Don’t Wait to Celebrate!

Happy Tuesday!

Today is a day for celebration! Why? Because I said so. Oooooh.

That sounded so authoritative, but the truth is, as much as I love a good celebration, I have a very difficult time allowing myself to do it. 

I recently gave my first live lecture, one of my goals this year and for some reason, I was like… well… umm, it’s not THAT big of a deal.


Yes it is. It’s a big deal and something to celebrate. And so is the time I spent loving up my niece and nephew this summer. And the fact that I did a 3 day juice cleanse (something I thought I would NEVER do!). And the fact that even though I just did it a few months ago, I RE-LAUNCHED my website AGAIN!! 

These are all big deals. And for some crazy reason, I don’t let myself celebrate them. 

It’s a real bummer and something I am committed to changing.

    Hey Erin!

    Glad you survived Irene πŸ˜€

    #1 Spent the ENTIRE summer visiting with nieces & nephews & switching kids back & forth for a couple months. It’ll be a summer to remember.

    #2 Made that trip to the mountains with my hubby & girls. It was wonderfully amazing for us to get away like that. We don’t do it often enough. But we made it happen!

    #3 Photo shoot!!! Pictures will be released soon… stay tuned.

    #4 Took the lawnmower to get repaired! Woohoo, I love mowing the grass and missed it soooo bad. (Well my husband took it, I just finally put my foot down & said “Today! please :-)”

    #5 Sleeping in… Oh My Goodness… I love getting plenty of rest. I made sure it happened EVERY SINGLE DAY this summer. Now I’m going strong with my Fall Clients!!!!

    • Erin says:


      Yes, we survived Irene:)

      YAYAYAY!! Sounds like you had an incredible summer filled with love and fun:) I love that you got your lawnmower fixed and that you love mowing! Makes sense to have a working mower:)

      Can’t wait to see your pics, too.

      Congrats on all this goodness and thanks for sharing. Love getting to know even more about you.

  4. Morning, sunshine : ) I LOVE your Vlog and had to post. I’ve had an incredible summer! Here’s what I celebrate:

    1. Manifesting my new, preciou,s dream come true studio apartment in Chelsea!! Moving in 9/15. Lease signed!

    2. I finally got out of the dead end non relationship relationship I was in for 2 years (on and off)!!!!!! DONE.

    3. I traveled to Italy for the first time on vacation and out of that trip I also booked a travel article for Stay tuned, it’s going live on 9/15 (same day as my move in date, wowee!!)!!!

    4. I joined a theater company, booked two roles in two short plays, directed and read for a short reading, had my 1 act read at the same short reading, met with a producer who inspired me to adapt my 1-act into a short film, came up with a killer feature screenplay idea I can’t wait to start writing, became CLEAR AS A BELL that I am an actress/writer/director/producer and am in love with it all!

    5. Grew my Central Park intenSati class! We had an AMAZING summer together!!

    Thanks, Erin! Congrats to YOU and all the other celebrants posting. See you in in the ‘hood and in class! XO

      You knocked it out of the park this summer! So inspired by all these major changes and that trip to Italy!

      I am psyched to have you in the hood and can’t wait to see how this new screenplay comes together!

      Thank you so much for posting this! It gives me a thrill!


  5. Lady, lady – I love your new website and all these great classes. Your V-log is such an amazing combination of who you are. Muahh (big kiss)!

    I had a great summer under some serious challenges and it feels great to celebrate:

    1. Got laid off from a job in a serious negative environment that I was planning to leave anyway. As a result I learned how to be more financially responsible, taught at a new gym and got a free membership, made new friends, and had more time to search for the perrrrfect new job like a warrior banshee.

    2. I have an unlimited mental health rider with no co-pay form the above job (thank you United Healthcare), which translates in to FREE THERAPY – holy cow! I was able to work extensively with an extraordinary and life-changing therapist/coach.

    3. I began my yoga certification (a dream of mine)one-on-one with a master yogi by barter (tis true).

    4. I found my Dharma and decided to go back to grad school for my PhD in Theatre and Creativity – having the time of my life emailing professors I want to study with around the country and studying my buns off for the GRE.

    5. Culitvated an amazing and deeper relationship with my boyfriend.

    Thank you Erin for your continued inspiration!
    Much love,
