Time.

“One day you will wake up & there won’t be any more time to do the things you’ve always wanted. Do it now.” -Paulo Coelho

Surf. Write. Dance. Play. Explore. Learn. Listen. Feel. Be.

And maybe to do these things, you must be brave. And maybe to be brave you must feel a little fear. That’s ok, I’m learning. Feeling it all is being alive. Why would we want it any other way? Once we feel fear, we get to choose. And we can choose the opposite of fear, which is love. We can write our story and be all in. We can trust in sharing our truth. We can be authentic and alive. We can be love.

The Most Important Thing?…

❤️ “The most important thing is to keep the most important thing the most important thing.”

Yikes…That is a big statement. What is the most important thing? Are we talking one thing? Pick just one? Something I cherish without question- my family. An actual thing I use every day- my swim goggles. Something I am passionate about- yoga. Something I am working on daily- being present…

So what is THE most important thing? And now I have to KEEP it THE most important? Prioritize? Commit? … Maybe I can look at it differently. Perhaps all those big important things, including people I love with my whole heart; perhaps those are only important in the context of the ACTUAL most important thing… Radical acceptance of myself in my life, moment by moment, being love, appreciating all the richness of this one life and the inevitability of its sorrows and heartache.

Because really, there is no substitute for living life moment by moment. The buzz word is mindfulness. To me, it is an awareness that taps me on the shoulder 437 times a day, to say, “This is your life. Now. Not anticipating what is to come; Not remembering what is gone.” … This does not mean I don’t have vision, or goals, or memories of past. But the place in which I dwell, the present, the capacity to BE IN life, allows me to be with grief and with bliss, to be passionate, to be authentic and wholehearted, to show up…. I will keep THAT the most important thing… BEING here and BEING love. ❤️ I’m Love.

Yoga. Practice. Training. For Life.

Yoga. Practice. Training. For Life.

🌊 I never knew that learning to lift myself off the ground would teach me how to lift myself up emotionally. I never knew that holding myself up would make life’s burdens feel so much lighter. I never knew that a physical practice could transform how I view the world. I never knew that an hour on a mat could translate into an edge in all aspects of life. I never knew floating was freeing. But now I know. Now I know.

Strength harnessed through breath…. Freedom in letting go….. Balance in flow…

🌊 I’m Yoga. I’m Love.

Surfing = Yoga in the Ocean

“It’s not the quality of the waves. It’s how we react to each wave (thought or real), that determines our happiness and freedom.” – Jaimal Yogis

“Surfing = Yoga in the Ocean.” – me .

🌊 flow…moving meditation…breathing… salt water…sweat…balance…practice…opening…one moment…one wave…letting go…

🌊 Yoga and Surfing- practices in being present- not rehearsing for the future, not re-hashing the past- riding the wave that is here. Now. Keep Practicing. Happiness. Freedom.

Details Matter.

Happening Now… How you do ANYTHING is how you do EVERYTHING…. Details matter…

🌊 There is power in the routine, the rituals, and the practices that ground and center you. Noticing your surroundings with all your senses on a morning run, feeling your surfboard under you as you paddle for a wave, and focusing complete attention when washing a cast iron pan… details….how you do anything is how you do everything….

🌊 There is also power in realizing there is nothing we can hold onto…Everything that arises eventually dissolves…Life keeps changing…And the small things, the details, are the big things.

🌊 So, let me just be IN it. Surrender the outcome to presence in this moment…Contentment, even Bliss, occur right now.

🌊 BE Here. BE Passion. BE Love. ❤️
