With the end of the year approaching I’m suddenly inspired to reflect on 2015, take inventory of the positive, find solutions to the negative and ultimately decide what I want to bring with me into 2016. One of the things I want to bring with me is this very blog. Hey blog, missed ya! And in true Golden-fashion, I said to myself, “Self, why start tomorrow what you can do today?” You know, make a habit of it starting NOW. Amirite?
So, here goes. Whether you’ve followed my blog because you’re a fan of the content, or of me, or thought that this website was the Jewish version of Keeping Up with the Kardashians (my Sunday night family dinners should be filmed)…
I think giving you a few updates on what I’ve been doing these past few years is the perfect place to start. Do-Re-Mi, my friends.
Where I’ve been…
Since my last post back in June, 2012, I’ve been BUSY. I’ve continued to host after shows at Afterbuzz TV for Impastor, The League, Truth Be Told, Dads, The Americans, and more. Then I got an exciting call, I was cast as the co-host for The Art of Life of The Lifestyle Network! WHATTT. My first broadcast TV gig. Major. I even got my very own blue check on Twitter. I was also cast as the new co-host on the Sam in the Morning show on LA Talk Radio. At the same time, my YouTube channel, Two Drunk Girls TV got some serious cred and bestie,
Lauren Leonelli, and I got signed by Fullscreen for management and soon after came Gersh as our agents! I know, we’re still pinching ourselves. I guess it’s true, if you build it they will come. And they did. That brings us to the latest and greatest. Lauren and I set out to do a radio show of our own on LA Talk Radio, so we created a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds and get the show off the ground. Not only did we meet our goal (thanks to many of you), but we threw ourselves a super fab launch party. The first show went live on October 7 and we’ve been booked with some seriously awesome guests since with no sign of slowing down! I’ve also picked up a love of yoga and practice regularly, because how else could I stay centered with all of this going on?! Sounds like a lot, doesn’t it?
What I want to bring with me…
Gratitude. And not just because it’s Turkey Day tomorrow but because duh. It’s something we all strive for, try to remember, post super deep memes and quotes about on Instagram, and then completely forget about because life happens and we say bye to gratitude like it’s Felicia. So here I am on November 25th resolving to maintain my gratitude each and every day. Why you may ask do I need to up my gratitude levels when I am clearly very thankful for the aforementioned resume? Because dear readers, even I forget all that’s happened until I put pen to paper and take stock for this here post. While in the thick of things I felt stressed, overwhelmed, busy, and under-accomplished (I will probably always feel this one due to my overachieving Capricorn nature, insert therapist’s name here ___), but you get my point. Why the F do we get on this damn hamster wheel? We do it to ourselves which is the worst part. I know I do. Welp, it comes to an end here and now, hopefully for good. At the very least, I’m going to pour a healthy amount of champagne into my hamster wheel water bottle and celebrate my accomplishments along the way. Who’s with me?
While we’re all feeling festive and suddenly gracious, I would greatly appreciate you lovely people tuning in to my new radio show called It’s Complicated on LA Talk Radio, Wednesday’s at 12PM, and let me know what you think! Part of taking stock is also humility, so I’m going to exercise mine now. Any and all feedback is welcome.
And finally, thanks for supporting my comeback as a blogger folks. I appreciate your support over the years, and now, more than ever.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
