You know that saying that everything happens for a reason? Well…I wrote that post on July… Continue reading Abundance
The truth is: I don’t really know what to say. Halfway through this year-long journey, it started to become clearer and clearer that I was going to fail…and fail BIG.

I can’t believe I’d never been there- it’s only 2 hrs away from where I grew up and it’s SO cheap to visit. Who knew that this… Continue reading Top Things To Do in Idyllwild, CA
If you’ve been reading this blog, you know I am an actress in Los Angeles, CA. This is one of the tougher towns/careers in which to find true happiness. But they sure do try to sell the idea of happiness to you! Everywhere you look there are people and companies selling workshops and classes telling you… Continue reading April 21st, 2016: The Science of Happiness Pt. 3
