Monday Motivational: Are you Grateful?

July 1st, 2019

It’s Monday…. let’s talk GRATITUDE!  Who feels grateful that it is Monday?  There has been research done that proclaims people actually feel more depressed on Mondays.  One article I found was literally titled “Scientific study concludes that Mondays suck!”  Crazy, huh?   Well, if you are reading this article thinking that you are going to be one of those statistics, it’s time to change that! Did you know you actually get to choose how you feel and how you respond to circumstances?  You might be thinking, “yeah I know that” …. but do your actions reflect that you know that? ... Read More

It is Inexhaustible

May 14th, 2019

As winter fades away and the natural world begins to wake, Ravi Zupa has ushered in spring with the release of the fourth print in his Tattoo Gratitude series. “Every year around this time, there seems to be a lot of chaos and upheaval,” Zupa says. “Perhaps this is partly because of the change of seasons as we recover from the darkness of winter and begin our return trip toward longer days. Springtime is a violent and destructive phenomenon first, before it gives way to birth and nurture.” This fourth piece in the series depicts a dragon, a cat who has caught a snake, and a peacock. The... Read More

Motivational Monday – Friendship: The best holiday investment you can make!

December 10th, 2018

Humans are social beings. There are hundreds of scientific studies that prove this to be true.  I believe that that our desire for social acceptance along with a desire to be loved, are the core intrinsic motivators for most of our behavior.  I love socializing which is one of the reasons I enjoy the holiday season so much.  At a holiday party this weekend I met a woman who told me about a study that was done at the University of Kansas to determine how long it takes for friendships to develop. The article states: “In a new report published in the Journal of Social and Personal Relationships,... Read More

The Man. The Myth.The Legend.

March 6th, 2016

    I was almost done. I knew I had to “pitch” my idea to somebody who had been there before. Someone who had successfully done it. Someone who had navigated this treacherous and unfamiliar territory. I knew just the guy. About a year and a half ago, I decided to start writing a column for About Boulder while I diligently worked on my first book, in addition to several of my own personal blogs. As I neared completion of my book project, I starting to get excited. I knew I had put in the hours and had a very solid foundation built for my entry into the world of authorship. I was proud... Read More

Thanksgiving Yoga: Happy Selves, Happy Cells

November 24th, 2015

The cells in our bodies regenerate at different rates; in our hips, the cells completely regenerate about every seven years. As emotional centers, our hips store a lot of information including feelings, emotions, experiences, and relationships. Seven years. That’s seven years of family meetings. Seven Thanksgivings. Seven years of table time with family or friends. Take that how you will. This could be exciting or concerning news. No matter what the past seven years’ worth of cells in your hips might tell you, you’re always regenerating cells, so you can start creating happy emotional centers... Read More

The Practice of Gratitude

November 17th, 2015

I hear a lot of yoga-related questions throughout the average day: “Am I doing this right?” “What’s a namaste?’ “What do you mean ‘yoga isn’t just a physical practice’?” But my favorite question I’ve ever been asked was beautiful in its simplicity: “What is gratitude?” And my answer is not as simple. Gratitude is an idea and a practice upon which I’ve built much of the last few years of my life. It is an underlying intention from which I live, love, move, and teach. It’s a practice of naming things, people, feelings, and ideas that I am grateful for in my life, and... Read More

I Am So Incredibly Grateful For…..

May 11th, 2015

I am so incredibly grateful for all of my readers. I am so incredibly grateful for the opportunity that I have every day to help people fight for their dreams. I am so incredibly grateful for all of the blessings and opportunities in my life…. These are 3 items that came straight off of my “100 things I am grateful for” list. There are plenty more where that came from and I want to extend a challenge to all of my friends and family to do the same. My mom and I get together about once a month to watch “The Secret”. It is one of our favorite motivational videos of all time. There are so... Read More

The changing of the season – exploring the equinox

September 19th, 2014

Yesterday I spent my morning amongst the flora and fauna of mountain land, tending a beautiful garden of wildflowers and native plants, herbs and roses.  As I spend more time working with the earth and the plants, I begin to feel the cycle of the seasons come alive in me. If you know me, you know I can’t resist a good metaphor, and a change of season is ripe with meaning for our own journey.  So, inspired by the nature of the season, I have been pondering a few questions. We are approaching the autumnal equinox, one of only two times in the year when day and night are of equal length.... Read More
