Recovery Mode

It's over. After six months of preparation, the theatre season is finally over and my life settles back down to a slower, quieter daily routine. In so many ways, I miss it, and yet, I don't.

I miss the busyness of constantly having something to do.

I miss the get-it-done spirit that comes with meeting fast approaching deadlines.

I miss the constant laughter of the cast and crew.

I miss the way of life that I've adjusted to over the past few months. 

... and yet.

I'm thankful to be able to think straight again.

To be living with just a little less stress is amazing.

I'd forgotten how much I enjoyed being able to get more then three hours of sleep in a night.

I'm thankful for the time to refocus on other aspects of my life. 

I'm thankful for the time to build the new friendships I have made.

It's going to take a while before I'm used to "life-after-the-play" again... But I know that it will happen and for the moment, I'll just appreciate the quiet and relish the memories.
