I’m Thankful for: Place and Time

I woke up Wednesday morning feeling the most rested I’ve felt in two weeks. In recent weeks I would wake up in the middle of the night or twice in a night then go back to sleep. Or I would sleep through the night, but wake up early (between the hours of 4am – 6am)…

I’m Thankful for: Seeing Beyond My Limitations

This morning, I woke up just like every other day. However, today is not like every other day because yesterday I wrapped the last movie of my career. I wanted to go out and celebrate this milestone, instead I went home exhausted and in need of rest. I have a cold. It is typical for…

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…

I’m Thankful for: Intuition

It’s Friday. I post gratitude posts on Thursday, but these past few weeks I have wanted to break form. I must honor it and follow my intuition. It wasn’t until I studied improv three years ago, that I learned all the ways that I have stifled myself. Choosing to be silent in times of conflict…

I Am Thankful for: The Idle Moments

The universe meets me in the idle moments, each time I take an extended break. That’s when I gain the most clarity. I told The Answered Prayer. “The universe meets you in all your idle moments these days.” He responded. This is a broad overview of the conversation we had before I left in early June. It wasn’t until…

I’m Thankful For: Freedom

This year, I had a few realizations that I have not written about yet. I have only verbally shared some of those realizations with a handful of friends. Some realizations require backstory in order to grasp the depth of the realization, others I am in the midst of understanding deeper and some I am not…

I’m Thankful For: Self Acceptance

The weekend felt ordinary. Late Monday night I realized more happened below the surface than I could see. I was home more then I was out. The 3 intentional activities that I did, were filled with open, positive people who are more strangers than acquaintances or friends. As we talked, each person shed light on…

I’m Thankful For: Chance Encounters

Last week my friend was in town. I’ll call her the traveler. It was late July in 2014 when I met her. She was in town visiting a friend and I had just gotten back from my month of writing. I debated going out that night, to visit my friend at his restaurant, but I decided to…

I’m Thankful For: New Shoes

I have recommitted myself to the habit of working out daily. Thus far, I have only been able to work out 2-3 times a week, because of my schedule. But, I celebrate the fact that started the habit. I am enjoying working out and I have extended the amount of time I work out, which…

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.

I’m Thankful for: Singlehood

Today’s Thankful Thursday has been on my mind for a month. Singlehood, depending on your age and gender, has different societal constructs and personal meanings that change at different stages of life. Often articles list reasons why we should enjoy being single to help someone get through a breakup. Other articles discuss the importance of…
