in Reflections

I have high hopes for the year ahead. I always do. I’ll tell myself – This is the year. It’s time… It’s time. The words carry profound resolve and belief; yet at the same time harbor a seed of inadequacy. I’ll inevitably feel as if I didn’t do enough, that I could have done more. Read More ››

What if your love was liberated?

in Food For Thought, Reflections

I’ve been thinking a lot about love lately. Why do we choose to love who we do? Are we capable of loving everyone? In the past, I’ve been very selective of my love – reserved only for those close to me, namely family and friends. I only have so much love to give and I Read More ››

You Matter

in Food For Thought, Reflections

I just posted something from Seth Godin a couple days ago, but he’s just that good. This was his latest post. Have a read and see why you matter. During my week as a Yoga Instructor in Week 7, I met Henri. I remember he said to me: “When my students come into the class, Read More ››
