Optimists Rule!

Something to think about today…

The World of Achievement has Always Belonged to the Optimist

It’s always easier to be negative, but lets look on the positive side of things today and be optimistic about the future.  We may even bring about positive change in the life of someone else too.

Words of Inspiration

I often come upon beautiful inspirational thoughts. Sometimes I write them down to remember for later, but often they are written on random scraps of paper never to be found again.  I  decided to include inspirational thoughts as part of this blog and share them here in under their own heading so that we can refer back to them when we need a little inspiration.  Feel free to comment with words or phrases that you find inspirational and I’ll add them so we can share the joy.  Here is one for today:

“There’s a sunrise and a sunset every single day, and they’re absolutely free. 

Don’t miss so many of them.” 

Embrace Today

Embrace Today

Forget about Yesterday

Have Faith in Tomorrow

Quick and Easy Lunch

I was busy and didn’t think I had time to make myself lunch then I came up with this. Whole wheat pita, avocado, black beans and salsa–fast, healthy and GOOD!

200 Hours

I just finished a 200 hour Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training program with a group of really terrific students and teachers.  The classes taught us how to design and lead a creative and safe Vinyasa yoga class.  

We also learned about yoga anatomy and physiology,  breathing and meditation techniques,  as well as the history of yoga and about the different styles we have today–Bikram, Iyengar, Ashtanga, Hot Yoga, Kundalini, Yin Yoga and of course Vinyasa.

Even more importantly, I learned a lot about myself.  I learned to be more accepting of things as they are – How to take things in stride; to not obsess over the past or worry about the future.  I am learning to live in ther present moment.  I learned (finally) to forgive a long ago hurt, and I am  learning to let the future unfold as it will without attempting to control every detail.  My new motto is,

Embrace the Uncertainty.

The future is certainly uncertain, and I am enjoying the freedom of letting go of my attempt to control events and giving it up to a higher power, I know that everything will work out not, necessarily as I had planned, but for the best.
