Finding Moments To Stop and Do Nothing: Necessities in a Busy Week (Week In Review)

Wowwww What a week. As they all are… If I’m learning anything prominent in this life (ha) it is that – especially in seasons that seem overwhelmingly busy or chaotic – it is absolutely imperative to take moments to just stop and do nothing. I had three noticeable examples of this this week, each sticking out to be equally glorious and necessary.  In regards to what I wrote about last week, I stand by…

Week In Review: Career Guilt, Buckling Down and… Glitter

Hi friends, How are you? I missed last week’s Week In Review so am feeling a little out-of-routine. I apologize now – this post is heavy on actor stuff. Maybe you can substitute your own goals or career path to make it more relatable? This last week was freaking hard. Emotionally I just… man, I just had a really hard time.   You know what I discovered? I discovered that of all the triggers that…

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…

Thankful For The Women I Have In My Life (Week In Review)

You know, life is a hard thing.  It can be really, really hard. For many numerous and varying reasons. It doesn’t matter our history, our health, our financial status etc etc…. each one of us will and does have our own set of struggles or heart breaks or barriers to cross.  So when I come across people in my life who perform these – even miniature sized – acts of kindness, and give over a…

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…
