Be Here. Now.

Well, that's one way to know where you are....

This concept has always been tough for me. I enjoy a good yoga class, though I may not take in or agree with every philosophy presented, I like a good sweat (my hair doesn't, but I digress) and I enjoy the fact that for a hot, humidity-laden hour, I am encouraged to be right where I am and focus on exactly what I’m doing and nothing else.
Carrying this concept outside of those doors is where the difficulty comes in. I have this tendency to try to predict everything. If I start something it’s not before I consider every possibility of exactly how it will end and what the next steps will be. If you know anything about life, anything at all, you know that this is impossible. Like, all the way not going to happen. So why do I do it? Why do you? Why do we? Let’s be in this together.

Don't Be Happy

Hey, you...stop that. Just kidding, you're fabulous

Or do. But don’t. But it’s okay if you are. The end. Just kidding…

I feel like our culture places a lot of value on being happy. Happiness in itself is not a bad thing. Tons of things make me happy: food, sleep, other food, more sleep, naps, pizza….
But I think that’s dangerous. Being happy is good, but sometimes it's not important...
