mdpny At times it may feel as though you are alone on your journey, it probably just means you've cleared away the clutter and congestion in your life, made space for the people you need to meet, the positive and inspiring people who you'll move forward together with. 19h
  •   peacekwazzy I really don't know you, but just wanted to say this: I moved here alone back in December, and I'm 20 years old. Often times I get lonely here trying to navigate life and weed out the bad people, all while becoming one of the best business people this city has to offer (teasing). But I was using these exact words last night. Thank you for the validation. 19h

  •   mdpny @peacekwazzy Thank you, and glad you are enjoying your journey here! NYC is an amazing adventure, with just about every type of person. Def learned along the way that it's really worth holding out for the right people. I believe that like attracts like and if you are positive and motivated you'll organically be introduced to the right tribe! 17h

mdpny Day 16 - of the #BalanceBasics yoga Challenge hosted by @Laurasykora @Kinoyoga @Beachyogagirl and @Athleta is #Vasisthasana (Side Plank Pose), I'm practicing the lifted leg variation, feels more natural in my body after a night of dance class. Tonight I practiced it in front of the Manhattan Valley Public Library, because, well, reading is important. 1d

mdpny Day 15 - of the #BalanceBasics yoga Challenge hosted by @Laurasykora @Kinoyoga @Beachyogagirl and @Athleta is #Tadasana (The Mountain pose), I usually practice toes forward, but the challenge prescribed Ashtanga style, with turned out legs. Mountain pose can be a challenging one, it requires calm and stillness. When holding for a period of time it's tempting to shift and move around, goal is to remain motionless. I like it as a meditative posture, and so tonight I practiced it at home, where I could encourage stillness and let go of the day. Namaste! #yogaeverydamnday 2d

mdpny Biked 52miles (roundtrip) out to our @teaminkredibles practice today in Verona, NJ, celebrating @juicycinn birthday. Was unfamiliar terrain, but glad I challenged myself to do it, always get so much positive energy from the whole bar athletic community. I was rewarded with this amazing sunset over the Passaic river on the way home. 3d

mdpny I got tagged to share 10 lesser known things about myself by @johnnyutahx and @thebodegas . Tagging a few people in the post carry it on:

1- I'm 37
2- I'm originally from Idaho, but have called NY home for 12 years
3- I lived on my own on both coasts before the age of 25 (s/o to San Francisco!)
4- Health and fitness are my highest priorities. I workout daily, and get cranky if I don't. I eat well, and do not drink.
5- Bike is my fav mode of exploring and I get out often as I can
6- I'm deathly allergic to cats
7- My love of photography dates back to childhood (thanks to my mom, who always carried a camera in her purse)
8- My favorite photographer, by both body of work and by philosophy, is Bruce Davidson
9- I have a very short attention span, which keeps me hungry for new adventures and experiences
10- I'm socially curious and an extrovert, but my circle of close friends is small

mdpny Good morning Friday! So heres to moving upward today, to always be moving forward, to not giving up. A bit back a photographer who I respect had captioned an amazing photo “Sometimes I don’t know why I bother”, I am glad he bothered. Maybe we don't always know who we impact with what we create or say, but I believe there always is impact. We all are givers and receivers, it's the natural cycle, it's always worth the bother. 6d
