SPEAK

FIFTH CHAKRA: Vishuddha, the Throat Chakra. The right to speak.

THE SOUND OF SILENCE

I want to talk to you about this time I felt stuck. Really stuck. Really down. Really not myself. Depressed. I would actually classify this thing that happened, that I’m coming out of, as depressed. And that is scary as fuck. I have lots of reasons why it might have happened. Significant health issues, insomnia, … Continue reading THE SOUND OF SILENCE

SIDEWAYS

Don't wait.  Change now. Get out of your comfort zone. Wake up and move differently. Create awareness. Be mindful. Live fully. Seize the moment. Grow. Get up and go for it. New Year, New You. . . Yep, it's still January alright, and as the nearest cardio room would indicate, we, as a general community, … Continue reading SIDEWAYS

FRIDAY

Okay people. We are almost there. Final push. Four more days of 2014 remaining. You’ve made it through several rounds of dysfunctional family fun, successfully lived to see another December 26th begin and end, and probably (just guessing) already made and broke several promises to detox, eat clean, and go for a run tomorrow. Congrats. You’re … Continue reading FRIDAY

SOMETIMES I LISTEN

So, I’ve been going along here, full speed ahead. 13-15 hour work days almost seven days a week. Getting my shit done. Saying “yes” to everything. Saying “no” to very, very, very little. It’s been awesome. Amazing. Fan.Fucking.Tastic. Things like this have happened: My yoga classes are growing, some even doubling in size. My writing … Continue reading SOMETIMES I LISTEN

STORY OF MY LIFE

Plans. Timelines. Spreadsheets. Google Calendar. Ah, my happy place. It’s so lovely living in the boxes of my curated life. So clean. So tidy. So cozy, predictable, and safe. Bullshit. I call bullshit on that whole deal. You hear me?  Bull.Shit. You know what plans really are? A crapshoot. A coping mechanism. Our brain’s way … Continue reading STORY OF MY LIFE

ALL THAT GLITTERS

“Oooooh. Shiny. Prettttttttty. I like it. I think I might want to have it”Who: me What: An opportunity, a big, rather unexpected one that’s kind of right up my alley, so to speak. More specifically, the chance to bring many things back into my life that I left behind a year ago- stability, consistency, a regular … Continue reading ALL THAT GLITTERS

BURN

Today I told my class I would see them next week, on Monday. You know, as in five days from now. There was silence, confused looks, a question about whether or not there was class on Wednesday this week. To which I replied, oblivious, “you mean like today?” Ummmmmmm. Nooooooo. Nope. Just no. Today is … Continue reading BURN

CLOSING TIME

I made a tough trip last week; a nine hour round trip drive to say goodbye to someone truly wonderful whom I love dearly. Someone who had a tremendous impact on my life and the way in which I interact with others. Someone who taught me grace, and humility, and above all, love. My Grandma … Continue reading CLOSING TIME

I LIKE THE WAY YOU WORK IT

I am starting to realize there are people who work, and people who work OUT. Apparently, I am increasingly becoming one of the latter. Oops. Note to self- find a way for exercise to pay the bills, like soon. Given my flexible(ish) schedule, I am able to devote an average of about two hours a … Continue reading I LIKE THE WAY YOU WORK IT
