One Year In

It was one year ago today that I began this blog per the suggestion of a friend. It was suggested to me as a way for me to put myself out there and I think, in many ways, to start revealing a side of myself I often keep hidden. I had never read a blog much less written one. I started fresh and new with no knowledge on how to blog or what to blog about, so my approach was just to write what was on my mind and in my heart and allow it all to unfold. I don't write as many entries as I thought I might but feel good about what I do share. Mostly, I feel that this is a great way to understand what is swirling around on the inside, direct things a bit and get some clarity in the process. The best part of this whole blog adventure is that now I read several blogs on a regular basis and have found that I love the blog world. I enjoy reading friend's blogs and non-friend's blogs alike. I often find myself inspired by the words and experiences of others and that is always a gift…

Feeling the Flux

"How different our lives are when we really know what is deeply important to us, and keeping that picture in mind, we manage ourselves each day to be and to do what really matters most."

Some days when I practice, I feel solid and strong. On other days, I feel a bit weak and have to really work hard to keep the integrity in each and every pose. I am finding that, even at this stage, it is necessary for me to change my approach to my practice. When I was pregnant with Liam, I felt good but was also in this space of feeling like I needed to prove that things were the same, when, well, they weren't. It was almost as if I thought I had to uphold t…

A New Development~

“Change is the essence of life. Be willing to surrender what you are for what you could become.” I think this quote is the perfect beginning for this post. Actually, this is sort of a new beginning, a time of many changes to come. But isn't life full of that anyway? So here is the latest development in my life, I am pregnant. I found out on January 27Th that I am indeed in a new phase of creation. This period in my life is about the creation of another human being and the transformation of myself into something new too. This new twist on things does change my plans a bit with regard to the teacher trainings I wanted to attend this year here in Tucson and the traveling to Colorado for the Anusara gathering but such is life. As tempting as it is to want to do things toward the end of my pregnancy, I know that would not be wise. I do, however, have another harebrained idea. What I have been contemplating is applying for my Anusara certification before this baby comes. Why? W…
