At your own risk

From now on whenever we get into someone’s car I will have to make them sign a waver.
If you accept us into your car … You are risking this.

JulieTalk VLog#3

Another day another vlog. Honestly when I started to post youtube videos I thought to myself I’ll just make videos when I get interesting thoughts. (interesting in my own standards) I thought some funny stuff is bound to come out. But it’s actually not funny at all… I’m sharing my daily lessons, I don’t know exactly where I’m going with this, but I encourage you to try something new without having it all necessary figured out.

Today’s vlog talks about dealing with people we don’t like. We can claim to be saints, but we’re all guilty of knowing someone we don’t necessarily like.So here’s a little thought to clear our channels and be happier in our day to day lives.

Live everyday fully. Learn a lesson daily.

Julietalk vlog#2

Sure I’m here talking about finding happiness and making sense of things. But the truth is, I’m just as lost as anyone out there seeking for answers. I get anxiety, negative thoughts and stress and I try to deal with it in the best way that I can. After a summer home with my tots, I’m headed back to work next week. The thought of it kept creeping up in my head and I couldn’t help but feel anxiety towards it. Then something happened, some of my girl friends put together a girls night out for an upcoming evening. It turns out to be the evening of my first day back, and suddenly something shifted inside me and I learned how To deal with some anxiety in a new way. Here’s me trying to share it.

A blog, a show, so why not a vlog.

I’m sitting at home now, just got home from the studio. We shot episode 14 of JulieTalk Live. What I learned on this episode was to trust myself. Yes I learn lessons on my own show. I’m perhaps the one who learns the most.

We talked about trusting ourselves and stepping away from limiting self doubts. Sure I have self doubt about the show, but I try to overcome it. I try to not let doubt, fear or anything negative limit me. If there’s something that you want to try to do, I say do it! Go for it. Don’t expect to be discovered if you still haven’t discovered yourself.

Whatever you’re doing, or want to be doing doesn’t need to be perfect. It just needs to be done, and put out there. Plant a seed and watch. Perhaps it will grow, and perhaps it won’t, but you’ll never know unless you try.

Sometimes I get an overwhelming feeling, and I have a sudden urge to write a post. Sometimes I just want to share a moment with the world. And sometimes I feel that interrupting that moment to write a post defeats the purpose. So today, as I had one of those moments, I made a vlog out of it.

What Robin Williams’ death has to do with you.

Your friend posted something about Robin Williams and you read RIP in the comments and your heart skips a beat. You start looking at your social media network home page to see if anyone else is talking about this. Can it really be true? You find statuses pouring about the topic. Perhaps it’s another fake internet death so you search for more information until we have to face the truth that our favourite actor is gone. It hits home because we feel like we know him. We all grew up with Mrs. Doubtfire, and after all watching that movie at least a dozen times he ‘s become part our childhoods and lives forever. It’s not fair to describe his acting achievements with only one movie In which he cross dresses , but growing up whenever I saw Robin Williams in a movie I always thought of Mrs.Doubtfire. I’ll never forget my dad yelling to us from upstairs as we we’re playing in the basement “turn on channel 22! Madame Budwizer is on!” And we would laugh thinking we we’re so much smarter because we knew it was Doubtfire and not Budwizer .
Once you get past the initial shock of this man’s death , what I would really like us to focus on is the cause.
Experts are claiming that it was probably a suicide because he was severely depressed.
Let that sink for a moment . Severely depressed, endless awards, loved by fans, millionaire, successful …
Severely depressed.
I’m not going to try to describe depression , it’s causes and treatments in this single post , but I do want to raise some awareness about the issue. I also want to take the time to remind everyone that he had anything anyone could wish for, but he was unhappy. Take your grief for this man that we all loved and turn it into appreciation for all the good things in your life. Ambition is a great thing to have and it is good to want more , as long as we appreciate and are grateful for the present and everything that we have and are today. Seek happiness and love as much as you seek financial success. Invest your energies and appreciation into the present and live fully now not awaiting the next achievement . Robin Williams taught us many life lessons from his movies and now, in death he teaches us the biggest one yet. Appreciate your life, be happy with what you’re given and make the most of what you have.
Depression is a disease and it is not because we are rich and famous that we are spared from it. Although it doesn’t mean that we are ungrateful if we are depressed , gratitude is a means to reach happiness and happiness definitely helps avoid depression .
I know that, from now on, whenever I see Robin Williams on screen I will be reminded of the blessings in my own life and focus on being even happier today and now .
What better lesson could he have given us?
Thank you Mr.Williams and may you rest in peace.
Share if you care.

Jack’s phone, off territory ?

Found my husbands cell phone in the bathroom. To check or not to check?
Haha, that’s not even a question.
I’m always in it. Of course I know the password. Honestly the smartphone gives me a complete report of his week , he doesn’t even need to remember to tell me… ” Jack, you’re going out to watch the game tomorrow?”
Jack: ” ya , sorry I forgot to tell you, how did You know ? ”
Julie: ” I saw Chris’s text”
And my husband can access my phone anytime. Not that we’re checking each other, but I think that the phone is too big of a thing to keep private from your spouse. So I came across his phone in the bathroom, I open it and find that he was in the middle of a crossword puzzle. So of course my first reflex is to try to complete it so that he can be impressed when he comes back to it.
Ok, 52 across, Russian river or mountain range.
???
Ok this is boring.
So of course the next best thing to do is to completely sabotage the whole thing and fill the boxes with random words.
Ya, that’s fun.
Here goes.
Filling up the boxes with random words while laughing a loud and evil laugh. I’m enjoying this more than I thought I would.
Oh he’s going to flip out.
Can’t wait!
