Intuitive Eating with IBS (Guest Post with Joyce from The Hungry Caterpillar)

Today I have a very special guest post for you! My dear friend Joyce from thehungrycaterpillar blog is not only a FABulous writer – clear, relatable, open, honest – but has also paved her way as a “go to” in the world of IBS and low-FODMAP eating. She has shared her journey through the elimination phase of the low-FODMAP diet in order to heal her struggles with IBS, and now continues to help others going…

Life Rambles and Recent Little Things: How to Balance Time, Work and Life Goals

  Hi friends,   I miss writing. I miss navigating my life and unraveling my thoughts through words and pictures that relate comfort.    Life rambles    I’ve been busy and feel like I don’t have time for a lot of the little things I like/want to do.  On one hand this is positive because I’m busy – or trying to be busy – putting more time into my…

Intuitive Movement: The Excitement in Finding New Ways to Exercise (Week In Review)

More and more, I’m learning how important movement is to me.  Twice now in the last year, I’ve even had acting teachers, who’ve hardly known me, tell me that I need to find ways to incorporate movement into my artistry. Somehow, they could see something I’m just now beginning to see.      Ever since I was super, super young, I was always found prancing around in my living room…

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…

Week In Review: The Links and Resources Edition

It just so happened that a lot of what I did last week involved links, so I’m taking that as an opportunity to share some recent things I’ve been using or enjoying with you.  I still see all these things as accomplishments. I see doing anything that is either new, something that has been on your to do list, something that you learned, or anything that benefits your soul in the self care…

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…

Week In Review: Getting outside, Getting a job, and Doing What Is Uncomfortable

This week… it felt as though a sense of control was starting to find its way in. Things still feel weird as I continue to adjust and messily fill my schedule with trial and error activities, but last week some things began to feel a bit more grounded.  There was lots of that feeling of summer starting. You know that feeling I’m talking about? The first few days where you get to walk outside…

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…
