it's the little things...

Sometimes it's just the small things in life that make everything worthwhile. You don't always need to make things extravagant. But everything takes time and patience, something no one seems to have anymore.

You love someone; you open yourself up to suffering. That’s the sad truth. Maybe they’ll break your heart; maybe you’ll break their heart and never be able to look yourself in the same way. Those are the risks. You see two people and you think they belong together, but nothing happens. The thought of losing so much control over personal happiness is unbearable. That’s the burden. Like wings, they have weight. We feel that weight on our back, but they are a burden that lifts us. Burdens which allow us to fly.

So many amazing performances last night at the gala. I’m happy I got the opportunity to go. And the night started out in heels, I promise. #girlproblems #gala #dizzyfeetfoundation #celebrationofdance #sytycd #dwts #stepupallin (at Dorothy Chandler Pavilion)

Apparently, I’m really good at riding the bull. 😜😜😜 Awesome night out with my coworkers. Might actually miss them. #jra #nightout #thirstythursday #bullriding #saddleranch (at Saddle Ranch Chophouse)

Sunny Yogi’s Guide to Headstands: Inversions do take a lot of time, so don’t be discouraged if you can’t do it! I would also advise this to do this by a wall incase you need help balancing :) Good luck! 

Step One: Child’s Pose

Start out in child’s pose.  This pose is great for lengthening your spine, and giving it a nice stretch before you go into an inversion :) 

Step Two: Get on your knees and forearms, clasp your fingers together. 

Build a strong foundation for your headstand! When you clasp your fingers together your elbows will slightly splay out.  Ground your hands, and elbows to the ground. 

Step Three: Place Head in Palms.

You want to put the part of your head in your palms, where it start to curve to the back of your head. I really hope this makes sense. Try to put your forehead on ground and roll the head rest of the head to fit the palms.  If this still doesn’t make sense, play around with your head positions and find a positioning that is supportive. 

Step Four: Extend out your legs.

If you are a beginner, make sure you have this step down before you continue on with the rest.  When you extend your legs, go on your tippy toes and straighten out your back.  Your back should be perpendicular to the floor.  Usually for me in this pose, when I’m on this step, I can feel my body trying to find it’s sense of balance.  

Step Five: With control send one leg up. 

Again, if you are a beginner, you might want to practice this a little bit. Make sure your core is engaged. 

Step Six: Slowly lift up other leg. Find your balance! 

Use this step to make sure you are properly balanced. Make sure your arms and core are engaged.  Make sure your back is straight, and your head and neck feel comfortable. If not, get out of this pose, you don’t want to hurt yourself! 

Step Seven: When ready, straighten out your legs! Extend! 

Engage that core, make sure your elbows and hands are rooted.  When you get here you might sway a little bit, but don’t be scared. Just try to use your legs/feet to try to balance you :) 

Good luck with this pose! Remember, don’t be discouraged if you can’t do this pose.  Do NOT try to force your body to do something it’s not ready to do.  Core exercises and arm exercises are a great way to get your body ready for inversions. 

Feel free to send me pictures/videos/ comments of your progress. Also let me know if you need further help! Namaste :)

Dear Future Soulmate,

I’m clingy, but I’ll never admit it. I’ll check my phone every 5 minutes to see if you’ve replied to something I’ve drafted numerous times in my head. I’ll get anxious when you don’t answer me back for a long time, and I’ll think to myself maybe you’ve had enough of me. Yet when your message finally comes, it doesn’t matter what you’ve said because the simple act of replying assures me that you’re still mine. At least, for the time being it will.

I’ll get jealous a lot, but please don’t misconstrue it as me tying you down. I won’t get jealous because I want you all to myself, no. I want you to be able spend time with family, friends, and everyone else in between. I’ll get jealous because maybe, just maybe you’ll find something special in someone else, as you did with me. I’ll be weary that maybe you’ll look at someone just as how you look at me, or your heart will begin to wander somewhere else.

I’m insecure, and it’s of no fault of your own. When I say something a little negative about myself, it’s not a cry for attention nor is it me wanting you to disagree with me. It’s me just being me. Before you, I’ll probably never imagine in a million years that you’d be mine. So by virtue of the fact that we’re together makes me even more insecure. But let me make something clear, I won’t be bagging on myself all the time. I know what talents I possess, what I excel in, the aspects in my physique that work in my favor, and so on. I’m just more vocal on the things which fall in the opposite categories.

I’ll possess many faults, and I’m not looking for you to fix them. I think when I finally meet you, I’ll be more accepting of these faults than I am now. All I’m asking is that you accept them with me.

I know this letter seems to be focusing on the negative things about me, and it’s quite a bit to take in… so let me make a change of pace.

I’ll always love you. When we’re finally acquainted, and we finally begin to personify the definition of love for one another, I’ll never need another definition. I’ve told myself countless times that I would never cheat on someone because I know what that feels like. I’ll love you more than I love myself and I know that isn’t too great but that’s just how I am. I’m going to fall in love with the way your smile dances across your face every time you see me, I’ll fall in love with the way you lose yourself in the things you love, I’ll fall in love with the way your voice fluctuates depending on how you’re feeling, I’ll fall in love with the way you say my name, and I’ll most definitely fall in love with so much more. I’ll study everything about you, I’ll remember the slightest details about you and your life. I’ll know what you look like when you’re upset without you having to say a word, I’ll know how you like your coffee in the morning, I’ll know how long it takes you to get ready before we go out, I’ll know most of the trivial things about you and the rest I’ll learn along the way. I pray you’ll be able to do the same as well.

If you’re still reading, and you haven’t run away… I’ll probably be sitting across from you looking insanely nervous and insecure. I’d be sitting with my legs folded under me on the chair anxiously waiting for your reaction. On top of that I’ll probably be ready to burst into tears of happiness or tears of sadness.

So to end this letter, which my actual soulmate will read once the time comes… I’d like to say thank you. Thank you for giving me a reason to live again, thank you for proving to me that love really is meant for me, and thank you for being my reason to be alive.

Love, Your Future Soulmate
