Kinda soft & unnecessary but I want to thank you all for giving this page a chance and welcoming me into the Dickkory & Kory community! I’m forever blessed to be here and the one shot should be coming within a few days!

take a moment to check your posture and get a drink of water. look up from your phone or computer screen and just take in your surroundings. 

this is a reminder to check yourself, how you are feeling right now, and do what you can to help yourself. 

you deserve to feel happy in this moment.

Be aware that what you think, to a large extent, creates the emotions that you feel. See the link between your thinking and your emotions. Rather than being your thoughts and emotions, be the awareness behind them.

Here’s something that I’ve been meaning to post for awhile but kept forgetting too. I had the honour of being able to contribute to the @ml-disaster-relief-zine with so many AMAZINGLY TALENTED artists. Here is the piece that I submitted and was featured in the zine. It was such a great experience to be able to be a part of something so amazing and I couldn’t be more grateful.

(PLEASE DO NOT REPOST)

today is so small in comparison to the rest of our lives. the meaningless troubles that haunt you now mean absolutely nothing in light of the bright, long future ahead of you. these problems may seem endless, they may seem as if they have no visible solution. but trust me, there is a solution and it will come to you in the future. whatever is a burden on your chest, it will be lifted in time. choose to consider the bright life ahead of you instead of the struggles that keep you chained to the past. there is so much you are going to do, so much you are going to experience. breathe and feel free because everything heals with time. 

My Family.  This photo was taken at the last table read of Season Four. 

This show has been such a blessing to me. A rock in the worst times and a door to so many unbelievable opportunities. I’m thankful for it in all aspects. I’m thankful for our Executive Producers Danny Cannon, John Stevens, Bruno Heller for my inclusion in this show, and the continuous belief in my abilities in playing the GLORIOUS Selina Kyle. Thank you, Danny and Bruno, for believing in that 14 year old girl who jumped off a chair in that fancy theatre on the Warner Brothers lot. I’m thankful for FOX and WarnerBros TV for providing a foundation for a beautiful, unique show like ours. I’m thankful for the amazing group of people that make up our Crew; because, ultimately, we wouldn’t have a show without them. I am thankful for the cast. Over the last 4 years, we have become a Family of Choice. Which, in my opinion, is the best kind of family because like the name states, we’ve chosen each other. Work isn’t work on our set, to me. It’s Family Time. And yes, it can be stressful because our days are typically 14 hours long but—there’s never a dull moment. And I’m so excited Gotham gets another handful of time filled with vivid moments through Season 5. 

Tune into the Fourth Season Finale, Tonight. 8pm Eastern on FOX.

life does go on. it may seem like life is stagnant and unchanging after a rejection or a bad exam grade, but it is not. on the days when your life is at its lowest and you feel like nothing is moving towards the light, there is something silently stirring around you. magical and warm, time continues to inch forward. slow, aching minutes become a bright new dawn. the darkness lightens with the rays of the sun. you start again; you keep on changing for the better. you can only move in one direction and that direction is forward. from this point on, you are only gradually moving forward towards the light. its only a matter of time until you feel warmth again.
