The Locker: Unlocked
So I think most of you know at this point that I live in New York City. One of the things I love most of the city is that its energy seems to put you right where you need to be. Synchronicity has blessed me often. So, "The Locker: Unlocked", is a true story about just that.
I had some time to myself in the middle of Manhattan. I have been battling a virus that has stiffened my chest and had been craving a steam bath, so I was on the lookout for a day pass to a gym. I found my sauna but didn't have a lock for my locker. The locker I put my belongings in was right outside the sauna room, and my intuition said it would be o.k. There were also plenty of women around. I blessed my locker with safety ;) and left it behind. I came out of the steam room to "check" on my belongings and there was a women sitting directly in front of my locker on the bench, leaning on my locker. I asked her to excuse me while I peeked inside. She politely moved, smiled, and then resumed her position with my locker door as her post (while texting on her cell phone). After a few more minutes in the sauna, I walked back to my locker and looked at this woman again leaning up against my locker. I KNEW HER! She knew me! We were completely taken back by the coincidence. Out of the whole locker room (which was huge) there she sat in front of MY locker! What are the odds? I believe people are put in our paths for a reason and reappear just when you need. :) My locker, unlocked, was protected. Trust your intuitions ladies. It may just keep you safe and reconnect you with old friends! NYC LOVE!
***Disclaimer: It is always best to lock your locker. Do not try this without your intuition!***
You are not defined by a job nor are you defined by perception. Follow all your interests and detours in your path; and trust me you will come up more complete than yesterday. I had a photo shoot today for my agency. I dabble in fit/print modeling and though it is hard work and a challenge (beyond what most think), I have become more balanced because of it. I don't put myself in a box. Don't let others or yourself either. Living life and saying YES! Mind, body, and spirit. Trust the process. Love and light....to your health!
As I listen to this song by The Fray, I'm reminded that we all this ability. Whether its a simple smile, a dollar, or just the act of listening; be THERE, be PRESENT! Everything takes a moment. Everything is a choice. Be a moment for someone.
A patient at work told me today, as I passed her leaving work, "Thank you for just showing you care, it really meant a lot". I had to think about what I did, but I do believe it came down to just being PRESENT at the moment she was describing. Simple acts...the best PRESENT one can give. We are all powerful beyond belief!
You might just save a life....Blessings for a beautiful evening, all of you!

Wherever you may be wishing you balance and love :) May the spirit of the holidays live in you!
Friendliness is a gift that keeps on giving.
I saw this photo today and many great memories came flooding back.
I was in my local nail salon, getting a manicure, and I happened to look up to see that I really liked the nail color of the woman's nails next to me. I asked for the color of her nails and we began a conversation about manicures. We had such a lovely time in the salon that we exchanged numbers. A couple days later, she text me asking If I was interested in coming to see her perform on Broadway. I was super excited not only to see her perform but because of the serendipity! I took my friend from work and we went to see a fabulous show on Broadway! This picture is of us backstage. Fate must exist because I ran into this same woman randomly on the subway not too long ago!
People cross our paths for a reason. Just don't forget to look up and see the colors around you! Life's a great adventure. You never know where you will end up next!
