The Wonder of Being Alone

A friend of mine posted this on his Instagram page. It was one of those quotes that spoke directly to my soul. I love people and enjoy social interaction so much. However, I love being alone just as much. Being alone is the time I regenerate. It is the way I heal myself. People laugh when I tell them I …

Jamaica Blues and the Christmas Flu

Don’t let the cute photos fool you, my trip to the Caribbean was anything but smooth. The waters were rough literally. I went on the trip to celebrate my mom’s birthday with her, my step dad and her friends. The first day at sea, I began my morning at ship’s impressive gym with good workout followed by a nice long …

Holiday Musings

I am getting ready to leave for Jamaica soon and am feeling reflective. I’ve only been back home a few weeks, and packing my suitcase feels both familiar and strange. This will be my last travel adventure of 2016 and what a year it has been. Traveling to India (2x), Vietnam, Mexico (2x), Costa Rica, London, Jamaica, Grand Cayman, and …

To date or not to date? That is the question.

So I have been thinking a lot about relationships lately. Before I left to explore India a year ago, I decided that I wanted to take a LONG break from even thinking about being in a relationship. I decided I wanted to work on my relationship with myself. Well, it has been a glorious year. For me personally, life is …

What am I really hungry for?

This past year has been a struggle when it comes to my weight. When I returned from my first yoga teacher training in February of 2015, I felt fit, healthy, and strong. Not long after my world turned upside down and I dealt with it by eating my feelings away. This is the behavior I turn to when I am …

New Hair for a New Adventure!

So I wanted to mark the end of one adventure (500 hours of yoga teacher training) and ready myself for another (2 months in India). I decided a good way to usher in this new chapter of life was to change my hair color.  I walked into the hair salon with one request, “I want to look like a golden …

Seasons of Life

I’ve come to the conclusion that I have a young spirit, an old soul, and a body that is fast approaching middle age. I used to love doing back bends, headstands, and handstands. Gone are the days of effortlessly throwing myself into the splits. I can still do the splits but only when I properly warm up my body. As …

Hello And Goodbye

Yesterday I graduated from the Awakened School of Life 200 hour yoga teacher training and tomorrow I will begin the 300 hour program. Today has been very emotional. I said goodbye to 25 new friends and tomorrow I will be saying hello to 15 new friends. Yoga teacher training isn’t just about practicing asana. It is about self analysis and …

Dear Diary

Let’s face it. My blog has become my diary. Most people like to keep their innermost thoughts private. I like to share mine. Why? There are so many reasons. Being vulnerable and transparent is like medicine to me. The more I release through my writing, the lighter I feel. I know from the feedback I get that my stories have …

Me Before You

   Today while I lounged beachside in Puerto Vallarta I consumed the book “Me Before You” in one sitting. The beautiful story made me cry so hard I could barely catch my breath. I was so thankful for those tears. While I laugh easily and a lot, tears don’t come easy for me. I love a good long cry more …
