Happy about nothing

June was a crazy month. I stayed busy…almost too busy, actually. I met a lot of new people, made a lot of plans, taught a ton of yoga, and was seemingly on the go every night of the week — all month long. It’s been fun and great to keep moving and be social. However, I’m ready for a little downtime and normalcy…starting now. Last night I Netflixed it up (with Chipotle….nom nom) and fell asleep at 9:30… it was amazing. I bounced out of bed at 5:00 AM and was ready to tackle my day.

Often when I get too busy, don’t have enough alone time, or if I’m lacking sleep, I get overwhelmed very easily and I’m just not myself. I’ve felt a little “off” over the last week or 2, and have struggled to stay positive and make healthy choices for myself (e.g. “just one more glass of wine” or “mushroom pizza will make this better”). Time to get it together.

I saw this header pic this morning while waiting on my yoga students to come in for my 6 AM class, and I loved it so much. It’s simple but true. Perspective really is everything, when it comes to being positive and happy. Life can knock the wind out of us, or sometimes even seem like “what is the point of all of this?!” Choosing to find happiness in the mundane, seeing the blue sky through the clouds, knowing that bad days pass, life moves forward, and it gets better… Choosing to be happy about nothing, in general, just happy…it’s a good foundation for lots of happy days.


So that’s my focus today. Like I’m wearing Teflon for drama and negativity, I’m going to focus on staying positive, being happy, choosing to see the good, even when it’s not staring me right in the face. Here’s to another happy day! July is already flying by……make today count!


>Words to Live By

>”Sometimes when our life falls apart it is because it is not held together with consciousness, it is held together by illusion, and so it crumbles, and what is left is actually a clearer vision of what is real and of value. So many have found their life path only after what they had formerly perceived as their life crumbles to dust. In other words, it is the illusion of our life which crumbles, leaving reality in its place.”
