Building the Case for Marriage

Last year was filled with many surprises. The themes that came up in my life were even more surprising, because some of them defined my year. Marriage. One of the most charged words in the English language. Everyone has an opinion and view on the topic. There are several images and ideas that are freely associated when…

Gratitude in an Uncertain Time

I’m trying my hardest to stay zen day in and day out. I’m not doing well with this intention. I notice my breath restricts when I hear the news or when I read articles in my news feeds. So much is at stake and I want to stay informed. Once upon a time I wanted…

Outlook 2017: The Cards are on the Table

 2016 was a tough year, if not the toughest, for so many people. Many negative comments regarding 2016 have populated my personal facebook feed for the past month. Never before have so many people wanted a year to be done so badly. It’s like 2016 was a bully, in actuality it was the year of truth. From…

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…

Tune #40 – Oh!

“Nothing in my life has changed this year with the exception of [one thing].” My friend told me as we caught up last week. Even though I started the conversation, I deliberately did not share any or all my good news. I did not tell her I was the happiest I have ever been, that…

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…

Wisdom Wednesday #65 – Wisdom of Adulthood

We often get caught up in our day to day life that we forget to step back and look at the bigger picture. The things that we get fixated on are not as important as the quality of our life. We often get caught up on what degree we are deserving of great things or…

Tune Tuesday #34 – Contemplating Life

Death has been circling me lately. Like my meditation on love, focus on my health and habits, lessons on energy and series that I have written in relation to the gifts of breakups, death wants to be seen and heard too. I am not a morbid person and I do not bring this topic up…

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: Clarity

I have worked on location three times in six years. My earlier experiences on location each pointed me towards an area of my life that I needed to explore further. This current experience has brought overall clarity in all aspects of my life, specifically in the areas that I have worked on these past three…

Mindful Monday #99 – Not Afraid

Working on location has been so insightful and it is one of the best things that I didn’t know I needed. I did not want to work on location for three years because I knew it would be more demanding. I was right. Work has been more demanding then I anticipated. However, so much has…

Mindful Monday #98 – Distance

Today marks three out of six days that I have been on location. The experience of distance at this time intrigues me. I have played with the idea of moving for sometime. I’ve even set the intention to the universe that I am willing to move, if/ when and where I need to move, to…

Mindful Monday #94 – Acceptance in the Present

“I feel like I woke up from a long sleep,” I told my friend this weekend. It’s been two and a half days since I have been back in Los Angeles. I went  home to visit my family and heal from a cold, and stayed longer because I was very sick. Now that I’m back,…
