I believe that even in darkness, beauty can be found. That forgiving others and yourself doesn't mean you are weak. Setting boundaries for your time and your space doesn't make you mean. Walking away from what no longer serves you doesn't make you a coward. "Forgiving someone isn't approving how they wronged you, rather it's no longer allowing their wrong to define you." - Rachel Wolchin

I started off this month doing the #yogagirlchallenge and about a week or so in I kind of just stopped. The truth is somedays i don't take pictures. I don't always set up my phone to record myself doing yoga. Or meditating. There isn't always someone there to be my "camera-man/woman". And you know what? I'm okay with that. When I'm ready to hop back on social media full throttle and post a pic a day, or multiples, I will.
For now I'm enjoying my life. Doing my very best not to allow other people's negativity to pull me down. If you're angry, and feeling negative, check yourself first. ✌🏼 .

Today this was my yoga.
Being in nature with family, that I met for the first time.
The water was so beautiful, clear, with tiny golden flecks, refreshing. I don't get into the ocean often enough. It is so easy to forget about all the power that water holds. How strong it can be, as well as smooth and gentle.
My mind is currently in a whirlwind of thoughts and feelings. My heart and my prayers go out to everyone that has been affected by hurricane's Harvey and Irma. The people up north from me that have been affected by all of the wildfires. And to everyone in Mexico and Guatemala that have been shaken up by that 8.2 quake. 🙏🏼💟✨

The fur babes know no boundaries. They love unconditionally at any moment without a care in the world. They don't care that I may be "busy" they just come on over and share their love with me. "The ultimate lesson all of us have to learn is unconditional love, which includes not only others but ourselves as well." - Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

Day 6... Ever since I was a little girl, I moved around A LOT! And I was always terrible at keeping in contact. I mean, we were kids and I had to make new friends, go to a different school, still had homework and chores and what not. So losing contact just happened. On both ends. Now that I am an "adult" (whatever that means) I've learned that it is much harder to make and keep new friends. That it most definitely is something that you need to work for.
Over the years I have made many friends but only stayed in contact with a few. I still hold those I no longer speak with close to my heart. I have kept them in my prayers and have sent good wishes. Not all the time but when they've found their way into my thoughts. I still have so much love for those who are only in my memories. It just goes to show us the ever changing roles, and relationships we have in this life.
And even tho I may have few friends, now, and they are scattered across the world, they are true! I can go months without talking to them, years without seeing them, but when we do share with each other it is as though we were never apart. And for that, I am grateful!
Thank you Maria, for being one of those friends. And for making such a beautiful dinner for us!

I love this pose. Probably because I carry so much tension around with me. #PuppyPose stretches the spine and opens the shoulders and heart. Among other things. I think this is a great pose for everyone to do right now. With all the madness that has been going on we all need a little less stress, a little more calm and a whole lot of love.
Working on opening my heart a little more everyday. 🤗 Spread love. ✌🏻#KillThemWithKindness

For me, being flexible has never come easy. And at times it can be extremely discouraging especially being that I am a certified yoga teacher. People always assume that I can "do cool sh!t" fold myself in half and I MUST be able to do the splits. Well I can't, yet. Maybe one day I will be able to hold pigeon pose. For now I work with #DeerPose resting my head on a block.
Sometimes it makes me sad, frustrated and a whole world of "negative" emotions. I used to get jealous of others that were able to move with ease into poses that I have worked sooo hard for, and still am unable to achieve. It wasn't until meeting my teachers @samdhana_yoga and @olireinsch who taught me how to meet myself where I was. To accept myself, faults and all. And to be awesome every single day. Some days I still feel a little green when I see other yogis,dancers and gymnasts stretch and move their bodies so gracefully.
Most days I'm happy for those who can do what I can't and am inspired to work on my own practice, physically, mentally and emotionally. I can only be me, and I am grateful and blessed to be who i am. ✌🏼💟☮️✝️☪️🕉

This is what life was like for me today. Rolling out tight spots and finding a way to comfortably rest in the uncomfortable.
I find that more often than not I feel awkward around people. In almost any and every situation. I'm always so unsure as how to be myself. I mean that sounds easy, self explanatory. Somehow, it's not. 🤷🏻‍♀️I feel the same in my body, at times. Unsure how to flow freely, finding "sticky" spots in different places meanwhile others have gone. Not exactly sure where I was headed with all of this. Hahaha it's nice when I notice little differences in myself. In life. #yogagirlchallenge #yogaeverydamnday

Day2... better a little late than never. I did take this pic yesterday and had every intention of posting it yesterday but somehow the day got away from me.
The more you learn about yoga, the more you learn that it isn't just a physical act. It doesn't matter what your practice looks like on your mat. What is more important is how you feel, how you act and interact with others. Some days I pull my mat out to move my body other days I'll rest comfortably in bed and meditate. This heat as of late has been torturous for those of us without a/c. So instead I rested with my pup. Loving her and receiving her unconditional love. Even though she was hot too, she didn't seem to mind. When I headed into work last night I was in a very calm and peaceful state of mind. Finding the calm in the storm of life is a daily challenge. Yesterday, with the help of my pup I was blessed enough to find that calm.

Sometimes this is what my yoga ends up as. I have learned that there are days that I have to step off of my mat and breathe. Get away from what it should look and feel like. And accept the challenges and frustrations along the way. Getting in on #yogaeverydamnday with @yoga_girl and the rest of those crazy, free and beautiful yogis out there.

Some of you may know, I've gone to other states with the @americanredcross To help with disaster relief in the past. It was always a very humbling experience.
My heart and prayers go out to the families that have been affected by hurricane Harvey.
If you can make the time to help others in need it doesn't only change their lives, it will change yours as well. Get out and help someone today! Change lives. Spread love!
If you can't physically make it out to Texas but you still want to help stop by your local Red Cross or @laseraway to make a food and/or clothing donation.

Scraping... love it. 💟 It's an awesome TCM technique. Read more about it on my FB page. (Link in my bio.) Also, I must say, that I am terrible at posting things on social media. Although from time to time I do slip into the rabbit hole of it all. If anyone has any tips they would like to share as far as posting content daily, I'm all ears. Or if you have a question, comment, suggestion please feel free to leave it below. 👇🏼👇🏼
