#Yogalosophy Journal Day 4

Be Grateful So today's chapter is about being grateful. I find this fitting seeing as I just wrote a blog about how meeting my kid's Xmas expectations is stressing me out. Gratitude is a funny thing. It's easy to say we should be grateful or happy with what we have but its in our nature... Continue Reading →

The Xmas Star of Pressure

I'm about as far from being a religious person as you can get so in our house Xmas is about family and friends and Santa Clause. Having such a huge day based mostly in materialistic gain can bare down a ton of pressure on parents, especially when one is a minimalist to begin with. And... Continue Reading →

Senses So this is actually for yesterday, I'm just having time to write it now. Yesterday was about listening to and appreciating your senses.

Dig Deep

It probably shouldn't take 34 years to realize you can't make changes to your appearance without making changes to your "self", but apparently it has. Finding happiness, acceptance and pride in who you are in the deepest sense and then embracing that is by far the greatest gift you can give yourself. No one else... Continue Reading →
