Day 21: Take a Break
Another reflection question.
What creative skill do you think you’re best at?
This is a hard question for me because I feel like I have been away from my creativity for so long. I’m just now trying to get back to it in tiny ways. I would love to jump back in but it’s really scary.
When I was younger I used to sing all the time. Then I found acting and I fell in love with that, too. I was good at both, maybe great. But life happened, and I got away from music and theatre and then I found myself older, overweight and self-esteemless. And I just didn’t do them anymore. I haven’t sang in public for ~10 years, save one time at a karaoke bar. And I’ve only been on stage acting once in that time, last summer in a community theatre show. So the two things I’m best at I just don’t do.
I have plans though. Lots and lots of them. I want to take voice lessons, sing in a choir, learn guitar, re-learn piano, take some acting lessons, etc. A lot of these plans are on hold now because I am attempting to find work in Orlando and move. I don’t want to start anything I can’t finish.
So for now, I work on my drawing skills, write this blog, and focus on my short-term goals. And I sing in my car and do Oscar-worthy performances at my current job that I hate. I see the light at the end of the tunnel. I’m almost there.
