This week kinda just flew by. I started the week with a midterm paper due, and after that knee I’d be having a lighter work load until this coming week. I have an exam and some papers coming up, but every time I find myself getting stressed I remember the term “bless stress.” I’m blessed to be here receiving an education and worrying about schoolwork rather than where my next meal will come from or if I’ll have a place to sleep at night. Perspective is everything.
I taught a yoga class at a real studio Wednesday morning. I subbed in for a class that started at 5:30 am. The 4:30 wake up call was tough but teaching was soooo worth it. Loved the space I was in and leading other women through a nice flow.
I started feeling sick Monday night and now have a cold. Just lots of sniffling and coughing. It’ll pass! Just have to rest up and give myself some extra care and compassion.
I don’t have a lot of time to read blogs throughout the week just because of other obligations, so I always look forward to Friday’s and the weekends when I do have that time. I love reading what some bloggers have to say, or getting the chance to listen to podcasts. The Food Psych podcasts have been on point lately. Love the topics they’re bringing onto that show and the diversity of guests she has.
I had a dirty chai today and it was very good. If you’re looking to spice up your typical coffee order try this: iced chai tea latte with soy milk and 1 shot of espresso. Also I’ve really been digging matcha lattes with soy milk lately too. 10/10 reccommend.
The new season of Stranger Things comes on Netflix today and I’m legit SO excited. I don’t keep up with a lot of Netflix shows but this one is definitely worth it.
Going into Halloween Weekend mind blown in a way that October is coming to an end and November (my birthday month) is approaching. Excited to spend time with my friends and dress up in angsty rock star clothes tonight and go home Saturday!
One last thing before you go into the weekend, and something I typically always say before I teach yoga. Bring your hands to pray, resting against your heart. Feel your heart beat? You’re alive, you have a purpose. Don’t let go of that. Move your hands toward your lips- remembering to think before you speak, and letting the words about yourself be kind ones, for you deserve respect and appreciate for every layer of your being. Move your hands toward your third eye center, letting this serve as a reminder to do things in life with good intentions and to trust your intuition.
Thanks for reading my thoughts today.
What are your weekend plans? Any Stranger Things fans? Favorite podcast lately?
Sending love and light! Xoxo
