I will shine bright.

  This week’s mantra is short, simple and to the point. Sometimes, that is exactly what we need. This past year has been a rollercoaster of emotions for us all. Trying to stay positive has often felt impossible and never really easy. This has been extremely challenging for me because I feel as though I am Read More

I will see options.

  So, it happened again, today’s mantra is inspired by some words of wisdom provided in an online class with Kathryn Budig. I know. I know. I should not be thinking about our mantras while practicing, but sometimes I just cannot help it. During a fun sweaty flow, Kathyrn said the following and it really Read More

I will look inward.

  We often spend time looking for the answers externally. We search, we ask others, we google, but most often the answers are within us.

Everything is going to be ok.

  I hope you are all well. This Northeast weather is kicking my butt this year. I am craving sunshine and warmth more than ever. And, I do not see any end in sight. I guess my hot baths with epsom salts will need to provide the best getaway I can get right now. Anyways, Read More

Learn to Rest, Not to Quit

  As you know, I often write down expressions, poems, thoughts that inspire me while reading, listening, doing… And, they always impact what I share with you here. This week is no exception.

I will be the light.

  So, here we are; we made it through the first month of 2021. Sometimes I see the light at the end of the tunnel and sometimes, I just see complete darkness. But, I am constantly looking and searching for that light. And, this month, what made my heart shine and happy tears roll down Read More
