Hey there! With the start of the new year I thought I’d say hello to some of my new people and introduce myself a bit. It’s incredible how I have come to know so many of you and I am so grateful for the tribe that has been created.
Some fun things about me:
1️⃣ I have a love affair with smashed-nosed dogs (pugs, Boston’s, bulldogs, boxers). I can’t help myself.
2️⃣ I hurts my heart to see others not valued for who they are, especially those with disabilities.
3️⃣ My favorite color is any shade of orange, I’ve even had an orange car! (I had a VW beetle with three little kids—what was I thinking?)
4️⃣ I collect crystals and if you came to my house, you’d find them everywhere (even in most of the window sills).
5️⃣ I can’t stand unloading the dishwasher but I love cleaning the kitchen floor 😳.
6️⃣ I have never in my adult life taken an overnight getaway alone (that is on my list of fun things this year).
7️⃣ I technically have four paid jobs that I juggle each day (I teach yoga and adaptive yoga, I teach wellness and essential oil education, I am a CNA for my daughter with special needs, I take care of my mom’s billing business) and I am always a mom to my girl. And, this year I will become a grandmother!
8️⃣ Being outside is imperative to my health. I walk outside 99.9% of the days. I can’t do frigid wind chill, but I am up for bundling up any time to walk. It’s where I connect.
9️⃣ About 14 years ago I decided that I was so done being overweight so I changed my habits, starting walking and eating better, healed my inner world and lost all the weight. At one point I weighed 100 pounds more than I do now.
🔟 I believe with all my heart that we are here to be of service to others. Whatever your passion is, I say use it to better the world.
Welcome to a new year, new opportunities, new friends and maybe even a new outlook!
It is my intention to write more in my blog this year and maybe even finish editing the book I wrote. You can follow my blogs to learn more about me and my yoga website is full of goodness, too.
Welcome to 2019! I feel like it’s gonna be a great year!
