Mindful Monday 128# – Laugh

I have been working a live event since Thursday. (Examples of live events are concerts, conferences, seminar, conventions etc.) This is the third event I have done in my career and it’s different then what I am used to from a movie production stand point. There have been moments of frustration and confusion do to lack of…

Mindful Monday #127 – Transitions

In yoga, my instructor asked the class to focus on transitions. To me yoga is the practice of self-care. You are not competing with anyone, but yourself. Somedays you feel fantastic and are kicking each poses butt. Other days you may feel off, loose balance in your pose or don’t feel as strong. To help…

Mindful Monday #124 – I Love Unconditionally

I’m still reading Eastern Body, Western Mind by Anodea Judith. It’s starting to give me gray hairs because of it’s depth and honesty. The chapter I recently read is on the fourth chakra aka Heart Chakra which is in the center of the chest. When the heart chakra is deficient someone may be antisocial, critical, judgmental, intolerant, fear intimacy…

Mindful Monday #120 – Love Takes Off the Mask

During my writing/ away time, I am also serving the community. For one day a week. I am co-teaching a mother -daughter / father-daughter writing workshop for teenage girls. This week kicks off the third week of the workshop. I am teaching this weeks theme on the topic of perceptions. I learned this activity from Awaken…

Mindful Monday #118 – Everyone Struggles

The grass is always greener on the other side. We all know this wisdom and often live by it. In times of great weakness or struggle we throw the wisdom aside and step into a place where we question and compare our struggles to others. The record that overcomes our thoughts sounds like this: Why…

Mindful Monday #117 – Inner Peace

Last week was blissful. This week has been a continuation of that amazing feeling. The moment I stepped into self-acceptance, I felt my body soften into a calm that I have never experienced. The metaphorical water of my life feels at peace too. It’s beautiful. I am not a master or expert on inner peace, self-acceptance…

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…

Mindful Monday #106 – Mind, Body & Soul

Happy Monday! I am excited for this weeks posts. There are two topics that I have been dying to write about, but I needed time to find the words to express my thoughts and realizations regarding each of them. There have been a lot of realizations and shifts in my life and I’m loving all…

Mindful Monday #105 – Fall in Love with Taking Care of Yourself

Today makes one week since I have been home. My first few days back felt like I just moved here for the first time. I forgot what that experience felt like and I was surprised to experience it all again. Oh the ways I have grown in the past two months while I was working on location. I am a new person….

Mindful Monday #104 – Love with Open Eyes

I’m headed home! I finally get to relax at my home and rest in my own bed. I am extatic. Life is about the simple day to day joys. I’ve spent this past week making plans to fully integrate myself back into my community to grow more, learn more and meet new people. I can…

Mindful Monday #103 – You ARE LOVE

It’s Monday! I officially wrapped my most recent movie on Thursday (2/18). That movie was an adventure and demanding to the very end. This meditation on love has lead me to a place of understanding that I do not yet know how to communicate effectively. (But I am going to try.) A year ago a friend was…

Mindful Monday #101 – Love is Abundant

The more I meditate on love, the more I see and feel it’s depth. Many quotes just touch on the service of love, which makes it hard to find quote’s that express love as I am beginning to know it. Are we as a people only loving at loves surface? Are we just reflecting back…
