I love this article from Mashable, 10 Mister Rogers Quotes to Remember on Bad Days. This quote in particular seems to sum things up: "Often when you think you're at the end of something, you're at the beginning of something else."
Honestly, I had a lot of bad days in 2013, but I also had some really, really good ones. I started out the year with a lot of questions, mainly, "Now what?" I didn't know what my next move was going to be. But piece by piece, things are coming together. My job at CCFA is giving me structure, my acting and modeling gigs are bringing me excitement, and my Rodan + Fields business is guiding me along the long journey to rebuild my confidence.
A successful professional. On my own terms. Dreaming big again.
I ended 2013 with a big confidence boost -- a return to TV! The hosts of The Morning Blend asked me to sit in on a segment to chat about wedding planning. (Yes, wedding planning -- another theme of my 2013.) I had a wonderful time.
Farewell, 2013! I won't say good riddance, but I'm definitely looking forward to 2014. The Best. Year. Ever.
