Vancouver Island, Canada
Heron’s Spot (by fesign)
We have been having serious conversations about moving to Vancouver together in a couple of years. Next month (2 weeks) we will have been together for a year. I honestly think I found my soul mate. He’s a pest, a lover, a FRIEND, a comedian, an encourager, a soft place to land, a steam engine, a hippie, a humanitarian, a film maker, a realist, a dreamer, the hardest worker, a family man, a sportsman, an outdoorsman, a tech geek, he has so many masks and roles he can play. Most of all he’s my best friend and he loves me. He makes me feel safe, valued and appreciated.
These pain meds are making me all gushy. Sorry guys
we are born flexible. our hearts open, our minds ready to receive. as we grow, our bodies change, tighten with the stress of living, our hearts sometimes harden, our minds sometimes close. we forget that we are in this together. we are connected. to each other and to the world. on the mat as i deepen my practice, i learn to let go. as i breathe into the space between my bones and feel my muscles relax, i find new openness. in the stillness of each posture and in the motion in between, my heart softens, my mind expands. and as i allow the light to shine from within me, it has a chance to light up the world.
Had my wisdom teeth extracted yesterday and I’m feeling pretty good but I haven’t slept but maybe three hours scattered out here and there. Both of my bottom teeth were impacted and my left tooth was particularly difficult. I am actually very tired as you could imagine. Anyone experience this after this surgery? Any suggestions? Thanks :)
Hope all my followers are doing well and have a great week.
locli0ness23 asked: Hi I loveeeeeee ur page so much and u have really inspired me 😊. I was wondering what steps did u take to achieve hanumanasana (splits lol)? And how long did it take to get there?
Hello!! I have not forgotten about your question here. I will make a short video soon just for you and hanumanasana!!
illthinktothat asked: Awww thanks for the message! And don't dogs really make the best yoga buddies? My pup often falls asleep when I'm practicing but her snores remind me to breathe! Hope all is well with you :)
YES! I just read a great article about how our pets, dogs in particular, love our home practice because they feed off of our energy. Hera likes to lay at the top of my mat while I practice :D The snoring thing is so great!! Such a funny reminder. Thanks for the well wishes!
I walk outside on my back porch and I can watch my dog hunt wild long tailed gerbil things. I can watch two woodpeckers courting one another and I can hear the hawk flying by a block or so over. It’s pretty much always Tshirt weather. Best of all, I get to share this spot with an amazing person. Outside of our little home we have amazing friends, and family who love and support us. As I sip my diesel fuel coffee this morning I’m reminded of life’s beauty and I am thankful to be able to take time to witness and appreciate it all. Sending everyone extra love today.
Great people do things before they’re ready. They do things before they know they can do it. And by doing it, they’re proven right. Because, I think there’s something inside of you—and inside of all of us—when we see something and we think, “I think I can do it, I think I can do it. But I’m afraid to.” Bridging that gap, doing what you’re afraid of, getting out of your comfort zone, taking risks like that—THAT is what life is. And I think you might be really good. You might find out something about yourself that’s special. And if you’re not good, who cares? You tried something. Now you know something about yourself. Now you know. A mystery is solved. So, I think you should just give it a try. Just inch yourself out of that back line. Step into life. Courage. Risks. Yes. Go. Now.
These past few weeks have been the hardest weeks in my life. I am thankful for my yoga manual, my amazing rock (bf), my friends and especially my mother.
When the going get’s tough, keep going. There’s a rainbow at the end of the storm.
Teaching tonight, I don’t know how I’ll muster the strength but I know it’s in me. We’re all human. I hope my students will share their positive energies with me tonight, the always do but I really need it tonight. As humans I think we instinctively know these things. They will share their goodwill. I know it :)
