Week In Review: Time At Home

Hi lovely friends, Last week, to relive all the good feelings, I recapped my brother’s wedding. I didn’t have a chance to talk much more about my time at home, though. I don’t want to let the visit go by without documenting some of the life-giving accomplishments that were had during this time, so I’m using this week’s Week In Review to go back and relive some…

Is It Dangerous To Dream? (Thinking Out Loud)

Last week, I had an audition for the Stratford Festival. You may recall that this is my dream. Being an actor at this festival is the absolute, ultimate, biggest dream I have.  It was something to even be granted an audition, as this in of itself is a competitive area of decision. I was proud and so excited to even be given the chance to be seen.    The two weeks leading up…

Week In Review: Like Magic. What Makes Me Happy.

Oh hi! Oie Vey. What a week. Two weeks, really. I honestly don’t even know where or how to focus this post – other than just a smattering mind dump of some of the recent happenings that have gone on. I’m feeling really… wonderful. Energized, happy, full of life and spirit. I could still be running off the night of few-too-many cocktails I had last night. But hey, that’s better than…

Week In Review: How Camping Soothes The Soul

It’s really fascinating.  Just like when I returned from my weekend at the Folk Festival – where I camped and spent 24/7 outside in the fresh air – I have once again experienced the profound shift in inner thought and feeling that arises after I’ve spent time outdoors.  Last week was the week of camping. FINALLY I got out into the woods. I’m not feeling guilty for not having gotten around…

The Life Giving List – Healthy Ways to Spend My Time

I mentioned in a post last week how right now –  as I go through a pretty intense change of what my habitual way of living has been, and with that a whole slew of changes of thoughts and feelings – I am needing some extra “distraction.”  I am needing activities that I can do to literally take my mind off any coming anxiety and make the hours pass in a healthy way. That being said, using…

Creating a Life You Don’t Want to Run Away From

Many people spend their lives running.  And no, not the marathon kind. We spend so much time and energy running away from who we really are, what we really feel and what we really want to do. We distract ourselves with our iPhones the instant we have a moment of open space. We keep ourselves busy busy busy in order to avoid too much quiet time where our thoughts can get the better of us…

What I Loved (WIAW)

Last week, dear Kate themed her What I Ate Wednesday post, “What I Loved.”  Given the tragedies of yesterday –  the attacks in Brussels, as well as a tragic death in my home community –  it can be hard to find much positivity in this world we live in. It is easy to feel small and helpless, knowing there is nothing you can do to stop these inhumane actions that some feel the…

Week In Review: The Happiness Edition

Not only was yesterday the first day of spring/equinox – one of my favorite days to celebrate – but it was also International Day of Happiness. So this week I’m focusing my Week In Review on all things happy. Really though, this link up tends to be a weekly happiness recap regardless of the date. It always nudges me to look back and see all the things that made me smile and all the…

My Little “Routine”

You know those articles that present us with lists of things we should incorporate into our daily lives? “9 Daily Habits That Will Change Your Life.” etc… I stumbled upon one the other day,  and it got me thinking about all the years I spent trying to find my own routine.  All those times I tried to follow lists of health guidelines and suggestions thrown at us in countless web posts, but more often than not, failed…

Week In Review: Refreshed

The start of a new week. Wow. I can’t believe it has only been a week and a few days since Christmas. Seriously. It feels like a distant, distant memory of weeks past. But not in a bad way.  No. The opposite actually.  This past week, and especially just these past few days (once the festivities of both Christmas and New Years were all past) have been surprisingly wonderful. I am back in my single…
