So I want to apologize if many of my posts in the near-ish past have been weightier than usual. I'm going through some transformative times, and obviously, you all are along for the ride. I'm bringing this up because I didn't realize the gravity of my writing until I heard a couple of pieces of … Continue reading Shui What?
I went golfing last week. It was the first time in about a year (maybe eighteen months) since I had last been. We just went out on a short course... there were four of us, on a gorgeous L.A. day. It was my friend, G, her bf and his bff. G has been at the … Continue reading Keep Your Eye on the Ball
Dumped dumping dumper dumpster. Sucks ballz. I wasn't really thinking about this topic until the love of my life, Joseph Gordon Levitt, posted something for his creative group, hitRECord. Calling All Writers- write a first person account of being dumped and how it made you feel like something that's been thrown away. So I decided … Continue reading My Heart Will Go On
No, this is not an anti-gay post, lol. I'm talking about honesty and straightforwardness. I bring this up because there are some people in my life who aren't laying it down straight with me. I'm going to give them the benefit of the doubt and assume they don't know how I roll (even though they've … Continue reading Be Straight with Me
Five more open? Or so it seems. I've written about letting go before... how to do it, when to do it, why you would do it. But what happens after that? What happens when you truly walk away and let go? Well, all sorts of things. I think there is something brave and magical when … Continue reading When One Door Closes…
Last week, literally one hour before boarding a plane to New York, I wrote a post. It was slightly (okay pretty much) depressing, and a little victim-y, because I was going to two weddings over the weekend. Now, I think I need to redact the post. I'm not going to literally do that, as all … Continue reading My Wedding Weekend Part 2
Well, perhaps I should rephrase that. My weekend is full of weddings. First stop, Brooklyn, NY, where I will witness my dear friend, Dukes', wedding. I've been to Brooklyn once before... In fact, it was right before I started this blog. Dukes is artistic, creative, and super smart- but she doesn't flaunt all those amazing … Continue reading My Wedding Weekend
Putting in an offer. I've written about house hunting before. One of the steps in the process is providing proof of funds. I've done this multiple times now, and each time, I am reminded of what I am currently worth. It's not a lot, but it's better than Carrie Bradshaw. When the topic of … Continue reading What’s Your Worth?
I know we always hear about those days, or weeks, maybe even years... those ones that just aren't yours. You know, you wake up on the wrong side of the bed. Everything you say is misunderstood. You're late. "It's not your year this year.... maybe next year." I think things like that go in cycles … Continue reading The Magic Hour
I don't want to take credit for the title of this post. The very lovely Augusta, gets the props for this post's designation. We were in Italy, in training, discussing speaking. Or speaking up, more specifically. When something happens that is less than favorable in life, we have a choice. And Augusta blurted out this … Continue reading React or Respond
