Every morning you have two choices: continue to sleep with your dreams or wake up and chase them. πŸ”₯
Consider me awake and chasing. Let’s do this! πŸ™ŒπŸ»

I can tell a lot about a person, by what they choose to see in me. πŸ€”
.
I used to try to hide my perceived negative qualities, but recently I’ve started actively practicing hanging it all out for everyone to see, the lovable and the challenging, and it’s so liberating, even when it feels scary. πŸ™ŒπŸ»
.
It’s amazing how much easier it is to connect with people when you stop trying so hard to make sure they think you’re perfect. πŸ˜‰
.
My ego still hopes you’ll only notice the lovable parts, but I’m quickly learning that the ones who are MY people, will notice the challenging parts of me too, and love me unconditionally anyway. πŸ€—
.
So, I’ll be right here, letting it all hang out, and the next move is yours. πŸ”₯πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ’—πŸ˜ƒ

In the past, even last year at the #aloinpalmsprings retreat, I spent a lot of time comparing myself to other people, and let me tell you: comparison really is the thief of joy. πŸ˜”
.
The @aloyoga family has grown substantially since last year, and had I spent this weekend comparing myself to everyone there, I would have been a mess. 🀯
.
Had I done that, I likely would have managed to find 100+ reasons to not feel good enough. πŸ˜”
.
My handstands aren’t as strong as hers. My body/face/whatever isn’t as pretty as hers. My personality isn’t as bubbly as hers. I’m too this. I’m not enough that. 🀯
.
Instead, last night I found myself excitedly telling @aubrymarie, about a new breakthrough I had: while all those comparative observations might be facts, for the first time, none of it mattered one bit, because, much to my surprise, I’m starting to finally feel it in my bones that I’m enough... no matter what qualities anyone else possesses. πŸ™πŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ»
.
Rather than feeling shy or insecure, I feel like I showed up as myself this weekend, in all of my flawed yet perfect glory, and I HAD A BLAST. πŸ˜ƒ
.
Unlike last year, when I shyly avoided people I didn’t already know well, I made new friends and realized I had missed out on connecting with a lot of epic people last year, because of my own insecurities. πŸ‘―β€β™€οΈ
.
I was nervous and a little intimidated going into the weekend, but I ended up surprising myself and connecting with 100+ yogis, who, each in their own right, are some of the most inspiring people that I have the pleasure to call my friends. πŸ€—
.
I know my insecurities will keep surfacing, and that my self work is far from done, but I think it’s important to be grateful for the moments, when you have a chance to realize that all that challenging self work you’ve been doing, is actually having a noticeable impact. πŸ™πŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ’—

I am a person who wants to do a lot of things, trapped in the body of a person who wants to sleep a lot. πŸ™ˆ
Waking up for this sunrise wasn’t easy for me, and I almost went back to sleep when my alarm went off, but man oh man, was it worth it. πŸ˜‰
As I sleepily took in these hypnotic colors, I couldn’t help but realize that the best moments in life, feel even better when you earn them by overcoming your own resistance to the experience. πŸ™ŒπŸ»
Wonder where else in my life this could apply? πŸ€”

Thanks @rivkaloha for capturing this moment! πŸ™πŸ»πŸ’—
Rocking @aloyoga like always 😍

Having such a blast with my @aloyoga family here in Palm Springs! πŸ€—
It might be 9000 degrees outside, but this pool is cool, and we’re not gonna let a little desert heat stop us from making the most of this retreat. β˜€οΈπŸ”₯
It’s been incredible getting to connect and reconnect with so many inspiring friends from near and far. πŸ‘―β€β™€οΈ
Is it weird that I already can’t wait until next year’s retreat?! πŸ˜‰

This morning, I woke up from a very stressful dream, and I was hyperventilating, almost crying (ok, I cried a little) and feeling very out of sorts. 😒
I had some complicated thoughts and feelings I needed to work through in my head, and I knew that if I didn’t work them out, they would impact more than just my dreams. 😬
I’m not sure why, but I have a huge aversion to the idea of journaling, even though when I’ve had short bursts of journaling daily, I’ve found it very cathartic and therapeutic. πŸ’†πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ
Well, that dream must have really rattled me, because for once I felt a hunger to journal about my life and what I was grappling with. πŸ€”
I almost talked myself out of it twice, but I went inside and grabbed my journal. Believe it or not, it only took me about 10 minutes to write it all down. It was 1 page, front and back. πŸ™ŒπŸ»
Once I wrote it all down, I could see that I had simply been repeating the same thoughts in different words in my head over and over again. There weren’t even as many issues to work through as it had seemed. πŸ™πŸ»
My journaling gave me perspective, released my stress, and helped me clarify my feelings...maybe there’s actually something to this. πŸ˜‰
Now, while it’s all fresh, and the feeling of freedom from my thoughts is strong, I’m sharing this post to remind you that JOURNALING ROCKS! πŸ™ŒπŸ»
It’s such a good way to clear your mind, quell anxiety, take stock of your life, feel more aware of your feelings and motivations, and more in control of your thoughts and decisions. πŸ’†πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ
Got an issue you’re grappling with? Trust me, journal about it. You’ll be glad you did. I know I am. πŸ’—
Happy Sunday. 😊

My books have been my friends since grade school, when I was lonely. πŸ‘―β€β™€οΈ
I used to have even more books than I do now, but I got rid of a bunch, because they were getting too heavy and beginning to feel like they were weighing down my life. πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ
I’ve read every one of these, and my life has been so enriched by them. πŸ€―πŸ™πŸ»
People always ask to borrow a book when they come over, and I usually say no, because I’ve lost a lot of beloved and rare books that way. 😒
If I do let them borrow a book, I make them leave me with a piece of collateral. Something they’ll really miss if they don’t get it back. 😩
I’ve made people leave jewelry before, to borrow a book. It made them nervous, but felt necessary to me. πŸ€“
I would be as sad to lose my book as you would be to lose your jewelry, so let’s both return them to each other post haste, I said. πŸ’πŸ“š
Not shockingly, I’ve gotten all of those books back. πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ˜‰
COMMENT and tell me: Do you like to read? What are some of your favorite books? πŸ€“πŸ“šπŸ’—

Society discourages us from tooting our own horns. Stay humble. Don’t brag, we’re told. πŸ˜‡
Humility is essential, yes, but so is taking pride in yourself and your choices. Humility and pride are opposite sides of the same coin. πŸ‘―β€β™€οΈ
No, I’m not going to start bragging all the time, but I am going to stop starting sentences with β€œnot to toot my own horn.” πŸ™…πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ
Fuck that. I’ll toot my own horn if I want to, because it plays beautiful music, and I worked hard to learn to play it. Besides, I love a good dance to my own tune. πŸ’ƒπŸΌ
I dare you to toot yours too, because it’s true. Even if I sometimes forget, I AM worthy of everything good in the world, and SO ARE YOU. πŸ”₯πŸ”₯
Now, go toot that beautiful horn of yours. You’ve worked hard to learn to play it, the world needs your music, and it’s time for you to start dancing to it. πŸ˜‰πŸ’ƒπŸΌπŸ•ΊπŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸ»

Maybe one day I’ll grow up and have a proper dining room, but for now I’m making the most of having no furniture. 😜
I yoga way more than I cook, so I turned my dining room into a yoga room, and I love it! πŸ§˜πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

New mantra: you can’t be committed to your bullshit and your growth. It’s one or the other. πŸ”₯
While I admittedly do sometimes commit to my own bullshit, I’m SO over getting in my own way. πŸ™…πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ
I’m ready to step into being more responsible (especially with paperwork, bills, taxes, and housework), and now that I’m focused, it’s happening in leaps and bounds. πŸ™πŸ»
I’m truly ready for the good things that are coming, and I have faith that it won’t be long before they arrive. πŸ˜ƒ
COMMENT β€œYES” if you’re committed to dropping the bullshit and stepping into your growth too. Bonus points if you list at least 1 thing you’re actively working on. πŸ™ŒπŸ»
Let’s do this! πŸ’ͺ🏻πŸ”₯

Happy birthday to this epic unicorn of a human being! πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‚πŸ¦„
@lifeinabeachtown you are one of the raddest, most hardcore, badass women that I’ve ever met, and I’m beyond grateful to call you my friend. πŸ‘―β€β™€οΈ
Don’t ever let self-doubt creep in and make you forget how fucking awesome you are...especially not today! πŸ™ŒπŸ»
If you have a minute, go show my girl some birthday love, and DEF hit her up to kayak, hang, and shoot pics if you’re ever on Kauai. πŸŽ‰
