Hi there, I’m so grateful you are here!
I’m a mother, a wife, an actress, a certified yoga instructor and the writer behind “Inspirational Addict” who warmly welcomes you here! You may be asking yourself, why “Addict?” Because I am addicted to finding the joys in everyday life. Sometimes that means; catching a sunrise, writing a card to family, not booking a job I wanted, singing Itsy Bitsy Spider ten times to my baby girl, a rainy day, reading some inspiring literature, being on set, a delayed flight, a powerful meditation, a smile from a stranger— you get the point! I’m a life enthusiast, authentically moving with the currents looking for unbounded ways to explore happiness. After discovering and practicing yoga and meditation for the past several years, I’ve realized how empowering it is to create consistency with things that make your soul feel alive and stay connected to them.
A passion for writing combined with life's full spectrum of experiences in the various hats I wear propelled me into launching Inspirational Addict in December 2015. An uplifting & honest lifestyle blog I’m writing from my heart inviting YOU to indulge in a courageous dance with your amazing and true self. Let's face it we're not always dancing and that takes bravery, not to just admit but also to get curious.
I spend my days indulging in my new mama role, teaching yoga, being on TV and film sets and traveling the world with my talented, photographer husband, Erik Almås, whom often is the reason this blog will look so atheistically pleasing. Along the way, I encourage wellness with nutritional living, embrace trends, gain worldly adventures, discover a variety of things I want to pay forward and tell some hilarious, sometimes embarrassing stories. I hope to connect with you through these experiences. I want to inspire you, challenge you— to fall deeply in love with every morsel of what makes you... YOU!
Can we be each other's cheerleader? The confidence-boosting, little nudge on our shoulders saying, “We got this.” Life is full of highs and lows which in Eastern philosophy is referred to as the Yin/ Yang: Contrary forces that are actually complementary and how they give rise to each other as they interrelate to one another.
Sometimes a crawl through the ugly and messy can be the very thing that puts us feeling right back on top. We’ll spend a lot of time in the positive but as one of my favorite buddhist teachers, Pema Chodron, says “Start Where You Are.” Now, take a deep in-hale and ex-hale, grab my hand and let’s have some FUN!
