a day ago
The past few weeks have been rough. I was really sick with the flu, and just as I was getting better I had to deal with cracking my molar, as well as some other issues.
It is so easy to feel overwhelmed and depressed. But the past two days I have been almost constantly reminded of the beautiful people that I’m fortunate enough to have in my life. And I’m feeling very lucky. Because when I think about the difficulties, it’s not just the past couple of weeks- life has been rough the past few months, the past three years, several years before that, and the 20 years before that were really tough, and then there’s my perceived difficult childhood. Life has been almost a continual series of hard times, peppered with some really amazing, beautiful moments. Only a very few close friends know the details, I have been a very successful actress despite not being paid or getting any IMDb credit.
I’m finding the trick is to surround yourself with good people that help lift you up, stay strong and positive, don’t sweat the small stuff, and keep your head up so that you don’t miss the beautiful moments when they happen, because they will. And always remember that everyone else is going through their own stuff too. We are all damaged. We are all beautiful messes. We need to be kind to one another. We are all in this together. #life #smile #weareinthistogether #friendship #gratitude #thankful #journey #lalife #losangeles #actor #family #beautifulmoments
