Seasons change

Despite the cold and snow I had an amazing winter. I starred in two off-Broadway productions, made new friends, and most importantly I grew as a person and as an artist.

And just like the season it is time for a change. After much thought I decided to leave the theatre company I had been a part of for almost two years. I had grown to love and respect a great core of actors. I felt nurtured, but at the same time I felt the need to move on. At first it was scary. The thought of leaving friends, familiar routines seemed to out weight the need I was feeling to move on. But this is what makes life exciting and worth living. Creating positive and meaningful memories, so when it is time to explore other opportunities you know you can move on in good conscience.

I recently was accepted into a sketch comedy and improv program. Something I have always wanted to do. I may have missed it because I was afraid to take a chance.

Holding on to something because of fear can hold back unseen blessings. Let go. We don’t know when the seasons will change, and we don’t need to. But they will change.
