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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

Seeing The Beautiful Things.

  Last weekend, as Dan and I took ourselves out for lunch at Panera bread, there was a woman sitting at the table beside us. She was on her own, drinking a big foamy latte and slowly munching away at a big, delicious, sugary muffin. She was reading some sort of self-learning book.  She was just sitting there. Enjoying herself. Relaxing. Reading. Completely on her own in the mid afternoon.    A couple days…

Week In Review: Gracious and Humble

I’m trying to figure out what I’m feeling right now. I think maybe gracious and humble feel right.  I’m humble because of the mistakes I’ve made and gracious because of how they have opened my eyes. I feel like I’ve been sent a little message to start making some changes for myself. I’ve been reminded of what is important in my life and reminded that those are…
