A Hint At What’s To Come

It has been nearly 18 months since I made a drastic career change, leaving the television business after 16 years to go off on my own.  It’s been a crazy, scary, and exciting year and a half, but one that lacked a real focus when I first began.

A few months ago, I started to take stock in what it was I was doing with my platform, and the different ways I was choosing to show up […]

After One Year Of Marriage, A Letter To My Younger Self

Dear 2014 Laura,

You don’t know me yet but I’m exactly where you wish you were right now. And I know not being here yet is freaking you out.

You have quite a year ahead of you. In six months, you turn 35 and that is going to mess with your mind more than any birthday has before. You will question everything about yourself and your character. And why? Because you will continue to be single. And […]

My Therapy Story

Last year on World Mental Health Day I posted on Instagram an honest look into my experience with therapy and depression.  The responses were mostly positive with some even sharing their own personal stories as well.  But there were also a handful of well-meaning responses that were not so helpful.

I don’t think you need a therapist… I could pray for you. As far as I’m concerned you’re okay.  I’m just trying to boost your confidence.

Please don’t […]

Own Your Timeline

We live in a world with great expectations, and I’m not just talking about the classic novel.  From a young age on we are constantly exposed to societal “norms” that make us think our lives should play out in a certain way.

The story history teaches us is that there is only one “normal” timeline.  And we all should follow it for a happy life.

A little girl is supposed to grow up and fall in love (as […]

Ten of My Favorite Books of All Time

There is a reason this post is titled “Ten Of My Favorite Books” and not just “My Ten Favorite Books”.  I am one of those people who think of books kind of like children.  It is nearly impossible for me to pick my favorite.  I always reserve the right to add more and change my mind.

Growing up I was obsessed with reading.  My parents used to read to my brother and me constantly, which is where my […]

What We Can Learn From The 10-Year Challenge

2009 Laura in San Francisco.  I just got rid of this dress a little over a year ago! Happy to have ditched the bleach blonde TV anchor bob much earlier than that.

2019 Laura, though technically the last day of 2018. My hair is darker and have more lines and wrinkles, especially on my forehead. But I’m happier than ten years ago.

From a […]
