25 Ways to Radically Love Yourself Right Now

When February rolls around we put a lot of attention on to others, and that’s great, but what about yourself? Giving to others is a form of self love because what you give you receive, but what is it like to truly be wildly in love with ourselves? Not in the egotistical kind of way but in a way that is unbound and free of others expectations (even our own), to live bearing our hearts and souls, and to tell our fears to fuck off. This Valentine’s Day, and so on, give yourself the gift of self love. 1. Let go. There is…

Throw Your New Year Resolutions Out the Window

It’s a new year, so new goals, new intentions… or maybe old ones from last year revisited? Just because it’s a new year doesn’t mean we throw last years goals out the window or does it? So what if you didn’t accomplish what you set out to do at the beginning of last year. There are no resolution police. The only person you have to be honest with about it is yourself. But why do some resolutions not stick? We all know that setting new goals at the beginning of the new year is a lost cause. Fuck new year…

One Life, Two Perspectives

Perspective One: My life sucks. I’m broke, I hate my commute to work, I’m too tired to workout and I never have time to do anything I want to do. I got kicked out of my place in Ocean Beach a few months ago and now have to find another place to live but the problem is that everything is too expensive and landlords have stupid rules about dogs. Now I have to live at my manfriend’s mom’s house in San Clemente. It’s great and all but I have to drive 45-60 minutes to work everyday. It sucks gas out…

Just Because Your Ego is Talking Doesn’t Mean You Have to Listen

It’s been awhile since I’ve stepped into a Yoga studio to practice. I’ve been teaching for a year now and have only done my own personal practice at home or watched videos on YogoGlo, but I have recently been wanting to be back into a studio setting. Today I went to a studio that I had never been to before. I didn’t know any of the teachers or students. I was an unfamiliar face and I liked it that way. I knew that, before I even stepped into the studio, that my mind would be comparing my teaching abilities with…

Home Is Where the Heart Is

We’ve all said it at some point or have heard someone say it, “home is where the heart is” but have we ever really thought about what that means? I started thinking about it when I saw a sign that had the catchy little quote written over somebody’s door and after spending the summer not having a permanent living space, I really started to think about where home really is… and home IS where the heart is of course. Our hearts sit inside our chests, in our bodies and that truly is where home is. I’ve realized over the last few…

Bringing Burning Man Home

Bringing Burning Man home does not mean the several layers of playa dust that coat every single thing you own, a pair of boots that you will forever call your “burner boots”, or the dozen of well crafted gifts that you received for just being awesome. Bringing Burning Man home means something much more than that. When I told people I was going to Burning Man for the first time the usual comment I would get was “prepare to have your mind blown!” Well I was prepared… maybe even too prepared for my first burn. I have way too many…

Let Go, Buy Less and Save the World

  I had an opportunity to clean out the garage of house I used to live at. At that house, there was a bunch of stuff left behind from past roommates and old crap, I had a U-Haul truck and thought… why not? So after two trips to the dump and one to Goodwill, filling the truck to the top both times, I cleared out the garage. Which is totally awesome in every way except for the fact I felt terrible about throwing so much stuff away. When I was at the dump I couldn’t help but be saddened by the amount of crap people throw…
