Mind = Officially Blown
Yep, exciting stuff below. But first, there are sooo many things happening all at once in prepping for FIRST HAND WOMAN’s debut at FringeNYC, that it’s extremely challenging to even find time to breathe. The other day, I forced myself to take a Time Out (hint hint) and walked away from the computer for a couple hours, because my eyes had actually started wigging out (make sure you read to the bottom, because I have a “Time Out” dare for you).
So I went for a stroll, visited a park and watched the sunset. Yep, it was as simple as that. I felt recharged and glad to give my eyes something other than my computer screen to look at.
And here is where I do a happy dance:
Speaking of “TIME OUT”, check this bad boy out:
That’s right… Yayyyy!!! FIRST HAND WOMAN had a lil spotlight, kind of like a shout-out, in the incredible TIME OUT Magazine!
Yep that’s us! Wowowow! Thank you soooo much Pennant Media Group, FringeNYC, Ron Lasko and Time Out!!! This is so lovely to see. 🙂

And now without further Ado, in honour of this wonderful magazine spotlight, I hereby dare you to give yourself a proper Time Out this week. At least three hours of unadulterated fun. No work or stress allowed.
Use this time to do something that you absolutely love and that is not work-related. Joy for the sake of joy.
And I’m not talking about distracting yourself. So watching TV, playing video games and surfing the net do not count. I double-dog-dare you to do something that really makes you laugh, smile, sigh and engage. Stuck for ideas, hey check out Time Out Magazine for inspiration.
Now in the comments below, I want you to tell me what your “Time Out” will be. Can’t wait to hear about the delightful things you’ll be rockin’!
Stay tuned as tickets go on sale July 19.
And as always…

FIRST HAND WOMAN Actor, Playwright + Producer
FIRST HAND WOMAN is one woman’s powerful story, told through five different parts of herself. These parts are the boisterous and unapologetic stages of loss. So the characters onstage are Denial, Bargaining, Anger, Depression and Acceptance. This is an exhilarating ride through the stages of loss and into redemption!

Thank you so much Desiree! Oh I would absolutely LOVE to bring it to California. 🙂
Congrats on the shout-out! I bet that got your heart going! Keep posting! 🙂

Thanks Jacob! Indeed it did get my heart going. 🙂 You keep posting too.
Congratulations on the shout out and I hope you make it to LA soon so I can see this amazing show!!! And I love your time-out suggestion – my goal for this week is to add 10-15minutes after each life coaching client session is over and just breathe and bask in the magnificence of those I work with. Sometimes I go from session to session, just getting a snack and checking email in between, but I really want to practice savoring each session because I love what I do so much and there are so many insights each time!
Amazing Lana. Fantastic goal! And thanks, yeah, it’s a complete thrill. 🙂 I would love to bring the show to LA. Haven’t been there in years.
Sweet beans… Congratulations. Sharing the love with and for you.
thanks so much Holly!!!!!!
Congratulations with your upcoming show!! How great is that that you not only recognized the need for a time out, but you actually acted upon it, which is fantastic!! Looking forward to seeing your show next time i’m in NY!! 🙂
Thanks Aimelie! Yes, it can be very hard to take time outs sometimes. FYI, our run in NYC at this stage is a very limited one. 5 performances only. So if you’re there from August 16 – 23, that’s your best shot. Who knows what the future will bring though. 🙂
Congrats on the spotlight, Sarah! This is great!! Time outs are so essential.
Thanks soooo much Shana!! xo
AMAZING!! Time Out is LEGENDARY!!
I’m taking my TO tomorrow evening on Toronto Island, to go to Amazing New Stuff, a readings night at the cafe on Wards Island.
If I’m honest, I’d been feeling a bit antsy because I have work to do, but I feel like you just gave me permission, thank you!
Thanks Marsha!! That readings night sounds Wonderful! Enjoy enjoy enjoy!
Girl, reading your story and learning about your journey is so damn inspiring! Congrats on your successes. I can’t wait to see you on TV someday so I can brag that I know you. 🙂
Congrats on Time Out and FringeNYC!! This is great and I especially LOVE the idea of taking a Time Out. I’m a NYC girl, but taking some Time Out in Maine right now for my yoga retreat. 😉
Thank you sooo much Elyse! Take that time for yourself. Hope to see at the run!!!
