What I Accomplished in 2016

February 18, 2017



It's really easy to look at how historically and personally terrible 2016 was. I, like a lot of folks, have had a tough year. But in preparation for 2017, I spent a lot of time reflecting on what I accomplished, and found there was a lot to celebrate:





Career Moves


I left the full-time job life behind which granted me more time for auditions, art-making, and time to grow my artist self. I participated in two workshops this year, and was able to take more creative jobs like being a:


Teaching Artist 

 Yes! And... Collaborative Arts hired me as a teacher last summer, and I have been teaching ever since! I never knew I had it in me. It has been one of my favorite jobs I have had besides being an actor.


EMC Card


I had the incredible opportunity to get my EMC Card when I understudied at the Arden Theater this year. I'm really interested to see how it will help me at EPA's, but even so, this was a goal I was excited to meet!



 This was perhaps my biggest accomplishment, probably in the existence of my life so far, and yet one I seldom talk about. With the help of a few amazing young artists, I was able to create and self-produce this feminist clown show in my living room for SoLow Fest last June! I learned so much about making a thing, how much I love clowning, and all about feminism and its many forms.



Not bad, right?  This was a really hard piece for me to write mostly because I spent a lot of my year feeling down and out.  It took a lot time for me to appreciate and realize I accomplished a lot. 


And whether or not I did "good work," or could say I was 100% confident the entirety of this year is irrelevant - I accomplished all of these things - despite all odds!



Ok, now it's your turn.


Look back at your year - however dreadful - and name at least 4 things that you are proud of.  It may feel kind of awkward, but challenge yourself to do it. Take a moment to reflect and celebrate yourself.


Post it on Facebook, write a blog, or just tell a friend.



Whatever medium, choose to start fresh by loving on yourself today!
