When I had the idea to start my blog, I wanted it to be a lifestyle/health/wellness/empowering/honest space where people could learn, be inspired, and laugh with/at me. I felt a lot of pressure to define which one thing I wanted to accomplish. Then I took a deep breath and realized that’s ok, because that’s sort of my thing. I’m all over the place. (I mean look at all those slashes in the first sentence.)
I’m sort of a walking contradiction. I’m a sarcastic and cynical New Yorker who moved to Los Angeles and became a vegan yogi. I meditate and drink green juice daily, and I say things like “she has really great energy”.
I was raised to believe I could do anything (which, by the way, I’m eternally grateful for Mom and Dad). It’s really such a beautiful approach to life, unless of course you want to be someone who can make a decision, like, ever, because I guarantee you won’t be able to. I sure as hell can’t. And I’m not talking big things either. I struggle daily deciding which sports bra to wear to yoga. Yes, I’m serious. I’m an actress and a writer. I’m studying to be a Certified Personal Trainer. I’m a filmmaker, a production assistant, a sometimes waitress, babysitter and a dog walker. Some days I walk down the streets of NYC during rush hour alongside all the corporate types, and I find myself thinking, “I mean, I could work in finance”. This is an actual thought that comes into my not-one-single-ounce-of-a-financial-background-mind. I don’t believe in limits.
So this is what I’m going to promise to achieve through my blog. I’m going to inspire you to stop believing in limitations. I’m going to make you laugh, motivate you to be a healthier person and hopefully empower you to take the first steps towards a new, perhaps intimidating venture in your life. I’m also going to help you to stop taking life so damn seriously, so maybe, just maybe, you’ll start enjoying the life you’re living NOW, and stop focusing all of your energy on the future.
