My Best Advice on Making Your Dreams Actionable

My Best Advice for Making Your Dreams Actionable

In my 37 years, I remember so many times I put my dreams into action.

I remember getting chorus solos and leads in musicals.

I remember getting into NYU’s musical theater program at their Tisch School of the Arts, early admission. I remember being told they accepted 1 in 60 applicants.

My Begrudging Life Lessons

My Begrudging Life Lessons

In November 2011, less than 2 months shy of my 34th birthday, I was diagnosed with boob cancer.

It sucked, obviously.

I was a year and a half into being a full-time coach, and it was thankfully going well. Luke had his eye on becoming a freelancer, and we were trying to have a baby. Y’know, normal things for a young family in their early-to-mid-30s.

Thankfully my Stage 2 diagnosis turned into a Stage 1,

The only thing that matters right now…

The only thing that matters right now...

The only thing that matters right now is that we’re finalizing our daughter’s adoption today.

I thought about the different posts I could write, but none of them were met with any kind of enthusiasm or focus. So, I’m pushing them out a week to tell you the things that’re in my head.

I have to tell you that you can find yourself saying aloud,

It’s your choice.

On Friday, December 26th, I decided to sign up for my first half-marathon.

I’m not sure what was in the air that made me do it.

I’ve only ever run a 5K, and did it barely and slowly. And that was 8 months ago! Since then I’ve walked tons (for the Avon 2 Day Walk I now do annually), but have only gone on runs super sporadically.

Dear Future Me (2015)

Dear Future Me (the 2015 edition)

New glasses (that I’m planning to wear in public often, which I’ve never really done before – and I’ve had glasses since 1987!) + new haircut + unstraightened hair (which I also haven’t done regularly since ’87 or so!) = the 2015 me!
