This is 30.

At 5:52pm Pacific time, I officially leave my 20’s behind and transition into my 30’s. It’s a very strange feeling, knowing that I will never again have an experience where I say “when I was in my 20’s I…”. This morning I was planning on indulging in sleeping in, but my body woke me at… Continue reading This is 30.

Psychic, CHECK.

I did it! Checked one more off the list and went to a psychic with my best friend while she was visiting me from New York. I gotta say, getting a reading was way more fun when you have someone there to go with you (and have lots of wine afterwards and talk about your… Continue reading Psychic, CHECK.

Before I Go’s 30-day Meditation Experiment

“30 days has September…” During this year’s journey- and for many years before I got really serious about my mental health- I have been told (and shown) by numerous sources that meditation, even in a small amount, can do wonders for the brain, body, and soul. Positive thinking can literally change your cell make up. By changing… Continue reading Before I Go’s 30-day Meditation Experiment

Abundance

  So, the last time I updated this blog I admitted my big “failure”- that I wasn’t going to be able to make the “most important” goal on my 20’s bucket list happen: I had canceled my trip to Macchu Picchu. You know that saying that everything happens for a reason? Well…I wrote that post on July… Continue reading Abundance

Forgiveness.

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. The practical truth: I cannot afford, for a multitude of reasons, to go to Macchu Picchu this year. Even though I planned, even though I… Continue reading Forgiveness.

April 29th, 2016: Me too?

I’ve been toying more and more with the idea of sharing this blog with my friends and family. Slowly but surely I’ve told about 5 people who I know for sure won’t judge anything that’s on here, and who miraculously always see the world through nothing but kind and empathetic eyes. But for some reason,… Continue reading April 29th, 2016: Me too?

April 21st, 2016: The Science of Happiness Pt. 3

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

The Science of Happiness

It seems almost comical that there can be a “Science of Happiness”. Traditionally, “Happiness” seems like it should come organically- something bestowed on you from an outside source. But the more I research this subject, the more I draw the same conclusion: Happiness does not derive from the circumstances we find ourselves in, but how we… Continue reading The Science of Happiness

“Relax. It’s gonna be OK”

This past Saturday marked 100 DAYS of “Before I Go Blog”! I, of course, had all kinds of BIG PLANS to mark that day- so many ideas for posts and where I would be by this point. But when I looked at this long list of ideas, guess what? I got overwhelmed. And when I get… Continue reading “Relax. It’s gonna be OK”

Marry Rich

This week I had a career breakthrough and my yoga teacher exclaimed, “How exciting! So, is that [career] what you want?” And I, thinking I was being OH-so-Zen, replied, “I don’t really know. I’ve adjusted my thinking recently and all I want is to be fulfilled. However that comes, I’ll accept it.” I was expecting her to… Continue reading Marry Rich
