Week In Review: Getting Out Of The Mess

Oh man you guys Last week was messy. Messy messy messy. It was just…really busy…I guess. Since being back from home, I’ve worked nearly every day. Eight days in a row. Ontop of that, it is now the beginning of the Toronto Fringe Festival, so in addition to opening my own show and fitting in my performances around my work schedule, I’ve been scheduling in where I can get out to…

Week In Review: What Makes You Feel Productive?

You know when life feels tough, even the smallest of things can feel like milestones? That was definitely a feeling I had a number of times last week. Sometimes the most simple tasks take even more effort to get out and do. Get me to feel accomplished about commuting to three appointments in one day?… mmm, maybe. But getting to the store to buy toothpaste? Bam. I deserve a throne.  What made me feel bad ass productive last…

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…

Week In Review: Coffeeshop Living, Flowers and Sun

Last week I… No idea what I’m doing? Go visit Meg and see what all the rage is about.  Baked. For the first time in so many weeks. It’s not that I havn’t wanted to but a) I want to clear my freezer out of ALL oldies before stuffing it with newbies b) I’ve been needing to put my time elsewhere and c) I am going through this weird…

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…

Week In Review: Time to Slow Down, Rest, Restore

I’ve already written a lot. I’ve written more about my craziness and up and down feelings in these past couple of weeks than I usually do, so I hope to keep this brief.  There is a balance between pushing yourself in a way that you feel proud, and pushing yourself a bit too far.  For instance last week’s Week In Review – I regret none of it. I feel…

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…
