Be the Leading Lady (or Man) in YOUR life

I have had a revelation.  I have not been acting like LEADING LADY in my own life.  It's as if I've been waiting for something to propel me into action.  Making change without a push is tough.  But it is true that you create your success, things just don't happen.  And for the people out there that get a lucky break, good for them...but there's no use in pouting about it, no use in wishing for a freebie.

I always have been half hard worker, half slacker...I think I get in my own way.  But knowing that about myself I need to assess what I am capable off and expand and grow upon that.  I need to not concentrate and dwell on my inadequacies but rather, develop my talents and revel in my little successes everyday.

Little (big) Success today: I went to the gym before work, I ate proper meals and I didn't bite anyone's head off!!  Woohoo what a success and even for a Monday! This was me, making solid choices that make me feel productive, healthy and happy.  I not basing anything on other people or being lazy.  I tackled this Monday.


For so long I waited and waited to feeeeeeel like I could make choices, I never felt like I was ready or strong enough to make them.  But the new Alex is capable of seeing what I want more clearly and going for it.

Readers....What have you done to change the path in your life?  Was a new exercise routine? Finally going to grad school...finally going on that date?  TELL ME HOW YOU CHANGED YOUR LIFE!!!

To be or not to be...different

Uh oh. Here comes another anecdotal and self-aware journal entry blog post. Yup. You guessed it. So, shall we?

A lot has changed. New year, new President, new ban, new ideas...yet I am still me. New endeavors are in the midst.

I have since decreased most of my medications. And now I'm more me than I have been in 3 years. It's good and bad. I stopped therapy due to not having insurance but plan to go back once I find a new doc on my plan. Starting over....ugh. Not going to be fun.

But here I want to write down my struggle. I struggle to be who I think I need to be and who I am naturally. It's not about being cool or fitting in at this point. I already know I have a lot of "personality." About enough for two or three people. That's either your thing or it's not. Some call it quirky, unique, crazy, lots of different things. I've always had to edit myself in crowds and at work, in school...everywhere. That is why being on the stage was so easy for…

Candwich is back...back again!

The Candwich - Sandwich in a Can
The Candwich - Novelty? Gag Gift? Joke? Lunch? I'd say all of the above. This "sandwich in a can" is definitely silly and weird and I can't tell if it's the best thing in the world or the worst thing in world. Irregardless, I have had the opportunity of working with the Founder, Mark Kirkland, or as some call him the "Earl of Candwich." He is a genuine person and truly wants to give back and help "can" hunger. Mark is no stranger to controversy and has had his fair share of hiccups along the way in building his Candwich-opoly.

A Viral Sensation
Candwich went viral in 2010 when the New York Times broke the story about a rogue investor who ran a Ponzi Scheme and stole upwards of $145 million from creditors who wanted to invest in Mark One Foods Corp, Candwich's parent company. It took a long time to settle with creditors but Mark has successfully regained control of Candwich and wants to bring his sandwich in …

So this is thirty...

So this is thirty. I haven't been writing much because what you probably don't know is that my new job is to write. It's silly and something I fell into and I'd like for this blog and my many, many years of needing to express myself and tell stories to go into me finding this path. Once a storyteller, always a storyteller. I like to believe that this is true. Since I was young, I have had so much to say. More than most can keep up with. With that, I either entertained and wowed you or sent you running for the hills. Either way, I've learned from the cues and have worked to know where I fit in and when not to speak but when to write down. It started with journals, then poems, then songs, then this blog, more songs, and then I stopped. I transitioned from vomiting feelings on the page to thinking more strategically for an audience and thinking about my brand what I wanted to say to people who follow me. I don't know who realllly follows me, but if I w…
