    Comfort Zone: Pushing Out of it

    This week I dared to push myself beyond what I thought was my limit. After a certain age I believe we all begin to develop an opinion of ourselves. We put ourselves in a category or label ourselves in a particular way. Normally these categories or labels justify how we personally see ourselves in this world. For as long as I can remember I have given myself this label or that label. I was the “smart girl”, ” the funny one”, ” the mom” and “the wife” and the list goes on and on. The one label that I had never given myself but always wanted was “the outgoing one”,…

    6 Tips to Ease into the Last 90 days of 2019

    Like a thief into the night, summer has left us high and dry! When did it become fall? It seems like just a few weeks ago we were easing into summer and finally winding down before the hustle and bustle of the holidays. Hopefully I’m not alone in the feeling that I need another 2 or 3 months before we even start to think about Oct. For my household in the last 3 months of the year there are 7 birthdays (1 of course is mine), 4 holidays (we celebrate Halloween like its 1999), 3 possible holiday office parties, 2 possible family holiday parties, coordination of family visits and getting the…

    Inhale, Exhale: Meditation for Beginners

    Meditation for a long time has gotten a bad wrap. Truth be told there was a time not too long ago that if you asked me if I meditated I would boldly say nope thats not the life that I live. Like most of you reading I had preconceived notions in my head about what meditation was and how I didn’t need that sort of thing in my life (LOL). Spoiler alert, I was wrong on so many levels. Myths that I had built in my mind: Meditation is sitting in a room in silence, there is 0 chance I can ever quiet my thoughts, meditation has no real purpose…

    Discovering You: Turning a Passion into a Career

    Recently I had an opportunity to really “hang” out with my sister-in-love, and I say “hang” because for the very 1st time we were able to go off and just do what we wanted without the worry of kids + hubbingtons ect. While we were out we talked candidly about our futures and what we wanted next in our lives. Cuz honey, the planning doesn’t stop just because you are married and have children. Just like her I have been working since I was just 14 yrs old. Let that sink in, at this time in my life I have had a job of some sort for almost 21 years!…

    Yoga + Self Care

    The reasons why I came to yoga are so simple now that I think back to my very 1st day on the mat. I knew deep down there was something missing, didnt have a clue of what exactly but one thing was for sure each and every time I came off that mat I felt closer to whatever “it” was. Social media would have you believe that yoga is about being apart of Cirque Du Soleil or that you have to be this freaky thin contortionist. None of that is true. In its simplest form yoga means to “yoke” or bring “union”, yoga in all its glory is the practice…

    Guilt Cycle +Authentic Living

    You know what I miss most about being a child, other than the obvi (bills, food, no real responsibilities)? I miss letting sh*t go! As a kid I didnt dwell on mistakes that may have happened or things that I didnt do well. Pre- middle school, it was all Salior Moon, My Little Pony, Are you scared of the dark? + so forth. If something went wrong, I felt remorse, apologized and moved on. Humans are the only species that continue to pay for past transgressions or mistakes. Think about it, remember a time when you made some sort of mistake or miscalculation that you completely and 100% take accountability…

    Gratitude

    Coming off a long weekend of intense body + mind/soul work through Yoga teacher training I was inspired to actively show gratitude this week. Dont get me wrong I am one to say a quick thanks to the universe when things work out and of course when I am protected from not so pleasant things or people. My goal was to tune in deeper on the gratitude front and truly “attempt” to appreciate things/people in real time. Surprisingly it was actually harder than I thought it would be. Most humans if thinking about things that they are grateful for or blessed to have ect, we think big ticket items such…

    Is Inclusion Important?

    I am guilty of making plans and cancelling them. Yes I am that person. All plans sound good at the time of making them, then the day comes + life happens. I have to feel deep down inside that I am not the only one out there like that right? At any rate, a month ago I stumbled upon this EventBrite for this free CBD yoga session and thought hmm seems very interesting. The over zealous past me thought it would be a great idea to attend this yoga session after completing a weekend of yoga teacher training. If I could go back to past me, I would punch me…

    Pressin’ Forward

    For the most part, I would say a great deal of America has access to some form of social media. We are getting to the point in our society where each day we can log into this page or that book, google this information or receive that tweet at the drop of a dime. Social media in all its glory is an amazing concept that keeps billions upon billions of people engaged and connected. We are able to share in one another’s success + wins , we are able to show compassion and concern during their downs. We are forever connected and inter webbed. With the ability to track all…

    Check + Reset

    Ever make this bombass plan, maybe an evening at home, girls trip, vacation, dinner ect, whatever; everything is planned down to the “T” and some random sh*t happens to blow it up. Yea, me too. It is very easy to allow the frustrations of things not going the way you planned or envisioned get to you. Its also extremely easy to allow setbacks to fluster you or even give you a reason to throw in the towel and give up. But what if you were literally 1 day, 4 weeks, 6 months away from having a completely different outlook? This week has drug my ass since Monday morning and it…
