Inspiration: My Husband

I woke up this morning, feeling terribly sheepish of the way I behaved during our “fight” yesterday. It took me a long time to finally even accept that “fights” were normal in a relationship and a necessary evil to wake up, to push the reset button, to grow, evolve, learn, love, breakthrough and keep moving.

Fun: Crayola

My Inspire Series called for these goodies that arrived in the mail today. Who knew Crayola could be so much fun?!

Daily inspiration will be written/drawn/doodled throughout the house on windows/glass/mirrors in an effort to keep inspiration eye level and accessible.

Little daily reminders, big changes.

Change the state of your mind, change your Life.

Inspiration: Found in a book

Waking up, I take a moment to grab one of the current books I am reading from my nightstand and pour over a few pages. I do this so my day begins on a positive note with positive, inspiring words of wisdom. It sets the tone of my day and helps me get focused in […]

Me: The Torch Bearer

First and foremost, Happy Chinese New Year! This year celebrates the year of the Snake. You can read more about it here.

It is the second day of the lunar new year and a full 16 years + a day of my favorite person’s passing. My grandfather was, in a way, someone who held […]

Me: I was ashamed to be a Yoga instructor

I did not grow up thinking I was going to become a yoga instructor, nor an avid yoga practitioner.

When I finally, formally, transitioned away from what I thought was my “career” less than 2 years ago, I cringed whenever anyone asked me what I did for a living. Given the professional/social network I cultivated over […]

Life: Are you a REAL yogi?

Yogis are aware.

Sure, I am aware when I get on top of my sticky mat for 90 minutes.

Yogis practice conscious breath.

Yeah, I breathe. I even ujjayi breathe. Take that.

Yogis practice non-judgment.

Okay, I DO try and practice this, but I’m so bad at it I don’t even want to try sometimes.

Yogis are […]

Life: Monday Morning Musings

Good morning Yogis,

In recent months, as some of you may have taken notice, I’ve been on a hiatus with teaching, consenting to Life’s twists and turns and working on letting myself enjoy the ride. Personally, I’ve never been good with surprises, or unplanned events, happenings, you name it. In other words, I am yes, sort […]
