“BETTER WE RAISE OUR SKILL, THAN LOWER OUR CLIMB.” -Royal Robbins

Dream BIG, then RISE to the occasion!

Today my yoga teacher talked about how trees don’t compete for nutrients, but rather share them through an underground system of roots and fungi– helping each other grow tall towards the sun. After a particularly stressful academic week, this message really resonated within me. There is room in this universe for everyone, for everyone to grow and flourish and fulfill their own individual sense of purpose. So why do we act as if one person gaining success will ultimately render us as failures? College is a pressure cooker, especially for people who base their own worth off of the highest form of success. You are not your body, your clothes, your income, your job, your grades… you are a beautifully made human being, an infinitesimal sum of your hopes and dreams; you are a soul. And me? I am Kaela, and my happiness and worth as a member of humanity will not be augmented by slaving away to achieve the perfect grade point, or not eating a cookie that I so, so want to eat to shed slivers of fat off of my body. Celebrate yourself today please loves! 💫 February is draining, but the days are slowly lengthening and the world is starting to thaw.

ROCK THE VOTE.

today i felt proud because i had a really bad breakdown last night and instead of feeling horrible about it and sleeping all day today, since thats what i usually do after breakdowns, i got up and ate a healthy breakfast and cleaned my room and did yoga!

What an awesome way to spend the day!

“ENLIGHTENMENT IS WHEN A WAVE REALIZES IT IS THE OCEAN.”

“Today modern science is proving that this whole existence is just a reverberation of energy, an endless vibration. Thoughts too are a reverberation. If you generate a powerful thought and let it out, it will always manifest itself. For this to happen, it is important that you do not impede and weaken your thought by creating negative and self-defeating thought patterns.

Generally, people use faith as a means to banish negative thoughts. Once you become a thinking human being, however, doubts invariably surface. The way your mind is made, if God appears right here this moment, you will not surrender to him or her. Instead, you will want to conduct an investigation to find out whether this is the genuine article or not.

There is an alternative to faith, which is commitment. If you simply commit yourself to creating what you really care for, now once again your thoughts get organized in such a way that there are no hurdles. Your thoughts flow freely toward what you want, and once this happens, the manifestation of your desire is a natural consequence.

To create what you really care for, your desire must first be well manifested in your mind. Is that what you really want? Think this through carefully. How many times in your life have you thought, “This is it.” The moment you got there you realized that was not it at all! So, first explore what it is that you really want. Once that is clear and you are committed to creating it, you generate a continuous process of thought in that direction. When you maintain a steady stream of thought without changing direction, it will manifest as a reality in your life.

There are yogic processes by which you can touch another dimension of intelligence, unsullied by memory, called chitta, which we have mentioned earlier. Realizing the power of chitta is called chit shakti, a simple and powerful process through which you can access the very source of creation within you.”

So today I don’t have a sweaty selfie for you because I started Yoga With Adriene’s Yoga Revolution. I was supposed to do Yoga Fix today but I don’t enjoy it so I decided to start this instead.
I’m on my last day of my first round of 21 Day Fix. I plan on starting my second round right away tomorrow - but I’ll post more about my experience tomorrow. I want this whole eating healthy and working out thing to be second nature instead of an afterthought.

Fresh Air producer Sam Briger talked to writer Maria Semple about her new comic novel, Today Will Be Different. It’s about a stressed-out wife and mother, whose career is stalled. She starts each day with a mantra. Part of that mantra includes, “Today I will take pride in my appearance. I’ll shower, get dressed in proper clothes, and only change into yoga clothes for yoga, which today I will actually attend…”

Maria Semple wrote for Mad About You and Arrested Development.

Today’s practice was all about slowing things down. When my mind is racing I do my best to slow down my breathing, slow down my body and this usually helps to slow down my mind, so I can think and see things more clearly.
