Friday morning reality check.
Making TV is a crazy business. Long hours. Lots of issues revolving around things like dressing rooms and make-up colors, the selection of food on the craft service table (must have a balance of Twizzlers and Organic dried edamame), and timing life down to the seconds – literally. “That take was 4.5 seconds, can we get it to 4.0?”
But a friend sent me this link this morning, and it brought me immediately back to what’s really important. Don’t get me wrong – working and making a living in order to eat and have a roof over your head – is definitely important. But once all that is covered… what then?
This article grounded me. After full week of 20 hour days and no sleep, I’m crying at my desk in gratitude. Big thanks to the mom who both shared my fear and calmed it.
My favorite quote was this… “In the end, success won’t be measured by academic performance or job placement. It will have more to do with accumulating small pleasures and filling your life with those. I don’t know why it never occurred to me: Your future should look like the best parts of your present.”
Hope you enjoy the read. Stay present.
