Breakeven pt. II

Two weeks ago I scratched the surface on break ups with Breakeven pt. I. Once a relationship ends it feels like there is a real or imagined imbalance between the parties involved e.g. one person grieves more or dates right away and sometime one person finds their future spouse. We all grieve in different ways, When…

Mindful Monday #59 – Turn the Page

Do you ever have a moment in your life where you wish you had a camera to capture the moment?  Last week, I really wish I had a video camera or a documentary team to capture the main events and realizations that I had.  What. A. Week.  Something has epically shifted in my life and…

Shake It Out – My Month of Writing

I am embarking on a personal writing journey (Mindful Monday #10: Letting Go) for the Month of May.  I will write the third part of my solo piece (The Unimaginable), which is the hardest story to write to date.  I’ve avoided writing this story, I’ve avoided this storyline for almost a decade.  In all fairness,…

How to Let Go

We are in a world hurt.  My eyes have always been wide open.  I paid attention to everything as a little girl. One thing I noticed is how many people were unhappy or discontent.  In the idle moments, when people don’t think they are being watched, you can really see someone’s pain or unhappiness.  Everybody…

Leap of Faith – Update

Last week on Mindful Monday #8 I wrote about the Leap of Faith that is calling my name. For sometime I have played with the idea of ANOTHER redirection and my reaction has been in a stale mate.  I mentioned that my old way of being is pushing up against my new way of being…

Mindful Monday #8 – Leap of Faith

I am contemplating ANOTHER redirection. This month has been the hardest month of 2014.  At times I have felt like I am at the center of a hurricane, yet in those moments, to my surprise, I have remained grounded and calm. I have gained a deeper understanding on parts of my life that I didn’t…

Coming Full Circle

Sometimes the realization you have that point to your growth creep up on you.

Mindful Monday #5 – Pleasure with Pain

Life continues to show me reflections of my former selves through the people in my life.  And it’s been very hard to digest.  I multiplied the word self into selves because I believe each lesson is a step closer into a newer, wiser self.  At the same time we shed away older versions of ourselves…

A Change in Perspective

Almost three years ago I was on the biggest movie of my career (at the time.)  I was successful at living and working in LA since I moved.  I was living my dream and it was more amazing than I imagined.  Almost three years ago I was also on the hardest movie of my career. …

Cleansing My Soul

Last week I was on location in Houston. (This is the third time I have been on location in almost eight years since I have been in the industry and it’s the first time I have been on location since I have been in LA.) This show has been many firsts for me. It is the first…

The Unimaginable

I have been silent for a good part of my life. I was made fun as a girl and I never defended myself. I learned to be stoic to hide what I was feeling (Un-Masked). Kindness was my defense and as a result the teasing stopped. Having trouble with reading and writing added to my…

A Dream with a Deadline

“If you aim at nothing you’ll hit it every time.” – Zig Ziglar This year I had the same conversation with two different people about goals.  To my surprise I learned that both people have never set goals in their life.  A life with out goals is mind-blowing, since my life has been about goals…

Goal Setting Can Change Your Life

Change is inevitable.  I don’t fear change, I welcome it with my goals. My life long goal is to be the best person I can be and live my best life. I think stagnation means you are dead or close to it. Life is about living. I choose life. I have never been so attached to…

Out with the Mold

 “This used to be my saying.” My LA Spiritual Sister liked the quote and responded, “it’s still mine.” She still uses this quote today? I thought. “’I’m pretty sure I would still use the quote now. But I haven’t said it in a long time because I am surrounded by people whose opinions I value.” …
