Everything I Need to Know

I’ve just returned from acting and directing at a theatre festival. Wish you’d been with us.

Here’s what came up.

1. We think healthy and not-so-healthy thoughts, we feel healthy and not-so-healthy feelings. I do better when i welcome both, and let both go.

2. The crowd may love me, the crowd may not. There’s no point in getting too bent out of shape by either of those.

3. There is nothing as good as sinking into right here, right now. Best thing about being an actor, as far as I know.

4. I’m human. Some days that pisses me off, but it’s the truth.

5. Celebrate everyone’s work, their efforts, their willingness to be here and open, and their limitations. If I’m lucky, they’ll be as generous with me when i need it.

6. What I know about myself matters more than what anyone else thinks, as long as what I know about myself has to do with being gifted, loving, and loved.

7. Javier Bardem is the best actor in the world. This has nothing to do with the weekend, but I’m in the middle of a crush, and am proud I resisted mentioning him in the first line.

8. Love wins. Loving myself. Loving the people who are easy to love. Loving the people who drive me mad. Loving my work and play. Loving whatever is in front of my face right now.

9. Whatever I need to know is right in front of me. Every time.

Hope you’re having a wonderful day.

Thanks for the conversation,

  1. The following time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I imply, I do know it was my option to learn, but I actually thought youd have one thing fascinating to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about one thing that you can fix if you happen to werent too busy on the lookout for attention.

    Brilliant and simple all at the same time Kristin – thank you.
    I also have a crush on Javier so I appreciate your efforts at resisting to mention him on the first line – glad to know I’m not the only one!

    Not sure what Branden’s point is above, but like you said in #2, “…there’s not much point in getting too bent out of shape by either of those.”

    I AM having a wonderful day & wish the same to you!

    You are one of the people I most look forward to hearing from. We’ve never “met” – I happened upon you by “chance”. What a bright light you are and I want you to know I appreciate you, here, in far-away Nebraska. Please continue to lift and enlighten!

    A friend shared this with me and it made what was starting off as a hard day much better. Thank you for your honesty, love and kindness. I’m a big fan of #4.

    #1 is big for me: “We think healthy and not-so-healthy thoughts, we feel healthy and not-so-healthy feelings”.

    It helps me to remember this and not attack myself when I think or feel the “wrong” thoughts and feelings.
