Dedicate: Joy

Today’s yoga practice was focused on Joy!!  I know that I feel more joyful through my days just because I meet at the mat every morning.  My word for 2017 was joy, the idea of choosing joy.  I still work to meet this goal every day.   Joy is a decision.  A really brave oneContinue reading “Dedicate: Joy”

Best Life: Week 3

Holding myself accountable is something that I truly enjoy.  It really helps me to stay on task and focused.  My current accountability is here, you.  Though…I am not really sure anyone cares or would “yell” at me if I fell off the wagon.  Just the idea of disappointing is good enough reason for me toContinue reading “Best Life: Week 3”

Dedicate: Steady

Steady: Supported or Balanced Man…this should be someone’s word for the year.  Maybe, I will hold onto it and use it for 2020. Foundationally (this should be a word) speaking, I supposed that it isn’t much different from from Purposeful Living.  After all, that is based on balance. The idea behind today’s lesson is toContinue reading “Dedicate: Steady”

Dedicate: Light

Day 21/30 happened this morning.  Bright and early, by 6:30 am I was all done with my practice for the day.  I can not emphasize enough how much I love Yoga With Adriene. Do yourself a favor and go check it out if you haven’t already. Today we talked about light.  Our own personal lightContinue reading “Dedicate: Light”

Dedicate: Lead

Today was day 20 of 30.  Wow was it amazing first thing this morning.  Yoga just really sets my whole day up for success.  So thankful that I make time in the morning to get my practice in. Anyway, it lit a fire in my core and in my mind.  The practice today was aboutContinue reading “Dedicate: Lead”

Dedicate: Learn

My yoga practice this morning was focused on what you learn. You live… you learn. Which immediately took me back to my freshman year and had me singing this song. “Oh, oh, oh I, recommend getting your heart trampled on to anyone, yeah I, recommend walking around naked in your living room, yeah Swallow itContinue reading “Dedicate: Learn”

Best Life: Week 2

Well, we are now 2 full weeks into the new year. Which means I am 2 full weeks into being on the wagon. What does it mean to be on the wagon?  No beer, low-carbs, not-smoking and working out every day.  Also, things that help with my mental health like writing and reading every day.Continue reading “Best Life: Week 2”

Dedicate: Grace

Just in the last couple of years, I have been fascinated by the idea of Grace.  I have been known to be really hard on other people, but no more than I am hard on my ownself (this should be a word). Today my yoga practice was about grace.  Allowing some for yourself.  Not justContinue reading “Dedicate: Grace”

Dedicate: Space

Today my yoga practice was about creating space! Not just space at the mat, a wider stance or a bigger stretch.  What can space mean in our lives?  This can look different to everybody. For me it means creating space for ideas, people and adventures that I can’t even imagine yet.  Creating space for changeContinue reading “Dedicate: Space”
