Perfect. A four letter word.

They say we teach what we most need to learn. Within the past few weeks I’ve caught myself procrastinating, and sometimes abandoning, my desires for what I want, because I didn’t think it was “perfect” or that I wouldn’t be able to perform “perfectly.” I was beating myself up, and then, the other day, a […]

How was the challenge created?

I received an interesting message today that at first upset me, and then I took a step back and put myself in his shoes and realized if I were him I would feel the same way. He accused me of copying his challenge program. When I read it, I could see why, they are very […]

It’s February! How’s the New Year’s “eat healthy, exercise more, lose weight, tone up, feel amazing” resolution coming?

The power to choose

So often we are faced with desires, requirements, and an unexplained need to define ourselves in order to feel like we’re making progress along this crazy journey called life. We create statements, reminders, and to do lists to help us feel a sense of belonging, accomplishment, or at the very least a sense of maintaining […]

When did yoga become like chocolate cake?

Just the other day I wrote a post, On being grateful. In that post I wrote about showing gratitude to others, and how it’s not only something you should do for others, but something that can have a lasting impact on your personal wellbeing. But since writing that post I can’t help but notice how […]

On being generous

Have you ever had someone be so generous to you that you were speechless? So giving that it made you think, “What did I do to deserve this?” To be so blown away by someone’s complete and total selflessness that your head and heart are sent reeling, unable to catch your breath or think straight?
