The simplest of things motivate and carry me through my day! I tell myself all the time fitness is a faith walk. Its walking out  everything you believe in, living it out every single day!

One of my coworkers at the gym is currently doing a personal Bible study. What’s beautiful is that  each morning over the past several days, when I’m dragging my exhausted body in the gym to work out at the whee hours of the morning before my day gets hectic, I’m met by the following inspirational verses on our break room message board! I just started noticing them at random one day! Thanks Austin! So sweet of you to share the faith so openly, let’s me know I truly have angels among me in this process!

I am a firm believer that God always sends a messenger when you’re on the path to your destiny,  not saying the journey will be perfect or easy, but He always sends protection and encouragement to carry you through! Think about the context of #FootPrints poem!

These message board posts are God’s footprints carrying me through, giving me strength to keep pushing forward! Blessed to be a Blessing!  Read and Be Encouraged!  I will be adding more as he continues to share each day, so stay tuned!

So, my yoga practice isn’t perfect,  sometimes I fall down.  Just like in real life, when you fall, bumps, bruises, and all what matters most is whether or not you get back up!

The following images depict my journey back up after a nasty spill in my practice back in June! The toe is all healed up, but the significance of this accident was that it occurred just a couple of days before I was scheduled to begin my first official job as a yoga teacher! Determined not to postpone my first day on the job, I bandaged that foot and babied my way back to the mat, continuing to practice for hours each day before my first scheduled day of class, even went to class the day before my scheduled class to practice with one of my soon to be colleagues and favorite yoga teacher. Needless to say I taught that first day with a band-aid on my toe and I’m glad that I did. It showed me just how strong I am and how much I love practicing and teaching yoga.
