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…

A Week of Celebration: My Brother’s Wedding

Hello there! I am now back and writing from my Toronto home, but if you’d had caught me two days ago, my desk would have looked a little more like this… home I spent last week at home with family to celebrate my brother’s wedding, which ended up being a week long celebration it seems. We aren’t even Ukrainian, but boy did I get a taste of what those “three days weddings…

Levels of Stimulation: Where Is Your Sweet Spot?

Mmmmm how bout THAT for a titlating title, huh!? Don’t worry, we’re keeping things PG here on the spoon. Just doing some thinking out loud.      So the other week I was going into a coffeeshop to spend an hour or so doing some writing, as I often do. I’ve mentioned many times that coffee shops are my happy place. They are where I get the most done and…

A Day In The Life: My First Job (What I Ate Wednesday)

I have two jobs.  One, is my “joe job.” It is the one that, at the moment, is there to pay the bills. Thankfully, I love it. I host and serve at my all time favorite vegan restaurant. The people are glorious, its always crazy busy and the food is….so good.  But my first job, is my life as an actor. Even when it is not paying me money, I see this…

How Hitting Rock Bottom May Be A Catalyst For Change

Yesterday (Tuesday)… was the worst. Like, one of those days that, as it is happening, you file into your top ten collection of worst days…ever.  I got on the wrong transit route not once, but twice. After having a driver miss my stop, then running four blocks, then having to take a taxi in a panic so I wouldn’t be late for an audition. Then riding the transit for two…

Hard Decisions, (Crappy) Job Luck and Typical Life Timing

I’m doing some classic Thinking Out Loud today to catch ya’ll up on a couple things.  First up…   Jobs.   Do you remember last summer my fiasco with the business I was working for, and how they went under and didn’t pay me? Yeah, well to catch you up on that….. I still haven’t been paid. I’ve been partnered with a claims officer for the entire…

How I am Learning to Unplug and Slow Down (Part 2)

In continuation of yesterday’s post… I’d like to share what I have been doing to unplug and slow down. And I do mean practice. This is work. Even after the initial discomforts, it is something that I’ve been needing to consciously put into place. Even schedule and plan. Maybe this is not needed for everyone. But for anyone like me who is sensitive to overstimulation yet finds themself…

Why I Am Practicing Unplugging and Slowing Down (Part One)

  I had much I wanted to say about today’s topic, so I am making this a two-parter. Today I am writing about the anxiety levels I have experienced over the last couple of months and the connection I found it to have with technology. Come back tomorrow when I will continue by listing the ways I have been practicing unplugging and how I am consciously making an effort to decrease my anxiety.  &nbsp…

Digesting Emotions. What I Learned From BodyTalk.

As I mentioned on Monday, last week I attended a BodyTalk session. BodyTalk is basically impossible to explain and rather should just be experienced first hand – but in short, it works to balance out what the body may be currently holding onto or suppressing, and which – as a repercussion – is affecting our mental state. The body somehow sends messages, guiding the practitioner to areas where there is an imbalance, or where extra attention is…

The Laments of a Highly Sensitive Person

Happy Sunday morning my doves, A part of me feels like I want to apologize for my post on Thursday. I know that is also a silly thing to do but work with me. That was the type of thing I would usually write in my personal journal. That day, a bit of a straw broke. I was exhausted from shoveling stress onto myself – totally self perpetuated, yet seemingly impossible to stop.  This exhaustion though…
