Life in Full Bloom

This week was the best week of my life. Prior to finding my voice in the Fall of 2013, I set the goal at the start of that year to balance my life. I did not know what I was getting into when I made that choice. And I didn’t think the choice would change…

Mindful Monday #108 – Habits

Let’s talk about habits. As a goal-setter I have developed a lot of great habits around setting goals, tracking progress and adjusting a goal based on that progress. Goals have taught me different things at different times of my life. My most recent lesson with goals is to allow them to lead me where I…

All Is Not Lost

Happy New Year’s Eve! I hope the year was good to you and everything that you needed it to be. If the year was a challenge, I hope you learned and grew or at least saw the light of each challenge. If the year all around stunk, I hope today is the high note that…

Waking Up from the Dream

I cried last night. I am feeling better, but I can’t seem to get enough rest. I’m still really physically tired AND also mentally exhausted. I have never been sick like this in my life and it’s unnerving. As I laid in bed, I reviewed the past four years to see if there were signs…

What I Believe Makes Me Who I Am

My goal for the month is to focus on my Heath. I wanted to exercise daily, meditate and detox by making different food choices. Getting sick wasn’t in the cards, but the timing is beautiful. I can’t work out at the moment because I have limited energy and limited lung capacity, but I am still…

NaBloPoMo

NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month) starts tomorrow. This past Wednesday, I found out that this event exists and I have never heard of it before. I already wanted to focus the month on writing daily, so coming across this event felt serendipitous. November will be a big month for me for writing with this challenge,…

My Body Is My Temple

“My Body is my Temple,” is the phrase on my 2015 vision board. When we think about a temple we think about something that is well taken care of and sacred. I have been focusing on my health since I moved to Los Angeles, but really started to make better strides toward it these past…

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…

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 #87 – One More Round

This weekend was a little over whelming. I am enjoying the current state of my life and the fruits of all my labor. I was able to catch up with a lot of friends that I haven’t seen in months. It was so good to see everyone. There is a bit of sadness in my…

Mindful Monday #85 – Do What Others Won’t

My new personal year has begun and already everything feels different. I am ready and energized for what’s next. Last year was incredibly hard, but it lead to so much growth and wisdom. I have a deep sense of happiness that I have never known. When I was a girl I wanted to be a…

Mindful Monday #84 – The Real Voyage of Discovery

It’s my Birthday! I met up with my best friend brother Teddy last week and reviewed my personal year with him. I don’t know how I made it through this past year? I really don’t? As I recalled my year, I discovered aspects of the year that I completely forgot about. This is the first…

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…

My Inciting Incident

This past Friday was my 5 year anniversary of moving to Los Angeles (LA). My move was prompted by my desire to further my career in the entertainment industry. In college, once I decided to actually pursue this career (versus dream about it), I knew LA would be in my future. The year before I…
