I’ve worked really hard to keep
up with dedicating time to create and stick to a daily task list all week. Trying to be more intentional
about how I block out my time and where I direct my energy. Today started earlier than I typically like, but thankfully I had the opportunity to spend time with wonderful and grateful people doing what I love.
4:30 AM wake up call
5:30 AM get on the road and drive to Chandler
7AM teach a private group yoga
8:30 AM quick breakfast
10 AM begin setting the stage for Feel Good Friday Facials with my IFYM crew
11:30 AM the fun begins
12:30 PM bust out the delicious meal that I prepared for these awesome peeps
1 PM unable to find my keys and proceeded to waste 20 minutes searching for them before realizing they were in the ignition in my locked car
1:30 PM get on the phone with AAA and super grateful for my friend Anthony and his soped up account that allowed me to have someone come and bail me out
2:05 PM my keys are freed 2:25PM back on the road and headed from Tempe back to Peoria
3:15 PM arrive at the groomer 75 min late to pick up my abandoned Shih Tzu
3:30 PM guzzle down a bottle of water and eat a protein bar while driving to the yoga studio to begin setting the space for my two afternoon classes.
7 PM headed home feeling blessed for the freedom I have, the abundance of opportunities to make personal connections with people I care about and ready to unplug and relax.
Was today a bit overwhelming? Yes. But it was also a great opportunity to learn from my mishaps and be a better and more organized version of myself tomorrow. #attitudeofgratitude#fridayfeels#mymklife#thisismylifeasayogateacher#svadhyaya#progressnotperfection#livethelifeyoulove#designyourlife#practiceselfcare
Every day you are faced with a choice as to how you are going to show up for yourself and others. I️ choose love, kindness, compassion, opportunities to feel uncomfortable. I️ choose to design my life in a way that gives me freedom and room to grow personally and professionally. I️ choose not to settle and accept people in my life who are toxic. I️ choose to create my own path to happiness. What do you choose?
Join me this morning for 9am Slow Flow and 10:30 Yoga Wall @santoshayogawellness and I️ just got an opening in my schedule this afternoon, so you you haven’t already tried my charcoal mask experience, I’d love to share it with you. Just call or text me. ✌🏼❤️👍🏼🕉📿
I am not a list maker. In fact, I really dislike to do lists. I think it stems from a fear of failing, because if I don’t check off al the items on my list, clearly I am a failure. At least that is what I have told myself for and long as I can remember, and who actually wants to feel like they have failed? And the funny thing is, I am surrounded by list makers...
What I have come to realize is that sometimes you have to do more than just think and pray for the things you want out of life, relationships, business, etc. You’ve got to write those things down and make a plan. When it’s written down you can break things down into smaller realistic goals to get you to your desired outcome.
This weekend I watched a comedy special with @tiffanyhaddish and let me tell you, I was so inspired by her story. She has come from the foster care system, survived an abusive marriage and being homeless. And the moment she started to write out what she wanted out of life, everything shifted. Her dreams started to manifest themselves almost immediately and today is killing it at life.
So, today is the day I break old patterns, release limiting beliefs and fear of failure. I will make a list and check off each completed task twice. And whatever does not get accomplished today will roll over to tomorrow’s list.
One of the things I love about being my own boss is the flexibility I have to block out time to volunteer. I’ll be spending a couple of hours this morning volunteering for the annual Dentistry From the Heart event at Fletcher Heights Dental Care. This early morning event leaves me with plenty of time to make gains in my business and prepare for my two evening yoga classes. And I didn’t have to request time off from a j-o-b, I simply have the flexibility to do things that matter to me. If you are tired of pouring all of your energy into a job that is not fulfilling your desire to do and be better, I’d love to sit down with you and share an opportunity that will allow you to discover what you love and make a positive impact on the lives of those around you.
Freeing ourselves from what others think about our exterior appearance leads us to create a healthier body, a happier mind and a more joyful spirit than we ever thought possible. Each persons idea of “pretty” is unique. We don’t owe it to anyone to conform to American society’s warped standards of beauty. The things that make YOU feel beautiful, confident, unique and intelligent may be different from mine. But, it doesn’t mean that I love you any less or that I am less worthy of your respect. If only more people would realize that what really defines a persons true beauty is what comes from deep within underneath all the layers of what they have been conditioned to believe.
So, in case no one has told you recently, I THINK YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL JUST THE WAY YOU ARE.
I’ll be working from home this morning while practicing some much needed self-care, or I hope you’ll consider joining me this evening for 4pm Yoga Wall, 5:30pm Restorative and 7pm Slow Flow. I’ll be the the giving heart hugs and sparkly smiles. #goloveyourself#morethanjustaprettyface#beautyisaninsidejob#attitudeofgratitude#yourvibeattractsyourtribe#girlbosslife#thisismylifeasayogateacher#mymklife#teammk
Here is your Monday morning reminder to be kind to yourself. We could all use more positive people in our lives. When people make an effort to really see you for who you are and not what you can do for them, it makes you feel valued.
When someone takes the time to listen and not just hear what you have to say, you feel that your thoughts matter. When you take an hour to spend with someone without them having to check their phone every 10 minutes, you feel that your time and presence is valued. If you find yourself having an extra hour or two on your hands, I’d love to spend it with you and share an experience that will hopefully leave you feeling good from the inside out. It’s a busy time of year, but you should never be too busy to take time for yourself. Call or message me and we’ll make a date. #mondayvibes#dowhatyoulove#attitudeofgratitude#designyourlife#discoverwhatyoulove#namasteandslay#mymklife#allin#teammk#thisismylifeasayogateacher#dreambig#experiencebliss#treatyoself
Ya’ll, it has been a hot minute since I have been up and at ‘em before sunrise. Taking advantage of the opportunity to bless some faBOOlous women with Halloween goodie bags while I’m at the Mayo Clinic with my mama for some appointments this morning. I just love an opportunity to tell someone how BOOtiful I think they are. 👻🎃❤️ #mymklife#teammk#allin#holidayhangouts#youaresobootifultome
Last Thursday I was blessed to spend my morning pampering these gorgeous women. It was a little tricky for me going back to the organization that I helped start and thought I would be with for my entire professional career. It has changed so much and has grown in size significantly. But the one thing that has remained constant is the pure goodness of the people they serve. It felt so good to see some familiar faces and receive giant heart hugs from some pretty awesome people I hadn’t seen in years. The best though, was walking into one of the program rooms and seeing my sweet Monique and not only having her recognize me but then coming up and giving me a hug with a giant smile on her face. If you’ve ever met her, you know this is kind of a big deal. Clearly the universe had different plans for me, but these amazing humans will forever hold a very special place in my heart. #beautyisaninsidejob#mymklife#teammk#morethanjustaprettyface#attitudeofgratitude#yougottashowuptogoup#paychecksoftheheart
