Which way?

Happy June!

I’ve been meaning to write this post for a while, but for whatever reason I have been putting it off. Anyways here it goes.

Sometimes
I think about life. A lot.

And then I feel like this

It’s kind of exhausting stressing over where I am ‘supposed’ to be, what I am ‘supposed’ to be doing, who I am ‘supposed’ to be hanging out with. You get the picture. To free my mind from this battle, I’ve been practicing letting things be.
No ruminating or over-analyzation aloud. Though it’s not always the easiest thing to do, it’s much nicer. You should try it.
——————————————————–
Hold onto the things you value, the things that you are most passionate about and they’ll guide you to where you need to be.
The truth is there is nothing that anyone is supposed to be doing. We can fill our lives with what brings us joy without the burden of unnecessary obligations that fill our minds. Live simply, always do what is true to you.

Woah, crazy how time flies. It’s been a while since I posted. But I assure you I have still kept up with blogs I follow and  blogs I don’t follow. What can I say, I spend a lot of time reading about other peoples lives. I just never feel I have as much to share…
However, I think it’s important to mention that I still ❤ yoga.

It’s true.

Recently, I competed at the regional and national asana championships.
It was an awesome week filled with inspiration.
And now that it’s over, I’m incredibly sad, yet grateful for the joyous memories created.
Yoga provides me with a tremendous amount of happiness.
It changes the way I think about myself, others, and life.
It’s ridiculously addicting.
(in a good way)

So my posts are just kind of jumbles of random thoughts. Here’s a more structured post you might enjoy ( I did) about the similarities of yoga and blogging.

What do you want to be?

Recently I was asked this question.
The question that seems to come up so much in the life of a 19 year old. With only months left of my teenage years I wonder, who have I become?

Or maybe more importantly, am I working towards who I want to become. I feel I can’t say for certain what that ‘who’ looks like so to say. All I know is that as a human being, I am forever changing in this journey we call life. And feel no need to live up to societies idealized version of success.

The truth is, I feel lost.
Running from the past, yet hiding from the future.
And maybe that’s okay.
Maybe it’s all part of learning who I am.

I am committed to being happy.

I am committed to finding my purpose.
I am committed to following my dream.

more to life

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again…
I spend much of my time alone.


This used to bother me a whole awful lot. In fact, it was one of the triggers of my ed.
Now that’s in the past, and I enjoy my solitude without putting my health in danger. most of the time.
However, there are days when I yearn for human connection.
Some days I want more than just the yoga studio chatter or a friendly smile of a passerby.
Human interaction is a powerful thing,
that is, generally taken for granted.

That may have sounded a tad melodramatic, but it is so true.
With each encounter of another being, you are impacting their life, whether it be significant or not.

What’s all this trivial jabber about social interactions… or lack thereof?
I have just moved into my dorm for the fall semester at uni! Yes, I live in a dormroom.
On the bright side it’s quiet a bit larger than last years’, but unfortunately it’s in a much older building.
Anyhow, I moved in early so I am alone for now, but on Sunday this place will be packed.
No more isolation, I refuse to let myself be a hermit like I did first year.
I finally am finding a sense of myself, without ed.

Now, it’s time to make time for others. Relationships.
There’s no more time for me to be scared.
Because there’s too many amazing people I have yet to encounter.
