7 Reasons You Should Try Yoga This Year

Are you as excited about all the new discoveries this year as I am? Why not try yoga? Jump start your health!

The Hudsucker

The start of the year is a popular time for many of us to try and begin life changes, especially ones involving health. Whether it’s feeling over fed and under exercised after the holidays, the illusion of a fresh start from the new year, or a combination of both, healthy living gets a lot of attention this time of year. If you committed to making a change this year, the addition of a yoga practice is a great start that will help out in ways you might not realize. I started doing yoga six years ago and what originally began as “just another form of exercise” has morphed and grown into a full blown practice that influences and supports what I do off my mat. There are many reasons to do practice yoga that go beyond what you might think about when you think about yoga.

the best hint I could ever give you

Happy Tuesday Everyone!  Sorry I’ve been so busy and haven’t taken time out to chat.  Today’s post will hopefully light a fire out there in someone.  The best hint to achieve your goals in life is simple.  You ready?  You might not like it, but you gotta do it yourself. What am I talking about?  I’m talking about with any goal, if you want it done you have get out of your seat and make it happen.  This year is all about discovering new possibilities and the only way to achieve that is to dig deep, do the research needed, plan it out, and DO IT! Quit feeling sorry for yourself because you didn’t get the promotion, or maybe you didn’t an opportunity that you’d hoped for.  Really process WHY you didn’t get it and research what you could have done differently.  Maybe your goal is to lose weight this year.  ASK yourself if you are really doing everything you can to achieve your goal? Stop thinking in terms of IF and start thinking in terms of WHEN.  RESEARCH all of your options to achieve your goals.  Realistically PLAN out your goals. STOP thinking negatively.  Find like-minded individuals who have common goals set. Having a support team around you is wonderful, but only YOU can make your goals happen.  Keep in mind that no one owes you anything. A support team is built to motivate each other, but you have to MOTIVATE yourself and dig deep. So what’s holding you back? As my husband always tells me, “there’s nothing holding you back but wind and opportunity. Here’s your wind.”

I know you can make great things happen WHEN you want to.

Happy Tuesday Everyone!

April

Embrace It…You’re The Co-Pilot

Whoa, it’s a cold morning here in Kentucky.  Thankful I’m off today and can stay in and cuddled up on my couch.  We are now seven days into 2015 and I find myself really embracing the blogging community.  I’m very thankful for the life I have and that I not only share it with my wonderful husband, but also with God.  I encourage you to read this blog post today from Thoughts About God.  It really hits the nail on the head with someone who thought they were in control of their own life.  Embrace the fact that you don’t have all the answers and trust God.

Have a Blessed Morning,

April

14 Reasons To Keep Up Your Kindness

Vincent Egoro said it best! Be KIND!

Vincent Egoro

Do we really need a reason to show kindness unto others? I don’t think so. But whether you do, or you don’t here are 14 quotes to motivate you into being more kind this month.

  1. Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up –Galatians 6:9
  2. You never know how much of an impact a simple act of kindness may have on someone.
  3. No act of kindness, no matter how small is ever wasted.
  4. A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees.
  5. The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the grandest intention.
  6. When you give from the heart, you touch the heart of another, more so, you touch the heart of God with your kindness.
  7. An act of kindness

Fifty-Two Weeks of Adventure Link-Up: Adventure #1

This might be the coolest thing I’ve read all day. I’m feeling inspired! Why shouldn’t we live life to the fullest?

Such Small Hands

Over the weekend I discovered Brenda’s blog Embark: Fifty-Two Weeks of Adventure. Brenda invites readers to join her on fifty-two weeks of adventures for 2015.

Embark with me as I take fifty-two adventures and re-discover the joy of ordinary life being lived to its fullest.

I challenge you to find a way to learn, to grow, to care and to breathe, each day, for fifty-two weeks. Nourish your mind, soul, heart and body. And each week, go on an adventure. “

Seriously?! An adventure EVERY WEEK FOR A YEAR?! How will I contain the awesome?!?! I don’t think I have the words for how excited this made me. Maybe this picture will help explain it:

Needless to say, challenge accepted, Brenda. Challenge Accepted!

I will be posting here once a week (probably on Mondays or Tuesdays) about that week’s adventure. The cool thing about this challenge is that nobody decides what counts as…
