purplefeathers I've been laying in bed all day. I've meditated by paying attention to my breath, by giving myself reiki. By following my thoughts when they've started to turn towards "guilt" and "shame", and simply seeing them for what they were: pre-conceived ideas and self-imposed restraints.

Today turned into a sick/rest day for me. Allergies and the start of my cycle have completely drained my energy levels. Knowing my body, I realized I had a choice. I could continue on with my schedule, pushing myself to work today, which could potentially result in a crash tonight, tomorrow, or this weekend. ~OR~

I could put me first. Spend the day in bed, sleeping until my body woke up naturally, drinking warm liquids, and simply resting. Doing the things that fill me up and nourish me. This looks like meditating, listening to soft music while cuddling with Mynx, reading @mantramagazine and seeing my beautiful friend @mynameisjessamyn being featured! ️ Knowing when it's time to rest is such an important aspect of #selfcare and what's equally important is to NOT FEEL GUILTY. Your to-do list, activities, and jobs will be there tomorrow. Be fully present with yourself and your body today, so you can be fully present always. ️ • • • • • • • • •

purplefeathers When the only thing I want to do is lay down to rest (not sleep, just rest), and I have to work all day, the moments where I can sit and simply be still are precious.
Taking a rest while on a break to check in with myself, assess my energy levels, and breathe. #MonthofMeditation

purplefeathers When you've been sniffling and sneezing since Sunday morning.
A Vitamin C smoothie is just what I needed this morning! 1 cup Orange juice. 1 clementine. 1 blood orange (not pictured).
1 banana.
1 cup frozen Trader Joes pineapple chunks.
1 carrot. (no carrot emoji! 😯) Blend in a high powered blender to make sure that carrot gets blended in smoothly and enjoy! ️ • • • • • • • • •

purplefeathers Found this picture while scrolling through my phone and it fits with where i am in life right now...surrendering my need to control the outcome of every action or decision I'm trusting that the vision I see before me is my path. #MonthofMeditation

purplefeathers @caffedamorepgh seriously won my heart this morning! Not only is their hot chocolate creamy and delicious, but when I asked for it to go they offered it to me in a mason jar! For an extra $1, and $.25 off future drinks, and a great way to be more environmentally friendly, of course I'm going to fall in love!
I will be visiting them every Monday after my 9:30 am Rise & Shine yoga class at @gardenofmind_ #hotchocolate #masonjar #Pittsburgh #pittsburghyoga #pittsburghcoffee #coffeeshoplove #yogalife

purplefeathers // #practicepracticepractice #yogachallenge Day 20 * hosted by @beachyogagirl@kinoyoga • supporting @twloha •What I’m focusing on today : #Strength

With the emotional turmoil that has been happening recently, I've lost focus, and in doing so , I've lost the connection to my inner strength. Coming into any warrior pose on my mat reconnects me with the pieces of me that feel lost. Keeping my heart open allows me to remember the perfection in the ebb and flow of life.

purplefeathers // #practicepracticepractice #yogachallenge Day 17 (but I’m not going in order!) * hosted by @beachyogagirl@kinoyoga • supporting @twloha

What I’m focusing on today : #Strength

I stopped participating in this challenge unknowingly, and then when I realized it, I felt guilty. Which is an odd thing to be guilty about. Why am I feeling that I let someone down by not posting daily? The reason I stopped participating is because I felt that when I’m not posting yoga pictures, that I’m not truly showing my practice. How silly!

These are my rock climbing shoes. I don’t have anything witty or bright to share about them other than I absolutely love rock climbing. It helps build my strength because yoga and rock climbing focus on different muscles, and the energy of both is distinctly different yet can be very similar. They both can have the feminine, softer flowing yin energy, with bursts of fierce, masculine yang energy.
