Afraid.

blog, lifestyle, meditation, yoga, mom

My baby is one month old today. Already! I can’t even believe it. She was wide awake all day with me, so naturally we cuddled all day. Anyways. Last night after I put her to bed, I spent a lot of time meditating and gathering my thoughts. I’m about to take another huge leap in my life, and even though I’m excited beyond what words can describe, I’m also afraid. It’s not even that I’m afraid of new things, or of change. I’ve always lived in a life of constant change. This is somehow different. I’m afraid of going after what I’ve wanted for eight years because it’s the first thing that I’ve ever done just for me.

Five Easy Relaxation Ideas.

Free Spirit Babe // 5 Easy Relaxation Ideas

Lately I’ve been starting to feel a little overwhelmed from everything going on for me. Within a four week period I have finals, college graduation, training my replacement at work and will be having my baby girl. That’s a lot of really big events, especially considering my pregnancy is making me just want to lay on my heating pad, do yoga and organize my house like a crazy woman! (I also want to work out so bad I can taste it, but of course that’s not allowed for me right now!) Even though I still do yoga every night before bed, I’ve realized that with all of the other things running through my mind, I’m not spending enough time on me! If you’re ever feeling stressed and low on time, here’s a few relaxation ideas that will help you bring yourself back to a peaceful inner balance. Continue reading

Yoga Thoughts: On Human Rights.

Free Spirit Babe // Yoga Thoughts: On Human Rights.

So far this weekend I’ve been laboring away at my designs for Peace Apparel Company which I plan on re-launching in the next couple of weeks. I was so excited to post about it tonight, because it’s such an accomplishment to me that I’m breaking past what I used to consider reasons I couldn’t accomplish this particular dream. But after finishing watching the documentary Half the Sky, I was bothered. And in my meditation tonight, I realized I have a bigger purpose and a bigger mission – we all do. So Peace Apparel Company is now also going to focus even more strongly on giving back than I’d originally planned.   Continue reading

When You Can’t, You Still Can.

Lately it’s been difficult for me to do a lot of the physical work that I like to do. I have temporary health conditions and am getting too far into my pregnancy for me to be able to safely lift or do extended periods of cardio at Lifetime, so I haven’t been there nearly as much as I wish I could be and it’s making me restless. These same conditions are restricting the length of time I can sit at my sewing machine as well, so I haven’t been able to do as much of my crafting.

Is this a reason for me to just take a break from my health, art and crafting that I so badly want to turn into my lifestyle?
Absolutely not. Continue reading
