me grow as an actor.
The second was the show I closed in November- Banshee. This play was a dream come true. A meaty role, an irish dialect, a fantastic cast and crew who I felt always had my back... And to top it off my parents were able to come to an absolutly amazing closing night
2- Although he is no longer with me my beloved Toby (pet rabbit) thought me so much this year about patience life and unconditional love. I took care of him three times a day for every day of his last 18 or more months of life. Challenging is the right word but it showed me so much about myself and about life. That rabbit had the ultimate will to live and enjoyed every breathe he breathed. May we all be more like that.
3- I went to an amazing workshop (Accelerated Artists) and amongst many things I learnt it motivated me to start this very newsletter to keep in touch with all my friends and family about my acting career!
And so much more
Sure I could notice that I didn't land a sitcom, become the next companion on Doctor Who nor did I make an appearance as a new ward on Downton Abby... (Yet)
But I'd rather look at all the positives that this year DID bring me and use the rest as motivation to challenge myself with in this next year coming
Here's to 2015
To bigger brighter more abundant days...
And hover boards
