Cora… You Need To Stop.

I need to stop.  I need to slow down.  I need to stop pushing myself; putting so much pressure on myself.  I’m running myself to the ground in the effort to eliminate space.  I’m filling every gap of time with Emails Screens Scrolling Clicking Submitting So much friggen scrolling and clicking. I’m not looking out, I’m only ever looking down. I’m running at full speed Ramped…

Let’s Talk About…Food. Recent Foodie Catchup.

How about we mix a little Lately: Kitchen Creations, recent eats and some random foodie rambles together. Mmm? Because as much as I prefer to eat my food, talking about it is can be pretty fun, too.  So let’s talk about… Montreal Bagels! Oh man. I’m officially such a fan. I can’t get enough of their super doughiness (FYI it took me forEVER to…

Bravery Is A Muscle: Week In Review

Bravery is a muscle.  Muscles are not only bulging biceps, twitching delts or popping calves built at the gym… we have emotional and mental muscles, too. And, like those muscles in the gym, they must be worked consistently if we want them to exist. These mental muscles however – in my opinion – can be some of the most challenging to work.   Sorry. Gross picture. But I had to.   Different people find different things…

Soften: It Is Fear That Paralyzes Us

Soften. I’ve had this word on repeat over the past week or so.  Not “breathe” Not “relax” Not even “release.” But… soften.  It seems to work in a completely different way than the rest. Like an authority figure that immediately gets your respect and attention. My body understands it.  If you’ve been reading recently I think you’ll know that I&#8217…

Eating From a Box: What I Ate Wednesday

I am such an advocate for whole foods. I absolutely want us all to eat a lot of real food. Simple food. Straight from the garden/farmers market/local/homemade as possible. Veggies veggies veggies veggies etc. etc.   And I don’t think that’s hard. In fact its incredibly easy. And can be very inexpensive. Take my Edesia Bowl, for example. The simplest whole foods thrown together to make one easy, beautiful and nutrient dense…

Perseverance: The Diary of an Actor Going After Her Dreams

  I feel like I may need to rename my blog, “The diary of a struggling actor going after her dreams.” As I now transition away from training mode – which is the only phase you all have ever known me – into the real world, my life is going to revolve around auditions, hope, prep, rejections, auditions, hope, prep, rejections. This blog of mine may very well serve to document the life of an…

Week In Review: Baking, Writing, Meditating and Pushing Through

Last week was bloody hard.  Everything right now feels pretty hard. I finally beat down my anxiety which took a lot of work, and then took a lot of tears and discomfort and will power to not revert back to the numbing-ness of anxiety when I let myself feel what was underneath it all. Sigh. Life is just hard you guys.  But I’m not alone in this. I know we all share it. Feelings are…

Falling In Love With the Beauty of Food: My “Edesia” Bowl (Recipe)

My Edesia Bowl is very special to me.  A warm, veggie filled bowl overflowing with taste and texture and chalk full of whole food nutrition. Gluten free. Vegan.      I don’t think I’ve ever talked about what started me on my road to recovery from an eating disorder.  It was actually, as anti-climatic as this sounds, falling in love with the beauty of food.  Growing up, I…

Let’s Get Saucy! Thai Peanut Sauce Recipe (What I Ate Wednesday)

Who out there is feeling saucy!? Oh who are you kidding, I know you all have some sauce when you want to. You sassy minx, you.    And yes, I do too.  In fact, I have three! It just so happened that my eats from Tuesday won out in the spread, marinade, and sauce category, so I’m here to spread (get it?) the love by sharing with you one of my ultimate favorite sauce…

Mind-Body Connection and Finding the Hidden Reasons for Anxiety: Week In Review

One of the things I like most about Meg’s Week In Review, is how it forces/encourages us to break down our…lives, in a sense…into one week periods. Each weekend I look back on the previous 7 days… only the previous 7 days… and assess what they felt like. How I felt, what I did, how I was affected and therefore, what I am learning.  I don’t…
