Monday Morning Rambles: Does it Make YOU Happy?

Good Morning Loves...

I hope you guys had a wonderful weekend. My weekend consisted of lots and lots of studying and I am loving every moment of it. I remember at one point this weekend, I told my niece "I have to study" and she reminded me "no titi,  you GET to study". One, I was impressed that she actually listens to me and two, she is right! I am so lucky that I was accepted into the program. Sunday morning when I was studying, I could not help but smile because I am doing it... I am living my dream.

Something else exciting happened over the weekend....Zen was able to go on walks with me! Last week, I was debating on getting him a stroller to take him to the vet because it is getting quite expensive taking an uber each time. I was on the fence about purchasing it but after forgetting my phone when I took him on Wednesday (and not being able to uber it back home), the decision was clear...get the damn stroller.

Initially I was getting it solely for vet visits but I wanted to test it out on Saturday morning. I chose to do it REALLY early; partly because I didn't want him to get scared with so many people and cars but MOSTLY because I did not want people staring at us. I had mentioned it on my instagram story that I made this decision and received a couple of private messages from people like "cats are not meant to go on walks like dogs" and "I don't want to judge you but..."

I'm sorry but who came to the law that cats are meant to stay inside all the time? The last time that I checked, Zen didn't commit any crimes and was not on house arrest.

Did I get strange looks this weekend? Yup. Did some people make comments about it? Yup. Did a little girl yell out "daddy look! a cat is in the stroller"? Yup.

Do I care? Nope!

For those few minutes, Zen was happy and experiencing new things. Granted, this story is about Zen and I but... The moral of the story is...who cares what people think. If YOU are happy than F it!

Monday Morning Rambles: Light As A Feather...

For the past month or so, I have been seeing feathers. Feathers on the ground when I am walking, feathers when I catch the bus, feathers on the subway platform. I have always felt that when a feather appeared, it meant that my angels were close to me.

I didn't think anything of it until yesterday. After Sunday morning yoga classes, a lecture is always held and yesterday's lecture focused on "Lightening Up". Now, you may be asking what does lightening up have to do with angels... a lot actually.

Yesterday I discovered that we have not one but TWO guardian angels. These angels have been with us since the beginning of our creation (sorry if you don't believe in this) and their job is to help us feel lighter. Sometimes you hear a little voice in your head that tell you to walk a different way to work or perhaps just to stay home; and later on you find out that making that decision protected you are from harm. Well that little voice was your angel looking out for you. Sometimes we tend to ignore that voice but we need to be more in tune with our higher self so that we can be guided in our right path.

One way that I communicate with my guardian angels is through my Angel Cards...granted, some days I think they are on crack because I have no idea what they are trying to convey to me.

What are some other way to lighten up?
  • Develop your intuition 
  • Learn the lesson that Karma is trying to teach you so that you can remove the burden
  • Pray..pray for things that you want. It is not selfish to ask for things..the world is full of abundance
  • Balance...find the balance between work and play (this is something that I need to work on) 
  • Create a positive attitude instead of reacting to a negative one
  • Eliminate people and things that do not bring you joy. Send them on their way with love and light.

Below is an image that breaks down what various colored feathers can mean....

Monday Morning Rambles: BIG Yogi News!

Good Morning my loves....

Guys for the past week or so, I have been keeping a HUGE secret from you. I wanted to wait until today to share it here because this is my "home" and it only felt right to talk about it, where it all began.

Remember a few weeks ago, I taught yoga at a summer camp and I had an "ah ha" moment and realized that this was my next endeavor? Well my initial plan was to get my certification to solely teach children but after a talking to my friend, I came to the conclusion that I need to take it one step further and look into a 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Program.

Anyone that practices yoga knows that the 200 hour yoga TT builds the foundation if you want to begin sharing the practice with others. I have looked into this in the past and knew that it was extremely expensive (for me) so I always put it off. This time, I decided to let the Universe handle it and just focus on it actually happening.

I spoke to another friend who earned her 200 hours at the Ashram where I practice and she told me to reach out to the director which I did. I ended up sending her a email and basically shared my I never wanted to teach in the past because yoga was so personal to me but that all quickly changed on one Friday afternoon.

After meeting with her last week and going over some details;  I am happy to announce that starting in September, I will begin my yoga teacher training studies (I already started taking additional yoga classes which is also a requirement).

I can not be any more grateful for this opportunity..I already ordered all my books from Amazon.

As you guys know, I share everything on here so I hope you are excited to take this journey with me.
