Well, this was a first for me. I just took my own class. The one I taught last Saturday afternoon. To my surprise, it felt healing and loving to listen to myself. I have dozens of recorded classes and truth be told, I’ve only watched one (per TT homework).
Over the years, I have avoided listening to my own voice because I let the criticism of others creep in. I let a story play on repeat and I’m done. Today I say, “fuck other people’s noisy-ass-opinions” and dropped the story that was never my business anyway.

It’s time to drop what’s not yours, my friends. Let that shit go.

I love teaching at @momentomyoga because everyone is a hugger. This group is up for anything, warm with connection, fiercely-loving, and wonderfully-playful. They teach me every Tuesday morning. Thank you, MomentOm crew.

For the love of all things sweaty: soak/wash your stinky garments in vinegar. Please and thank you.

I just submitted for a modeling gig which means I need to pretty up this account a bit.

I remember when we didn’t need numbers for these gigs. It’s weird that these numbers matter so much. It’s especially weird that they matter when many accounts buy followers, purchase likes and pay for engagement.

Anyway, I’m doing it for the rent.

Is it on? Or in? I don’t know. What I do know is that it’s not here.

Project Ordinary Magic | Everyday Normal: AMANDA.

I’ve had this back burner idea for years to photograph people doing everyday normal things. My goal is to share the little moments in life that we may not always get to see. To me, photographing people has nothing to do with acting poised and posed. I don’t much care for people to act in front of my lens. I care that people feel comfortable enough to be themselves, camera or not.

I photographed Amanda two days ago, on a Sunday morning. Her pup, Jada, lay at my feet with occasional licks and excited pants whilst her mama doing her thing. Amanda lives the path of do no harm, take no shit. She’s smart, funny, and contagiously free in her expression. And one of my favorite people to bounce ideas off of and we let each other have bitch-fest vent sessions when needed. She’s also a grounded, knowledgeable yoga teacher and she’ll drop some bombs with her east coast charm. She teaches me.

Thank you, @_amandavdub, for being my first for this project and trusting me to see and capture you so freely.

You’ve got a few writing prompts coming your way in a bit. I’m working on filming these from time to time. It’s totally nerve-wracking to film myself and I’m doing it anyway.
The whole video will be dropped into your inbox. Grab your journal, sit up tall, and write your heart out.
