you can

Letting go... It's not just something we do with our stuff, it's a way of life. It's a balancing act. Oh but it's not act. It's a choice. A daily one. 

I coach people through the process of "purging". I've been told that just my presence alone has helped these individuals finally make a choice. Keep. Don't Keep. Shred. Donate. TRASH. And oh how liberating the trash CAN, can be. Even the word encompasses self empowerment. 

You can throw out what isn't working for you anymore. The thing is, we don't think we can and understanding this folly is the our first step toward change. Changing our minds, to be more exacting. Our mind is the problem. Did you know that? Well, it is. 

One of my favorite quotes is; "If you think you can, you can." ~Meryl Streep. 

It worked for her didn't it? She must have thought eons ago; I can be an actress. I can be a very successful one too! And viola! Oh but it's not that easy. 

Meryl Streep was turned down for a role in King Kong and was actually told by the casting director that she wasn't pretty enough. "You're not pretty enough."  someone once said to MERYL STREEP.  

Flash forward, three Oscars later, I don't think she cares. I don't think she ever did. Not enough to stop her. And that's my message to you. Don't give into those thoughts (pretend they're sociopathic casting directors in your head) telling you that you're not worthy of a home - of space. Of love and comfort. Success. Structure. Balance. Beauty. 

You are. 

Letting go starts in your mind. If you think you can let it go, you can. If you think you can't, then change your mind. You can do anything. You are that capable. You are that worthy. 

Just give yourself time. Time is all we have. It doesn't mean it's going to be easy. It just means you're willing to see how it goes, with time. Life is weird enough as it is, we don't need to put unreasonable pressure on our self. We do need to put a plan together though, or just create some options for reducing the chaos. Self help books work wonders. Positive self talk. Good surroundings. Youtube. Meryl Streep movies. ME. 

Life is chaotic. We need a plan for action because we don't need to feel any that non-sense in our home. Home is where the heart is and the heart is where you are. Keep it simple. Un-complicate the complicated by making a choice each day to face your shit. Because why? Because it'll be less shit you have to face tomorrow. And less in MORE. It's more wonderful. 

Just LET GO. Clutter is not just stuff. Clutter can be emotional. It can be trauma caused by people. It can be a relationship where someone is filling a space you don't have room for anymore. It's someone you've outgrown because they're not developing with you - meeting your needs, thriving with you somewhere in the middle. This takes from you your self worth and your time. You energy. Your life

Take it back because... you can.

my own hero

I just realized I've been away for over a year, and for nearly a year I've been back in Los and working harder than I've ever worked in my wildest days. I wrote a tv show about my life ... and some big things are happening right now.  I just wanted to share something very personal... about myself. Per usual, but this time I'm taking you and myself back to where it all began - to the day I died so that the hero in me...  could be conceived .  I went to 17 schools as a kid, and that’s not counting community college. I failed the first grade because I was unable to focus past the gnarly curveballs that life had already started throwing at me. I sat alone at the lunch table in 5th grade every single day while resisting a strong urge to cry just long enough to get home, where I could sob in the privacy of my own bedroom, where I spent most of my time writing to escape the loneliness that was my actual life. In 9th grade, I sat outside with a p


Them: Don’t burn bridges.   Me: I’ll blow a muthafuckin bridge up. And the flames will light the way... I deal with more let downs than I can count on one hundred and fifty hands. Lifetimes of let downs - as a creative, as a dreamer. As person. And yes, I’ve become more and more vocal because of it. And that’s pretty damn vocal considering I was born vocal. But, because I was silenced as a child (told to “shut the fuck up” every time I used my voice to speak my mind) my voice as a woman, is well, really loud. This doesn’t mean I’m screaming at everyone. It just means I’m not afraid to be myself and speak my mind. I’ll say the things most people will only think to themselves and I have no shame. For anyone who thinks I’m inferior to them be it personal or in my career fields (also personal), my torch is lit. I am important. I am inferior to no one. And neither are you. And yes, this spawns from a recent let down.  Though, the smoke has cleared. 💅🏽 And the funny thing is, it’s be
