The Journey Home – My 30-Day Yoga Graduation

It’s week 6 of this lock down, but the days I’ve been counting more zealously were those at “Home” with Adriene. I had started her 30-day yoga journey on March 21st, a week after the announcement of the community quarantine. I was hooked from day 1, and looked forward to waking each day just to practice. Every day had a special intention, and I was always pleasantly surprised at how they were exactly what I needed in those moments. There was a weekend when I put off Adriene‘s class to attend some live sessions by Global Mala Manila‘s Yoga Festival; […]

By doing so, I had plenty of people to ask about the right procedures or for any updates. Luckily, I’m not alone in this adulting. I have several friends with whom I’ve formed a sort of “Taxes Support Group”, and can confer with regarding this matter. So, […]

I Sold 4 of Our Cars in 4 Hours: Lessons on Online Sales and Letting Go

I have an ongoing struggle with “letting go,” but with more mindful practice, I feel like I made progress in leaps and bounds last year. Those who truly know me can attest to my being clingy and overly sentimental, making it very difficult for me to say goodbye – to people, places, experiences – and to throw things away. The latter may be traced back to both my parents who, for lack of a less pejorative term, are both pack rats. The Surprise So imagine my surprise when I came home from Thailand, and dad casually asked for help in […]

New Year, New Destination!

Thrilled to experience a new place at the turn of the year. Dumping some quick first impressions of Ko Samui, and a bunch of photos from Day 1.
