My upcoming "milestone birthday" has me thinking about my old belief that certain ages meant I needed to have certain ✨things✨ accomplished - many of which are completely out of my control (marriage, babies, money, owning house/car). I didn't come up with this stuff on my own, I didn't wake up in bed one day and say if I am not a mom by 30 I am failing at life. These "rules" come from the people around me and our culture. . . One reason why my husband and I decided to leave the norm, downsize and disappear from regular society was to figure out what we actually wanted, not what we're taught to want. We've told this to people and it sometimes infuriates them. I am not saying your choices are not your choices - I am simply talking about me. As a child and young adult, I had dreamed up a life based on these rules and one day asked myself, "how do I know if I actually want this or if I want it because I'm supposed to?" I realized that my intuition was getting drowned out by my friends, my coworkers, my family, tv etc. I am hoping that in this more quiet, strange lifestyle we're able to identify what it is that we actually want and associate it with a feeling, instead of a number. . . . .

I will overcome. . . All of us have baggage, some of us identify as survivors and others as victims. I have waffled between identifying as both depending on my spiritual fitness. I am a survivor, of things I might have deserved and of things I didn't. I am not a victim. Because when I am in victim mentality, I cannot overcome. And though many things have happened that had nothing to do with me or my actions, my REACTION is my responsibility. And sometimes it takes years before I can let go of the victim feeling and react with strength and move forward and sometimes it takes minutes. They may have done this to me, but I will not be swayed, I will overcome, I will grow and I will be happy. I no longer allow people to "rent space in my head for free." You suck/you died/you ____, I fell for it/I allowed it/I am broken/_____. I (eventually) move on, I get free. I might not overcome without tears, living in bed, sadness and fear. But I will always overcome. . . Thank you so much to all the participants who so bravely shared in this beautiful challenge for @thisismybrave.

I am worthy of stopping for. . . I have found that I am really good at making excuses that prevent me from practicing self care. I don't have enough time to do yoga, I am too tired to meditate, I have to do this instead of resting...the list goes on. I am excellent at prioritizing work and others and absolutely terrible at putting self care on that list. What ends up happening is a complete crash and burn. I cannot function long term without self care. Since I've started some new jobs recently, I've made a conscious effort to put in place boundaries that require me to put my mental health first. I am not going above and beyond all the time, but I am doing my best, within required hours. I am being very careful to take breaks, to say no, and to not feel guilty. It's different. But I think this is going to make a huge difference in my ability to sustain and be happy. . . Day Six // . . Wearing all @liquidoactive . . .

Everything is exactly as it should be. . . I hate the unknown. I am not spontaneous, I am not someone who makes decisions on a whim. I am a type-a planner, with spreadsheets and to-do lists. Unfortunately, the world is not always cooperative to my ideas and plans. Getting comfortable in the in-between and unknown has been one of my greatest challenges. The practice of yoga has completely changed my brain, though the need to know still lingers, I am much calmer in the unknown. I have so much more faith in the universe today, that I am where I am supposed to be and that everything is as it should be. This faith started out as blind faith for myself - but something I saw in my yoga teachers and my yoga friends. Eventually, the more life showed up, the more I saw how I survived and how I needn't obsess on fear or worry. I still have a million to-do lists, spreadsheets and plans. But I am more flexible today when they don't turn out or when I have to be patient to uncover what comes next. . . Day Five // . . Wearing all @liquidoactive . . .

Everything worth having is on the other side of a challenge. . . My husband got sick in 2016, a terrifying ICU kind of sick. The kind of sick where we were told he needed to find a new career, become left handed and take serious medication daily. I was a wreck (obviously) and crushed because we had big plans for that year - to quit a job I hated, move into an RV and volunteer around the country at different national parks - it seemed like our world was over. He ended up working at the HS I was teaching at while he began to recover with PT and doctor appointments. He decided to accept a second year offer, even though he really didn't enjoy teaching and missed the kitchen. Simultaneously, we began to explore our options volunteering with the National Park Service. We realized that he was actually now eligible to be a PAID Park Ranger since he had two years of experience teaching. So in 2018, we quit jobs we hated, moved into an RV and now GET PAID to work around the country at different parks. It seemed our world was over but actually, it was the beginning of a much better version. . . Day Four // . . Wearing all @liquidoactive . . .

Everything passes, the good and the bad. . . I don't wait for the other shoe to drop, I know that life has ups and downs. I try my best not to hold my breath in the good times, thinking constantly about how it could all go wrong. I used to do that and it just created unhappiness all the time. No matter how much I practice yoga, meditate, breathe - things will go wrong, I will get disappointed and things might even seem impossible to get through. But I have seen that I can get through it all. Not alone, but on my own two feet. Every single feeling, thought, situation passes - the good stuff and also the bad.

Hear your truth, then listen. . . I was severely depressed as a teenager, my mind told me everyone was prettier, smarter, cooler than me. I began to feel left out and alone - even if I was standing and engaging with a group. I simply always felt like something was missing. I began to look for validation through drugs, alcohol, and men. But it didn't work - in fact, it exasperated the situation. Yoga didn't save me then, rehab did. The truth is, I needed professional assistance to remove all the layers that stood between my gut and my mind. I was on antidepressants for a very long time and went to therapy regularly. I still don't do "this" alone - though I have been off of medication and without therapy for quite some time. And now, without drugs and alcohol for many years, and living a life with awareness, intention, and honesty - I can finally hear my gut and my heart. And because of yoga, I can listen. . .

I deserve happiness, contentment and joy. . . I can struggle with the conflicting dilemma of what I want, what I think I need and what I think others expect me to have. I can get really tangled up in the "I should be . . ." because of (usually) my age or my experience. But societal rules, norms, and expectations do not have to be mine. I can dye my hair purple, buy a horse instead of a car and live in a tent IF THAT'S WHAT I WANT. (I really want a unicorn but for the sake of reality I said horse.) Here's what I'm learning - this world, this universe wants me to be happy! I am the one imposing these ridiculous rules that prevent me from living my dreams. If I want to sell our home, give away basically everything and move into 152 square feet..then I am going to do it (✅✅✅). And if I find out this isn't bringing me joy, I can change my mind. I deserve to do everything in my power to be happy. I have worked in terrible working conditions and convinced myself that it was okay to be unhappy - it is not. I deserve to be happy and to not settle. And so do you. . . Day One // . . Wearing all . . .

I am always so stunned at the gratitude I feel after teaching each class. It is a true gift to get to share yoga. I never planned on becoming a yoga teacher but now I can't imagine my life without it. It is an honor to teach yoga in a National Park to all different kinds of people - rangers, visitors, campers, archeologists, volunteers. A true honor. ✨ . . . . .

I want to say yes to everything. I want to be agreeable and liked. I want to be praised for my ability to "do it all." But that's not what it actually looks like in reality. When I say yes to everything, usually I'm saying no to something else, most often my family. When I focus on being liked, the people who like me tend to not even know me. And when I'm looking for outside validation, I never truly feel content. . . I don't have the solution for this, I just have the awareness that these are my tendencies. It takes a consistent effort for me to lay boundaries, practice self care and be true to myself and my needs. I fall short, and end up burnt out, resentful and frustrated. But today, I try to lead with self love and honesty and do the best I can. . . . . .

I recently made the decision to stop shaving. I have been wanting to do this for a long time but a few things were stopping me. Being a yoga teacher - I didn't want to freak out my students with hairy legs and hairy pits. Being self conscious - I didn't want to make my in-laws, relatives, or strangers uncomfortable. . . It's been six weeks since I last shaved. And honestly, I have mixed feelings about it. I really like not shaving, but I'm still self conscious. It's also really weird to see myself with all this hair. But I am keeping with it because overall I feel really free, that I'm making a decision about my body for myself and not because society is telling me I have to. . . Right now I'm going to keep growing these hairy pits because I haven't decided if I like them or not. And the truth is, if I shave right now, I'm doing it out of fear of judgement. I hope I can reach a point where I can decide to shave or not based solely on how I feel. . . I also stopped wearing deodorant but I suppose I'll leave that for another post 🤣🤣🤣. . . // Day Six Backbend Pose with a Smile . . ✨Hosts @shreeyoga @suchitra_rx @yoga_miss_tee . . ✨Sponsors @liquidoactive @mymalanecklace @insideoutsideoutsidein @flowyogawear @elasticapparel @radhabeauty @narabellabrand @myjunglemat . . . .

For a year, I only did yoga in a studio. I had no home practice and I was very used to hearing breath cues - but I wasn't implementing them. I remember the exact yoga class where I actually started to breathe. That sounds silly - obviously, I was breathing the whole time. BUT I remember when I started to breathe with intention, with each movement. Noticing my inhales and exhales. Using my inhales and exhales. Everything changed. Literally, everything changed. My mat is a mirror, how I show up in yoga is how I show up everywhere. . . Practicing pranayama has been healing, transformative and informative. Where in my life do I hold my breath? When? Why? I often use "deep breathing" to calm me down but how about using deep breathing always? How about a constant state of awareness, intention and serenity. . . Today - notice your breathing patterns. When someone hurts your feelings, how does your breath change? When you get excited, notice the speed of your breathing. When you're tired, try some breaths of joy. When you get scared, how long until you exhale? . . . 💜🔆 🔆💜 Day Six // . . ☀️Your Hosts:☀️ @ritaayoga @itsmyoga @salty_hair_yogi . . 🌟Generous Sponsors:🌟 @mymalanecklace @liquidoactive @myga_yoga . . .

Surrender to win. . . That is one of the most confusing and the most freeing statements I've ever encountered. The idea that I have to let go to receive is so counterintuitive to the culture we live in. But fighting against the flow, holding on to resentments, blaming, nurturing old truths that no longer apply, keep me stuck. Feeling that I always know best and desiring to always be right, puts me in a position to lose every time. It's when I relax, accept, and breathe that I can find happiness and peace. . . . 💜🔆 🔆💜 Day Five // . . ☀️Your Hosts:☀️ @ritaayoga @itsmyoga @salty_hair_yogi . . 🌟Generous Sponsors:🌟 @mymalanecklace @liquidoactive @myga_yoga . . .
