The Latest

Come as you are. Your yoga mat is a place for healing. Let go of the expectations that you must be perfect in order to practice. It’s called a Practice for a reason. In fact, it’s a practice of at least 10,000 times. Again and again and again return to your mat and meditation cushion. You will fall down. You will screw up. You will have a learning curve on your way to compassion, forgiveness, surrender, & love. Don’t underestimate the hidden power of your own inner zeal. Don’t confuse discipline with difficulty. The muscles of the mind, body, and soul that you exercise the most are the ones that become the strongest. The ability to grit your teeth through a few seconds of an “advanced” asana won’t make your a better yogi - But a practice focused on elevating your quality of life and relationships will raise the vibration of love for the entire planet. Come as you are. And let the Practice undo your lifetime of doing.

Promise Yourself…..

To be so strong that nothing
can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity
to every person you meet.

To make all your friends feel
that there is something in them
To look at the sunny side of everything
and make your optimism come true.

To think only the best, to work only for the best,
and to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others
as you are about your own.

To forget the mistakes of the past
and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times
and give every living creature you meet a smile.

To give so much time to the improvement of yourself
that you have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear,
and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world,
not in loud words but great deeds.
To live in faith that the whole world is on your side
so long as you are true to the best that is in you. -Christian Larson

β˜€οΈSalute the sun.β˜€οΈ Every morning. It rises and shines just for you. Soak in its energy. Let it pulse through you. Let it recharge your batteries and fill your tank. Today is a brand new day. The troubles and joys of yesterday belong to yesterday and the worries and fears of tomorrow belong to tomorrow. But today - Today is here and it is glorious. And the sun is waiting for you to believe it too.

I still get giddy over rainbows. I don’t think it will ever change. It’s good to get giddy over something often. It ignites curiosity and joy. And some #rainbow dancing in the driveway in your nightgown. 🌈 sweet dreams.

2nd new food for me this week - Mamey Fruit! Tastes a little like sweetened carrots and is super creamy. I just ate it straight from the skin with a big spoon. Yum! Maybe a #mamey smoothie is in store tomorrow ….

Everything I’ve learned about a Drishti, I learned from my family …. #ultrababy’s intense dedication, my corgi’s obsessiveness, and my boxer’s playfulness as she attempts to steal my daughter’s yard horse (aka rake). Their focus is unshakable. One day (insert theme to The Twilight Zone) we will all channel our powers and actually focus on the same thing …. But until then, I’m learning to find balance while I juggle my daily circus fun. πŸ˜‚
