DEFINING MOMENTS AT 40

I admit turning 40 made me think a lot about what I've done thus far with my life and what I want to do with the rest of it. It went from idealistic wish lists to pissed off rants (reminder: don't blog when PMSing).

I decided to go back and redo this post...again...with an intention of how my reflection could help others. My collage is of everything that is truly important to me. It was easy actually. The ones that stuck out were of my sweet family Shaun and Cashmere, our studio, our members and friends, helping those in need, yoga, adventures, making yummy and healthy meals, intimacy, and rest.  

You see, I fell into the trap of "not enough" at 40 syndrome. Not enough attention, not enough money, not enough members, not enough time off, not enough lululemon. I secretly wanted a surprise birthday party even though I was butt ass tired from all the crazy goings on in January. I told myself it was materialistic to want more yoga clothes and that I've matured out of that outward gratification.

Sure, I'd like to once in a while get a new piece of cool gear, treat myself to a massage, go on a vacation with the fam and eat something totally bad for me.

Yesterday was the first day I've been able to practice second series in two weeks. I wasn't sure how my backbends would feel but they were AMAZING. Who knows. Maybe I'll evenutally finish the series and move onto third. Yikes! We'll see, only time will tell.

Spend your time wisely folks. Focus on those whom you love. Do what you love. And, share it. Let go of unserving thoughts. Enjoy what you have. You'll be surprised that you don't need much to be happy at 40 or 50 or 100.
