lammas blessings to you!

happy lammas, everyone!

today, i hope you take the time to reflect on the changes and blessings that you have received this year and set intentions for the remaining times we have this year.

i know, even with the struggles i’ve gone through, i have much to be thankful for.

a great way to give thanks and honor the universe for the gifts you’ve been given is to set up an altar and offering for whoever or whatever you feel has given you the things you have.

if you don’t honor or worship a deity, simply set up an altar and offering to honor yourself and your achievements.

may the next few months be plentiful and full and vibrant!

riding that ebb and flow…

i’m in a weird place.

my mind is clearer than it has been in actual months (both thought-wise and pain-wise), i’ve decided that i want to go back to school (though i haven’t told anyone because i need to do this for me, not them), and the business i’m trying to open (the first step of which being this blog) has made amazing progress.

needless to say, i’ve never been more productive.

it’s exciting and it’s scary.

i feel this incredible need to go-go-go-go, but i’m also exhausted and i don’t want to burn myself out.

i suppose, in some ways, this post is a reminder that i need to stop and breathe once in a while and that’s okay.

my biggest complaint about society is that everyone is in such a rush all the time, even while i fall into the same trap as the rest of the world.

so, this is me, slowing down.

i have all the time in the world to accomplish the things i want to and it’s not a race.

I AM enjoying the calm and stillness of the creative process,

what will be, will be.

i just need to remember to be patient.

a good stretch…

i’m ashamed to admit that my personal daily yoga practice has been pretty non-existant these last few months.

sometimes, life is rough and the last couple years have been no exception. unfortunately, instead of turning to the mat, i turned away from it and spend a lot of time curled up in a pile of blankets and ignoring all of my problems.

things have finally begun settling down however, and i find myself missing the ritual of a daily practice.

so, to remedy this, i began searching for an online/at home yoga class that i could take even on days when i couldn’t get myself to the gym and i came across http://www.dailyom.com and subsequently, sadie nardini.

because i am so out of practice and out of shape, i decided to go with her 21 day beginner class.

i’m excited to get started again, which i plan to do, bright and early before work tomorrow morning.

apart from getting me up and out of bed when i’ve become accustomed to laying there until the last possible minute, starting my day off with a ritual and a workout gives me something to look forward to so i can start my work day stress free and clear headed.

hopefully, it won’t take too long to get back into the swing of things, and even if it does, i suppose that’s all part of the process, isn’t it?
