Another thing I learned this year, and still learning.. is Balance. I have never realized how important this is until this past year.
I have a very obsessive personality, so when I find interest in something... I go a bit overboard. For a while I was working 7 days a week. I couldn't handle having nothing to do. My days started at 5 AM and ended around midnight. I reached a point I was so completely exhausted, I had pushed many people away. I wasn't able to sleep because I was too concerned about getting everything done the next day. About a month later the opposite happened.. I had no motivation to do ANYTHING. Literally, I wanted to sleep all day everyday and I barely worked.
Finding balance is such a challenge for me, so props to anyone who understands it. Today however, I think I got it down. I went to Acting class, worked on my writing, saw people I love to spend time with, I went to work (Which was strangely fun..) and I made it to the gym and had a killer workout. So I kinda feel great right now.
These past few weeks I've been working on balance. Between working, Acting, and fitness. It's not easy to do at first, especially from someone who has an addictive/obsessive personality. But once you figure it out.. It the greatest thing. Everything seems easier, and much much more enjoyable.
