My New Years resolution was to #makemoredinners I’ve not been great at it but I feel so happy when I do and pat myself on the back firmly.
When you cook for yourself it lets your body know you are about to eat! It puts energy and love into that food - which is the ideal thing to be consuming. Even when what sounds good is a plate full of prosciutto and chicken tortellini. Not pictured: extra asparagus I couldn’t wait to eat.

@miss_tashina tagged me to participate in our friends @tamarlevine and @nicalvarez project @wearealluncool a week ago. A project about breaking down the wall of only putting out your coolest self on the interwebs to see. I was instantly on board, but when tagged I went into negative self talk that I shouldn’t participate because I’ve never even been a cool kid, feels like I’ve always been the ‘uncool’ kid amongst the cool kids. But I guess that’s the whole point - that #wearealluncool and have baggage, quirks, and given burdens. While I already know how uncool I am maybe I have to remember that it’s pretty cool to be just the way I am. We are all cool, and uncool, and that’s the whole point of being human. SO.
1. I am an actor, and haven’t been acting. Acting since preschool and pursuing it professionally since high school. But the past 4 years I’ve been standing on the bottom of the pool while I was claiming to be treading water. Got jaded after moving down and didn’t know what to do. The biggest gift I’ve given myself recently is deciding to start where I am. Somebody who wasn’t ready to commit before. Somebody with years of training and old experience but is 97% out of shape and in need of getting back to class. I cant call what I’ve been doing these past few years as a 'Hollywood hustle’. In owning that, I’m changing that.
2. I avoided taking this photo this week also because I desperately wanted to shoot it with my hair straightened. I’ve been unhappy lately - I’m thriving, work is amazing, finally hustling - loving the results - but I am still unhappy. I’ve been trying to bring change into my life because I’ve been doing and wanting the same things since high school. I am desperate to breathe new air into my old world. Painting my nails, getting glasses, straight hair, rearranging my room. Posting straight hair felt crucial. Its not. I’m doing literally everything I know to make myself happy - and sometimes is ok to just let the unhappiness be there knowing that its just a growing pain. It’ll pass.
3. I wear socks and slip on shoes. Socks feel like hugs and slipons are too easy. So in a day with no thought, you can find me in socks and mocs.

Action. Reflection. Surrender. ⬆️➡️⬆️🔃
You can’t control the outcome, only the efforts and the mindfulness in which you put in. I’ve been trying to practice the sweet joy of surrendering to the mindful work I’ve happily laid in front of me and have left behind me. Patting myself on the back and pushing myself forward.

Well, I’ve finished my yoga teacher training at @onedowndog and its funny how it feels like both a comma and a period at the end of a sentence. A dash perhaps -
I haven’t known what to share! I do feel excited and accomplished and proud but mostly I feel eager. Eager to dive deeper, to get started, to work harder, to share, to look in. I think the pride and the accomplishment feels will come from the teaching, not the finishing the class. It kind of feels like something I’ve always been doing or have been working towards. Maybe that’s the awesome long program @onedowndog has where the yoga becomes a part of you and not just hours of training, or maybe its just me finding something good for me. I dunno, it certainly feels pretty suitable to be able to guide people on some breathing and moving, and maybe just a little thinking. (at ONE DOWN DOG)

A year ago today I picked up @arrowthecorgi. I actually can’t believe its been a year with this silly furry barky little friend. I wake up earlier, I look forward to walking in the door, I pick up a lot more poop, and there’s not a day I haven’t been grateful my dream tiny corgi with a tail came into my life. Pictured: our drive away from #willasangeles that first day and yesterday’s road trip back home.

I’ve just begun yoga teacher training with @onedowndog. I haven’t known what to say as it’s been coming because its an idea that feels so old but an action that seems perhaps a bit hasty. But it is right, so so right for just right now. I’m glad I waited until I was in a place to absorb and learn and grow as much as I am now. I’m falling in love with growing pains and fumbling through new explorations. In love with questions and patience with the answers. In love with remaining teachable and getting out of my own way. And absolutely in love with today’s lessons of buggy windshields and streams of water. The next few months are going to be… (at ONE DOWN DOG)

Suzanne takes you down to her place near the river
You can hear the boats go by
You can spend the night beside her
And you know that she’s half crazy
But that’s why you want to be there
And she feeds you tea and oranges
That come all the way from China
And just when you mean to tell her
That you have no love to give her
Then she gets you on her wavelength
And she lets the river answer
That you’ve always been her lover
And you want to travel with her
And you want to travel blind
And you know that she will trust you
For you’ve touched her perfect body with your mind.
