Choosing love over fear.

In October, I ran for my life, as a terrorist in a truck plowed down people on a bike path near my home in Tribeca.  I ran with a mass of people clutching my sweet pup Waffle under my arm. People ran into their homes nearby, but I unfortunately had nowhere to run. My home was 10…

Are you lifting people up or pushing them down?

In January, I convinced myself to take a singing class. Something I thought I’d never do… again. If you knew me back in high school this would seem weird because, I used to sing all the time. I was in the choir, every musical, I took voice classes, I was even in a girl band.…

How to have the perfect wedding day.

It’s been one year since I married this guy, and it truly was magical.  I woke up the next day with sore face muscles from smiling so damn much.  I want this for you.  As a life coach and overall spiritual human being.  These 8 things will guarantee that your wedding will be EVERYTHING you want…

How to not suck socially… (Japan)

Japan stole my heart for many reasons. (1): There’s a principle the Japanese people live by, which roughly translates to: “Read the air.” What does this mean? Well, when you enter a social situation it’s your job to literally “read the air,” meaning if the room feels mellow, you don’t walk in loud and aggressive.…

Learning to not judge. Bangkok.

Bangkok was the three day stop-over before the beach part of our honeymoon. The place to get over jet lag. I wasn’t that excited about Bangkok, because I’ve never heard any great reviews. You hear of sex trade, ‘ping pong shows,’ and drunk bachelor parties.   Even when I posted on Facebook asking for tips, most people…

Your job is what you do, not who you are.

A year ago I subscribed to two magazines; Conde Nast and Travel & Leisure. I’m not really sure why to be honest. Maybe it was a secret voice pulling me to the unknown. It is funny what you put in the universe and how it circles back. So here we are on the eve before…

The Uber ride that kick started my 2017..

On New Years Eve, we took an Uber to Brooklyn for dinner with friends. My husband asked our driver, Mamadou, from Guinea “How was your 2016?” He laughed. “Best year yet! I married the love of my life.”  I instantly smiled from ear to ear and said, “Us too.”   He got super excited and…

The Good Guys vs The Creepers

It’s been an interesting week to be a woman, to realize how connected we are in sexual assault.  Even writing that statement is infuriating.  As I reflected on my own life, and all the times I was degraded, touched, violated because I’m a woman. To be a woman is to deal with these things with…

#Blessed? Really?

I felt emotional after spending ten days with family and friends wrapping their arms around me, in celebration of my up-coming nuptials. The amount of love and kindness I received was overwhelming. I couldn’t help, but feel “Do I deserve all this?” I truly wanted to post #blessed everywhere, don’t worry I avoided the urge,…

Life-What is the point??

After a whole month home with my Mom after her mastectomy, I had a lot of time to think. Think about what the point of all this is. What I’ve learned through cancer is that there actually is no point. No ‘End Point’ I mean. Let me explain… that idea that we all have…that.. “Once…
