[video] chocolate + peanut butter + butter + emotions

After my last blog post, Another F*@&ing Growth Opportunity, a friend asked to see my ratios for chocolate, peanut butter, and butter. I made a video so you can see for yourself. 

You may be wondering, 'what the heck does this have to do with being a performer or a creative person?' 

Identifying two opposing sides, or parts, in my head led to listening to what each part wanted. Listening and seeing how each part actually wants to help is a major shift and can radically interrupt and stop the spinning arguments in one's head. It's quite amazing. 

So you might have arguments about if you're good enough for xy and z auditions, or what your colleague said to you, or what you should eat tonight. Teasing apart the voices that argue, understanding that they each have positive intentions, and then listening, leads to pretty interesting consequences. And more internal peace, compassion, clarity, and all sorts of other good things too. 

Check out this 4 minute video and see what you think. And I'd love to know if you try the chocolate concoction and how you like it!
