I’m back on the East Coast and it feels awesome to be here for spring!
There’s such a sense of renewal, hope and possibility during this time of year.
New buds, gorgeous flowers, and change is definitely in the air.
For many of us, spring breathes new life into our ever-growing list of hopes and dreams — things we want to experience, achieve and accomplish.
But what happens if that’s NOT true for you?
What happens when you’ve actually achieved all your goals, and you’re left feeling deflated and wondering…
Is this all there is?!?
I’m still riding a sweet TV high from Sunday night.
The Walking Dead and Game Of Thrones both had big nights (one season finale and one season premiere, respectively) and I was really happy to indulge in a little popcorn break.
That’s because since the car accident a few weeks ago, things have felt a bit more intense than usual.
Which brings me to today’s very special MarieTV episode.
You see, I’ve known about this topic for years — and even heard great things about it from many people I trust. But honestly, I was still skeptical.
That’s until our car wreck gave me a big reason to dig in and really test it for myself.
You see, the stress, psychological trauma and after-effects of that crash simply could not be cleared by traditional means.
I know that millions of people around the world swear by EFT’s effectiveness — and if you don’t already know what it is or how it works, you’re in for a treat.
Whether you have trauma from a past event, or simply a lot stress affecting your energy, results and joy — this episode is a must watch.
I just wrapped up a three day visit with my parents here in Los Angeles — we had sooo many laughs and good times.
One of the things I appreciate most about my mom, in particular, is how painfully direct she is.
“I don’t want to go on rides.” “I want that clam chowder — now.” “This show is boring. Let’s go.”
There’s no upset or drama. Just the simple truth of how she feels about any particular subject, in real time.
She’s a living demonstration of the phrase “give it to me straight.” While you may not always like what she has to say, you always know exactly where she stands.
Saying what you mean, directly and plainly, isn’t a skill that comes naturally for many of us.
Especially when it comes to having delicate conversations that involve both business and friendship.
Before we get going into today’s episode, I want to thank you so very much for all of the love and prayers you sent our way after last week’s accident.
I’m happy to report we’re all doing so much better, and we’re taking very active (and gentle ) steps to heal.
There’s no doubt in my mind that YOUR positive energy and intentions have, and continue to, help my family tremendously.
Speaking of family, you’ll get to see and hear directly from my man Josh — today.
Josh is an incredible actor, director and teacher. While you can look him up on IMDB to see everything he’s been in, you’ll be able to catch him this summer in the brand new Showtime series, Ray Donovan alongside Liev Schreiber and Jon Voight.
So how does this relate to you?
Well, if you ever struggle with a fear of public speaking, or putting yourself on video, or getting on a big stage, or “putting yourself out there” . . .
This MarieTV episode is a MUST WATCH.
I had no idea I was going to write about this today, but when I thought about whether or not I should mention it . . .
I don’t feel like I have a choice as I’m still pretty shaky.
Sunday afternoon we were hit pretty bad in a car accident.
Josh, myself and Kuma were driving down a quiet side street here in Venice when a driver sped through a back alleyway — without stopping — and slammed into the side of our car.
The impact was horrific. Glass shattered everywhere, and in an instant our car was forced underneath another parked car on the side of the road.
Thank God, we’re all fine (save nasty bruises, soreness, totaled cars, Kuma peed on my pants – LOL etc.).
The most upsetting thing though is how my mind keeps flashing these “alternate reality” scenarios in my head. These horrible, mini movies where if it were just a few seconds off . . .
Either Josh, Kuma or myself may not have survived. That’s really is the worst part for me — everytime I shut my eyes or try to rest, they come up.
So before we get into today’s episode, I invite you to take a moment to connect with and express your genuine love for the dearest people in your life.
