    Lacking Inspiration?

    Have you been lacking inspiration lately? I know I’ve been struggling. I have a list of video and blog post ideas that I try constantly adding to, but I just haven’t had any new ideas in a while. And not for lack of trying! When I go through these phases I get tough on myself. I think back to college and how I was constantly producing work every day and question why I can’t do that now. Then I have to remind myself that creating was my only responsibility as…

    The Power of Words

    As a yoga teacher, I think a lot about words. When teaching I want to be direct and concise with my cues and say only as much as needed, no extra fluff. Admittedly, it’s a work in progress. Through my current training, I know I have plenty to improve upon. And it’s not just a problem in the yoga room. Whenever I tell stories my mom always tells me to “get to the point already.” I love details and feel the need to express every single one. But sometimes that…

    The Truth About Being Single

    Happy Valentine’s Day everyone. I am single this year yet again. I’ve been single for years now, going on a few dates here and there, but nothing more. Whenever I visit my grandparents or see distant relatives, I’m always asked, are you dating anyone? At a Christmas party this year I got asked if I had kids, then asked if I was married. I answered no with a smile and a bit of a chuckle and explained I was too young for that. I’ve been wanting to write about being…

    Acknowledge Each Other

    While I was flying back from LA on Saturday, I was scrolling through the “Movie” section on the little TV on the back of the seat in front of me. Nothing seemed entirely interesting to me, so I went over to the “Series” category hoping to find something to fill at least 1 hour of my flight. Through that, I discovered Delta has some TED Talks for viewing. I watched a few, but one has still stuck with me: Kio Stark’s “Why you should talk to strangers.” It’s about 12…

    Embracing My Femininity (& Lingerie)

    Last year I really dived deep into feminism. I read a lot of literature, listened to some amazing podcasts, and discovered inspiring bloggers. What interested me was the progression feminism has taken. So many of the strong, smart women I was loving had similar styles. They wore what they wanted (even pink), they liked taking time for themselves, they worked in a creative field, and many of them wrote/spoke about beauty and fashion. This revelation that you can be incredibly feminine and intelligent, successful, and empowered was a common thread…

    8 Things I Learned in 2016

    2016 was an interesting year for many. We elected someone that has a reality TV show as our next president. The UK voted to leave the EU. Violence in Aleppo escalated and not much was done to help. We lost a lot of great actors, writers, and musicians. Despite all of that, I personally had a pretty great year. I started this blog. I created my own YouTube channel. I signed up for and began my 300 hour teacher training in a place I love. I posted a video yesterday…

    Spreading Christmas Cheer

    Christmas is almost here! We are in the final stretch – only 5 days away! Like some of you, I am running around this week getting last minute presents. How does this always happen? I got 2 people done at the end of November and I was feeling on top of the world, but then I remembered how many more people I have to shop for. Oops! Despite how stressful these last few days might be, there’s something we can all do to alleviate some of it – spreading Christmas…

    Practicing Gratitude All Year Round

    With Thanksgiving just days away, we start thinking a lot about what we’re thankful for. Some families have the tradition of going around the table at Thanksgiving dinner and expressing their gratitude. While this is great and wonderful, why should we only do this once a year? Shouldn’t we be expressing our thanks all year round? I’m not going to lie, Thanksgiving is not one of my favorite holidays. Many people will disagree with me, but I don’t get excited about the food. But putting that aside, the days leading…
