let love rule.

my yoga practice 
makes me feel


my yoga high 
lasts for hours.

if something made you feel that good, 
don't you think you'd carve out 
a little time to do it every day?

last week, i practiced on the beach.
the boys surfed.
the sun was warm.
the smell of the ocean 
was intoxicating.

i even meditated for 30 mins.
i was so proud of myself.
i was 'that girl' taking time for herself.
i left with a mantra.


let love rule your life. 
your decisions. 
your happiness.
your relationships.
your fears.
your creativity.

i was going to put myself first in the coming week, 
give myself permission to practice yoga, 
just 20 mins. every day.
before laundry, 
before grocery shopping, 
before homework, 
before a ride here or there, 
before work.

but, here it is, a week later...and only today, 
am i finally going to give myself a little time.
that is, if there is time after the shopping, 
the meal preparation, 
the laundry 
and the 100 pairs of earrings 
i need to make and ship before monday.


i will, i promise. if i have time.
images here.
and here.

update: i ended up putting off finishing this 
blog post yesterday {thursday}
and i did my practice; 
squeezing it in between work and dinner. 
it felt great. i was proud. content.
