For those of us in the United States, we’ve just finished celebrated Thanksgiving. I was fortunate enough to get to spend mine with my immediate and extended family. I just wanted to take some time to post how thankful I am for this site, for my readers, adn the many amazing folks I’ve gotten to speak with.
I’m so grateful to anyone who’s given me their time and help me better understand how the theatre world works, and how to access my students through this medium. I cannot express enough how much the words you’ve all shared have impacted my students and myself.
There are no words for how appreciative I am of my students. Each one has taught me a new perspective in so many aspects of life. They’ve taught me to be silly, to value the people in your life who are “safe,” and to think outside the box. They keep me on my toes and they keep me teachable and flexible.
I have the most unbelievable family. They keep me laughing and learning. Our memories of all sorts are always at the front of my mind, and I’m loving making new ones with the youngest generation of my family.
I have my health, appreciation for myself and what I do, appreciation for the arts and all they teach, and an ability to care for myself. I have fantastic friends I can call on no matter the situation. What more could I want out of life than all of these amazing things?
This week’s challenge is for you to reflect on what you’re thankful for in your life.
Keep playing with words and see what your message creates!
