Sometimes the biggest life transformations come from the most unexpected gifts in jumping into the unknown. If you would’ve told me 7 years ago that my life would be fulfilling as a mother, yoga teacher, photographer, and writer I would not have believed you.

The Sea Within

We are always being guided. Always. There is a voice that doesn’t necessarily have a language, rather, a deep knowing truth that lands within our bones. One of my favorite words to describe this inner-knowing is InnSæi, an ancient Icelandic word for intuition.

Community Is Everything To Me Right Now

In June, I completed another yoga teacher training. The training was held at the studio that introduced me to my very first practice. Going through this program felt a little “full circle” for me. I feel an attachment to this place, even before signing up for their teacher training.

Your life is always on time. This has become a mantra for me: my life is always on time.Sometimes life knocks the wind right out of us. Maybe a relationship has ended. Or the job situation didn't pan out. Maybe it feels like life is dropping bombs left and right.

I often journal after a meditation. It is something I've been practicing since teacher training.

Worthiness

Worthiness does not come in a box — I have never been one for the gifts in the material. My sentimental cannot be wrapped in the perfected gift basket or thoughtful transaction.

Let Go and Let In

Those 5 words trickle in often for me as of late. I feel as though my life is in one big transition right now. It’s funny to think of it in terms as though transitions only happen behind us. They’re actually always in motion, because the truth, our truths are always changing.
