All Signs Point to Yes

I’ve been crying a lot lately. There are many moments where I stop to catch my breath. I have moments of disbelief at the obstacles I have faced and have overcome. I can clearly remember what it felt like to be so lost and feel so alone at times. Oh, the fears I have released…

I’m Thankful For: Clarity

I have worked on location three times in six years. My earlier experiences on location each pointed me towards an area of my life that I needed to explore further. This current experience has brought overall clarity in all aspects of my life, specifically in the areas that I have worked on these past three…

You’re Going to Be Okay

Pack your bags your headed to location! I started a new feature this week. I was surprised to learn that I’d travel this soon. This week has been a whirl wind of many surreal moments and career milestones. My younger self is pleased. Being away from the familiar has been a great teacher because I…

Production Wrap

Today is the last day of work on my current show. I haven’t had time to let the end settle in my mind because of the high demands. My department never had a chance to breathe, but we banded together and worked through the challenges. This particular movie has a special meaning to me because…

Mindful Monday #86 – Don’t Round Out Your Edge

Happy Monday! My show wraps in two weeks. I’m looking forward to having down time to re-calibrate myself to normal hours of work and rest. When a show ends it is a tradition for producers, director and/or actors to give the crew wrap gifts for all their work and time. Department heads and supervisors also…

Mindful Monday #23 – Tests

“I feel like I am being tested.”  I told my friend this weekend.  “And I am not sure if I am passing the test?  I just want to get through it.”   I have thought a lot about how life tests our strengths, perspectives, desires and our maturity.  This time last year I felt that I…

Grounded – My Month of Writing

This month of writing is taking on a life of it’s own.  I found myself in conversations with authors, a mentor from college, my friend the fiction writer, my friend the spiritual intuitive, my friend the psychologist and my friend the yogi.  If last week was about healing (Heal First, Write Second – My Month…

This Isn’t Goodbye

I am on location this week.  To be on location in the film industry means that the production company I work for is shooting in a remote city, which requires travel and housing (away from the production companies home base.)  Working on location in the department that I am in challenges my goal to write…
