Passion and Patience 

Good Afternoon! I have been racking my brain on what I should write about. Writer’s block is no joke and it’s been a struggle but I thought about the things that have been heavy on my mind lately and I realize that I’ve been frustrated that I’m not living the life of my dreams yet. I know what I want out of life and the work that it will take to get there but it’s been tough just wishing and hoping that things will work out. That’s when I have my “aha” moment as Oprah likes to call it. If I’m actually putting in the work, I won’t have time to think about what I don’t have and what I’m not getting out of life. In order for me to want to do the work, it has to be something I’m passionate about and something I’m willing to wait for because I know that it will come true in time. 

Passion and patience lead to greatness and I feel that both is needed for me to make all the visions on my vision board a reality. I can’t let pressure overwhelm me and as I stated in a previous post, I have to take things one day at a time. As long as I don’t lose sight of those goals and remain confident and excited about them, they will come to fruition. Every day is a new beginning so let this day be the start of something amazing! Be sure to keep me updated on your journey:) 

Always remember to love and live luxuriously!

Determination and Downward Facing Dog

downwardfacingdogIn my last post, I talked about doing yoga regularly because I felt that it would be good for my mental and physical well-being. I went to Yoga class this morning and it was much different from the last 2 classes I attended back in April. There are different types of Yoga and back in April, I tried Alignment Hatha Yoga which focuses on stretching poses mainly and while I was a bit tense, the poses weren’t that difficult. Since that type of yoga class was done for this session, I decided to use my 3 remaining classes and try a more vigorous type of Yoga called Vinyasa Yoga. This type of yoga required more movement and balance and the poses flowed into each other. I realized just how tense my muscles are and how I lack balance for the most part. I heard of the pose “Downward Facing Dog” but actually doing the pose back to back was work! I didn’t sweat in Alignment Yoga but today, the room felt like it was on fire! I always thought of Yoga to be relaxing which it was but it also makes you aware of your body and what you need to work on. My instructor was very nice and patient but I felt like I was the only one who required extra help multiple times throughout the class. Granted, it was my first Vinyasa class but I didn’t think I was so out of shape. Although I struggled throughout the class, I am glad that I went and I look forward to going back next week. In the meantime, I am going to look for some Vinyasa videos on YouTube so I can practice my downward facing dog along with a few other poses lol. I am determined to do Yoga throughout the summer and hopefully for the rest of the year because I love how aware and connected I am with my mind and body. My body may feel drained afterward but my spirit feels renewed and that feeling is priceless. If there is something that you find passion and purpose in, don’t give up when things get difficult. Nothing worth having comes easy so keep pushing through the pain (whether it be mental and/or physical) until you reach your goal! Much love to you all:)

Always remember to love and live luxuriously!

30 Days of Truth post Day 14: Something out of the ordinary that you would like to do in your life

We are one day away from the halfway point of the “30 Days of Truth” exercise and I know that it takes a lot for a person to be completely jump-2honest with themselves but I promise you that you will be a stronger and more determined individual because of it! I haven’t been posting my truths for the last few days because of some issues going on in my personal life but I will try my best to be as consistent as possible for the duration of the exercise. I decided to change a few of the questions this time around because I answered the original questions last year so instead of using the original day 14 question which is “A hero that has let you down”, I decided to create my own and talk about something out of the ordinary that I would like to do.
