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.

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…

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…

Mindful Monday #75 – Resonate

Happy Monday! I have been studying improv for almost three years. While I have noticed and written about my growth in my daily life as a result of improv, I have failed to see my growth inside the class room. In the beginning, I often had to remind myself that I am a novice in…

Mindful Monday #73 – New Growth

The happiest of Monday’s to you my friends. This weekend was amazing and filled with so much good that I am glowing. I went to a fundraiser event for an arts therapy non-profit, attended a pot luck dinner, I got my chores done, and on top of that there was spontaneity and a lot of…

Wisdom Wednesday #39 – Move Along

Happy Wednesday! If you look back to my posts these past few weeks you’ll see a pattern of posts about struggle and challenge. The fact is, I’ve been within the struggle for sometime, but recently it’s became unbearable. Life really pushed me these past two weeks. I thought I made the right choice from the…

Double Down

It is hard to live in the unknown, but everything in life is unknown. Life is created moment by moment and some moments we can and cannot predict. I’m currently living in a moment that I predicted a few weeks ago, but never imagined a few months ago. My current situation in life will work…

White Blank Page

I’ve been feeling antsy lately like there is something more I could be doing, but I don’t know what that is? I haven’t figured out what prompted this feeling and where it is guiding me. January was All Things New: new job, new apartment, new friends, new community involvement and a new leadership role. February…

Wisdom Wednesday #31 – Overlooked Beauty

Happy Wednesday.  This weeks Wisdom Wednesday I saw a few years ago on Facebook.  The message from the interview always struck a chord with me as a student of acting and improv. When you step into the shoes of a character and get to know that character you are never the same. To become a…
