Making me happy

Some things that fill me with a deep sense of joy, and these things I will be forever grateful for…
~Tea Meditating

Holding a warm cup of yogi egyptian licorice tea calms me. Whether I’m on my way to class, or enjoying a leisurely walk along the beach, I feel grounded. Aware of the present moment, simply with a cup of tea.


~Appreciating Nature

I feel lucky to live in one of the most beautiful places in the world. And yet, it’s easy to forget about the natural beauty that surrounds me.  There’s an awesome park with hiking trails on campus that I walk through everyday. Lately, I’ve been taking the time to bask in all its glory.


~Meeting New People

My environmental studies course has a tutorial. Aka, I get to interact with other people. I love that slightly awkward stage of asking the basic questions: name, hometown, degree major. I also love the potential of making new friends.

And there you have it, a short and sweet trio of bliss.

Tell me: what’s bringing you joy?



Change in season is always a good time to blog.
The clouds a have rolled in, it has officially begun,
Rain season.

It’s not all doom and gloom though, I find the rain really refreshing.
It also makes for a really humid, hot, sweaty bikram class. What’s not to love?
A fellow yogi at my studio gave me the sweetest compliment that made my day!
Basically, she said that she’s noticed I’ve grown a lot from when I started practicing,
not only am I flexible but I am strong.
Yay super yogi-hero strength 😉

Once upon a time, this comment would have led to believe I’m some sort of bulky, overweight being. BS!
Thankfully my somewhat sane brain can rationalize, and I dare I say I am proud of my muscles superpowers.

Surround yourselves with people that lift you up 🙂
Happy (mid) Octobra! (i think it sounds nicer)
