I truly cannot believe that the last weekend of summer 2013 has come and gone. Kids are back to school today, the days are getting shorter and the chilly mornings of Autumn are among us. I must say that I did not plan on being away from the blog for all of August but when summer calls one must be ready to answer.
You keep putting one foot in front of the other, walk when you have to, push through your limits, tell your brain to shut up and just keep going. I decided that enough was enough and if the weather is not going to cooperate then I am just going to have to run in the cold…
For over a year I have been practicing yoga consistently. My realization is the more I practice, the more I crave it. To me, it’s an investment in myself. A way of showing gratitude and love to my body and my well-being. The time I spend on my mat allows me time to reflect but also gives me strength and inspiration to keep practicing. Some days I feel completely balanced, some days not so much. But everyday that I practice I truly find myself connecting more with my spirit, becoming more grounded and learning something new. To me there is no lessons greater then the ones we teach ourselves.
Get on your mat and enjoy the journey
Thank you so much for coming to visit me today in the form of french fries and doughnuts. I bet you think you’re so sneaky! But guess what? I’m stronger than you are. You can’t beat me so don’t even try! I’ll take everything you throw at me and turn it into motivation to work harder and get stronger. So thanks for that…I appreciate you trying to knock me down because it only builds me up and makes me wanna kick your butt even more. Next time you might want to bring your A-game when you try to mess with me because clearly you have failed…

After thinking about my post yesterday and about what inspires me (you) to succeed, I wanted to take the time to offer some inspiration to those of you who are out there and ready to call it quits or perhaps have just hit a wall with your resolutions.
First off, just stop…
After my car accident it took me a long time to be able to go back and practice yoga and after being away for almost 6 weeks I thought I would never be able to get my practice back to where it was post accident. Probably like many people out there, I have never thought of myself as a flexible person. I cannot bend into a pretzel to save my life and most definitely am not a gymnast!
