Caitlin Turner  Journeying through the endless possibilities to live a life that I love, then sharing it all with you. โœŒ๐Ÿป๏ธโคโ˜€๏ธ๐ŸŒด๐ŸŒธโœˆ๏ธ๐ŸŒŽ๏ธ๐Ÿ™ˆ info@gypsetgoddess.com

This was my attempt at a hollow back handstand, but due to my non-existent upper back flexibility, it looks a little funny. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ
In my mind, I felt like I was hollow backing my heart out, and that my shoulders must be 6 inches behind my wrists. ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป
However, looking at it now, I see that my upper spine is still totally straight, shoulders stacked directly over my wrists. ๐Ÿค”
But THAT is the beauty of yoga. It doesnโ€™t matter how the pose looks, it matters how it feels. ๐Ÿ’—
I FELT like I was doing a โ€œperfectโ€ hollow back handstand, because actually, I was. It was just MY perfect, rather than someone elseโ€™s who might be more open than me. ๐Ÿ˜Š
Remember this the next time you compare your asana practice to someone elseโ€™s. Your poses may look completely different on the outside, but most likely youโ€™re both experiencing the same sensations on the inside. ๐Ÿ’—

Hi! This is my face, these are my eyes, and if you look closely, you might be able to see my soul. ๐Ÿ˜Š
Itโ€™s not always easy for me to look directly into the camera lens. I often get insecure, and then I make weird nervous faces... or I just close my eyes. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ
But every once in a while, when I feel comfortable enough, Iโ€™m able to let the camera, and whoever is behind the lens, truly see me. ๐Ÿ‘
This was one of those moments, where I felt comfortable enough with myself, and @aubrymarie behind the lens, to let my soul be seen... and sheโ€™s a real looker. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Pretty sure I flashed a few people during the making of this photo... but I feel like it was worth it. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜œ #notsorry #yourewelcome

Working harder everyday to make my work feel like play, and I feel like Iโ€™m succeeding. ๐Ÿ˜‰
There are days where I actually fantasize about working a 9-5 job and having my life be more routine, make more sense, you know? ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ
But this week with @revolve has been reminding me how lucky I am to be able to do what I do everyday. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป
When you have a great day, the kind that reminds you how much you love your life, make note of it. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป
Then the next time youโ€™re having a down day, remind yourself of that wonderful day, and how grateful it made you feel. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป

Going to parties alone is pretty high up on the list of my biggest fears. If I go at all, I usually carry a ton of anxiety with me and donโ€™t last very long. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ
Someday Iโ€™ll overcome this fear, but for now, Iโ€™m so grateful to have such epic wing women as these lovely ladies. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘ฏโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ’—

I love hiking, but I donโ€™t do it often enough here in LA. There are so many great trails, but I usually forget about them until someone invites me to go hiking. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ
Thanks @lovewave and @Revolve for getting me out on the trail on this beautiful Tuesday! ๐Ÿ‘Ÿ ๐Ÿ˜ƒ #revolvearoundtheworld

New mantra: I AM ENOUGH. Who I am is enough. What I do is enough. What I have is enough. ๐Ÿ’—

In this increasingly virtual world of ours, I find that itโ€™s important for me to take a step back from social media sometimes to regain perspective and get re-inspired. ๐Ÿ’†๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ
.
This most recent step back turned into a few steps back, and then all of a sudden it had been 2 weeks. I guess I just needed some time to myself. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ
.
During the last 2 weeks, I lived like I hadnโ€™t lived in a long time: freely and without concern for how to best capture my moments. I spent time with friends like @acrowithjon, and enjoyed being more present to my life and the people around me. ๐Ÿค—
.
It was pretty blissful. So blissful, in fact, that I vowed I wouldnโ€™t go back to posting until I felt renewed. ๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ
.
Then this morning I woke up, and felt ready to start sharing again. It was a beautiful reminder that when your soul cries out for a break, TAKE IT. You and everyone in your life will be the better for it. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป

Makes me think of that moment, in the airline safety briefing, where they tell you to secure your own oxygen mask before helping others. If you pass out from lack of oxygen, you canโ€™t help anyone, so itโ€™s best to secure your own oxygen first. ๐Ÿ˜Ž
.
Sometimes I forget this fact, wait too long to take care of myself, to listen to my own needs, and then I metaphorically start suffocating. Do you do this too?
.
If you feel like you need a break from anything you do regularly, and youโ€™re having trouble giving yourself permission, I say: DO IT. ๐Ÿ’—

Just finished hiking with my boo! Not sure if sheโ€™s ever been as grateful for A/C as she is right now. I think we both have a love/hate relationship with cardio. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿถ๐Ÿ’—

#tbt to flowing in the mountains @wanderlustfest Tahoe. Iโ€™ve been to a few Wanderlusts, and Iโ€™ve always had such a fun time making new friends, more deeply connecting with old friends, and learning from their lineup of amazing teachers and speakers. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป
.
If youโ€™ve been wanting to experience a Wanderlust Festival, but havenโ€™t had a chance to make it yet, youโ€™re in luck! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
.
They also host awesome 1-day Wanderlust 108 events in lots of different cities. These events are a great way to have a blast and get a taste of the @wanderlustfest vibes. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป
.
To find out if/when a Wanderlust 108 is happening in your city, or to buy tickets to the LA 108 happening on 4/28, head over to Wanderlust.com. See you there! ๐Ÿ’—

Iโ€™ve been thinking a lot lately, about how living in this image obsessed reality of ours can skew our understanding of whatโ€™s most important, and make it easier than ever to fall into the nasty game of comparison. ๐Ÿ˜’
.
Iโ€™m certainly guilty of letting this happen sometimes, and I can attest to the fact that comparison really is the thief that steals joy. โ˜น๏ธ
.
I naturally tend towards feeling somewhat insecure, and as much as Instagram has added to my life in positive ways, itโ€™s also added to my insecurities. ๐Ÿ˜
.
Thinking back on my life pre-gram, I realized that Iโ€™ve never spent as much time thinking about the way I look, and the way my life looks, as I have since I started seriously focusing on Instagram as a job a few years ago, and itโ€™s starting to make me feel very tired of it all. ๐Ÿ˜ด
.
Donโ€™t worry, Iโ€™m not tired enough to leave this platform, but I am ready to change my thinking on the whole thing. Rather than being so focused on my face, my hair, the shape of my body, the lines in my yoga pose, or any other external feature of myself, Iโ€™m working actively on shifting my focus to the beauty on the inside... and it feels amazing. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป
.
In a world that constantly fosters insecurities about the way we look, itโ€™s time that I made a new goal for myself: MAKE MY HEART THE MOST BEAUTIFUL THING ABOUT ME. ๐Ÿ’—
.
Now, whoโ€™s with me? Comment if youโ€™re tired of the struggle of comparison and ready to love yourself from the inside out. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Today is my best friend Neilaโ€™s 14th birthday! ๐Ÿ’—
.
Sheโ€™s always been there for me day in and day out. She saved my life one time, and she has travelled around the world with me many times. ๐Ÿ’—
.
She is an expert little spoon to my big spoon when we sleep, and Iโ€™m so used to cuddling with her at night, that I have to travel with a little stuffed animal to cuddle with if I canโ€™t bring Neila. ๐Ÿ’—
.
I always joke that she makes friends more easily than I do, and she even has her own friendships with my friends, separate from me, (just ask @wirthit, who always says hi to Neila first when she arrives.) ๐Ÿ’—
.
These last 14 years with her have been the best of my life, and Iโ€™m grateful for her everyday. ๐Ÿ’—
.
Happy birthday Neila! ๐Ÿถ๐Ÿ’—
