This year has already been full of so many journeys and lessons. I'm in my last semester of undergrad and I'm preparing for life after this chapter. I'm in a magnificent show, Hatfield and McCoy. Come see it if you haven't or see it again! Being in this production has become one of my favorite experiences so far in Chicago. I'm dealing with being a full time artist on top of everything. My anxiety has been at an all time high but I'm learning what helps me relieve my stress. I've gotten into meditation and yoga heavily. I write in my journal almost every day. I also make sure to make time for self care (which is usually taking myself out to eat).
The biggest lesson I've learned so far this year is to not set high expectations for things that I can't control. I've learned to let go of things I can't control. I've learned to detach from outcomes, something that's extremely difficult for me. I'm working on remaining present and in the moment every day and I'm proud of the progress I've made. Most importantly, I’m learning to truly love myself. Every day is a new day to be better and an opportunity to start over. I'm grateful for where I'm at in life and I know things are only going to get better.
