It’s official – I cheated…

Yup – I cheated.  On the sweet love of my life… Sure, we’ve been going through a rough patch lately – I’ve not been as committed or attentive as I used to be. There are days I’ve woken up and been like, Oh God, I’m so not into you right now and then felt stricken because I […]

Yoga progress and snotty noses

As promised in my last post, I have to update you guys on my yoga progress so here it is: there isn’t much. My  ideals of getting up earlier with that water spray plan failed.  The first morning I just got out of bed, switched off the alarm and crawled straight back in again.  Doh! I did […]

Snuggly Sleepy Yoga!

I posted on my blog recently about how I seemed to have lost my daily yoga routine, that is to say, my disciplined six-days-a-week Ashtanga yoga practice. When writing in this, I thought that I had reached the point where it was now time to settle down and return to my mat each morning, time […]

I Am Here For You

I am here for you, with you every moment of every day. Your every wish is my command (though my requests are rarely your wish.) However hard you push me I make every effort to keep up. No matter what you put into me I deal with it as best I can (though it irritates […]

Success, Failure and Gentle Forgiveness

I used to be someone who practiced Ashtanga Yoga in the traditional method six days a week – what I considered a real Ashtangi.  Just saying that makes me cringe a little but, well, it’s true.  Even though I had convinced myself otherwise, I was hyped up on a smug sense of superiority because I was doing it right […]

Living the Life you Love

  There are so many amazing things in my life that I can be grateful for it would take weeks to list them. Take any one of them away and I know I would be devastated. I am an extremely fortunate human being and yet still, my day-to-day life recently has been leaving me feeling empty […]

Bootilicious Yoga-Buns

The Ashtanga Primary Series is a phenomenal yoga practice.  It deepens your connection to the breath, opens up the back of the body as well as the hips and it focuses and calms the mind.  It’s a powerful journey of self-discovery.  As stated in the ancient text, the Baghvad Gita: “Yoga is a journey of […]

Resistance to your Art

It’s been too long, unbelievably eight months too long, since I last blogged about anything. Where did the time slip away to? How is it possible that in so many weeks and months I couldn’t sit my arse down at a computer and write something, anything?? Well, I recently read this book that pretty much […]

The 2016 Project: my little happiness-ritual

For Christmas, one of my brothers gifted me a small beautiful book called a Five Year Memory book.  On each page is the date of every day of the month from January through December, with five mini sections in which you are meant to write one interesting memory from that date over the course of […]

Seriously – what’s the rush??

An interesting thing happened when I was driving to work a few days ago.  It was about 9.30 am and I had been warned to leave early and go slow as the roads were icy. Then a car pulled out of a driveway ahead of me and I understood what real slow driving was. A lazy […]
