Flashback Friday to me in a chair drinking wine because I'm currently in the same chair drinking wine... except it's not red, and I'm in pajamas, and I'm haggard. Cheers! #tgif
"Don’t worry that your life is turning upside down. How do you know that the side you are used to is better than the one to come?" - Rumi
🙋♂️ Good shows to watch? Goooooo! Just finished 13 Reasons Why. I just want the OA back already.. but have been into documentaries lately.

” I suppose in the end, the whole of life becomes an act of letting go.”
Thanks to the 🐰 for reminding me of how much I have to be grateful for after such an incredible day. Love you all!
Today's Mantra... Tuning into strength and surrendering to areas of weakness. Acknowledging the weakness and remembering that I can fill those areas with strength over time. By tuning in and listening, I am building strength. My ability to touch the weak areas takes great strength. I am the builder and therefore I must listen in order to build. I must tune in. I must feel. This is healing. This is my practice.
Shaking' off the week and stepping into Good Friday like... 🙃 And yes, that is Winston's slobber from his ball on the floor.

"It gets exhausting, trying to escape this moment, trying to avoid what is, trying to push away the waves of life, waves that are already deeply accepted in the vast ocean of present experience. And it gets exhausting, too, trying not to try. It’s truly exhausting, trying to avoid feeling exhausted. But the exhaustion is not a mistake, for it contains a great invitation, as everything does – the invitation to stop pretending to be ‘the exhausted one’, and admit that even exhaustion, yes, even that, is deeply allowed – already allowed – in what you are. You’re vast enough. So feel exhausted, feel more exhausted than you’ve ever felt! – and discover the Beloved right there. Even in the midst of exhaustion – which never belonged to you in the first place – who you are is truly inexhaustible." - Jeff Foster - A little reading that really stuck with me tonight. Had to share. ❤️
"To have faith is to trust yourself to the water. When you swim you don’t grab hold of the water, because if you do you will sink and drown. Instead you relax, and float." - Alan Watts - How do you stay hydrated before, during, and after your @corepoweryoga practice? I do so by using their new eco-friendly water bottles.

"Look for the bare necessities. The simple bare necessities. Forget about your worries and your strife. I mean the bare necessities are Mother Nature's recipes. That bring the bare necessities of life." - Missing this as my daily commute in and out of work right about now. #TheAmazon
Guys! April is one of my favorite months, as it is a month of transition and growth. As we blossom into spring, I am making it a point to take a moment of apprecition for this incredible planet. That is why I am joining @corepoweryoga and using the hasthag #YogisPlantingTrees. They've partnered with Canopy Project to donate a tree everytime a picture or video incorporating tree pose into it and using the hastag is posted. Do something good for our Mother Earth and take part in saving the planet. Do Yoga, plant a tree! #spon

"Caught by our own thoughts, we worry about every little thing, But once we get drunk on that Love, Whatever will be, will be." - Rumi
I've been having massive dreams the past few weeks. Most of them are taking place in my childhood home, but I'm still presently the age I am. Some are scary, some are funny, some are confusing, and some are just downright bizarre (I.e. I lost my big tooth in one last night 🤓). I used to rely a lot on family members and/or locations that made me comfortable during my childhood to heal. Recently I've realized I haven't needed support when facing stress. I haven't needed to call my parents or brother. I haven't day dreamed about escaping to the mountains in Utah, or running away to the desert. I've realized that the only way to change the situation if it's bothering me, is to do it myself. Maybe I've got some sub conscious anxiety with this recent change I've noticed in myself... but I suppose I'll just enjoy the new found strength until I figure out just what these dreams mean. 💭

Work week done. Friday ✔️. Walk through the door, take off the shoes, and immediately shake off lingering energy from the week with some movement ✔️! - Have been down with a head cold for the past couple of days. I absolutely HATE being sick. How my body feels effects me mentally big time, so when my head feels like it's in a bag... it's no bueno. Finally had a moment of clarity today and took full advantage of it with a quick little flow. Felt nice to say hi to my core and warm up the spine for a minute. Now it's time for some leftover Pho, tea, and a movie. On the mend and looking forward to feeling 💯 tomorrow. Happy Friday! 🙃
"The heavy is the root of the light. The unmoved is the source of all movement. Thus the Master travels all day without leaving home. However splendid the views, she stays serenely in herself. Why should the lord of the country flit about like a fool? If you let yourself be blown to and fro, you lose touch with your root. If you let restlessness move you, you lose touch with who you are." -Tao Te Ching
