Weekends are for no sleep and fun!

The last 72 hours have been a whirlwind of events. First let me start off by saying, if you work hard enough, dream loud enough, and focus on the positive, things do happen. No, they don't always happen overnight, but they do happen. Oh and you will probably be exhausted after.

Friday I had to take my yoga certification practical test. This basically means I had to teach an hour long class by myself, to a class of 2 or more. I had 4 students plus my teacher in house while I taught. I was super nervous and honestly had nothing planned. I had to prove to myself that if I were meant to be a teacher, I could do it without a plan.


I knew everyone who came to the class except one person. It was comforting and scary all at the same time. I kept listening to myself teach, criticizing myself along the way. I was halfway through my class and I wanted to quit. My internal voice chattered up a storm while I tried to stay focus. I had to start breathing and put myself into a more meditative state in order to continue.

I let my own voice try to sabotage my test. I ended up completing my class and passing with flying colors, but my self doubt got to me. It reminded me that I needed to check my self doubt at the door and remember I could do these things. I was training. I was ready. My internal chatter never made it's way out to the open where the rest of the world could hear. I was grateful for that.

I am happy to announce I am now a real teacher. That alone is a great accomplishment.


Now let's continue on with the crazy. We got up super early on Saturday to head down to Pennsylvania for a friends wedding. We also stopped along the way to visit another friend. The wedding was pretty great and I enjoyed seeing some friends and enjoying some good food. We got back to NY at around 11:30pm and I was beat. I passed out immediately and hoped to get plenty of sleep.

I was up early on Sunday to prepare for my essential oils class and for the arrival for my parents. I had a very successful class with lots of knowledge. It amazes me every day the things I can learn. New gifts to share with the world. It's amazing.



 After the essential oil class me and my mom headed to a mad hatter tea party. It is a yearly fundraiser for a local non-profit. We had such a good time sipping in tea, snacking on traditional finger foods, and enjoying conversation.

I am so exhausted today, but can't complain. It was a weekend surrounded by friends and family and that is something I needed.
