There I was, walking down sixth avenue, after being placed on hold with customer service about a dispute on my credit card when…I walked right by the infamous, David’s Bridal on 26th street.  I paused.  I was angry, annoyed and irritable – which turns out – are three S-U-P-E-R power emotions to get you to […]

My Final Fearless Act: I Said Yes to the Dress!

Uncategorized

I didn’t want to do this one again.  I just didn’t.  Nope.  No, thank you.  I did it once and it turned out great so I’m gonna lean towards the big “HELL NO” in my head and respectively decline.   But then…There’s this other voice in my head…a much softer, kinder, nudge of a voice, […]

Fearless Act #43: What Singing on the Subway for the Second Time, Taught Me.

Uncategorized

The first time I walked into Planned Parenthood, I wasn’t prepared. I had an idea, an impulse, an inspired thought…and I acted on it. That day. And that’s what this challenge was about for me. Instead of overthinking and waiting until later. Which many of you know could lead to…N-E-V-E-R.  But, when I walked in, […]

Fearless Act #41: Going Back to Planned Parenthood. I Don’t Give Up.

Uncategorized

Eight years ago I did a really brave thing.  After waiting and waiting to hear back from a big-time music manager about becoming his receptionist, I showed up to his office unannounced, and said: “I didn’t move to New York to become a receptionist.  I came here to be an artist and I want you […]

Fearless Act #40: The Grand Finale… A New Idea.

Uncategorized

Ok, I admit it…I was weirded out by the whole idea of “naked yoga.”  Just who goes to these classes anyway?  What are the benefits?  Is it all just a gimmick?  A peep show?  And… could I make it through one of these classes without giggling like a teenager?  I was about to find out. Before signing […]

Fearless Act #39: I Survived Naked Yoga.

Uncategorized

Last night, as I was walked from the East Village to the subway, I spotted a young girl sitting underneath the street light with ragged hair and a cardboard sign that said, “Sometimes You Just Need A Little Help.”  I glanced at her for a moment and then continued walking, as I normally do.  But something told me […]

Fearless Act #36: Buy a Beggar Dinner.

People have often asked me what I hope to achieve as my 40th act or wonder why I began this journey of fearlessness to begin with and I haven’t always been truthful…until now.   I want to fall in love.  There.  I said it.   Admittedly, I know by expressing this truth, I am opening […]

Fearless Act #35: The Three Acts I Never Told You About & Why.

Uncategorized

You’re probably thinking two things:  what exactly is a cuddle party and why would I want to go to one? Well…I decided to sign-up because I was curious (and if you’re wondering, I found the group on Meet-up) and because the thought of cuddling with strangers in a non-sexual way felt really scary and let’s […]

Fearless Act #34: The Cuddle Party.

Uncategorized

Last night a group of eleven friends and I went to the lower east side to voluntarily get trapped inside an old theater.  We had sixty minutes to figure out clues and solve puzzles in order to…(dun-dun-dunnnn) Escape-the-room! I wouldn’t consider myself particularly good at solving puzzles or mysteries, for that matter.  Most of the time, […]

Fearless Act #33: Escape the Room!

Uncategorized

There are two important life lessons that occur when a woman matures into her “forties.” First, you generally stop caring what others think about you and two, you realize the annoying inner voice that told you getting your nose pierced is a terrible idea…is actually wrong!  Perhaps I should speak for myself when I say […]
