2015 was a year of difficulties. I faced challenges I didn’t know how to face. Friendships and relationships were strained, often lost. My self-esteem and confidence rocketed back and forth between 0 and 100. My heart swelled with hurt and grew with love. I learned forgiveness. I produced my first show. I started directing two. I had a wonderful job this summer. I went to New York on dream trips twice. I met some of my idols. I made new, incredible friends. I made mistakes. I did #100happydays. I learned more about myself than I thought there was to learn. I realized more of who I am and what I want to be.
I’m ready for you, 2016. You will be a year of healing and change, life and love, new and old.
I am here. I’m still here.
I’m trying to follow.
I’m trying to lead.
I’m trying to learn what is true.
I’m trying to be what you want and I need,
But we all have a little more homework to do.
