{happy night out with my bestie Katierose}

I’m married to a “glass half full” kind of guy, which is good because I am not. But nobody likes being around a negative person (and you guys certainly didn’t click this blog to get bummed out), so it’s something I’m working on to be better about. I got some disappointing career news yesterday, and I really let it affect me and spin the rest of my day out; but all of the loved ones I reached out to had a very different perspective than I did, seeing it as an opportunity and a positive instead of a sign that’s it’s time to quit Hollywood and have a baby (my favorite thing to sob when I’m feeling especially melodramatic and sorry for myself).

The thing is, I’ve had a great week. I performed in a storytelling show on Sunday night that I was scared to do and ended up having a blast. We’ve gone on a few double dates with people we love. I’ve forced my dogs to endure a lot of snuggling. Some really nice people have had some really nice things to say about the blog (thank you again for your support). But, I let yesterday’s news overshadow everything. I don’t want to do that anymore, I really want to try to take things in stride and not be so hard on myself, or get so upset when things don’t go exactly as I planned them to. And I’m also going to try harder to expand my definition of success, and not mentally abuse myself when I’m not achieving the exact thing I wanted by the exact timeline I set for my life. (If you have any advice on how to do this, please comment below!)

In the meantime, though, I’m going to waste some time on the internet. BECAUSE I’M A MILLENIAL (I think. Please don’t tell me if I’m too old to be a millenial.) AND THAT’S WHAT WE DO. Happy hump day, you sweet sweet people!
