@handmdskincare. If the eyes are the windows to our souls, what do the hands tell us? .
If you’re like me, you’re always using your hands. From the moment a student walks into the studio, my hands are busy making connections: welcoming, modeling, assisting, guiding, supporting & celebrating. I found this new hand rehydration cream by @handmdskincare that I’m trying out this week. I want my hands to look & feel vibrant and healthy! Stay tuned. I’ll let you know what changes I notice...
What is it that really moves you? No, I mean REALLY moves you.....being outdoors, exploring new places, being with people whom you know really have your back, catching up with old friends or maybe just being around a lot of people. Is it soothing music or a good beat? Waking up early to watch the sunrise or sleeping in....a good book or movie with a great plot, or a delicious meal? Whatever it is for you, work more of THAT into your life! Schedule it. We won’t get to the end of our lives wishing we worked longer hours. Work hard, but make those special moments numerous & make them COUNT! . Funny thing, when we plan vacations & special moments into our schedules, usually the days leading up to them & the days following them are super-charged focus days. We get more done in less time. So instead of stumbling into those moments, put them in the calendar! #worksmartplayhard

. We write the stories of our lives daily...with every thought, every dream, every action & every person we interact with. In a sense, we are the stars of our own story, but we are also the directors, producers & writers. . What is your story going to look like? How will what you do today effect the next chapter and the next...? Knowing your desired outcome is always the best way to approach even the small things: how we spend our time & money, the words we use & how we deliver them, the way we treat our own bodies & the information we feed our brains. . Take a moment this weekend to think through your desired outcome & see what changes result in your behavior. A decided heart is more powerful than most circumstances that threaten to throw you off course.
What if we concentrated on the possibilities instead of the obstacles? . If you were guaranteed NOT to fail, what would you do differently? . Tag a friend who needs a little encouragement. We fail every time we neglect to try!
It’s not good intentions that get you where you want to go. It’s what you DO with your intentions. . This applies to all areas of our lives. If the goal is to be better at yoga, make more money, have stronger relationships, be a better parent or anything else, ask yourself if you are truly taking the steps to get you from point A to point B. Desire & a pure heart are not enough. Effort, focus, action....These things will move you along towards actualizing your dreams.
Once I accepted that perfection was the goal but rarely an attainable destination, I began to enjoy the journey more. Mind you, I’m always working to improve...just having a little more fun along the way!
Our successes are achieved one day at a time. Every failure, every road block, every victory has a role in guiding us along the path to our greatest accomplishments. How we maneuver through them determines the pace and efficiency of the journey.
