Get Real – My Leap of Faith – Reflection

Take a moment to think about where you are at this moment. Really take the time to reflect on every aspect of your life: job, career, love life, health, and social life. Where were you last year at this time? Have you or your life changed or has it stayed the same? Are you the…

Mindful Monday #60 – This is YOUR Life

Happy Monday! I can’t believe April is almost here. So many anniversaries, of events in my life that I wrote about last year, are around the corner.  Today’s Mindful Monday Quote hits the nail on the head with the energy and mindset that runs through my body. The first time I saw this quote I…

White Blank Page

I’ve been feeling antsy lately like there is something more I could be doing, but I don’t know what that is? I haven’t figured out what prompted this feeling and where it is guiding me. January was All Things New: new job, new apartment, new friends, new community involvement and a new leadership role. February…

Wisdom Wednesday #32 – Accepting the Love You Deserve

This weeks Wisdom Wednesday, I curated a little over six months ago.  The Perks Of Being A Wallflower is one of my favorite books and the quote: “We only accept the love we think we deserve,” is one of the many quotes that has stuck out to me from that book.  That quote had a…

Mindful Monday #59 – Turn the Page

Do you ever have a moment in your life where you wish you had a camera to capture the moment?  Last week, I really wish I had a video camera or a documentary team to capture the main events and realizations that I had.  What. A. Week.  Something has epically shifted in my life and…

Wisdom Wednesday #31 – Overlooked Beauty

Happy Wednesday.  This weeks Wisdom Wednesday I saw a few years ago on Facebook.  The message from the interview always struck a chord with me as a student of acting and improv. When you step into the shoes of a character and get to know that character you are never the same. To become a…

Mindful Monday #58 – Voyage of Discovery

Ever since I saw the musical Wicked, I have noticed that their has been a shift in my awareness.  In fact, this awareness shift has been very gradual, but was fully brought to my attention when I wrote my Wicked post.  The way I deconstructed the musical is the way I have been deconstructing a…

It’s All About the Breath

Stop.  Notice anything?  No.  Check again.  Still nothing?  I’ll give you a hint, check within yourself.  Are you breathing?  Don’t throw the argument on the table that of course you are breathing, because you are alive.  Are you really breathing, mindfully breathing? I started a new improv class this past weekend which focuses on character…

Mindful Monday #57 – Gentle Beauty

Happy Monday!   Last week was amazing, in the way that I needed it to be for me.  It was also a bit crazy.  I always carry questions with me that I think about for weeks at a time.  I excavate the answers through conversations, sound bites I over hear, things that come up or anything…

Wicked

Is there anyone in your life at the moment or from your past that makes you sick? They irritate you?  Bother you?  And You’d be okay if you never saw them again? Everyone at one point in their life or another knows or knew someone that they had trouble embracing.  Perhaps at times we have…

Wisdom Wednesday #30 – Give Good Away

Everyone feels alone and there is such an inter-connectivity among us that I not only see but feel, the more I move forward down this journey, develop my voice and step into my greatness. Life can get hard and we can get overwhelmed but that is no reason for us to abandon the mission for…

Mindful Monday #56 – Make YOU Happy

It’s still Monday!  The day is not done. March officially kicks off my “back to basics” goal to get back into the habit of my Mind, Body and Soul goals i.e. meditating daily (soul), bring back yoga (body/ health) and digging deeper with Improv (Mind). While I set these goals in the past and achieved…
