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

Sunday Yoga Thoughts.

Free Spirit Babe // Sunday Yoga Thoughts

I’ve been incorporated yoga more and more into my days as I get further along with my pregnancy. Yoga along with my heat pad has done wonders in curing my back pains. Of course I can’t do the full extent of each pose as I normally am able – that just comes with having a growing belly! But today I really got to thinking, yoga has positively impacted so many different pieces of my life, so naturally I want to share those pieces with you! Continue reading

Needing a Boss vs. Being the Boss.

Free Spirit Babe // Needing vs. Being the Boss

We are all different. We all have different dreams, different values, different priorities. Everything we look at, we see differently from those around us. Psychologically speaking, everything we see and understand is partially objective raw data, but also partially formed through our brain’s interpretation based on our own biases that we can’t even control. Crazy isn’t it? Well – we all have different working styles as well.

I talk all the time about how I’m following my dreams to entrepreneurship in a creative and healthy manner, but that doesn’t mean entrepreneurship is for everyone! Sure, there are a lot of people in the corporate world who really don’t fit there but don’t know how to get out, but otherwise there are many who do fit there because of their values on routines, following direction and low risk environments. Neither is wrong, but this post might help you decide which side you fall on (although it’s likely you already have a good idea of which position better suits you!). Continue reading
