I've basically been sitting around for a month, eating way too much, watching TV like it's my job, playing iPad word games with my mother and sister, and sleeping. I had a "to do" list at the beginning of December, and only in the last 2 days have I done most of the stuff on it. It's the slow season for the entertainment industry, so there were only a few auditions anyway, which was good, since I was on crutches for most of the month.
During this unexpected hiatus, a few things were reinforced for me:
- My life won't fall apart if I take a break.
- Good health is the most precious possession that I have (mental health included).
- I can decide how and if I respond to things.
- I'm a grown woman, and I can do whatever I want.* Full stop.
And right now, I want hot chocolate.
Happy New Year, y'all!
