Zardozi Magazine Feature

This post is a little overdue, but with the hum drum of the holidays, and with recently being in rehearsals for the music video shoot of “Empire Vampire” for The Goodnight Darlings it didn’t dawn on me until now that the interview I did with Zardozi Magazine months ago was published. So here it is, better late than never, the Fall/Winter 2014 issue, pages 96-97. Check them out and support them. Thank you Zardozi Magazine for the feature and beautiful write-up. I hope to keep spreading the word of health, positivity, and happiness in 2015!

The rules are simple:

Mention who your general audience is, something interesting about you, and if you could follow your bliss what would it be and why.

3) Send me a quote! Who doesn’t love a good quote. I like bottling words of wisdom and inspiration and making it sharable to everyone so send in a quote to feature as well.

This month’s Blogger Spotlight goes to Jennifer of Apartment Wife. Jennifer has a great positive attitude about life and her cheerful blog reflects that. She’s married to her best friend and documents everything and every inspiration a long the way. I asked Jennifer some questions about following her bliss and here’s what she had to say:

I live life heart-first. All that following my heart business (before my head) has gotten me into some pretty big messes, but it’s also inspired some of my happiest moments and greatest accomplishments. I have a background in art and social work, and I blog about happiness, creativity, and the things that matter most. Writing has always been my bliss, and I recently started writing first book- wish me luck J

Favorite quote:

I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see.— John Burroughs

Good luck Jennifer on your first book! I’ll be asking for a signed copy ;)

So want to be featured for May? Don’t hesitate to enter, I’ll be looking forward to reading your submissions.

She Believed She Could, So She Did

First pin on my Inspiration Board

I remember a time when I was younger, when I thought I had all the answers. I laid my life out almost to a tee and had confidence in the direction I wanted to head in. When I was 5 I wanted to be a singer. When I was 8 I wanted to be a teacher. When I was 10 I wanted to be a doctor and when I turned 12 I was cast in a school play as Juliet and from that moment on I was determined to be an actress. As I got older acting, singing, and dancing became more recreational and eventually no longer became a part of my life. I would drag my dad to Manhattan to take me to auditions or that in high school I sang in a choir at Disney  during Christmases.

 So after I let that part of my life go I turned my life to my books. I went to college and majored in Anthropology and became a pre-med student. Every semester I had room for one elective class, and somehow I’d always find myself gravitating towards Theatre. I eventually took enough Theatre classes as electives and had enough credits for a minor. Ha whoops! The more Anthropology and Theatre classes I took the more I loved them and the less I liked my pre-med classes. It was during my 3rd year in college that I opted to postpone taking my entrance exams. This was also the year my health began to worsen and I really needed some time to think and get better before I made such a big decision.

 I found myself asking the questions we all do at some point in our lives: “Is this what I really want to do?” “Where do I want to go in my life?” “What is the right path for me?” and then I realized I wasn’t going to find those answers if I kept asking them. Life keeps going whether you know the answers or not. It’s scary not knowing which direction the wind will blow you, but find comfort in the fact that you have to just go. Just keep going and believe you can. Even if life doesn’t turn out as your 5-year-old self planned, sometimes life is just meant to be a winding road, so enjoy the scenery, and when you’ve find the place to stop, you’ll know.

Snack Find: Coconut Bliss Dark Chocolate Ice Cream

Oh yes this is happening right now.

I could go into detail about this cold piece of heaven but then I’d get ice cream all over myself and my keyboard, so I’ll save myself the mess and link to the site, which I do here. TGIF!
