Oof. I've felt challenged in so many ways the last couple days. Self doubt and negative thinking had crept in, and I was having a hard time keeping my cool with the kids as they were struggling themselves. It took more than the usual go-tos to find calm and peace. Yet, it always was in my control. Finding that calm, that deeper breath, letting go of the nagging feelings inside. Why does it build up so much sometimes where we feel it is outside of our control? What have I not been facing that is allowing it to fester out of control. Usually there is something deeper, making everything else feel more challenging. This morning I woke up with a deeper sense of what it was, and it was a few things. A combination of self doubt with running a business, the overwhelm of raising two children who are needing me so much right now, and that my body hasn't felt like me lately. What I need to do is slow down and be MORE present: with the kids, with my body, with everything. When I'm feeling overwhelmed, it's usually because my mind is elsewhere and not simply dealing with what is right in front of me right then.
So today I will take a walk, I will nourish my body, I will talk positively to myself. I will be present with the kids. I will breathe. I will continue this this weekend. We will explore nature, breathe fresh air. I will be present, I will give them my full attention.
I speak and think positively. I am here, right now.
yoga, food, family, and travel. these are what drive my life! as a stay at home mom of 2 little girls with an active yoga practice. i longed to find the perfect yoga class for my own children. i felt a calling to a kids yoga teacher training in early November, 2017 and answered the call. in 2018, i felt called towards a greater mission. teaching teens & adults. today, i am living my dream.
