What I Mean When I Say, Yoga

“Today Is A Good Day”

Or maybe it isn't. But I'm saying it is. I'm waking up today and the first thought in my mind that I'm deliberately thinking is, "Today is a good day".

Give Your Feet A Break

Am I done talking about feet? No. Am I done talking about vacation? Yes. Kind of. Getting back from vacation and dealing with two very tired feet may have partially inspired this blog.

We're familiar with the small… Continue reading Navigating Failures

What I Mean When I Say

“I’ve Changed”

I don't say this often only because the moment doesn't often arise where I get to say it. If I could, I think I would tell everyone willing to listen that I've changed. Partially because I am absolutely obsessed with the concept of change. It's such a nifty idea isn't it? We can start off… Continue reading “I’ve Changed”

Power Yoga And Confidence

Confidence is hard to come by and if you have it, people try to take it away. Being confident is not the same as being arrogant no matter what someone else might try to tell you. It's okay to feel strong, powerful, and confident in yourself and your body's abilities. Dealing with negative comments though… Continue reading Power Yoga And Confidence
