My last morning in Israel I took this picture
out the hotel lobby window and thought -
wow, what beauty
Despite my lack of desire...
"They didn't want to talk
about what they needed to do
our tour guide said
His words reverberated in me
There was a prison guard
I wanted to write you a love song
but it came out all wrong
I wanted to tell them about all you've overcome
but I became speechless
as I began to trace the memories
"You're covered in tattoos"
We all burst into laughter
"I am not laughing," he said
He pulls up his sleeve and points to his arm,
"Because this tattoo..."
Isreal. So many incredibly touching moments I look forward to sharing with you. The vastness and beauty of the world we live in often takes my breath away. I disconnected from posting on social media...
And I don't have words
for what I had to face
I wonder how different the world would be
if we all had loving nurturing adults around us
in our developmental years
If we all had someone...
Here is what my father taught me:
- Take pride in what you do
- Be happy for the talent and success of others
- You have the power to heal yourself
- Stand up for what you believe in...
Last night -- my front yard. It's gonna be a while since I see it again -- I am heading to Israel. This feels special. In my early twenties, many of my peers went to Israel and spoke so highly of their experience.
I've burnt a lot of bridges
And I have built a lot of castles
I used to be perfectly terrified
of what you would think of me
I used to let your preferences
shape the decisions that ...
There is so much we don’t want to talk about
here or anywhere
Someone taught us to stay quiet
To fear our voice
and our power
I can be a bitch
I don't think I am a bitch
But for sure, I know the bitch in me
When I was 25, I heard Debbie Ford speak
She told a story of how she was...
I remember him sometimes
as I drift off and find my breath
He was my black out boy
I drifted into his life
as he blasted into mine
A ghost already
Sometimes at night
I feel it aching
It is a deep ache
Alleviated only temporarily
by intense pressure
Sometimes I wonder if I'm cut out for this
Honestly I wonder it nightly
Some days go by gracefully
full of giggles, bright lights and dancing...
“You are not an artist
You are a curator”
she said, with a visible sneer
I paused and caught myself
I was about to defend
I was about to engage...
Here is the funny thing about flying high
You have further to fall
And the fall that might have felt
like going over a bump on a dirt road
Instead feels like someone...
Today is my birthday ✨
If I had to sum up what this year was about for me
it would be - growing up.
I did a lot of growing up this year.
It has been perfectly terrifying to share myself publicly
The core fear being that it if I put myself out there,
I will be seen as a joke
Much of my life I have felt like a fraud
There is a woman who shares her heart online
I often find her words triggering
I watch my feelings towards her change ceaselessly
But always I cheer her on
Following up on my post from yesterday about work. I received a lot of questions. First, I am not leaving the Institute for the Psychology of Eating. I believe deeply in our mission and it is so incredibly...
Work has been intense lately
I have had to really look at how I have been doing things
And what I need to do differently
Because what I am learning
is you need to actually learn how to...
I put myself outside of my comfort zone frequently. This past week was a lot for me. I was in Las Vegas, and then Beverly Hills. I find myself easily overwhelmed in social situations, especially when I don't know...
Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy...
I am heading to bed soon
There are unanswered emails
And an overflowing list of “to-dos”
This week did not go as planned
Not even close
Senior year of college
So certain and so scared
From 4 -20 years old I was clear I wanted to be a fine artist
Please do not mistake my vulnerability for weakness.
Recently, I was talking to one of my best friends who like me, chooses to share a lot of her inner world publicly. She felt misunderstood when...
Can you feel it, I whispered
Yes, he said
Don’t go please, I said, not yet
Okay, he said
And we sat there knowing it would never be the same...
I didn’t grow up thinking I was less than because I was a woman
I didn’t grow up thinking that being a woman had anything to do with what I could or could not do in life
I had no idea my gender could...
I remember as a little girl hearing adults talk about how fast time flies
I remember not knowing what they meant because for me,
time often felt to move so painfully slowly
