Thanks for an amazing Operatic Metal-Grunge soundtrack for my angst filled years--and I still love Soundgarden. RIP Chris Cornell. Currently listening to #badmotorfinger

The talented Lea from @mtheoryyoga led the yoga segment of our retreat. The intention she set was "you are enough". This resonated with me. From being a creative professional, a mother, a wife, a friend. It's so important to reserve space to say "I'm enough" in the age of social media where it's so easy to fall into the comparison trap. Please keep in mind that our Instagram feeds are curated. It's our best step forward. We show our triumphs, not our numerous failures or fears. That's what yoga teaches me. Yoga was the best teacher for grief management and I'll forever thank my friend Lindsey for bringing me to a class one day when my anxiety about big life changes and grief was weighing me down. I took a class from Tara Blumenthal  at Butterfly Yoga that told me for the next hour, you are 100% in control of what happens within the 4 corners of your mat. Not much else in life offers you the serenity of the present than yoga. Whatever noise, upset, or indecision waited outside for me, I felt empowered to claim a mindful moment for myself to practice gratitude for my mind, body, and spirit. Gratitude opens the doors to more relationships, improves physical and psychological health, reduces aggression, and enhances empathy. I hope to enter this week with an open mind to accept life as it is, unpredictable. Photo credit by the amazing @mindfultherapy .

I have been working around the clock lately. It's not a bad thing when my work is my passion. Painting late at night is like hanging out with an old friend. Cannot wait to share what I'm working on! 🤗⚡️🎨⚡️

Thank you to everyone who ordered a Princess Leia print, just picked them up and they look AMAZING! 
50% of each sale is going to support Katie Kaplan to meet her fundraising goal for the @afspnational Out Of The Darkness Walk in San Diego.

The Out of the Darkness Overnight Experience is a 16-18 mile walk over the course of one night. Net proceeds benefit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, funding research, advocacy, survivor support, education, and awareness programs – both to prevent suicide and to assist those affected by suicide. 
I have 10 prints left and will make the donation this Wednesday. Thank you all for your love and support. Still not too late to order one ⚡️⚡️⚡️

Tomorrow, The HBO Documentary The Dead Mothers Club (@theclubdoc ) will be available on Amazon Prime, iTunes, vudu, and Google Play. As Mother's Day approaches, I am certain this documentary will touch the hearts of many that are missing their moms.

It was incredibly difficult to share the experience of losing my mother to suicide with the world. Two days after the NYC premiere I was asked to be interviewed by Katie Couric on live tv about it. I was pregnant with Oliver then-and in total shock. To help cope with the stress, I was doing the Oprah & Deepak guided meditation called "Desire and Destiny". Although that tense time in my life was less than desirable, I do believe it was my destiny.

After the loss of my Mom, I felt so isolated; there weren't a lot of online resources and the stigma attached to suicide made it feel like I would never stop hearing the broken record of grief and sadness. 
When the directors Katie Green & Caryle Rubin let me know the documentary was picked up by HBO (and my painting on the cover) I held onto that moment of feeling so isolated and knew that if I could share my story and help just one person to not feel so alone or feel shame, then I could put my fears aside and share my story.

I love how my choice of nail color changes as I age. I went with "Put It In Neutral" which is a step up from "Easy Going". It makes me want to create a custom line of blasé nail polish titles. 💅🏼

In honor of May the 4th & Carrie Fisher's legacy, I am selling this print of Princess Leia and donating 50% of each sale to the American Foundation of Suicide Prevention. Carrie Fisher was a bold advocate for mental illness and next month marks 15 years since my mother's suicide. It has been my mission to take trails blazed by Fisher and so many others to work towards removing the stigmas associated with mental illness and promoting mental health.  May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and there are so many great causes to support like @heads_together @afspnational makeitok.org ⚡️see link in profile to purchase ⚡️
