March 18, 2016 Better now than never.

I hope you all had a great St. Patricks day! I have put off doing “Revolved Hand to Foot Seated Leg Position of the Pose Dedicated to Garuda”. I have flexible shoulders. I have a twisty back. I love doing Garuda legs. It baffles me that this pose is so difficult for me. The hand is…

Happy St. Patricks Day!!

Feeling festive so I bended my personal rule about keeping my outfit the same and I added a green anklet! I have so much respect for the yogis in the book that do any garland pose. They are surprisingly difficult! For “Half Lotus One-Legged Garland Pose” I was unable to get my heel down so this…

March 16, 2016

I have been unable to go to my Wednesday tumbling class and so I am a little nervous for tonight. I think my coaches will want to push me so I will have to be proactive in figuring out how much I can handle. Lately the classes have been rendering me almost useless the next…

March 15, 2016 ~ Usefulness

More thoughts as promised yesterday! “Sometimes if something is not beneficial it will take away the love that brought you there in the first place.” I have been thinking about how I lost the motivation to go to my third job. How the drive was no longer worth it. The pay wasn’t enough for the…

March 14, 2016

Long post yesterday for March 12th and March 13th Combined. I am going to keep it short and sweet today. 🙂 I am starting my second week of a new routine. (meaning I now only have 2 jobs instead of 3). I am excited to see what this new found breathing room will bring! Sometimes…

March 12, 2016 Doing a lot. And nothing at all.

So here I am doing some late night musing (finding the time to muse, and even then I am linking it with blogging- two birds with one stone..even though I should sometimes let these birds fly solo). I have been slacking on posting again. I am sitting post shower, wearing a mask on my face –…

Rain Thoughts March 11, 2016

I am feeling super tired today. This was before the rain began. It began pouring rain about an hour ago. Rain is super calming to me but today it is almost too calming. I long for a blanket and a good book. Instead I am finding the time to jot these thoughts down as I…

Make Yourself Uncomfortable. March 10, 2016

I have come to the realization that I must be uncomfortable in order to grow. No growth ever came form being complacent. Everyday I put myself in an uncomfortable situation (usually some of these poses). Sometimes I think I should film my reactions when I look at the yoga poses I am going to do for that…

The LA Photos

I think that Taylor Mickal is a very talented photographer and I wanted to make a page that allows easy access to all of the different times I use one of his photos for my blog. 🙂 You can find photos of his in these blog posts: A quick catch up. April 27, 2016 Quitting to Win…

March 9th, 2016 A slight change in perspective

The hardest pose for me to capture today was actually Tree Pose, which is surprising if you look at some of the other poses I included today. I love this variation of Tree Pose with the head rolling back. However, taking this pose facing the camera meant that I looked decapitated. I took so many…

March 8th, 2016 “Adulting”

To make up for some lost time I am posting 12 poses today 😀 I am feeling quite strong today. Taking more time to breathe and to get my life in order is really helping. I actually vacuumed today and did not complain about it. (I admit to listening to music and dancing with my…

March 7th, 2016 Grand Plans

I had grand plans to post this weekend as well as dance all hours for 3 days. Grand plans indeed.. I went to my first real Lindy Hop event. It was called Inspiration Weekend and it really was inspiring. My dance partner and I competed together for the first time and now we get to…
