SOHP

It is said “good things are worth waiting for” It has taken me a while to get on track and to post some work… I’m hoping you’ll find it’s worth waiting for! As always, I’m fortunate to do the work I love. I get to see old friends, make new ones, and work with wonderful organizations.  I am able to inspire and be inspired, to share and connect, and to help people help themselves. I can’t think of a better… Read more »

Blinky

by: Sylvie & Binky Binky is 6 ish She was saved from a shelter and would probably not have been noticed by the rescuer if she had 4 legs. She was about one when Jon ( my husband ) and I adopted her. She was scooting on her chest at the time and Jon was determined to build wheels for her. So after a few trials and 4 sets of fancy rigs and the help of Cesar Millan (she was… Read more »

By: Allegra Cohen Happiness isn’t wanting for anything more or less. It’s in finding the stream of gratitude that runs through our veins in the present moment. It’s in the in-between of setting a goal and watching its successful completion. It’s in knowing that if the goal isn’t completed, it’s ok. It’s taking in the positive breath and breathing out what doesn’t feel right. It’s fully accepting where you are now—without judgement, just a peaceful understanding of life’s ebbs and flows. 2be or not 2be… I… Read more »

Disney

Unless you have an annual pass to Disneyland (which I do), most locals end up going when they have out of town visitors. I realized while I was people watching, that despite the fact everyone comes to Disneyland to enjoy different parts of the same experience, it seemed most people were either in their own world or complaining that they were not having as much fun as they should be! It made me wonder how many people truly chose to be there! My son made an… Read more »

“Have a good life” I heard her say.  I was standing in line at the optical department at Costco…uploading to my Instagram, and I looked up to see an older woman speaking to a teenager. “I can help number 10″ an employee said. I was holding the little pink tab numbered 11. Oh great, not too much longer I thought. “You know why I say have a good life?” she asked him. Now I was curious. I love to hear wise… Read more »

Steven and I were having lunch one day when he said “If a lesson is not painful in life, do you really learn and grow from it?” 23 years ago Jill (not the real person) who was 12 yrs older than me told me I wasn’t ready for marriage as I hadn’t suffered enough, and my life was too easy. I may not have a good memory, but I remember that clearly because I remember through feelings. Surprise, confusion, sadness,… Read more »

Happiness

I landed at LAX not knowing what to expect for our first day of shooting the new 2BePositive campaign. Rushing into wardrobe, I was instantly put at ease by the positivity guru herself, Keren Lynn, as she pulled out my first of many looks we called, “The Happy Hippie”. In most circumstances and because of my performing background, I’m usually pretty outgoing, comfortable and social. However, as soon as we stepped onto Santa Monica Pier, I felt a little self-conscious… Read more »
