jammin' at the light rail station
happy autumn! these are my favorite months in colorado. the days are warm, the nights are a bit chilly and the leaves are scattered everywhere. i really enjoy when the seasons change because it allows us to move from the attachments we've made in the previous one. ☺
one thing i wanted to talk about is community. how important it is for us to be connected to one is unexplainable. we can come together to share, to create, and above all to love. sometimes in life when you least expect it, you find yourself in a room with passionate people all uniting to one mindset: to learn new things and to share it. for me in this moment it is my yoga teacher training. it has been so vibrant and changed my practice tremendously. in the few classes i've attended i've not only gone deeper behind the scenes with yoga, but i've gotten a broader sense of myself. how i communicate to people, how i want to create in this world and share my love.
the feeling i get when i step onto the mat is just amazing. i've never been so sure about something in my life. the amount of self awareness i've received from this practice is just so above and beyond. in my heart i know i'm on the right path, and at this point thats all i need to know. it feels good to live presently and consciously.
kale, avocado and cherry tomato salad
at the light rail stop i enjoyed a kale salad, raw trail mix, delicious fall apples and good tunes. while i was waiting for it to pick me up a few things came up in my head:
- organize my apartment, and get rid of clutter
- maintain raw food options in the colder months
- continue to eat how my body wants
- read more books
- make my own bath and body products
- keep practicing ukulele
- try to go to one yoga class a day
- run a few days a week
- make sweet potato fudge this week
- roast all my favorite fall veggies
- learn more gluten free recipes
during the chilly scooter ride home from teacher training i realized i was part of something awesome. i am part of a community (friends and family) that is driven by their passions, good food and know how to love. i get to learn and laugh everyday and for me thats the two simplest ways to enjoy life.
