Had such an amazing time last night at the Maxwell Football Clubs 80th Annual Awards Gala! I left feeling incredibly motivated and inspired by the extraordinary awardees, attendees and honorees at the event. To accomplish what these athletes have done takes an incomprehensible amount of perseverance, dedication and resilience. It was invigorating to be around people who have taken their natural talent and put in the grunt work to accomplish what they have and I believe that it serves as an ideal model for how we all should be leading our lives- to find where our passions and talent collides and doing whatever it takes to manifest it to our full potential. Thank you @baldynfl for allowing to be your plus one and experience this incredible event!
Happy International Women's Day =) Feminist isn't strictly a person who actively does work for the community, it is any woman who takes charge of her own life and becomes the superhero of her own story. She is a role model and serves as an inspiration for the world around her simply by taking care of herself, she gives hope to those who may be facing similar struggles because she proves that it is possible the be triumphant against whatever battle you may face simply by choosing to not take no for an answer. So in owning your life, you are actively helping your community.
Three years ago today I posted this: "I knew that I needed to be grounded and I searched high and low for a grounding source but always came up short, yet the answer was so simple-I needed to get back to my roots to get grounded. India-my birth place and everything I was searching for was in my culture and it's crazy that it took my so long to get to this point. Yoga theory teaches us that right knowledge is simple but our ego is what complicates everything and this is as simple as it gets. But I don't think I'd do it any other way-if I didn't face all the shakiness I would have never appreciated or even understood the stability I have now. Patanjali says true growth requires conscious effort, that is the only way one can plant the seed and visualize their own growth. So I guess what I'm experiencing is true growth and I must say, it feels absolutely incredible especially because I'm earning it. It's like my personal treasure hunt for my life's purpose. I finally feel like I'm getting closer to it." This was literally days before I would find out I had MS, little did I know just how much more difficult it would get but despite that this euphoric feeling that I felt in that moment has yet to waiver- if anything it has intensified and I've never been so proud of myself and honored to be chosen for this type of journey. MS may have been a hard hit down but it has awakened a warrior spirit within me that I didn't know existed and for that I am extremely thankful. People wait their whole lives finding their passion and purpose where mine was put right in my lap and I would go through it all over again knowing that this would be the end result. Every day is still a struggle but every day is still absolutely spectacular and I am excited for what's to come =) #msawarenessmonth #WeAreStrongerThanMS #holistichealer #yogi #kerala #yogatherapist #multiplesclerosis #happiness #silverlining #optimism #joy #growth #positivity #motivation #inspiration #hope #faith #god #love #destiny #dharma #chakra #reiki #pranichealing #beautiful #mssociety #nationalmssocietycleveland #simplicity #lifelessons

When we went to Mathura, we stopped to have lunch in one of the village houses and I saw how interesting their process of cooking was so I decided I didn't want to just eat because this was a prime opportunity to learn something new so I decided to get in on the fun. One of my favorite parts about traveling is not just to see new things but to completely submerge myself in the environment to experience a way of life completely different mine and connect with people living such unique lifestyles that are alien to me yet realizing we all still share common ground and that to me is the most special thing about life. That no matter how different we are, we are basically all the same. #thoughtfortheday #spirituality #oneness #zen #spiritualquotes #india #mathura #happiness #happythoughts #soulconnection
