Back to life, back to reality

Happy Hump Day Friends! 1

While I have been back on the workday grind since Monday, the reality of life is still struggling to sink in. Don’t get my wrong, I don’t hate my job, maybe just in comparison to the alternative, but I’m finding it hard to wear regular clothes and resist the urge to spontaneously break into a yoga flow. photo 2

I’m even noticing it in my relationship with Phil. I love my fiance so much but spending a week surrounding by like minded women who support and share in my passions is hard to come back from. He asked me, as a looked at pictures my yogi family posted on social media, if my fantasy life was more interesting than my real one, and my heart wanted to scream YES! photo 3

Thats not to say my ‘real life’ isn’t appealing, because I recognize how blessed I am, but I don’t understand why I can’t have both. Why I can’t be financially successful, LOVE what I do, and be surrounded by people who share my passions?!?!?!

I have to believe the answer is I can…I just need to figure out a way! For now, I need to remember to find contentment in everyday, look for the good/love/light in every situation, and most importantly never forget that I always get to choose my attitude!

Until next time, keep smiling! 🙂

Yogi Family

The journey has begun! I just got back from the kick off week of my Yoga Medicine 200hr Teacher Training and I am so thrilled to tell you all about it! ym200

We spent the week in Tulum Mexico learning anatomy, asanas and the basics of teaching to lay the foundation for the next few months. Mornings were early, watching the sunshine and sipping on my breakfast…sunrise

…and days were long, filled with lectures, physical practice, partner work and meditation. My body may be sore but my heart is filled with love and inspiration from all the amazing women I spent the week with.

I can’t wait to spend the next few months growing in my personal practice and honing my teaching skills with the coolest yogi family a girl could ask for.family

Until next time, keep smiling! 🙂
