Have you gone through a major life change? I’m talking the big stuff — like moving to a new state, starting a new career in a new field, getting married or divorced, having your first child, learning you have cancer or some other major health issue, losing a loved one, something like that. Something that…

Hope

Without hope, we have nothing. Life has its highs and lows, good memories and not-so-good ones. If you’re going through a low right now, I feel you. I go through them too. Take care of yourself. Be extra kind and gentle with yourself during this time. And above all, search for the hope. Find it.…

Keep Going — Your “Yes” Is Out There

I receive more no’s than yes’es. A lot more. Of course, on social media I usually only talk about the wins. But I only have those wins because I get so many rejections behind the scenes. I’ve learned that to be successful, you have to fail — a lot, and as often as possible. For…

Giving Up Control

Man, I am such a workaholic. Like seriously, it’s an addiction. I can’t — stop — thinking — about work! And not in the good way, like, “I love my job so much, I’m so excited, I can’t wait to do it again!” Ironically, the work I love doing (writing, acting, etc) is well enjoyed…

Manifesting: Pick 1 out of 3

Last Words

Friends, nobody knows which day is our last. So just in case this is my last chance, I want you to know: I love you. It’s okay. NOBODY’S perfect. You’re good enough. Be kind to others. Be even more kind to yourself. Trust your gut, even — especially — when the “experts” disagree. You know…

Doing Nothing IS Something

In the stillness, in the silence, new answers and new possibilities can emerge. Sometimes, doing nothing can lead to doing/becoming something meaningful, something important. There is a mysterious power in being centered and at peace, neither striving nor seeking, not growing or becoming; simply being. Simply resting. Simply doing and attempting nothing. There’s a strange…

Coming Out of the Spiritual Closet

So I came out of the “spiritual closet” last night. I’ve always been a very spiritual person. Like, seriously, you have no idea. I grew up Catholic. In the Catholic church, you’re not supposed to receive communion until AFTER a certain age, after you’ve taken certain classes, and gone through a little “First Communion” ritual.…

Being Lazy vs Doing Nothing

A friend on Facebook posted a great question about the difference between “doing nothing” and “being lazy.” I commented directly to his post, but wanted to share it here too. I know this is something I’ve struggled with A LOT, and still do if I’m honest with myself. This is as much a helpful reminder…
