Pushing it to the EDGE

You are the books you read, the films you watch, the music you listen to, the people you meet, the dreams you have, the conversations you engage in. You are what you take from these. You are the sound of the ocean, the breath of fresh air, the brightest light and the darkest corner. You are a collective of every experience you have had in your life. You are every single second of every single day. So drown yourself in a sea of knowledge and existence. Let the words run through your veins and let the colors fill your mind until there is nothing left to do but explode. There are no wrong answers. Inspiration is everything. Sit back, relax, and take it all in. Now, go out and create something.

—Jac Vanek

You are you. You are the sum of all your actions.

Intimacy takes work, trust, wounds, hurts, sculpting in the dark: and that takes time. It takes more than a single chance. Of course we can close the doors, at any second, when we know it just won’t work. But there are many opportunities if we had trusted a little longer, reset the tempo, and spoke up louder: it would’ve been okay. Bridges would be built. New stories are made. You find your hand closing around theirs. They begin to traverse the folds of your heart with ease, and they learn to say those things which give life, which give freedom, which grow dreams. Intimacy is formed out of stumbling, but further down the path: there is so much light, so much laughter, so many steps to the horizon together.

The #yogagirlchallenge is in full swing! Day 3 is tomorrow and the theme is Rise&Shine. What I want you to do is this: get up one hour earlier than you normally do. This is going to be a tough one for me personally because I am not a morning person by nature and love to sleep in. But giving yourself extra time in the morning is so valuable! I always feel so amazing when I make the effort to get up just as the sun is beginning to rise. No one is awake yet, it’s perfectly quiet and the sky is showing off that beautiful explosion of color that you only see when it transitions from night to day. Sunrises are magical, wherever you are. Sacred. 

Tomorrow, get up one hour earlier than you normally do and use that hour to set a beautiful tone for the day ahead. Start off by drinking a cup of hot water with the juice of half a lemon (cleansing the body after a long nights sleep) and take time to wake your body up slowly. I love to burn palo santo, light candles and cuddle with the dogs when no one else is up but me. Do something that nourishes your soul the second you get out of bed. Then - move your body! Go for a run! Walk your puppies! Exercise! Or better yet; why not use this special hour for your yoga and meditation practice to keep it in tune with the 21-day challenge? 

The first hour of the day can be beautiful and calming or it can be full of stress. Give yourself an extra hour to dedicate just for you and to make sure you have time to get ready with ease. After your yoga practice, set your intention for the day, read a book or the newspaper and prepare a special breakfast for your family. Make a feast! Nothing beats post-yoga breakfast. Keep your phone off until you’ve left the house and reserve the first part of the day for love☺️❤️ In our house mornings are sacred. I’m going to do my absolute best to get up earlier every day for the full challenge, even when we’re traveling. Are you with me? Choose a peaceful alarm for tomorrow, set it an hour early and let’s have a magical start of the day! Share a picture of our morning and don’t forget to tag @yoga_girl and #yogagirlchallenge 🙏

I have been home sick since Saturday. In between working from home, I have binge watched the series Fargo and 2
seasons of The Killing.

I have also shopped, created Pinterest boards, obtained bids for new plumbing, electrical, deck work and lastly, a master bedroom remodel.

I can multitask like a boss but I’m sick of this couch.

Also, what did people do while sick before NetFlix and Apple-TV? ~J

You will have bad times, but they will always wake you up to the stuff you weren’t paying attention to.

Do not ask your children
to strive for extraordinary lives.
Such striving may seem admirable,
but it is the way of foolishness.
Help them instead to find the wonder
and the marvel of an ordinary life.
Show them the joy of tasting
tomatoes, apples and pears.
Show them how to cry
when pets and people die.
Show them the infinite pleasure
in the touch of a hand.
And make the ordinary come alive for them.
The extraordinary will take care of itself.

So called ‘late-bloomers’ get a bad rap. Sometimes the people with the greatest potential often take the longest to find their path because their sensitivity is a double edged sword- it lives at the heart of their brilliance, but it also makes them more susceptible to life’s pains. Good thing we aren’t being penalized for handing in our purpose late. The soul doesn’t know a thing about deadlines.
