Wow, what a week! These past seven days have been so amazing. Getting to know each one of you in a different light, getting to read so many honest and heart felt stories, and connecting with beautiful amazing people. To say I am grateful just doesnโ€™t seem to fit. This was the first yoga challenge I have hosted and I feel to much closer to this community. I see now why some people do this all the time. Itโ€™s a magical feeling to connect through this square.
Day 7 and final day of #gratitudegivegrow is any seated pose with hand on heart + taking some time for you.
Thank you to my fellow hosts, three amazing women whom Iโ€™ve gotten to know even better and inspire me each in their own way. Thank you to our sponsors, but most importantly, thank YOU! For coming along with us on this journey and for giving and loving with your whole hearts! Love you ALL!

Today is day 7 and the last day the #GratitudeGiveGrow challenge. I just celebrated a cultural Thanksgiving mass and I took a moment to stop and be thankful for my family and everything we have. I am so blessed and grateful to my Lord and Savior who continues to show me his love on a daily basis. #meditation #handonmyheart

Today, I took the time to write my parents to say thank you.
And, those who are close to me know that Iโ€™ve struggled with my relationship with my parents over the years, with expectation and forgiveness. Itโ€™s only in the last year, Iโ€™ve made a choice to let go of what I think my relationship should or shouldnโ€™t look like with them. Instead, Iโ€™ve chosen to have more love and compassion towards them. A few months ago I had a break through moment with my back bends and I did a drop back, months leading up to that moment I hade made a choice to set myself free, forgive my parents and chose love over anger. I feel that setting myself free, opening my heart in my yoga off the mat reflected into my practice. Every time I do a heart opening pose I am reminded of my parents. Thank you for letting me take my time opening my heart โค๏ธ
.
Thank you to this challenge for welcoming the perfect opportunity to write them and tell them thank you, that they are loved and appreciated.

Day 4/7 #GratitudeGiveGrow - #WildThing #camatkarasana + make a love list for someone
_
It's time to open your heart and share the love. ๐Ÿ–คWe see people doing their thing and they must know how good they are and that they are important and powerful and loved...right?! Maybe. But telling them is a sure way to know.
I'm following @trynicki's cue, swipe to the side for some love letters to some people that make a difference in my life. Make yours private or public, doesn't matter. Just share.

Day 5- Put away your phone (Low Lunge)

Catching up on #gratitudegivegrow days 1 and 2 of humble warrior and updog.
For #worldkindnessday2017 I felt more open BEING kind which obviously led me to having more patience with others. I was relatively by myself (and with just my kids) for the majority of the day so didnโ€™t have much outside contact in terms of an act of kindness but I hope to make it up by the end of this challenge to someone in the universe.
As a result of wanting to be more kind and patient, I set my intention to make kindness and patience for the day and hopefully make that a permanent feature of my demeanour. I love that this challenge is making me reflect inwards on a daily basis. โค๏ธ

Last day of #GratitudeGiveGrow (Iโ€™m 10 days late ๐Ÿ˜…) asked us to take 5 minutes for ourselves.
This. So much this. Mindfulness has helped so much in this area but how easy is it for us sometimes to forget it.

Day 6 of #GratitudeGiveGrow (catching up!) brought inversions + Earth love.
Bringing โ€˜Green Sundaysโ€™ into our lives last year was amazing, one of the best decisions ever. I was never the outdoors kind when I was growing up. I had to consciously make myself get out there but I now love these moments so much.

Catching up! Day 5 of #GratitudeGiveGrow brought #LowLunge + put away your phone.
I can only do this on weekends, and not even all the time, as my work depends on my phone. Tiring? Yes. Real? Also yes ๐Ÿ˜ Itโ€™s my reality, at least the present one. However, I have phone-free moments I have set for myself.
One is when we wake up and until the children go out the door on their way to school, and the other is when itโ€™s time for bath and bed. These moments are for them, for me to connect with them, so I cherish them. This didnโ€™t use to happen, so I cherish them more so.

Over the last few days Iโ€™ve changed the way we dispose of our waste. Iโ€™ve started a worm farm/compost, so many food scraps!! Separating our soft and squishy rubbish to take to red bins at Coles and stepped up recycling in general. We went on a work excursion to the tip & I was blown away, here I was thinking I was doing an okay job, I wasnโ€™t but Iโ€™m doing much better now!! Apparently people who recycle โ™ป๏ธ are happier ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธIโ€™m feeling pretty good about it. Day 6 #gratitudegivegrow #reducerecyclereuse #โ™ป๏ธ #forearmbalance #scorpion #practice #forearmstand #inversion http://www.redcycle.net.au/

Catching up on #gratitudegivegrow with day 5...Iโ€™ve put the phone down over the weekend, got myself to IKEA & assembled 3 big chest of drawers, had a huge clear out in the girls rooms and toy area, amazing what gets achieved without so much Insta distraction, sometimes my own little world is right where I need to be. #lowlunge

Today could have easily turned into one of "those" days where I got so caught up in doing that I forgot to take a few moments for simply being. ยท
So, in between hanging the second load of laundry, starting with some dinner prep, not forgetting to give my little man his meds on time, doing the dishes, emptying the suitcase from our trip away ... I took a few minutes to enjoy the sunshine on the front step.
ยท
Connecting to my heart, filling myself up with gratitude for all that is my life.
ยท
And on this last day of our beautiful challenge (even with me being late to the party again), I am reminded why I really wanted to be a part of this one. This challenge brought such an outpouring of love, authenticity, and reflection - from the inspiring hosts, to one of my bestest real life friends @creativeyoganz and a group of amazing ladies that IG brought into my life and who I am happy to consider my friends even though we haven't met (yet) - @brubbish_designs @mom_mi_a @littlegworld ยท

โ €
. โ €
โ €
Day 4 of #GratitudeGiveGrow brought #WildThing #Camatkarasana + make a love list for someone. โ €
โ €
My list today will be for my 8yo.โ €
โ €
A few years ago I created an email address for each of the kids for me to send them pictures, emails on their birthdays and special days, etc. โ €
โ €
I love doing this. I just love emailing them. Even though they don't get to see things right now, I'm hoping one day they'll have all those things to read back and remember.โ €
โ €
So tonight she's getting an email. About love, about her, about compassion, about her courage, about her kindness, about her fears, about her passion...โ €
โ €
As Bonnie said, yes, people might know they're doing their thing and being good at them, but telling people stuff can be so good, for both sides. โ €

Last post for #gratitudegivegrow i could spend a long time like thisโ€”just breathing and feeling my heart beat. itโ€™s a good reminder to feel alive and not just live. Iโ€™m about to nap, itโ€™s been a crazy stressful weekend, my body hurts and i canโ€™t remember the last time i had a good nights sleep. Sitting with my hand on my heart helped quiet the mindโœจ๐Ÿ˜ด #yogachallenge #yogalove #bestill #breathe #live #life #living #freedom

Iโ€™ve been off social media. An unintentional break, but Iโ€™ve been feeling a quieter, inner rhythm of drawing inward through the season. .
I had the most heart-felt weekend.
.
I spent time with my mom and my co-parent and daughter. I called my dad in Peru. I supported @stephanieleyrer in her new business venture, and taught a prenatal class with amazing women chatting and laughing (@fabianadlcr) I connected with some new moms at a birthday party (and one was another prenatal yoga instructor! How random)
.
And there was kindness, laughter and love all weekend.
.
Nothing BIG, no outrageous events... just the little moments of love and connection.
.
What an amazing life. Grateful for the littlest things. .

This entire week I have found myself saying one phrase over and over, every day. THANK YOU.
Finding a quiet moment tonight at the end of an extremely hectic week, with so many emotions circulating, I am grateful for everything; the great to remind me of humbleness and the not so great to remind me of positivity.
I hope you all had a quiet moment to reflect and stay connected with your heart๐Ÿ’œ

To grow as a person, you have to do the inner work, learning about yourself and deciding who you want to be in the world so you can change what needs to be changed and evolve as a person.
This week I was given the opportunity to observe and question how I value, and wish to show up in the world around me + acknowledging my personal growth. .
Today, I snuck out of bed before the kids and I took the opportunity to just โ€œbeโ€ filling each one of my breathes with loving gratitude for my life, this square community.

Day 7: Spending 5 minutes with hand on heart

Catch up but finished! I just as surprised how easy it was to put my phone away. I looked at it occasionally, but I didnโ€™t mindlessly roam Facebook and buzzfeed which I often do without thinking. And spending 5 minutes without doing anything but having my hand in my heart, was difficult. But I am going to try to remember to be grateful for everything that I have and am able to do every single day!

It took a lot to get here.
To sit.
To breathe.
To watch.
It was the most rewarding 5 minutes of my day.
My shoulders let go,
My breath slowed down,
I softened the edges.
Still with my soul,
Grateful for all that I have, am and will be.
Hand on my heart,
Giving myself time and space to breathe.
Eyes closed,
Growing inward. -

Final day of #gratitudegivegrow is hand on heart. I want to share a few words I jotted down a couple weeks ago. There has been a lot of 'girl power' circulating around as of late, I have seen so many shirts that read 'feminist' or 'the future is female' and yes girls ROCK however I don't only want to empower young women, I want to equally empower young men. I have daughters, and a son, I don't want either feeling like a lesser of a person based on their gender. I am a firm believer in equality for all, not based on gender, race, encomic status, sexual preference, physical ability so on and so forth. Let's fight for human rights, animal rights, and a cruelty free living. Lead with kindess and concern for all kind! Thank you to the hosts, the four of you are inspirational leaders in this community of love, you have generated positive energy as a result of initiating this challenge @trynicki @awholestory @betse.y.oga @carrot_bowl_bonnie and hats off to the awesome sponsors @aftershokz @buddhibox @nessarosejewelry @willowandburl #yoga #yogaathome #theoakfarm #animalsanctuary #loveforallkind #humanrights #animalrights

A willing moment for loving kindness meditation...
โ€œMay all beings be happy,
May all beings be healthy,
May all beings be safe,
May all beings live peacefully.โ€
I donโ€™t absorb the doubt of those who see this as naive. I will continue holding my hope for a world capable of so much good.

Speaking of good, I am grateful to the hosts who designed this challenge.

Iโ€™m also grateful my lovely IG besties, @brubbish_designs, @mom_mi_a, and @annasyogajourney joined this challenge with me. Itโ€™s such a gift to have met all three of you through yoga and poetry and to continue to learn at the foot of your squares the diversity and sameness of our lives. You all dazzle me.
I have to thank my inspiring yoga sisters, @livedharma, @saptayin, @stacynelson07, @myfearismystrength, and @radicalgypsy for your creativity, courage, and determination. Iโ€™ve learned so much, in yoga and in life, for knowing you.

Last post for the #gratitudegivegrow challenge. I have had many opportunities today to sit and be silent. I used one of those moments to read. Another to run. Another to lay down with my son. Days like this help to restore my energy.

Wow, what a week! These past seven days have been so amazing. Getting to know each one of you in a different light, getting to read so many honest and heart felt stories, and connecting with beautiful amazing people. To say I am grateful just doesnโ€™t seem to fit. This was the first yoga challenge I have hosted and I feel to much closer to this community. I see now why some people do this all the time. Itโ€™s a magical feeling to connect through this square.
Day 7 and final day of #gratitudegivegrow is any seated pose with hand on heart + taking some time for you.
Thank you to my fellow hosts, three amazing women whom Iโ€™ve gotten to know even better and inspire me each in their own way. Thank you to our sponsors, but most importantly, thank YOU! For coming along with us on this journey and for giving and loving with your whole hearts! Love you ALL!

PS. Yes, I am wearing underwear. Itโ€™s just hard to tell ๐Ÿคฃ

We've spent a week together.
#GratitudeGiveGrow
Together although apart.
Thank you for giving your intentional gratitude that helps each of us grow.
Today, turn in.
Place your hand on your heart and feel your breath, feel your pulse, feel the way your body is soft and be gentle.
Be grateful for the way this shell allows you to experience and explore and love.
As we move into this new week, carry the strength that gratitude in motion has given you these past 7 days.
I am filled by your words and actions.
Thank you for sharing your heart here and making me a better me.
And my fellow hosts, @trynicki @awholestory and @betse.y.oga, thank you for being such supportive, creative, and inspiring friends.

Today is day 7 and the last day the #GratitudeGiveGrow challenge. I just celebrated a cultural Thanksgiving mass and I took a moment to stop and be thankful for my family and everything we have. I am so blessed and grateful to my Lord and Savior who continues to show me his love on a daily basis. #meditation #handonmyheart

Final Day of #gratitudegivegrow and while this picture is not of me in the seated posture with hands at heart center, I felt this would be more worthy of a share as it reflects the #beautifulenergy our fellow #dojisisters shared with one another today through a wonderful #essentialoils #workshop & #restorativeyoga #session lead by the amazing duo @flowwithlo and @mavenmade today @theyogadojo I feel so connected to this group of #superspecialladies and am #beyondgrateful that we have found each other in this space in time. Words truly cannot express the #love & #positivevibes these women emit & share with the world. To them I owe so much #gratitude for such personal growth. โค๏ธโœจโค๏ธโœจโค๏ธโœจโค๏ธโœจโค๏ธโœจ๐Ÿง˜๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐ŸŒ™๐Ÿ•‰โœŒ๐ŸปThank you to the hosts & sponsors of this challenge for allowing me to share my stories & participate in this beautiful experience!

I've missed day 4 of the #GratitudeGiveGrow challenge - or I've been procrastinating on it... I'm not big with words most of the time. And neither is my other half. I know that my love language is acts of service, and him doing something nice for me means so much more than being told in words how much he cares. And I think that is true for him as well. So, we've never had the kind of relationship that was overly affectionate - or at least not to the outside world. But we've been there for each other through some of our lowest lows - and come out stronger on the other side. He's hard-working, smart, and caring. He's an amazing dad. He stands up for those that have less or are treated with injustice. He challenges me. And sometimes drives me nuts. He's not perfect, and neither am I. And together we have grown so much. So thankful to have him in my life. (And he doesn't do Insta, so I will have to pass these words onto him another way.)

The final day of #GratitudeGiveGrow and Iโ€™m so inspired, full, and ready to take all Iโ€™ve practiced and learned off the mat and into my day to day again and again. But todayโ€™s prompt? This one I welcome in everywhere; On my mat, my bed, my time sitting in the car before Iโ€™m ready to brave (school, the grocery store, a run, anything), this is my morning rise, bedtime routine, and anxiety beating tool on the daily.
Today, any seated position, hand on your heart. 5 Minutes. This is beneficial for any duration, but today I really urge you to do a full 5 min. It can be intense and hard to sit with yourself that long, but consider it your space to take this week and integrate it into your heart, hands, bloodstream, and breath. You are powerful beyond understanding; feeling your heart outside your body is a tool to remind yourself of that deep power. โ€ข
Huge love and care to @carrot_bowl_bonnie, @trynicki And @betse.y.oga For being the most incredible women, yogis, and hosts for this challenge. And a huge thank you to our sponsors; @willowandburl @aftershokz @nessarosejewelry @buddhibox

Iโ€™m a giver. And honestly, thereโ€™s nothing more I would rather be. But Iโ€™ve learned it can come with a price, and at times, that the price can be high, if youโ€™re not careful.

If youโ€™ve never read #thelessonofthelamp post(s) by @melissa_hartwig you should. She explains it so much better than meโ€ฆ. But the point is this; Love yourself. Accept yourself. Remember, we canโ€™t pour from an empty cup, and if youโ€™re a giver, like me, thatโ€™s a problem. (believe me Iโ€™ve triedโ€ฆand IT CANโ€™T BE DONE.) Speak to yourself, like you speak to those you love. Encourage yourself. Be patient with yourself. AND remember that if someone doesnโ€™t like your โ€œlampโ€ โ€ฆ. that has nothing to do with you!! (Go read the post and youโ€™ll get it.) Spoiler: itโ€™s CRAZY LIBERATING.

Today is the final day of #gratitudegivegrow with hand on heart in any posture for 5 minutes. I shot this picture outside laying in the snow, just before the sun settled behind the mountains. My kids were playing in the background and my heart was so full for being given this moment. I breathed and felt gratitude for my body, my family, for you, this life, and also for myself. Yes, lots of love for myself.

Day 7/7: Any Seated Pose + Spend 5 minutes with your hand on your heart -

From the very first time I ever did yoga and I'm sure if you've done yoga, you have heard of Anjali Mudra or the Salutation Seal. I use to know nothing about chakras and maybe didn't even believe in them but the more I practiced the more the words of many teachers would echo in my head. It goes something like "let's draw together our palms over our third eye, may we have peace in our thoughts. Then bring them over our lips to remind ourselves to always speak truth and peace in our words. And finally over our heart center, may we know peace in our hearts."
This past week with the #GratitudeGiveGrow I'm not sure if this was intentional but I believe it lined up perfectly to that. Ending it with a seated position with our hands at our heart center. Reminding us to know peace in our hearts and to also look within. Spreading love to others is a win win because it's as much for them than it is for us. You're constantly transmitting energy whether you like it or not. Your energy and actions affects you and everyone around you. You might not know the story behind those on the receiving end. Be the light for those who have lost hope and help those who may have lost their way.
If you've been participating with this challenge or have been reading my post this past week I hope it has inspired or motivated you to do one thing if not more. To spread love, there are many different ways to do it. Just pick one. -

Yesterday, I read something horrific about fox fur farms and it so upset me, I was in tears on and off all day until I went to bed. It feels so hard for me to know what to do with the knowledge of other's suffering and cruelty done to them, especially animals. I feel it all, so deeply violating my own being. We can't unknow what we know, unsee what we see. But we can do what we can with what we have.
This morning, I pulled my fur babies (sugar gliders) out of their cage while they slept in their pouch. I just wanted them near. So we laid down in bed together, their pouch against my chest, my hand over my heart. And we just breathed together. The foxes are still heavy on my heart, and I held them there, too. All of these ones I love, near and far. .

Day 6/7 #GratitudeGiveGrow - #UpsideDown + Earth love
_
One day late posting day 6 but not forgotten. Inversions are a fun way to find grounding for me, practice stability in the core and strengthen the body because we don't want to put pressure on the head and neck especially in headstands. It's a full workout being still upside down.
Yesterday I had a moment to dedicate to stillness and realize how magnificently strong Earth is for us all. It holds every single one of us and always has our back even though it floats and orbits around. Did you ever think of that?! How strong can you be for yourself or someone else who needs your back?๐Ÿ’ช๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ’š

Day 6/7 #GratitudeGiveGrow - Earth service and any #inversion

Started my day with a heart pumping BUTI yoga class thanks to my awesome sister, Jolene. Was a great way to open up my hips & ease the tension in my body from yesterday's long drive. She snapped this pic after class & I'm kind of loving the "ripped" sign ๐Ÿ˜€ My handstand is def a work in progress, but I'm enjoying the excitement I feel when I hold it for even a second or two, or just stay upside down on the wall for a little longer each time I practice ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
For the earth service aspect of day 6, my nephew & I picked up trash along the road on our walk to Grandma's house โค๏ธ๐ŸŒŽโค๏ธ

Day 6/7 #GratitudeGiveGrow - #inversion & earth service โ€ข
โ€ข
Today was one of those days where you wake up and can't believe how perfect our planet is and that you get to walk it. Today I honored the sun, the air, the smells, the colors, the water, the grass and flowers I didn't know were still blooming, and my favorite, giant tree. Sometimes all Mother Earth needs is someone to hang with. โ€ข
โ€ข
โ€ข
Also, donated canned goods and walked the river downtown with a big intention to pick up trash along the way. Turns out the path we took was very clean!

So, this morning, I got to enjoy a quiet stroll through some beautiful gardens, listening to all the native birds and then sitting in the sunshine waiting for everyone else to be ready to start their day.
ยท
At home, I am lucky enough to have a pretty amazing view over the harbour just outside the front door and one of the most beautiful beaches only a short drive away. ยท
Even on our visit to the capitol city, you are never far from the ocean. So, when I found this view on my way to visiting a friend's house, I had to stop for a quick headstand.
ยท
Just taking a moment and taking in all the beauty all around us does wonders for me. And so I try my best to look after this little planet of ours: reusable coffee cups/water bottles/shopping bags... Trying reduce and reuse and recycle where we can. I believe it is those little acts that we can all easily do that will make a difference in the end. ยท
One last night in Wellington before we head home... And I may get around to posting day 4 as well at some point! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Day 6 of #gratitudegivegrow
Inversion and something for the earth.
Today I was still at my daughterโ€™s swim meet. And from being from California most of our pools are outdoors. This meet is notorious for being cold and rainy (and no swim meets do NOT get cancelled if there is rain). But today was glorious. The Sun was shining and it was a perfect day. I appreciated that I could spend a lovely day outside!

When I think of Earth service I think of conscious awareness of our everyday โ€œtasksโ€ and how we connect to the natural objects around us. Rather that is recycling, using less plastic, reusable coffee mugs, cloth nappies, reusable grocery bags I try my best to set a good example for our children. I am human, and definitely could do better in certain areas. .
I am in complete amazement of this photo. We arrived at the beach and we all played on a big washed up drift wood, balancing, laughing, running around while the wild wind whipped through our hair. And, while the beach makes the best playground for any handstand practice I set the phone down and quickly ran out to do a couple handstands and realised later what I had captured. 1. Another 11mo photo bomb 2. The one that made me laugh out loud was the guy walking the beach who just so happened to line up directly under my โ€œthird eyeโ€ holding me up for support ๐Ÿ˜‰

Every part of nature is deserving of our wonderment. If you seek out the sacred in nature, you will find it. And as part of nature, we too are sacred. โœจ#GratitudeGiveGrow

She is magnificent in all her glory. She teaches us to be strong in the storm, trusting the roots that make us unique and powerful. To shed what is no longer needed, and to let it go knowing that new growth will come on the other side. To cry, to pour our heart and soul into every day and every moment. To shine brighter, to give our warmth and love without any expectations, to be the light that compliments the shadows. She is ma, she is mother, the number one warrior and goddess. We come from her and to her we will return. Letโ€™s treat her with the respect and honor she deserves.
Day #6 of #gratitudegivegrow is earth service +any #inversion.
The thing about earth service is doesnโ€™t always have to be a giant act. The small things we do everyday make a difference. We do our best in our household to recycle, we reuse our bottles, containers and very rarely use plastic bags or any plastic for that matter. I was inspired by @awholestory to add trash walks to this daily routine. So, thatโ€™s what Iโ€™m going to do. Thank you Autumn for the great idea.
Speaking of love, I am really enjoying all of your posts for this challenge. Reading them this morning while I drank my coffee was the best. Already Iโ€™ve got to meet some new amazing people and be witness to some amazing stories. Thank you all for sharing so authentically and courageously. One more day!! Check in with the other hosts, @carrot_bowl_bonnie @awholestory @betse.y.oga .
As always, a huge giant hug to our sponsors, @nessarosejewelry @buddhibox @aftershokz @willowandburl

For Day 6 of #GratitudeGiveGrow is about Earth Service. So today i was conscious about turning off lights and not using unnecessary water. Conserving resources at every opportunity. Starting at a micro level is one step towards solving a greater issue. If you โ€œstart by doing what's necessary; then do what's possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossibleโ€. #stfrancisofassisi

Day 6 of #gratitudegivegrow is the invitation to do an Earth service and/or an inversion. I literally cleaned house all day, is that an Earth service!? lol. I love the idea of picking up trash around our neighborhood and lake but that's just not going to happen today. I will say, we do our best to be mindful of the Earth daily, we recycle, we reuse our paper grocery/shopping bags for trash, cat litter disposal, clothing donations etc. and we used to compost but now we just give our pigs all of our kitchen scraps and leftover food, these are small things that can make a difference. Reduce, reuse, recycle ๐ŸŒŽโค hosts: @trynicki @awholestory @betse.y.oga @carrot_bowl_bonnie sponsors: @aftershokz @buddhibox @nessarosejewelry @willowandburl #yoga #yogaathome #inversion #handstand #goatsandyoga #goatyoga #johnnythegoat #theoakfarm #reducereuserecycle

โœจ any inversion โœจ ๐ŸŒ service โœจ
Legs up the wall has to be my favorite inversion. Iโ€™ve dreamed of and worked on doing handstands for years, but in this postpartum season, Iโ€™m not even trying. Also, I so appreciate other yogis that share their normal yoga practice, not just the โ€œfancyโ€ stuff, to remind of us of all the ways we can practice yoga. So I may never do a handstand without support, but hopefully Iโ€™ll always have legs up the wall. ๐Ÿ’š
And on this gorgeous PNW, we are loving our Mother Earth and taking care of our little patch and enjoying all her splendor. .

One of my feeders needed a little attention to fix, so, I used a break in work flow to adjust it and refill it before it gets really cold and food is harder to find for my feathered friends. So relieving to finally fix the feeder - I had to flip upside down! Iโ€™m also making a plan to reduce the amount of waste made around holiday preparations... though I already use my own dishes and cloth napkins, I want to change up the products we use to make food and use as little plastic as possible... since, you know, every piece of plastic we buy will outlive us...

"We're living on this planet

.

Day 6 of #gratitudegivegrow is #inversion + earth love. I enlisted the help of my husband for this funky headstand since hands-free is not in my skills set ๐Ÿ˜‚. But this sign I made for the climate march earlier this year is dear to my heart. .
.
.
For today, I was going to pick up garbage in a section of woods where a lot of homeless people are camped out. It is filled with waste. And I recognize the complexity of the situation, how they have few places to go and no real resources for disposing of their trash (and bigger problems to consider than the environment). How it might not be the best idea to walk in as a stranger and clean up an area they consider home. But neither does it sit well with me to do nothing. So I decided instead to contact our parks department and see if there's something we can work out together, to problem solve. Perhaps a plan to partner with the homeless people in these woods, to provide them with trash bags and a drop off site where a small group of us can come by regularly for pickup. The city might say no, but I'll never know if I don't ask. .

Day 6/7 #GratitudeGiveGrow - #UpsideDown + Earth love
_
Only one more day left! I am working through reading your posts and am filled up with your honest real-life reflections and they way you are supporting others who are also participating in this challenge.
_
For today.
Share some love with our Earth Mother.
In all honesty, today I'm not going to get in a trash pickup, researching the best recycled clothing, swapping my plastic wrap for wax wraps, starting a compost station, cleaning up beaches, repairing eroded trails, starting bee boxes, or planting trees.
With other responsibilities calling me, I WILL take a moment to be IN nature and breathe deeply. I will encourage my children to explore in the natural world so they too can grow up with a desire to protect it. Today this is good. Tomorrow I will do something else.
_
Day 7- Spend 5 minutes with your hand on your heart (Any Seated Pose)

Yesterday, good friends of ours got married, surrounded by beautiful trees and bird song. So, it was pretty easy to put the phone down for the day (except for the occasional check to see if we missed any calls from the grandparents looking after the kids!).
ยท
This morning, I got up early enough to enjoy a little walk through these beautiful surroundings and take a couple of pictures...
ยท
Maybe I will find the time to catch up on my posts. I most definitely want to find the time to catch up on everyone else's posts!
ยท
This was a low lunge for day 5 (I think?) of #GratitudeGiveGrow

Today is Day 6 of #gratitudegivegrow with #inversion + ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ’—. Iโ€™ve lived in the Swiss Alps for nearly 20 years and not a day goes by that Iโ€™m not in awe by the beauty. This picture was taken this Summer up on the high alps. Itโ€™s where I like to escape and breathe. Letโ€™s reduce, reuse, recycle when possible so Mother Earth can breathe too. .

I love #supportedheadstand so this was the obvious choice for my inversion for today's #gratitudegivegrow post. While running this morning I picked up some random trash and on my way into a cafe just a few minutes ago I found more random trash. #earthservice for today

ADVICE FROM A TREE:
Stand tall and proud.
Go out on a limb.
Remember your roots.
Drink plenty of water.
Be content with
your natural beauty
and enjoy the view.

Yesterday was Day 5 of #gratitudegivegrow with #lowlunge and time spent focusing on the HERE and NOW. So, I took a lovely walk through the forest with Cocoaโ€ฆand was taught by the trees. Then, later that night, I enjoyed our weekly #familymovienight snuggled up with warm blankets, popcorn and my boys. Always a good way to end the week. ๐Ÿ’—

Day 6/7: Any Inversion + Earth Service -

Earth service day. Something that everyone should be conscious about everyday. Please recycle but the goal is not to recycle, it's to use less. Ditch buying single use plastic like water bottles, straws, coffee cups, bring a re usable grocery bag, also try to avoid buying too much "packaged food" or go the extra mile and go to a local farmers market. Go buy a re usable bottle, bring your own coffee mug! Small actions make a great impact. You don't have to be perfect and be completely zero waste but at least make slight changes over time. I have an attachment to my water bottle, it's rare to see me without it. This morning I went on a hike before my yoga class and filled up a bag of trash. -

Today's class we had a lot of arm balance fun and plenty of inversions. My arms are beat. 3 hours of yoga โœ…
