A bliss-filled, impromptu afternoon of photography and Yoga

"Make each moment an occasion to live deeply, happily, in peace."  ~ Thich Nhat Hanh ~

Audrey is a creative, mature, purposeful five-year-old - I am her Yoga-loving Mama.  On a recent Friday afternoon, we made a perfect pair - I was happily moving through my daily Yoga practice and Audrey was shooting photos of me in various poses.  Audie loves to take photos of anything and everything, so that Friday afternoon together was a perfect pairing of passions - Audrey with photography and her Mama with Yoga.  And the best part?  It was an unplanned rendez-vous and a wonderful mother-daughter bonding time.

To be honest, when Audrey burst into my Yoga practice, I was more than a little agitated.  But I took a breath and embraced the moment (and Audrey) and rolled with it.  Just another reminder - if we let life unfold, radiance will shine through when we least suspect it. 
Where do you find your joy?  Is it in planned, articulated activities, or do you find pleasure by going with the flow and making each moment count as the gift that it truly is?  When we drop our expectations and release ourselves from attachment to the way we think things SHOULD be, life blossoms around us and we're able to live deeply, happily and in peace.
Check out a few random photos below from our spur of the moment Yoga photography shoot.

How Can You Adjust Your Sails to Meet Your Destination?

"I can't change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust the sails to always reach my destination."  ~ Jimmy Dean ~

A colossal thank you to all 35 of you who attended the New Year's REVOLUTION workshop last week.  I was humbled and honored to have each and every one of you there.  You rocked the place with 2 1/2 hours of exceptional work, focus, and breath.  It is my hope that through the practice, you were able to find the clarity of mind to adjust your sails and enter 2012 with a clear destination.

A week later, have you drifted off your path or have you stayed the course?  If you are still grounded, focused, and in sync with your destination, three cheers to you!  If you've fallen off the wagon a bit, it's not a big deal!  Simply acknowledge your behavior and readjust your sails to take yourself back where you know you need and want to be.

Life is a process of learning what works and what doesn't.  What is beneficial to you one day may be a detriment another.  We all experience ups and downs and hills and valleys in life.  It's through constant observation and razor sharp awareness that we can become more of who we are here to become. 

Take five minutes now to softly close your eyes, breathe deeply, and slow down your frenetic mind.  See what you see without judgment and make needed adjustments to your sails.  Isn't it a beautiful thing that we have these tools to keep us on the path to our destination?  From the bottom of my heart, thank you all.
