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…

I’d Rather Be With My Pencil Crayons (Thinking Out Loud)

How am I? …. I’m really not sure to be honest with you. I’m good… But not in a hyper, energized, talkative and bouncy kind of way. I don’t even know if I can say I’m “happy.”   Am I happy with my life, as it stands at this moment? No…. I’m not really. I don’t have an acting job. My dreams are…

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…

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…

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…

Words For a New Year. Ease, Acceptance, Confidence, Propelled

Oh you guys, Well the time has come. The cluster of days where your blog feeds are swarmed with post after post of New Years reflections, “best of” roundups, resolutions and goals for the new year to come. Last year I wrote a post that still very much sticks with me. It was the first time I let go of this sense of new years “goal” making, and rather began my journey into a more compassionate mindset regarding…

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…
