My original thoughts today were about how I love stopping, stopping what you ask? Everything! I love changing up my exercise because otherwise we hit a plateau, your body gets used to it, and the calories do not burn. Also food, recently I had realized I overdosed on coconut and have to give it up for a while, even though it is supposed to be good for everything. I love stopping when I teach Yoga, and tell everyone to tell everything in their life, see you in an hour. I love being fully present, stopping everything else in my head when I teach a class or when I am at a birth as a Doula. My favorite stop is Shabbat, sundown Friday to sundown Saturday when I can be fully present with my husband, kids, community and my spirituality.
So as I just sat down, and thought about Valentine’s Day, the perfect title came into my head, STOP! In the Name of Love, and if you do not know this, please do yourself a favor and enjoy the video below.
I know for so many people Valentine’s Day is special, and I hope you are enjoying it, I wore red today so people that love it will smile. Personally I feel like love is every day, and my husband and I are from different countries, so we did not grow up with it, and it is funny now that for kids its all about sweets. In my Yoga class today I was talking about self love, how it is not selfish, it is self care, we have to find ourselves fascinating, and invest in our health and balance.
