on the mat is a state of mind

Am I in the mood for Evil? …. or Pie?

As Fall sets in, I am reminded of how much I crave balance. It’s getting colder and everything is beginning to hunker down for winter, and yet, I feel like I am pushing myself farther out, and there is an odd conflict there. I know that I have to be exposed in order for my business to succeed, I cannot hide and just hope that things take off without me. However, there has to be another side, the ‘rest’ so-to-speak – that being ‘all that is else’ and also ‘the reprieve.’ I find that I’m taking that space for myself out of my personal life. There is work, and there are naps, and there is pie and episodes of my favorite shows waiting for me in iTunes. There are patients and interviews and networking and lectures. There is balance. There is time to take it all in, and that’s all I need.

more downward dog, less downward spiral

Smile, be happy!

"Happiness is the consequence of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestations of your own blessings. And once you have achieved a state of happiness, you must never become lax about maintaining it. You must make a mighty effort to keep swimming upward into that happiness forever, to stay afloat on top of it." β€” Elizabeth Gilbert
