Just taking some time today to relax and just be.

Living in the present is not an easy thing me! I'm a planner. A list maker. A worrier. An imaginer. I spend so much time putting together my vision for the future, that I often miss out on the NOW. I'm hoping that I can learn to just concentrate on the present without putting so much effort into planning for things that may or may not happen. I'm so afraid that I'm going to wake up one day and realize that I wasted all these great, young, tight years of my life worrying about being greater, younger and tighter, while I was actually perfect just the way I was, and it slipped away from me.

I'm going to use this (beautiful, sunny, amazing) long weekend to cherish the moments that I have right now, rather than stress about next week at work, or other foolish things that I have no control over. And really, you tell me which sounds like more fun?

Enjoy your time with loved ones and know that tomorrow will bring you exactly what you need.

Hi there,

So it's official. I've graduated from my RYT200 Yoga Teacher Training course!!! It feels so great to be finished, although if there's one thing that I've learned, it's that you're never really done learning... Already, I'm searching for my next course to take to increase my knowledge, and my creativity when it comes to teaching.

Luckily, I've been blessed with a few teaching opportunities already. I'm so happy about this, because it means that I've already got a bit of experience to help me on my way. I've been teaching 3 classes a week for a couple of months now, and it's helped me tremendously (especially with my nerves!). I'll have a bit of downtime this summer, and I'm really looking forward to working on my own practice, and making some big life decisions over the next 2 months.

I'm also super-excited about my upcoming trip to LA this summer! Going with the hubby, and planning to spend some time together just enjoying the view (literally and figuratively). I've already tracked down some yoga classes for us to attend, including a daily outdoor yoga class in Runyon Canyon, overlooking the city. There is also tons of great hiking and (obviously) beaches. We plan to explore, reflect, discover and reconnect. CAN. NOT. WAIT.

Hoping you all have some opportunities to enjoy the view this summer as well.
