Chatter – Ep. 29 – June 3, 2016

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 […]

PROFESSIONALISM. No matter what your job is, or where you work, you will encounter people who challenge your sanity with their unprofessional behavior. That’s going to happen, and sometimes…sometimes all you can do is smile through your frustration and learn from their mistakes. Whether it’s a coworker who fails to do her job to the extent […]

DREAMS. Firstly, I’M BACK, PEOPLE! Most importantly, though, this week’s episode is all about coping. Sometimes you have a crush that isn’t reciprocated, sometimes you have a plan to reach a goal and it doesn’t work out the way you expected, sometimes you think you know your path and you hit an insurmountable roadblock. So deal […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

ADVENTURE. I’ve discovered, over the course of my varied and often turbulent dating life, that learning and growing together is imperative to building a healthy and long-lasting relationship. But this isn’t just about romantic love. The need for adventure and shared experiences extends to other types of relationships, and that has never been more apparent […]

RELATIONSHIPS. Murky waters, these things we navigate on our quest for love or fulfillment. But I’m of the mind that the most successful relationships are between two whole people, people who know and love themselves because that’s how you can best give to and receive love from other people. Only when you are truly who […]

CREATIVITY. My dad says that there’s a solution to everything, you just need to be creative. He’s right. I don’t just mean you should be creative and paint or write or draw or sculpt. I mean, be creative in solving problems. Think of ways to get what you want/need/desire/require, because there’s a way – even […]

KINDNESS. I’ve been meeting a lot of people for work lately, and the common thread that runs through each of these conversations is kindness…or the lack thereof. Some of the people I meet rise above their situations, some need a little help. But all of them could’ve benefited from having the support of just one […]
