Meet Me @ My Mat

I love yoga. I also love Jesus.

Nothing against the beliefs that many yogis cultivate at all, I just don’t roll that way. I’ll be honest, I tried, and it felt right for a while, but then the Holy Spirit began asking me to become focused on Him during my time on the mat.

So I struggled to find a balance between my religious beliefs and the yoga that I love so much. I finally found my niche. When I get on the mat, I don’t praise myself for getting on the mat, I praise God for meeting me on my mat.

I use the time on my mat as a prayer session. I use it to invite the Holy Spirit to meet me where I am and thank Him for the time together. Yeah, I know He’s always with me, but my mat time is a special time where we get to be face to face. If you’re looking for a good place to start, check out Caroline Williams Yoga YouTube Channel.

I’m gonna be real with you, none of this is right, or wrong, it just works for me!

What works for you?!
I’d love to hear how you deal with feelings getting in the way of things you love?

Recently, I dipped my toes into the big world of small business. It’s scary, but with the right friends, it’s less scary.

That’s how I met Adrian O’Shea from Hoosier Threads. This company is his baby, on top of a full-time job. He rocks at what he does.

What to Write When You Don’t Know What to Write

Let’s start with the fact that I chose to:

  1. Get out of bed
  2. Breathe

Today I feel just ok. I don’t feel exceptional, gifted, or awesome in any form of the words.

I feel… ok. Normally, that would be just ok, just fine, just dandy. But, in my life, battling depression, bipolar, anxiety, and OCD on a daily basis, I might tend to think an ok day is much more than just ok.
