“Don’t let yesterday take up the magic of today”...
.
.
Inner Dawn Yoga came up with its name for several reasons. One of them being; each day we get a chance to start over. A new dawn, a new day. Every time we step on our mat it’s the “beginning” again. Yesterday’s practice was yesterday’s practice. You will (and should) feel different physically, emotionally and mentally every single time you practice. You come to your practice with a whole new self. One that is being challenged by all kinds of external and internal circumstances. You aren’t who you were yesterday. Today’s practice is unique and beautiful because you arrive with an entirely different self. Due to a variety of reasons including; what happened at your job, your home life, the time of day, the time of year, the season, your mindset, your emotional state, your moon cycle, your energy, etc etc etc. .
.
The magical thing about yoga is, it’s continuously evolving. Changing. Shifting. It’s never the same and it can always be fresh and new and transformative. You can decide to be slow, still, powerful, yin, yang, meditative, strong, gentle, active or passive. You decide...
.
.
Even if you’ve been practicing for 10 years or 10 days, you can, and in my eyes...SHOULD show up as a beginner. Listen with ears that have never heard before. See with eyes that have never seen before. Feel with limbs and muscles and tissues that have never felt before. .
.
Enter the pose with grace and ease and love of a heart that is new to the magic of a young love. .
.
Open to the Inner Self. Set your intention to be one of a new day breaking. Your blessed chance to begin again. The “Inner Dawn” welcomes you to a journey of self discovery 🙏

Most people that practice martial arts have one goal....to achieve the rank of black belt. The truth is, the real training begins after you reach black belt.

It's like a teenager's goal of getting a driver's license. Do you stop after the achievement or continue becoming a better driver for the rest of your life?

If there were no belt system, no colors and ranks, would you continue your practice?
See beyond the rank. Always be a beginner. Train for life.

I’m taking a pottery class — wheel throwing. I’m terrible at it, but so proud of myself whenever I do anything close to how the teacher explains it’s supposed to be! 💪 I think it’s important to always be learning new skills, to always be a beginner, to always do things that make you uncomfortable. And best of all, today we learned how to fix our pots! I was able to carve my misshapen pot from last week into something cool and much closer to round (last photo). 🎉 Just 5 weeks of class left. It’s going way too fast! #julieloveslearning

Day 20 prompt for #creativebug and Get Messy is: Gather a collection.

Caylee collaged a collection of papers she gathered on a day she spent in The City. Incidentally, she happened to be in the city I've lived near for most of my life, San Francisco!

I gathered the collection of papers I accumulated yesterday, which included the highlight of a shopping trip to Target. Yeah, a typical Wednesday in The Burbs. 😁 Poking a bit of fun at my banal suburban life. 😄

Day 19 prompt for #creativebug and Get Messy is: Brush lettering.

Caylee suggested a background with collaged pieces from the British Library Flikr images. What a great resource! I also included some ephemera from a random pages collection.

My word Discomfort represents how I feel about brush lettering and collage. These are pretty new for me. I do enjoy getting out of my comfort zone though!

Always be a beginner - I really enjoy trying new things, and I hope that shows in my feed. This time: lettering with watercolors! This piece is the actual first one I made, posting because I want to be honest about progress 💙

Days 11 & 12 for #creativebug and Get Messy prompts are: "Today, you are an artist" & "Modeling paste texture".
I have been feeling a bit off these last two days and missed Lauren's demo from yesterday where she shared a page using a cut out of text with a self portrait. I've used the cut out part on today's demo by Caylee where she used modeling paste and a stencil.
I didn't have a stencil so I thought, oh I'll just make my own. I have a couple of pattern books that I've never cracked open, I can just make one easy peasy. Fast forward to at least an hour later and I have a stencil and a squishy mess in my journal. I'm happy to say no blood was shed in the making of this stencil but there was flagrant use of foul language.
So, today, I am a DIY-er.
Not my fave page, but posting anyway because I love learning new techniques and I can see the potential in this.

"Always be a beginner." I love this print from @lisacongdon that sits in the studio.
Artists of any kind, even at the highest level, should always be nurturing and studying their craft. My father, at almost 74 years old, still wakes up every day and picks up his tuba to play the same exercises I heard my whole growing up.
We are never "done." And as humans, that is the best news! We always get to strive for something greater. .

Day 94/100 of #the100dayproject and #100follettflowers.

I just completed my first punch needle embroidery! This is a lesson from @creativebug taught by Arounna Khounnoraj of @bookhou.
It is a bit wonky but I'm pleased as punch with it.🤗 🌹🌻🍃 #punchneedle #rughooking #yarnstagram #alwaysbeabeginner #inspiredbynature #yearofcreativehabits #mrfflorals

Learning to letter. Very shaky and smuggy but practice makes perfect. Thanks Liz for getting me started. #letterme #alwaysbeabeginner

Been on a reboot for the last few days to give my body a bit of a rest and reset after months of all sorts of trips and weird eating.
.
It’s not a detox or a cleanse in that I have 2 freshly pressed juices a day and 3 meals of veggies, fruit and good fats which I love because I can still workout on it (otherwise I’m miserable!!)
.
I’m on day 6 of 10 and even though I miss certain foods I’m loving the extra energy, leanness and vitality. My skin is clearer and I feel amazing!
.
Can not wait to see where I am on day 10!
.
I’ve already decided I’m not going back and to make subtle changes in how I have been eating to help me feel even better than I have, which to be fair was already great.
.
I see my health journey as one where I’m always learning, not one where I’ve reached a destination and know it all.
.
I’m a total learner at heart 💗
