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…

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…

The Happy Ending or Happy Beginning?

Have you ever had a moment where something you said sticks with you? It’s not a statement you regret, but something deeper. Something simple that you said in the moment with little to no thought that lingers on in your mind long after the conversation ended. It’s almost like the thought begs you to explore…

Tune Tuesday #6 – There’s Gotta Be More to Life

It’s Tuesday. I thought Mindful Monday was my favorite day, but Tuesday is winning me over with all this music. This weekend I met a friends friend who opened up to me about her discontentment in life. She had no idea how she got on the subject and I said nothing to prompt her into…

Mindful Monday #62 – Are You Happy?

Happy Monday!  I’m back in Los Angeles.  I’m ready to write more reflections posts about what I have learned and how my life has changed since I took my leap of faith.  For this weeks Mindful Monday life is as simple as asking the following question: Are You Happy?  The perceived challenge to this question…

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…

Enjoy the Moment

Happy Friday.  This year has really taken off at light speed and I feel a bit disoriented.  I am doing my best to find my footing and gain balance with the pace of this new year.  While the days and weeks fly by, there have been several moments since the start of the year that…
