When your food is prettier than you.
You can't run from your shadow. But you can invite it to dance.
Live less out of habit and more out of intent. As when you're clear on your intention you take inspired action that's in alignment with your words and truth. You also quickly manifest what you desire because you are clearly putting out words and actions that are in alignment with the things you want to attract into your life. So, what will you intend today?

Peace. It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.

Your perception of me is a reflection of you.
Your perception shapes your reality. Anything is possible.
Getting back to a physical practice after a time of being away presents a challenge for the body and also for the mind. We all have them, those voices that can be little trouble makers...mine will tell me to go faster and harder when I know taking it easy is what I truly need. So whether I'm doing circuit training, yoga sculpt, hell taking a brisk walk down the street, I'll be practicing my yoga, connecting to wisdom and understanding, acting in truth. Taking it slow, one sit-up, push-up, bicep curl, one class, one step, one day at a time.

Yesterday morning I drove myself to the ER. After I awoke from an extremely fitful night of sleep, I found I could not swallow, it was hard to breathe. "Is it the infection in my throat?" I asked myself, "Or is it an anaphylactic response to the antibiotic?", something I'm prone to having. In that moment I could feel the adrenaline rising, I had a choice, freak the hell out or use my yoga. I think I did both.
Once home, exhausted from the ordeal, reflecting upon the experience, I was feeling a variety of emotions ranging from gratitude to frustration. From a 3 hour wait at Immediate Care the day before only to spend 15 minutes with the doctor who prescribed me a med that would ultimately send me to the ER where yesterday a fast acting team took immediate action and allowed me to navigate what I did and did not want to happen. A Yin Yang experience highlighting the importance of thoughtful human connection in a system where patients and employees alike often seem broken and frustrated by navigating a highly complex and confusing network of red tape, group codes, and more. Our hospitals, our doctors offices, our immediate care clinics, these are the places where I feel we need it most, a soft approach, a smile, an openness, an extended helping hand, especially when we are sick, ill, vulnerable, or even afraid.
Rather than allow my mind to spiral into frustration, toward something I could not control, I brought my awareness back to my breath, to my mantra, "freak the hell out or use my yoga". And in this way I learned, making challenge an opportunity, making fear my teacher, my friend. Things like this suck yes but in the end I'm grateful for the reminder of what this practice has and continues to provide. Yesterday morning, while looking into the mirror to fully grasp the nature of the swelling in my throat, I paused, closed my mouth and captured a glimpse of something that was just as important for me to see, a belief, an assurance, an understanding of me. Truth, I believe is wisdom in action. In knowing myself, I would navigate this path, no matter how frustrating or scary it had the potential to be...

Each day we have an option, a choice, to be the reason why someone continues to believe in the goodness of people. Yesterday that person was @victoriabaggio who surprised me with these gorgeous flowers when she came to take my Yoga Sculpt class. I was deeply touched by the gesture, one that absolutely made my day. An excellent reminder that we have a choice, an opportunity each and every day to change the world, one smile, one kind gesture, one bouquet of flowers at a time.
Love comes in so many forms. Tonight I'm in love with pizza and movies from my couch. You?

Sometimes you've just gotta stop and smell the roses. I slept through my alarm today missing what I'd set it for. Rather than fume or let it fester, I took a quick jog to one of my favorite spots and am getting my attitude, and this day back on track. A little shift in perspective and a little matcha 💚 help every time. "Just cause life hands you a cactus, doesn't mean you have to sit on it".
