Eat More Fat? Ok!

Eat More Fat? Ok!
Ever since the “low fat” craze of the 1990’s, fat has been labeled as “the enemy!” I fell victim to it as well.  Low fat frozen yogurt? Yeah! Low fat cookies? Sign me up! Low fat cheese? Boy howdy! I was out buying the latest “diet” craze item that was available. You know what? It... Read more »

What is autoimmune disease? You are likely hearing this term more and more every day, and you are likely meeting more and more people who claim to have one. What does it mean, though? “A disease in which the body’s immune system attacks healthy cells.” That is the generic definition. Basically, it means that in... Read more »

My 2016 Soundtrack For Life

My 2016 Soundtrack For Life
As I’ve mentioned before on this blog, music is a big part of my life.  Each year music marks various emotional states that I was in… from happy, to sad, to thoughtful, to silly, and everything in between and beyond.  It also links me to particular places and times in the past year, it makes...

Just Keep Fighting... My Hashimoto's Journey

Just Keep Fighting... My Hashimoto's Journey
Never Give Up.  It’s been the motto I’ve tried to live by for my whole life. Never giving up doesn’t mean never stumbling. It doesn’t mean never moving backwards. It doesn’t mean that you live a struggle free life. In fact, it means that you’ve likely stumbled, back stepped, and struggled a LOT… but the... Read more »

Back in college, part of my curriculum was to take a movement class.  This may sound odd, but it’s not all that uncommon when you go to school for acting, because part of acting is to become very aware of your body, its movements, its patterns, and to learn to let go of your pre-existing...

How Bad Is Lying, Really?

How Bad Is Lying, Really?
From little white lies to big honkin’ lies, everybody does it.  It’s an age old art.  Some people are so good at lying that they can’t even tell what the truth is anymore. A lot of times we lie assuming that we are protecting the other person, but in reality, we are usually protecting ourselves.... Read more »

Time After Time

Time After Time
If you ever enter a store or coffee shop and see some strange girl feverishly trying to get her cell phone as close to the speakers as possible (not at all unlike John Cusack holding a boom box over his head), it’s probably me, and I’m probably trying to get Shazam to hear whatever song...
