Yosemite is one of those places that has been on my bucket list for years, and after seeing it, I’m glad it was.

It’s very much unlike anything I’ve ever seen. With the massive rocks, big waterfalls, and trees for days, you really can spend days getting lost among its trails.

Unfortunately, I only really had a day. Still, I managed to pack a lot into my short time there. I saw Half Dome, the falls, El Capitan, and the explored the Valley and its little shops.

The toughest thing about the trip was hiking to the upper falls. Its basically like climbing a flight of stairs for 2 and a half hours. Couple that with the fact that it was about 90 . Or the new cupcake shop that opened in Old Town. I’m flexible πŸ˜‰

Have I mentioned lately how much I love LA? There’s so many beautiful little gems, fun places to take pics, and little neighborhoods to get lost in.

And Then I Trekked West

Every now and then, I need a minute. Just to be away from my computer. To not have to write anything. To not have a jam-packed schedule of auditions, tapings, fittings, etc. Time to just regroup. Recharge. Reflect. Last month, I took a trip out west. And I got the opportunity to do a little hiking. Saw the Grand Canyon (amazing, btw. It’s like a giant oil painting-totally surreal). Take in some fresh air. Turn off the cell. Not check the email, and it was fantastic. Actual time alone with my thoughts. I made a lot of decisions. Next month I’ll begin a longer journey west. Truly embracing my passion and taking my acting career to LA more full time. There’s a lot of reasons I hadn’t made the choice until just recently, but the most important thing right now is that I’m ready. My mind hasn’t felt so clear and focused in a long time. And I learned a bit too. Not necessarily that I need to take a trek across the country every time I’m feeling wiped; but I do need to take some regular time out to just recoup. It’s more so than just balancing my schedule. I’ve actually gotten better about that. Its more about taking time to clear my thoughts. To wipe the slate and allow space for some fresh ideas. How else can I hope to grow?
