My gram and gramps. I️ carry these photos with me always or have them on my makeup mirror so I️ can remember and feel their love, support and dedication to each other and to me. As I️ study for my finals this weekend to become a yoga teacher I️ reflect on all I️ have accomplished and I️ move with great enthusiasm and some fear both emotions I️ see in this photo toward becoming the best yoga teacher and healer I️ can be. And some how I️ stay connected to that little girl and know that with the practice I️ am regaining her strength, her belief in change and the desire and will to do it! #yogiinthemaking#yogasavedmylife#onthemat#pureyoga#ididit#youcantoo#changeisgood#changetheworld#healthylifestyle#itsachoice
Her smile says it all❤️ This right here, is one of the reasons I LOVE WHAT I DO!
Received this EXCITED selfie yesterday, from one of my ONLINE Garage Gang members. Sabrina Eckley is just halfway through her first month with me and is loving what she’s seeing and I couldn’t be happier for her.
Sabrina had reached out to me about my online program just a week before it had started. She was looking for more MOTIVATION and SUPPORT, to keep her interested /accountable with her workouts and to push herself harder. Also a change up in routine was desired. “The motivation for me is actually seeing results. If I don't start to see them soon then nothing motivates me to continue. Thankfully that ab video has helped a ton.” Though I reminded Sabrina, it’s her efforts and consistency as a whole, that is bringing those abs in. 😉
The photos above are about 2 weeks apart and the smile on her face, tells me she’s happy she joined my gang❤️💪🏻 With consistency and the desire to be better, YOU WILL SEE RESULTS! You have to be patient and you have to be willing to put in the time and conscious efforts.
Keep it up Gang! Next round of Garage Gang starts December 1st.
Wow, this article is so good. I think it’s kind of funny whenever scientists “discover” things about our brains and bodies, but God has already given us so many of these tools, just without all of the nitty gritty details. 🙂
Borrowing some wise words from a friend👇🏻 It takes about 15 POSITIVE thoughts to counter only ONE negative! Yikes! You're rewiring your brain by focusing on the negative! 🧠👎🏻 The advice I give to break the habit of being a Debbie Downer: 🌷Write down your favorite scripture or positive affirmation on a note card and carry with you all day to read and look at OFTEN! Every time you start to think negatively, read your notecard. It takes practice! 🌷Article at a glance:
Basically, if you keep your mind focused on criticism, worry, and victimization, your mind will find it more easy to bring up those same thoughts for similar situations. Our thought patterns wire our brains to react positively or negatively to the situations we are presented. We get good at what we practice, so why don’t we try being a little more positive? 🌷4 simple tricks to help: ✨Be grateful: Even for the smallest of things. ✨Catch yourself: Catch yourself in a complaint. Stop complaining. Congratulate yourself for being aware! ✨Make a new groove: We can create a brand new groove for pleasant feelings. The more often we allow our minds to remember the good stuff, the easier that kind of thinking becomes. ✨Practice wise effort: Wise effort is letting go of that which is not helpful and cultivating that which is skillful.
What are some ways that you practice positivity?

One of my favorite ways to study the Bible is by doing workbooks. It helps me so much to really meditate on Gods Word and give me encouragement and truth each and everyday. So much of the week I feel like I’m constantly doing something that I’ve honestly not been diligent in reading as much as I should be. My prayer is that this will help me slow down and be still before the One who deserves my everything.
I think there comes a point in your life when you're so content on being alone and working on yourself that when someone wants to enter your life you seriously have to ask yourself is it worth giving up this solitude.
Some might see that as a bad thing but I've worked hard to get to this point of peace in my life, to feel this confident with myself. Is that really such a bad thing? I don't like dating. I can't stand the small talk, the same questions over and over, the wasted time for little effort. I'd rather just meet people naturally and see where things go. Why is there such a rush to claim someone? I've rushed into it in the past and I always end up regretting it. Maybe it was them, maybe it was me, perhaps I'm scared to let people into my life completely or maybe they just weren't the ones. Either way I'm in no rush. I figure when it's the right time things will just flow and I'm okay waiting 💞
I hear so many people say "I'll start after the holidays, after I start exercising, after this... Why not start now, and get ahold of the problems before they start? Maybe you won't want all of those cookies or that 2nd serving of green bean casserole. Why not start now and start feeling better?
