Week In Review: Being Intentional About Being Intentional

Hey friends! I don’t know if you read my post on Thursday, but basically I wrote about this feeling of uneasiness I’ve been trying to fight for the past little while. This inability I’ve had to focus or do any one thing at one time. With my whole new change of routine, plus more time to myself, this unrestlessness – I think – makes a lot of sense.  But regardless, by mid last…

Thinking Out Loud: Living With Intention

  I’ve been having a bit of a hard time this past week or so (and no, not anything to do with my little injury either).  Just something internal that’s been rather hard to figure out.  I’ve been having a really hard time just…. getting my head on straight.  Ya know? I’m feeling very unfocused. Scattered. Unpresent.  Feet not firmly on the ground I feel like everything…

The Realization That This Is How It Is: Getting Jacked up #2

For those of you who stopped by yesterday, thank you. Yesterday’s post paints an image of how I am feeling, in a general sense, now in my life. Something I am very thankful for. I write posts like those to keep reminding myself what true health, happiness and nourishment means to me, especially maybe when those thoughts start to dwindle. Like… last week. Last week, guys, was brutal.   I got jacked up. Again.  &nbsp…

Feelings and Food: My Struggles With Intuitive Eating

Goodmorning friends,  I’m currently sitting at a McDonalds having an early morning breakfast and (decaf) coffee. I have an appointment with a dietician across the street, so I’m just having some sit down time before going in.  This dietician. I saw her for the first time about a month ago.  It wasn’t really something out of my choosing, but rather a request from the nurse I’ve been seeing.&nbsp…

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…

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…

Week In Review: Mood Struggles and Help From Family

Hi guys,  Last week my parents, my brother, and my sister-in-law came to Toronto to attend my performances. It meant so much having them here and being able to show them what all my hard work has been for… and to just show them what I love to do.  The shows went really well, and hanging out with my family has been so wonderful. However I still had a really tough week. I…

The Desire to Purge: The Costs of Being an Introvert and Super-Feeler

Over my holiday, I had so many wonderful days. I think as you saw in my posts during Christmas week,  especially this one, I embraced allowing myself to feel that full hearted, wonderful feeling of focusing on what is important – spending time with family, relaxing at home and listening to the quiet. That day, in particular, was oh so wonderful.  And thennnnn…… the next day happened.  I had something very interesting happen to me at…

Remembering What is Important and a Merry Christmas Eve

Hello dear friends It is afternoon here on Christmas Eve Day. My house is filled with a beautiful silence. I know it won’t last much longer,  as I anticipate the arrival of my two brothers and their partners (and their dog). I’m sitting here by my window ledge looking out at the snow, drinking a mug of hot coffee and snacking on a collection of chocolate edibles. I just finished up a…

Lessons in Letting Go

Huh. So I wrote this post nearly a month ago now. I kept putting off publishing it for this and that reason. When you start a post so far in advance, sometimes it – after time – begins to feel disingenuine because it no longer feels applicable to your current state. But theeeeeeen last week happened. And things kind of made a full circle. Maybe it was just waiting for the right time… Does anyone know what I mean…
