“You think can just entirely get rid of something about yourself?” I recently heard a someone say, “No. Whoever told you that is a liar!” “Well no,” I’d replied, “I just keep thinking that if I work hard enough it will like… go into remission or something.” Ha. I guess it kind of works like … Continue reading Ain’t That Some Shit
Mid January. Two weeks into the New Year. Somewhere between establishing new habits and abandoning them completely. Yes? Yes. Here’s what keeps coming up for me: Start with the end in mind. Everywhere I look. Everywhere I turn. Everything I read. Every time I create a marketing piece for the studio, program a workshop or … Continue reading WHY
It’s how I’ve been able to see the other side of the struggle, and love them.
I want to talk to you about this time I felt stuck. Really stuck. Really down. Really not myself. Depressed. I would actually classify this thing that happened, that I’m coming out of, as depressed.

What’s coming up for you?” Me: glare. Then a loud, overstated, “IT’S AFTER 9PM, I’VE BEEN UP SINCE 6 AND IT’S THE FIRST … Continue reading ME, MYSELF, AND I
I’ve been reading a lot lately about energy, about the signals, vibrations and pulses we send out, and what we receive in return. I’m super geeking out about it. Like a lot. So much so, that if you happen to (be ever so fortunate as to) run into me in person, be prepared to hear … Continue reading (DON’T) FREAK OUT
“You like living in chaos,” I was informed recently. “I do not!” I replied immediately (and indignantly).” I like routines and structure. For some things. Sometimes. For a few parts of my life.
