Mindful Monday #170 – Be Your Own Role Model

It’s Monday! By the time you read this I will be wrapping up a 4 day silent meditation at Joshua Tree. Yes, that is right I am currently at a 4 day silent meditation! I can’t believe it either! Something shifted in the fall of 2016. Around that time, I realized I would be okay…

I’m Thankful for: Blowing Out the Walls of Fear

It’s almost a month since I have been back from my two month summer hiatus. I approached those months with intention. I wanted to write my first book, deepen my spirituality and focus on my health and energy. Every step of the way there was a road block or detour. I breathed through each irritation and while I…

Sometimes You Need to Scream

Today calls for some much needed screams. Yet, I am silent. While I want and need to, I won’t actually let go and lean into the flow to scream. In improv, I was prompted into a life or death situation to elevate my emotions so that I can perform from that emotional place. I tried…

Step Into Faith

My current improv class is an awareness class. In each class, we are asked to observe our habits and be aware of how our body feels and moves. Various exercises help us discover and unlock our natural triggers from our emotions, space, movement and sound to be a foundation to create a character. Creating characters…

Mindful Monday #112 – Energy

Improv is back in my life and I love it! I have been studying for over three years. I first studied the craft for a year and half and I noticed that I had a long way to go. Being completely raw and real on stage was frightening every time and it did not seem…

I’m Thankful for: Mentors

There is a moment on everyone’s journey where we get lost, don’t know what direction to choose or question our strength.

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…

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 #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…

A Series of Leaps

“All roads lead to this…” I have told myself repeatedly these past few weeks. It all started with a harmless post on the gifts that come from breakups. What I initially wanted to say, evolved into something different and guided me to a deeper reflection. The day Breakeven pt I posted, all I could think…

Mindful Monday #82 – The Unexpected

Happy Monday! I watched two movies this weekend which were disappointing. At one point I thought, why am I watching this? I continued to watch because I wanted to know how the story ended. There is always an excitement when we watch a movie and are on the journey with the character. We hate it…
