Women and Relationships

I know I know I have been quite absent lately. It has been a  busy and exciting year. I am enjoying my first year of marriage, my sister just got married and my best friend is getting married in Oct. Love is in there air. However;

So why is it that as women we have such a hard time loving each other? For a sex that is (and I know this is a stereo type that does not apply to all) loving, kinda, caring and compassionate; why do we tear each other down so much?

When another woman is in a toxic relationship or battling a health issue I see other women label them is negative, ostracize them and make them feel literally crazy. When did we stop build each other up and just start tearing each other down?

It breaks my heart! I recently met an amazing woman who has been going through some marital problems and image issues due to health issues. The other women around us with the exception of a few treated her like dirt. When she was upset she removed herself so that her mood would not affect others. Yet here we were with the bashing and blaming. Instead of supporting each other there was blaming others for their own actions. No responsibility.

Sadly this is why I and other people I know have a small group of female friends because the attitudes and destructive nature just become too much to bare. We all struggle and we all have issues, but why can we not be there for each other through it all rather than make it worse?

Seriously people! Where is the love?

Gratitude can brighten a day

I think it is so important to show gratitude to those around you. The people who may not realize how much of a difference they make in your life.

It can be family, friends, yoga instructors, checkers all kinds of people. If you just take a moment to stop and share your gratitude you can brighten a persons day.

So take a moment next time you feel grateful to someone and let them know!

Calm, Focus, Clarity….New Beginning

I have been quite absent on here and am hoping to remedy the situation. I am starting a 60 day yoga challenge at my yoga studio on March 24th 2017. I will be blogging to keep an account of my yogi experience. As I am recently engaged I am hoping that this challenge will not only help me in my weight loss goal but will help me find a deeper understanding of myself as a person. I am planning to reset my mind and absorb everything that this experience can offer, including my sense of calm and focus. I would also like to find a deeper sense of meditation clarity an analyze my mind and bodies response.

The classes I will be taking as part of this challenge are: Yoga Nidra (guided mediation class 60min), YIN (non heated deep stretching 60/90min), Inferno Hot Pilates (High intensity low impact interval at 95 degrees 60min) and Bikram (26 postures x 2 sets each 105 degrees, 90 min).

I am very excited to start this journey and hope you all enjoy hearing about my progress.

~Namaste

And Life Happens

I did not finish my A to Z but plan on putting up a post soon to conclude in a single entry.

Between my boss going back to the hospital and passing away after a 5 year battle with cancer and my Hawaiian vacation the blog quickly took a backseat.

That said I am hoping to get back on track shortly.

R-Rest

rRemember to rest. We are always so busy with social plans, work, family and relationships sometimes we forget to just take a break. I personally enjoy a little nap on my weekend. A brief recharge if you will. If you don’t rest you will eventually burn out.

Q-Quiet

I am a day behind but I am catching up and will schedule some ahead so it doesn’t happen again.

q

Who doesn’t love a little peace and quiet? I personally enjoy my quiet time. It gives me a empty space to think, feel and just be without any external stimulus. Some people hate quiet moments in a conversation or around people. One of my favorite things about my significant other is that we can sit together in complete silence and be perfectly happy.

How about you?

P-Pressure

p

Life is full of pressures. Work, family and friends to name a few. I personally have a hard time not letting the pressures of life get to me. But if I take a minute and breathe it helps bring the important things to the surface and the superficial things slip away. I am not saying important things wont have pressure but it is important to focus on what we can do instead of worrying about things we can’t do or change.
