Anna’s Final Words:
I like performing, I like entertaining, and I like feeding people. I like making people laugh and I like feeding people. That’s really what it comes down to. Whenever I am able to have those opportunities to do that, I’m a happy person. Everything else is just part of the journey.
When we talked about the negative stuff coming up, that was really powerful. I feel like that is where the meat of all of this is. If we were all just skipping stones, jumping from one success to the next success, we aren’t learning anything from that journey. There’s that quote from therapy, “If it makes you make it hysterical, it’s historical.”
