Tune Tuesday #25 – Everyone Wants to Be Loved

For the Month of February I set the intention to meditate on LOVE. I want to sit in the essence of love so it can teach me beyond what I have experienced and been socialized to believe. I want to learn what I don’t know that I don’t know. Typically when we think of love, we think of…

Tune Tuesday #24 -Starlight

“I don’t know if it’s worth it anymore?” That line is from the Muse song Starlight. I first heard that song when I was an intern at a local radio station in Arizona and it quickly became the symbol of my dream to move to Los Angeles and further my career in the entertainment industry….

Tune Tuesday #23 – Land of Confusion

I want to scream. I am pretty sure you want to scream too. The direction our society is headed is frightening. On top of the river of violence that is reported on what feels like a weekly and sometimes daily basis and racism being so blatant recently, as it has been in our history, it is a…

Tune Tuesday #22 – Where is the Love?

In November, I was in isolation from the familiar. I wasn’t in Los Angeles, but home with my family. While I visit my family often, I didn’t have the energy, or communication with friends that have become standard during my visits home. Being sick shifted all my plans for the month. A week visit home…

Tune Tuesday #21 – Give a Little Bit

This week is Thanksgiving! In my early adulthood my focus shifted from counting my blessings during this season, to thanking the people who are blessings. Almost 10 years ago, I started the tradition of sending personal, hand written, thank you notes to people that have the biggest impact on my year. These notes outline specific actions, words…

Tune Tuesday #19 – What the World Needs Now

Home is distinctly different each time I visit, because my intentions are different. I came home this weekend to be with my sister aka the doc student and her baby for Halloween and so I could rest. Her daughter is her first child and the first grand child and niece to our family. I am…

Tune Tuesday #18 – I Won’t Back Down

It’s Tuesday and I feel exhausted. I spent 80% of the weekend resting from the stress of the last month of work. I have not felt tired like this in a long time. I feel like your body feels when you have a cold, but without the cold. I usually do well at listening to…

Tune Tuesday #17 – More Than Everything

I went out last night to celebrate a friends birthday. We met through improv and are friends on facebook, but we don’t see each other or catch up regularly. A year into studying improv, I took time off and she moved into a new portion of the school. We haven’t seen each other in about…

Tuesday #16 – May You Be Forever Young

It’s Tuesday my favorite day of the week, because I love the music! In thinking about this new year and yesterday’s post I couldn’t think of a more perfect song then Forever Young. While this blog is a motivational blog, it organically motivational. I’m not pushing out motivation that has no depth nor am I…

Tune Tuesday #15 – The Great Unknown

It’s Tuesday! For this new personal year, I decided to start a new tradition. I set two intentions, which I have never done. Today I will take another step toward those intentions and make a vision board for my personal year. Up to now, I have only made vision boards for my goals that I…

Tune Tuesday #14 – Stand In the Fire

I first read the poem An Invitation, by Oriah, in my voice class in 2013. The poem first spoke to me, because it describes the way I seek to know people. I don’t want to see the public self, I want to see a person fully exhaled, open and vulnerable in my presence. The poem…

Tune Tuesday #11 – Haven’t Met You Yet

Happy Tuesday. I have been thinking long and hard about a song that wraps up this series on breakups. I thought of several songs, both breakup and love songs alike but nothing felt right. Then, I heard the perfect song this morning. It’s a song that is optimistic for those who are currently single and…
