Amazing Grace

Before I say anything…this was the color of the world when I looked outside this morning.


I love that.


I started my day yesterday with yoga and actually got through the whole thing, yay me.

This is in contrast to Tuesday  when I got about 10 minutes into it and just didn’t have the energy.

I ran out of energy for everything that day.  I think I have a lot on my mind and it’s taking it’s toll on me physically as well as emotionally.

But yesterday felt SO good and strong and I continue to marvel at the difference yoga can make on my body by just doing 30 minutes a day.

Imagine if I actually went every single day.

To real actual yoga.

And not a crazy ass DVD with Bob Harper.

Hey now..I hear you all judgin’ because it’s Bob Harper.

I like Bob Harper because he’s as high energy as I am and that’s why I can do yoga.

The man keeps it moving.

I bought a Jillian yoga, too, because I imagine she could have the same impact. LOL.

I haven’t tried it yet because I’m just a creature of habit.

Also, pretty sure I couldn’t keep up.

I stopped at Sephora yesterday after work. I’m in desperate need for a good moisturizer and they had given me a sample I really liked and thought I’d buy the real one. If you don’t remember,  finding a moisturizer is especially difficult because it needs to be gluten free and preferably cruelty free, also. Unfortunately they don’t carry the one I wanted  anymore so I picked what I hoped would be a good substitute.  Christmas bonus well spent and moved on through the line.  And what did I come across? This pretty little gem clearly set in front of me to give me a big fat message.

The first message was

Read me…


And the second message was of course:

buy me.

done and done.

I’ve always loved the philosophy brand and today it was a huge reminder why.

Here’s what the perfume says:

How you climb up the mountain is just as important as how you get down the mountain. and, so it is with life, which for many of us becomes one big gigantic test followed by one big gigantic lesson. in the end, it all comes down to one word. grace. it’s how you accept winning and losing, good luck and bad luck, the darkness and the light.

Anyone that knows ANYTHING about me knows that my favorite song in the world is Amazing Grace. And my grace has to be my second favorite word ever.

After Mesopotamia.

I mean, that’s a cool word.

Mesopotamia.    (Mess-ah-pah-tame-ee-ah) I gave you the Ducksters link because it’s just more fun. 

Say it. It has a great rhythm. The moment I heard it as a kid, I was hooked.


I could say it all day.

But grace.  Oh. It gives me a warm glow every time I hear it, read it or say it. So it’s definitely a close second.


I noticed yesterday I hadn’t taken any meds for my ~longest flu ever may finally be over~ illness.

So when I woke up this morning it didn’t take me nearly as long to realize…

my achilles didn’t hurt.

 don’t tell the universe. 

we’re keeping it a secret for a few more days.

Move yourself today.  You will be happier for it.
