bonjour, 2012!

January 2, 2012 in another year,Baptiste Power Yoga,health,life,meditation,yoga

I don’t usually make a resolution for the New Year.
But this year is… different.
I feel like I got off track last year;
like I was going through the motions, 
but not actually being in the moment.

And in the spirit of beginnings 
{don’t say ‘new beginnings’ — every beginning is new, silly people!},
I’m starting fresh!

Out with the old me,
in with the new!

I’m pushing stress, anxieties, and toxicity from my life for good!

How I’m going to do it:

1. Get serious about myself — Get in
to a daily meditation practice. As someone who is self-described as
spiritual {not religious}, I really need to get my mind set about myself
and life. I see lots {more} yoga in my future, as a way to keep my mind
sharp, and my body in peak shape. Perhaps even a vegetarian diet is in
order; at least for a little while.

2. Spend more time doing real things
— I don’t watch a ton of TV by
any means. And even when I’m watching it, I’m always half-watching,
half-doing something else. I would really like to monitor how much time I
spend tied to my electronics. I would rather be doing real life living. All of this will help me to slow down and be a better me.

3. Find my blog again
— 2011 was a year of absent{-minded} blogging. I wasn’t
focused, and I had so many distractions. My heart wasn’t 100% in it. But
towards the end of 2011, I {re}found the direction I wanted my blog to
go in. Keeping it simple. Keeping it authentic.

I'm pretty sure all three of those are totally doable. I'd like to start meditating again. I need to use guided meditation to get me back in routine. I'd like to find somewhere that does it, as a group. There's so much to learn.

I think a lot of us have some kind of mindframe for blogging in the new year. Good luck with yours!

I am here to be the #1 advocate for daily meditation! I listened to the hype forever about it, and being a buddhist in training, i feel its essential, but until i found my own best meditation practice, this was lost on me.

I cant sit and be peaceful with myself, and having attended several group meditations at akron shambahla, I realized it is whatever you make it.

I have mine while running. My alone time, when I give my mind its opportunity to let go, and be free. I cant put into words how amazing it is.

good luck to you, i hope you find your inner peace in the new year, because it will make feel so much more peaceful..

Can't wait to see what you have ahead for yourself and your blog this year.
