the yoga love

on the mat is a state of mind

Note to Self: Don't go looking for trouble.

It will find you eventually, so sit tight and stay ready.

Something I say a lot: Things change. People come and go. Life moves on (if you let it).

Keep;ing up wtih my ex on facebook probably isn’t such a good idea, but I have finally realized that he is no longer the person I dated when we were twenty two. We are both different now. His new girl is the right person for him and hopefully, he for her, and just because I haven’t found my person yet doesn’t mean that a) I’m less happy than they are. b) there’s no one out there for me or c) that anything happening to them has anything to do with me. They have their life, I have mine. Separate. I can choose to be happy for them, or I can not. Just as I can choose to be happy for myself, or I can not.

I have my own business. I have great friends. I have a sweet dog and a loving family. I have plenty to be happy about.

I’m also about to load up my car and head to the mountains for the weekend to hang with my friends, and THAT definitely = Happy.

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." — Elizabeth Gilbert
