Happy Monday, friends! I hope everyone had a good weekend. I got back into the swing of things with yoga teacher training after a 2 week break for the holidays and it was so nice to pick up right where we left off, but it’s crazy to think we are pushing the final half of training! I even scheduled my practical exam which is INSANE to think about!
Anyway, I thought I would keep things relatively light today with a little catch up “currently” style post. I’m going to share some great books with you later in the week that you’re going to want to add to your reading list, so come back on Thursday for that. 😉
It’s hard to believe that the new year is here. To be expected, 2017 was full of ups and downs, though I’m so pleased and thankful that there are so many beautiful, fun, and exciting moments that overpower a lot of the negative ones, and I am really excited to see how 2018 stacks up and brings even more great things!
To be expected, a new year brings about a lot of reflection from the year past and planning and dreaming for the year ahead. While I’ll save you from the onslaught of thoughts that have been swirling in my mind the last few days (and weeks), I am a goal-oriented individual and as an obliger, I know the importance of sharing my goals with others as a form of accountability.
Obviously yoga has become a huge part of my life. I’ve been practicing off and on for over 8 years, and even in my moments away, I knew it was something special. It’s crazy to think we are several weeks into yoga teacher training. We have covered a lot of ground, we are getting more and more comfortable teaching each other, and I even filmed a couple short flows (including with me teaching) for my job last week(!!).
It’s crazy to think Christmas is only a few weeks away. While my tree and decorations are up, I haven’t really been thinking too much about it. I’m sure that sounds terrible and it doesn’t mean I’m feeling like a Scrooge, but rather life has kept me side tracked. Between the busy season at work, teacher training, and also trying to have a social life, time is slipping by. I know we all can relate though, despite what our schedules may look like.
With that said, I was caught off guard when my mom emailed and asked for Christmas lists last week. Oops! While I feel so blessed and that my main needs are covered, I thought I would check in today with a few of the fun ideas from my own gift wish list. They just may give you a few ideas for anyone left on your list of gifts to buy, especially if they enjoy being active like me.
