I’ve been busy working on my business Actually for the past 4 years, focused on a range of communication design services like, graphic design, web design, user experience, user interface, and fun event marketing and communication projects.
But for a few years I have wanted to start blogging on my personal site sharing info about spirituality, personal and professional growth, love, yoga, parenting and entrepreneurship.
My goal was to whip up a nice looking website with some personal info about me and chip away at projects I’m working on outside of Actually. I thought it would be another way to get to know people virtually with an online presence that shared my past work history and all the projects I get involved in locally outside of my business. I also wanted to write and publish content to help others in their entrepreneurial journey while serving a few of my other goals outside of Actually.
In 2011 I felt the urge to begin a yoga practice. The first thing I did was look for books. I did a lot of research on yoga, to discover there are several types of yoga, Hatha, Power, Vinyasa, Kundalini, Tantric, Bikram, and Yin. Is there more? Probably. I decided that I was interested in yoga for the apparent healing advantages and also for fitness. To be honest, I’m not sure what drew me to trying yoga. I didn’t know anyone who practiced it and it was a totally new thing for me. I found some books and decided that based on the descriptions Kundalini yoga and Power or Vinyasa yoga was to be my new learning challenge. So I watched a lot of videos and chose a style basically on the fluidness of the teacher, and if they had a soothing voice to them I chose Vinyasa Power Yoga. I ended up going with a 21 Day Yoga Challenge on DailyOM by Sadie Nardini. It’s pretty great and she’s written a book since.
Today I see the value in teaching. Today I have nothing but respect for teacher! I have had some tough teachers, some easy-going teachers, and some who were right in the middle. The most memorable teacher was tough on students because, I believe, he fully understood what it’s like to be a out there working in your desired field.
- Trust in life. Go with the flow, but be resilient. Trust that the universe is clearing the way for me when the time is right.
- Eat well. Sleep well. I am learning to nourish myself with spiritual food and believe I am satisfied and free.
- Evoke change and welcome the change.
- Love and accept myself as I am and where I am right now.
Share your happiness goals with me!
