“I PHOTOSHOPPED MY FACE ONTO NATALIE PORTMAN...”
.
“I was so excited, I didn't consider that my head might not be the same shape as hers. What if I was secretly had a cone head and had just never realized it? I had just assumed that we were all born with perfect Portman heads...could I be wrong?
I called my parents. “Did you drop me? Was there sibling abuse?!?” (I'm talking about you ariel swan!). They assured me i would be fine.
.
It wasn't until that night when was going to bed that it sunk in what i was about to do and i cried. But it wasn't for the reason you think. It was because finally, I could be me.”
.
LINK TO TALK: Please find the link to my full TEDx talk in bio. Thank you to everyone who’s sharing, posting, and commenting. This was an absolute honor and i appreciate your support more than you know.

Alone...
.
I slept with the rain cover off so I could see the stars. And so they could see me.
.

I woke in the night to strange noises or the cackle of coyotes nearby making their kill.
.

I felt the dullness of my teeth and the softness of my nails and laughed at my false sense of security. My human-ness.
.

I felt the prickle of fear rise in my body many times but it was welcome.
.

I was alone. And I loved it.

Fun fact, right before this picture I asked him to take one of his infamous ‘Kenny’ shots. He laughed and asked me what that was. Later he sent me this pic. This Kenny. This is what I’m talking about.

It’s a new day... something this way comes.

Week. Ends.

How is it that we can view a success as a failure? Or more so, how can we suddenly feel embarrassed for what was once seen as an accomplishment?
.
When you’re sold the idea of how something will turn out, or buy into the projection of the outcome “it’s going to be the best thing that ever happened to you!!” if it doesn’t turn out to be that, it can feel embarrassing because you bought it. You believed it. And most likely sold it.
.
Just over a week ago I was given the news that our show was canceled. It wasn’t a shock, we knew it was coming for quite some time but once it became final, i paused. What was uncomfortable feeling that i have in the pit of my stomach? I had put this project to rest months ago, but why now this feeling.
Is it truly just the loss of the project, or the view over myself in this ‘failure’ that is creating this experience in me? How has the ‘frame’ in which I held the experience changed now that it’s over?
.
I remember a year ago when I booked Inhumans. It was something that I had been manifesting for a long time. I remember talking to a girlfriend about things I wanted to bring into my life. One of the things was becoming a Marvel Superhero, another was shooting in Hawaii, and another was being able to shave my head. This job achieved all three, and booking it was one of the most exciting and proud moments I’ve had. But why, now that it’s been canceled do I question those feelings to begin with. Why does failure negates success? I was promised the opportunity not promised the result. And if the result is the only way I determine success then failure is inevitable.
.
I’m realizing both are incredible lessons, both are a part of the learning curve in life :)
.
Didn’t somebody have to lose for me to win? Just like when I failed didn’t someone else succeed?
.
There’s never one without the other, they are just different sides of the same coin. There’s celebration in both.
.
Be kind in the wins and in the losses. Both to yourself and another.
.
I’m sad that we won’t be continuing but incredibly grateful for the journey and all I met on the way. .
Learn. Love. Laugh. And begin again.

One of those days...
