Mindful Monday #166 – When Spirit Emerges

Happy Monday! I held my first of many public councils and I am on such a high. My heart was so deeply warmed by the yoga studio, the council participants and what emerged in the space. I have so much vision for this space, I deeply believe in it and I have experienced continually the…

Wisdom Wednesday #81 – Getting Back to What You Love

My life is aligning perfectly with my long term goals and the vision I hold for my future. I have been working hard to reach my new dream for the past three years. With the day to day demands of life and work, it can be challenging to stay motivated to move forward. I had a…

The Year of Adventure

Happy New Year! It’s 2017!!! I hope your 2016 ended well with peaceful resolve on the hard moments and experiences of your year.  I hope you had profound realizations on ways that you have grown, or need to grow and the ways you are or need to be nurtured and loved. My 2016 was great…

Mindful Monday #140 – Define Happiness

As kids we dream big. What adults see as abstract and impossible, is possible to to a child. As kids, we want to be mothers, teachers, hair dressers, doctors, lawyer, waiters, dancers and zoologist. We never once doubt our dreams or think of the steps it will take to get us there. We simply dream. As…

Mindful Monday #139 – Baby Steps

It’s Monday! I have a week left of wrap on my current movie. Then I am unemployed the rest of the year until the next movie comes my way. I plan to use my down time to write and redirect aspects of my life towards my bigger picture. Working a freelance life takes discipline. You…

Blind Trust

I’m filled with emotion. I just saw a screening of a movie that I worked on last fall, called “La La Land”. It was amazing and is perhaps the best movie I have worked on in my career. The cinematography and art direction is beautiful, the story a universal story – that everyone can relate to and…

I’m Thankful For: Freedom

This year, I had a few realizations that I have not written about yet. I have only verbally shared some of those realizations with a handful of friends. Some realizations require backstory in order to grasp the depth of the realization, others I am in the midst of understanding deeper and some I am not…

Tune Tuesday #28 – Happy

“You’ve never been to Vegas?” My friends ask that question each time I tell them, I’m from Arizona and I’ve never been to Vegas. When I was girl, I was curious about the city, because of the movies and as I got older, I never cared to visit the city. This past December everything changed,…

I’m Thankful For: Quality Time & Quality Friends

I’m experiencing an abundance of joy and I do not know where to begin? I work diligently towards my goals, but I forget to look around at the life that I am building. Location was the pause I needed to see the love and light in my life. Life is filled with beauty. I realized…

A Place Called Home

This weekend was ABSOLUTELY PHENOMENAL and by far the best weekend of 2016. I loved every bit of it. In the past three months, I have only been in Los Angeles for 12 days, which has provided so much perspective on every aspect of my life. Living on location for a month has helped me…

Mindful Monday #97 – Make Sure it Makes You Happy

It’s late Monday night. I’m still at work. This weekend was the perfect balance of what rejuvenates me. I slept in and rested, got errands done, explored this new temporary city of mine and went to two theatre events. While at dinner on Sunday night I thought, I’m happy. A few weeks ago, my friend…

Life at Light Speed

Happy New Year! It’s so good to be back here writing. We have only been in the the new year for ten days. I am amazed with how different this year has already unfolded compared to last year. Last year, with my permission, the universe took away anything that no longer serves me, including friendships. I was left…

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…
