what inspired me this week?

Brian’s new photography site went live this week and I LOVE it.

Jen Pastiloff’s Project 30’s Q & A and then this follow-up vlog she did in response to it.

reminding myself that it’s ok to want to slow down a bit the next six months and simply enjoy the small things- taking care of myself is important.

an incredibly sweaty but AH-MAZING yoga class with Tamal and some of my favorite girlfriends Rachel, Katie & Sophie. Tuesday nights are fast becoming my favorite night of the week

“don’t give your mind so much power. most of its inner dialogue isn’t even rooted in reality. it plays upon your fears, insecurities and the more attention you feed it, the bigger the anxieties become. manage your mind, change your life.”
– Grace Yoga

my personal essay writing class at writing pad with Taffy Brodesser-Akner – she might be the funniest person I know.

what am I grateful for this week?

I had a really lovely afternoon visiting with my aunt Michelle and my mom-mom (grandmother) this week. One of the many joys of freelancing is that sometimes you have a Wednesday afternoon available to sit around with two of your favorite women and eat cheese and crackers and sip white wine. My mom-mom hasn’t been in the best health recently and it’s been really hard for me to accept, so moments like these are cherished.

what surprised me this week?

what inspired me this week?

– a wine & watermelon margarita fueled Friday afternoon with new friends Mary, Jacki & Lindsay and old friends Rachel & Erin. It was an epic afternoon in the sun. They are a seriously soulful and interesting group of woman.

– my new personal essay writing class at Writing Pad with Taffy Brodesser -Akner. There really is nothing better than spending a few hours once a week with other writers.

– yoga class with Tamal on Tuesday night. Every time I leave his class I wonder why I don’t make time for it everyday. I swear it changes my whole perspective.

– the new healing crystals (pink opal, serpentine, blue topaz & aventurine) that I bought in Sedona. I sound like a total hippy, don’t I?

– the book “Why We Write

– the book “How To Write A Screenplay in 10 weeks”. You know I love goals.

what am I grateful for this week?

– I think I found Frank!!

– finding a new therapist I loooooove.

what surprised me this week?

– everything you need always shows up exactly when you need it. Why do I forget this?
