One of the best things about yoga (if not THE best), is that after each practice, you really do grow and you really do transcend into a higher self. You become enlightened by your own abilities and the miracles of your amazing body. You learn, you discover a lot about yourself, and you gain a great deal of humility. When all of this radiates from ourselves, we put peace into our lives and into the lives of those around us.
matcha latte + yoga time.
Make me some and I’ll make you awesome kale chips? :D :D
BEFORE I CALL IT A NIGHT
1. Tumblr is like a treasure chest filled with books. I constantly find so many interesting lives on here. There are only so many hours in a day and sometimes, all I want to do is keep scrolling to the next page.
2. You’re beautiful.
3. The beau is studying so hard and I’m so proud of him.
4. I REALLY want some Vibram FiveFingers.
5. You are not your disorder. You are not any label that has been put on your name/record/body, so don’t feel sorry for yourself and don’t limit yourself just because someone said you have this and that.
6. Okay, just kidding…I’m gonna have some tea before I call it a night.
7. I’ve got two books to buy and I’m so excited! “Culture and Nursing Care” and “Meditations from the Mat”
8. Did you excite your warrior today?
I know I’m like twelve hours late, but this was breakfast :) Coconut and macadamia nut herbal tea with almond milk, and Ezekiel bread with avocado, paprika, and dried parsley :9 Mmmm, mmmm :9
My booface and I were at the Barnes and Noble café as usual, having our coffee and tea. It was a week or two into Christmas, so all tables and seats were completely occupied. I was lucky enough to find two tables put together. Yay! More room for my purse, my knitting bag, my phone, my receipt…all that space was unecessary, really :P Who doesn’t like more room for uh, stuff?! Anyhow, we were being our dorky selves (me snorting and laughing…seriously, I do) conversing about anything and everything, when I saw a tall, husky bald man with tattoos and a jersey walk in with his two kids. Engaged in my own storytelling and not even noticing the family looking around for a place to sit, I hear my man say, “You wanna take this table and some chairs, man?”
“Nah, man…it’s okay. You guys are using it.”
“It’s cool. It’s just the two of us, anyway.”
With a surprised look, the man then replies, “Wow…thanks, man. I appreciate it. I just wanted to find a seat so I can read my bible. Thank you, you don’t see that too often nowadays.”
And I threw the man a smile.
Being nice never hurts anybody and a simple gesture can go a long way. It’s never necessary to be mean and fill this world with more negativity. Everything is a cycle- if we contribute to the hurt, the pain, the suffering of the world, then we reap the same. We cannot complain about the anguish of the world if we do not start with ourselves. Open your heart, and acknowledge the light in everyone.
