My Morning Walks…. July 3, 2013

I recently started a video project where I talk about what has gone through my mind during my morning walk.  And this is big for me and I’ll tell you why:  I have been a professional working actor for 17 years and during that time a certain preparedness was drilled into my head.  Professionalism to me meant to ALWAYS be camera ready.  That means script memorized, hair and make-up flawless and wardrobe top notch.  Going without make and a shower would be simply unheard of… but I wanted something different with these videos.  I wanted to be as raw, open and bare as I could be.  That said I had to be willing to be vulnerable and leave myself alone…. Hence my bare face without a stitch of make-up on.  I barely go to the grocery store without my eyelashes and eyebrows on!  Now here is my guilty confession…. I Like It!  It’s easy and ease is something I can really get behind right about now.  To allow myself to let that go has been quite liberating!  It’s still amazing to me what can happen when you leave yourself alone….

What would you do if you simply allowed it?

Lots of Love!!

What are you Gr8ful 4? November 29, 2012

A few years ago I did a Gratitude Experiment for a month and blogged about it…. And you know what I miss it. The intensity of it…

I’ve kept a Gratitude Journal for well over a decade now and I have always found myself to be a very Gr8ful human but I got to wondering…. What would be different if I stated my gratitude not only throughout the day but out loud so that others heard me.  Well I found out a few very powerful things:

  • It immediately pulls you into the moment and quiets the chattering monkey and the gremlins.  It allows you to hear your own authentic voice.
  • By sharing with others what they are Gr8ful for we energetically hold their and your intentions at a higher more healthy level for Gratitude to grow.
  • Hence the more you find to be Gr8ful for, the more you have to be Gr8ful for!

This month-long experiment was amazing! So what was an experiment, became be part of my everyday life.   Here are the 5 things I am Gr8ful 4, for today!

Today I’m Gr8ful 4:

  1. Beautiful delicious Sunshine!
  2. My scrumptious Boyfriend!
  3. Knitting for others!
  4. Organic and Locally made Nubian Heritage Shea Butter
  5. Chinese Herbs

I invite you to join me! Start telling me what you are Gr8ful 4 and see what shows up in your life. Tweet it, Facebook it or simply comment here.  I’d LOVE to know and share in this journey with you.

 

Lots of Love!

I simply wanted to share this YouTube clip this with you this morning. I was inspired by a friend on Facebook.  Pema Chodron is a remarkable Buddhist monk who in this clip talks about Maitri: Unconditional Friendship with oneself. The greatest gift and a direct route to helping us learn from our Karma. She is a remarkable woman!

Questioning…. April 29, 2010

I wrote something on my Facebook site today that I felt needed further explanation… the post was this:  Always be searching. Always be questioning. And when you think you’ve found the answer….. Start questioning some more because when we stop learning we die. What can you do today to stretch yourself?

The questioning that I am talking about is that of a child… with inquisitiveness.  Have you ever spent time with a child and every other word out of their mouth is “why?… why?…..why?”.  It’s not about being right it’s about learning, growing becoming a greater human being.  So when I say “When you think you have found the answer” ask why again. The day we stop is the day we become stagnant and our brain ceases to grow and we cease to grow hence we die.  So our child like questioning will not only keep us young but keep us Brilliant!

So I ask you How can you stretch yourself today? What can you learn today that you didn’t know yesterday?

LOVE
