Chatter – Ep. 30 – June 10, 2016

FEEL MORE LIKE YOURSELF. There are a million reasons why it’s super important to take care of yourself, and one of them is that if you feel more like yourself – happier in your own skin, more comfortable in your brain, more secure in your heart – you will be a better person to the […]

GRACE. It’s super easy to get swept away by the emotion of a situation, to allow yourself to embrace the first reaction. But I’m working on thinking before reacting out loud in front of other people – because, really, it’s just this moment that’s terrible/sad/stressful/frustrating. The next moment, and the one after, can be better […]

PINK VIRUS FUNDRAISER! This is the last Chatter I’ll be harassing you about this, and I hope this is the last time we need a fundraiser, and I pray that it’s because we finally get to push the vaccine forward and get it to market within my lifetime. We’ve got lives to save, people. Join […]

PERMISSION. It’s time we all give ourselves permission to be happy, to put ourselves first, to do what we want and need, TO SAY NO. One thing I’ve learned in the past week is that it is vital to know your limits, to practice self-care, and to allow yourself to put your needs above the […]

SCATTERED. Ever wondered what it would be like to take a walk through my brain? Here’s your chance. This week’s episode is meandering, messy, and maybe a little scattered (a lot scattered). It’s a glimpse into what happens when I stop working for half an hour to address you, my lovely friends, and all the […]

TAKING THE RISK.     I met a kid the other day who moved out here from NYC a month ago. He doesn’t know a soul out here except the people at the job he moved here for, and he left the dude he’d been seeing, and I applaud him for making the move. But here’s […]

PERFECT. I don’t mean model-skinny, or super rich, or anything like that. I mean…perfect. Perfectly true to who you are in your core. Perfectly authentic to your real self. Perfectly, exactly where you are in your journey toward self-realization. Whoever you are in any moment of living authentically, is perfect. So don’t let anyone shake that […]

COSPLAY. Lord have mercy, y’all. I’m spending my weekend with a bunch of nerds, and I couldn’t be happier. However, I have one little gripe: I hear people saying that if you’re a cute girl and your cosplay is in any way inaccurate, there’s some negativity coming your way. Why? Probably because people assume that […]

  PERSPECTIVE. I know, it feels like the world is crushing you. And you feel like maybe you should just walk away from it all. But remember these two things: 1. You are still here, after all the bad things that have happened in your past, so this bad thing won’t break you. 2. This […]

EX-RELATIONSHIPS. Not ex-partners, that’s way too much to talk about in half an hour. But ex-relationships, the baggage they create, mourning their deaths, the lessons you learn from them, and the pieces of them you carry with you in the future…yeah, there’s something to talk about. Maybe the key isn’t to avoid having baggage, or […]
