“We Don’t See Things As They Are, We See Them As We Are” Rabbi Shemuel. I think that every thought, idea, or intention comes from our own lived experiences, and even though we might agree with someone, it doesn’t mean we can see things the same way they see them. So, even the idea of love for ourselves might not mean the same to someone else. Read more>>

One of my all time favorite quotes goes “Bloom wherever you are planted.” It meant so much too me that I had it tattooed as a constant reminder. I think for me, growing where I did and having the type of upbringing I had, it was always a struggle to choose the road less travelled. Growing up I did not have it all but compared to some of my peers and kids down the way, I had a lot. Read more>>

“Winning builds confidence. Losing builds character.” It’s a quote my father told me years ago when I was competing as a Division I college wrestler. And over time, that mantra continues to echoes 14 years later in both my personal and professional life. I’ve had the privilege to have had many successes at 37 years old: Earning an athletic scholarship for college; Performing on television as an actor television, film and theater; Writing copy and scripts that have graced the subways, streets and airways for major brands and entertainment projects; Read more>>

The King Solomon had a ring and on the other sideinside of the ring was engraved “And this too shall pass,” and he wore it constantly. Wearing the ring itself was a powerful emotional therapeutic for a cure against depression. These magic words teach us the power of impermanence. The basic idea of this phrase is to remind us that, any situation we are currently going through in life, is temporary and it will change. Especially, the horrible situations of COVID and War in which we are living, they will eventually end. Read more>>

My favorite affirmation is, “The chance to love and be loved exists now matter where you are” (Oprah, 2021). This reflects my model for my Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR). I know what it is like to feel lonely, to have insomnia, stress. Through my ASMR, I hope to bring love into people’s lives and to give a sense of peace. It makes me happy to know that I have created a community where no one feels alone. Read more>>

No tears in the writer, no tears in the reader. No surprise in the writer,
no surprise in the reader. – Robert Frost Posted at my desk. To me, it captures the essence of writing. A great story has to appeal to the reader on a visceral level. To do that effectively, the author has to experience the same emotions as the characters. Read more>>

My favorite quote by Agatha Christie is: “I changed from an amateur to a professional. I assumed the burden of a profession, which is to write even when you don’t want to, don’t much like what you are writing, and aren’t writing particularly well”. It reminds me to pursue my objectives even when things get tough or are not going the way I hoped they would. It reminds me that writing, like any other job, is hard, and requires a lot of dedication – that is, if you don’t want it to be just a hobby. Read more>>

I have 2 quotes by which I live my life. The first quote ” No Mud, No Lotus,” is based on the book No Mud, No Lotus: The Art of Transforming Suffering written by the late Vietnamese monk and peace activist Thich Nhat Hanh. When we are able to acknowledge, embrace, and fully sit with our pain & our traumas, and let the shadows of our subconscious energy arise, then we are able to transform the “mud” or suffering we have experienced without guilt, shame, and blame. This is exponentially challenging and requires a great deal of self-nurturing and self-compassion. Read more>>
