White rice experiment

Yoga to me is just as much about the body as it is about my spirit and emotional state of being. I love it! I love the way I feel so energized but relaxed afterwards, the feeling of really pushing my self and my body to the limit. I love the way I feel grounded and like I can accomplish anything. I could seriously do yoga everyday and truly miss it when it's not a constant in my life ;") The fact that I've been able to share yoga with my baby sister lately, well that's pure bonus!

Last night's teacher was amazing! She really knew how to push you but reminded you that your practice is whatever you wanted it to be, to only push yourself and your body as far as you can comfortably. She talked a lot about fear and pushing through it. Not to run away from it but to push through it and know that on the other side of that fear would be great satisfaction and happiness... Happiness that you did something you didn't think You could do.
Think about that, how many things hold us back because we're afraid? We really only have one life to live and were living on borrowed time so go out do things that make you happy and LIVE!!!

She also mentioned a white rice experiment, noting of you took rice, cooked it put the same amount into 3 jars, exactly the same, same cleanliness, same size, same everything. In Jar #1 you would label it with kind words such as love, gratitude, joy, happiness and you would talk to this jar everyday and say these nice things to it. Jar #2 you would write hateful words on it and say hateful things to it and jar #3 you would stick up the cabinet in darkness. As time went on jar 1 would be lively and eventually turn into Sake'. Jar 2 would be putrid, black and rotting and jar 3 would be even worse. If this is what happens to rice imagine what would happen to people if treated this way??

Remember every single day is a NEW day a wonderful beginning to be our better self, push through fear and be the person you were always meant to be! Make every day count! Live your truth and be honest with yourself.

Namaste my friends ;0)

49er fan

My hubby is the most wonderful, Amazing man! One of the things I love best about him is his loyalty. Ever since I can remember he's been a fan of the 49ers and of the kings. Every game no matter what he changes into his teams gear, if he doesn't already have it on. I always love that :0) He even has a Kings and 49er blanket. One thing he told me before we got married is "I watch every single 49er game and you have to be OK with that." lol. He really didn't have to worry, anything he loves that much I would never keep him away from anyway :0) His loyalty flows into everything he does and I appreciate it. I know that through the good, bad and the ugly he will defend what he believes in, will stand behind you like a rock and will always be there even when most others would have given up. I'm seriously excited for him today and hope the 49ers pull out a win. Its time for the "GOOD" for his team. Lets go!!!!

I'm also so excited for Rylan to grow up with Aaron as his daddy, to be around such an amazing man will surely influence him to be the same! Gentle yet Strong, Smart, funny, Hard working and Loyal to very end!

I love you Aaron! Can't wait for you to come home excited because your team won!!

Off and making yummy goodies for today's festivities

Iphone addiction

So I think I may need to go to a meeting or something! I love this phone! I found out on facebook his name is Alejandro Rodriguez Alee Alee jandro.... Like lady gaga sings. I didn't really understand it at first. Why do these people with their fancy phones think they can just do anything better and faster and more efficient! Ohhhhh go on with your bad self and see if I care you can play games, look up movies, Facebook, bank, and do everything with your little hand held device! I was like what's all the hype?? Then I got one! Now I literally freak out if I forget it, where's my phone??? Omg we have to turn around to get it. I dont care were almost where were going!!! I NEED it!! I mean I'm using it to type this as we speak!!! Lol. Sooo yeah I think this may be a problem! Anyway today I really did forget it and we were half way to where we were going and running late so no I didn't make Aaron turn around but I feel as though my line to the outside world was missing. Lol

Do they have meetings?? Lol

Ok seriously I'm not as bad as some people but I can see how this little device can come in and completely occupy your time, texting, calling, downloading apps, games for ry, ohhh i love the baby sign language app, words w friends, dice buddies, picture taking, ohhhh my how the list goes on and on!!! See I'm feeling a twinge of excitement as I think of all the things this thing can do! Lol

Although I do love this phone and realize they do come in handy I recognize there really could be an addiction! This realization came to me when the other day we were visiting my brother out of town and decided we wanted to stop for breakfast. Ok easy enough. Sooo Harrison gets on his phone w some find a restaurant near us app and I'm using the around me app and were locating all the restaurants in the nearest location to us, Aaron's driving and both Harrison and I are giving him lists of sooo many places and the distance in exact miles. Aaron's kinda getting confused as you can imagine with so many choices being thrown at him, I'm already pretty indecisive by nature and Harrison is indifferent. So we're now driving and basically just playing the what's coming up next game. I'm like ohhhh there's an Ihop coming up in .28 miles, still looking at my phone, as is Harrison. That's when I realize uhhh if we both just look up we would probably be able to find it, I mean actually see it with our own eyes, that's an idea???! I mean old fashioned but a heck of an idea!! Lol see the issue? Lol At that moment I felt sooo ridiculous!

I use that moment as a reminder to try not to get to caught up with all these fancy electronics and devices and really pay attention to what's around us. To be conscious of how much time I'm spending on these type of things and make sure I remember what's most important. To look up into the world and use my eyes and senses and not my "fancy" phone all the time!

I think it's a good reminder for us all. Although I do love you iPhone "Alejandro Rodriguez" I need to put a little distance between us sometimes. It's me... Not you! We're not breaking up, we're just taking it a little slower.

Hoping I'm not the only one that feels this way lol
