monday motivation

I once read “The secret of your success is found in your daily routine.” To me this was important to read. Being fit and healthy doesn’t just mean going to the gym 6 times a week for an hour or two a day. Being fit and healthy can mean waking up early to eat a balanced breakfast, walking with friends, swimming, running, hiking, dancing, yoga. To be happy with your journey finding something you love and finding balance is major key. Listen to your body and find something you love and that makes you happy. Once you find that, then strive to make it a routine. You do not have to go to a gym to be “fit.” Listen to your body and love what you do.

So I finally decided to add a face to my blog. I don’t really know why I didn’t before - the fitblr community is all about connecting with other people and supporting each other and I don’t really feel that I can do that if my avi is some random picture from google.

I’m proud of myself that I’m doing this, and getting myself into a more healthy lifestyle and better shape. I’m going to post progress pictures, and I don’t care if I don’t like how I look now. If people I know see them. Because soon, that’ll be how I used to look. 

So.. hi. Nice to ‘meet’ you :)

Mastering yoga takes time….In the beginning I wanted too much too soon…I ended up hurting myself. You need to let your body tell you when.. Let your body guide you.  Hard work and discipline really pay off. Yoga is also about meditation. Reflecting about your life, your growth.  Its about self forgiveness and loving yourself.

I’m a woman who runs with the wolves..They represent so much of how I feel, Of what I want in life. Duality…Following your heart, gut and female intuition. Soft, wholesome girl and the wild passionate women inside..Play and love. Instinct and challenge. Home and adventure. First, I want to be able to not only live, but thrive, on my own and with someone. Being alone has a way of guiding you to those creaky, cobwebby, eggshelly places in our being. To Be in it, truly without attachment or dependency. Sharing my life with someone..being loved and love in return..also let me evolve and grow into a stronger person.  I am so thankful for the special souls in my world who have been here with me, walked this path, together, with love and respect, with complete allowance and acceptance. I am equally grateful for the lessons learnt through great heart ache and pain. Lessons I learned from immense love and passion.  This is what I know: in this life, a steady love, and a place to call home, are far more precious than any earthly possessions or wealth in this world. I will use what I have for growth, change for others and myself. My grandparents gave me that gift and I will pay it forward! I’ve been loved and left  heartbroken, alone and together…May this next chapter be one of wild love, adventure, and most of all ..home.
