Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.

Have you any idea what’s around the next bend? Have you any idea what’s coming next?
I wrote about hope just a few days ago (DAY 84) and it’s been on my mind ever since. After talking to a friend about it, we decided that perhaps there are two kinds of hope.
1) Big Picture Hope: This is the hope and belief inside of you that everything will be okay. Maybe it’s not going to be the kind of okay you had planned on, but no matter what you hold out hope.
2) Circumstantial Hope: This is the hope for a specific outcome, situation, action, or result.
Consider this photo. You can’t quite see what’s over that berm. Circumstantial Hope might be something like, “I hope it’s a view of the ocean,” or “I hope there’s a place to sit down,” or even, “I hope it’s worth all the hiking I did to get here.” You hope for a specific thing. There’s nothing wrong with that hope. It’s fun! It’s the hope that allows us to dream and see beyond our current horizon.
Big Picture Hope, however, isn’t tied to any one situation. Big Picture Hope says, “I have the hope that no matter what’s just over that next hill, I’m going to be okay.” It’s not just optimism, but a real expectation and desire to be happy. Hope motivates us to move forward, because hope helps us remove fear.
So much of our hope gets channeled into specific situations and outcomes, that we forget to be a hopeful person. We’re devastated when a particular outcome doesn’t go the way we hoped, and we forget that we’re going to be okay even if very few things go our way.
I said it then and I say it now: I’m hopeful about the future. I have some real specific dreams and I hope they come through. But I’m also just a hopeful person, so I have the hope that even if they don’t, I’ll be just fine.

We had a super early dentist appointment today , Cavity Free again ❤️🦷 Sebastian has had all his teeth from an early age, and he has kept them strong and healthy 👌 We are just missing our 3year old molars 🦷
It's crazy to see how much he has grown from last year. He's growing up too fast like it's just not okay. Even the dentist assistant was like wow you are taller than my 3 yr old📏
We had a random library trip, and my bookworm of course loved it ! Our favorite library is being remolded for the next couple of months. So we have two more libraries to check out before we choose one to attend too📖
But nothing beats taking a walk in the rain 🌧️
Maybe next time we will wear better shoes than TOMS, haha does aren't great walking shoes 🚶♀️🚶

It's a fact that consumers have indicated that they gravitate toward businesses that are socially, ethically and environmentally conscious, but some unscrupulous businesses take advantage of this by resorting to greenwashing and/or deceit about their donation practices. We are committed to authenticity, and we embrace our donation partners and celebrate those relationships. If a company isn't promoting or publicly identifying their charity or non-profit, don't be afraid to ask where their donation money goes. We are proud to support @sealifer3 in the creation of this unisex organic cotton tee! 100% of the proceeds from this tee goes directly to @sealifer3, and two dollars of every purchase of apparel from our Mighty Ocean Collection also goes to SR3 to support their work advancing the health and welfare of marine wildlife in the Pacific Northwest. Cheers to joining hands in support of each other and the planet! 🌏♻️🤝🌊🏔🏞🌲

Slowly but surely I’m picking old rituals back up.
Last year I went through a season where my mat wasn’t a very comfortable place. My practice lacked the therapeutic benefits I needed and my other hobbies took over.
I had run myself into the ground and as much as I wanted to practice I just felt totally lost.
So I took a step back form my mat. I continued to teach but I no longer spent hours each week on my mat.
Now I’m starting to reach back out. It started with small 5 minute flows. Just gentle or silly, or whatever I feel like in the moment.
It’s okay to take a break-even from the things you love. Sometimes pushing yourself is good, other times you end up full of resentment.
Give yourself some grace to flow through life. After all the biggest benefit of yoga is what you take with you off the mat.
