Life always feels like its passing by each moment at a time. We as humans drift from one fleeting moment to the next and forget to stop and be present. Yoga was the only thing that taught me to be in the here and now. It is the one thing I know that the moment I am on that mat, there is no past and no future. All previous thoughts I had before the class drift away and it opens me up to the possibilities of being me. I then begin to feel each moment. From my toes cracking on the floor to my hamstrings stretching in pain, I am there 100%. The moment class ends, life again starts rushing by at the speed of light. Its as if during class a pause button gets pressed and people are allowed to see how they are feeling. Yoga has taught me to be present and I believe that is one of the most important things you can be in life. Our day to day is always going to rush by whether it is routine or a special night out, it will rush by and end. For those who feel like their life is rushing by one moment at a time, yoga may be the answer you are looking for.

Respond to Every Call That Excites Your Spirit
I love this quote so much ! Just think of how many things there are that make you happy. What excites you? Never ignore these calls that excite you, they are telling you what your heart truly wants. Follow them and see where they take you. You may be surprised what waits for you at the end of the rainbow.
Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.
Life is too short to be anything but loving. Share your love with everyone around you at all times. I want to look back on my life and know that I was a loving person and a joy to be around. Why Hate ? Stop your hating now ! Be happy, good things come to good people. Share the love 🙂
“It’s hard to beat a person who never gives up.”
― Babe Ruth
Never give up! Keep fighting for what you want. Once you get there it will be worth the battle!
Today I feel extremely tired and lazy; it could be due to the fact that the weather is not very nice outside or that I need to be on vacation ASAP. Vancouver is a lovely place to live but the biggest downside is that it rains a lot. For me this is not only depressing it almost makes it unbearable to live here. I have been thinking all day about being on a warm beach in the sunshine drinking a delicious fruit smoothie. So today for Friday Faves, I thought it would be suitable to talk about the beach. One of my most favorite things on this planet is by far the beach. Warm sand beneath your feet, the ocean so refreshing, if I could I would live on a beach. To me being on a beach lying in the sun is true bliss. I shouldn’t complain too much because in exactly 10 days I will be jetting off to Maui. My goal is to master paddle boarding and surfing, this could be quite a struggle considering surfing is one of the hardest sports I have ever tried. In conclusion, whatever your bliss may be, don’t be afraid to take a break from your busy life to live it. Live where your heart is warm and be with the people that light up your life.
Life’s a Wave….. Catch it!
