A work in progress


My month of yoga is going well so far! I am two weeks in and am averaging about three sessions per week. I love the feeling I am left with as I leave a class, the strength and power it gives me, and the time it gives me to focus on me. This not only allows me to work on my physical wellbeing, but my mental and emotional wellbeing as well. We all have our own personal issues we are constantly working on, but I feel we all are a work in progress. All you can do is put your best foot forward every single day.

I recently received an email from a friend that couldn’t have come at a better time. Sorry to all the guy readers out there, but this is a girl thing. Here is what it said:

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE …

enough money within her control to move out
and rent a place of her own,
even if she never wants to or needs to…
something perfect to wear if the employer,
or date of her dreams wants to see her in an hour….

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE …

a youth she’s content to leave behind….
a past juicy enough that she’s looking forward to
retelling it in her old age….
a set of screwdrivers, a cordless drill, and a black lace bra…
one friend who always makes her laugh.. and one who lets her cry…

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE…

a good piece of furniture not previously owned by anyone else in her family….
eight matching plates, wine glasses with stems,
and a recipe for a meal,
that will make her guests feel honored…

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE…

a feeling of control over her destiny…
the ability to fall in love without losing herself…

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…

how to quit a job,
break up with a lover,
and confront a friend without;
ruining the friendship….

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW……

when to try harder… and WHEN TO WALK AWAY…

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…

that she can’t change the length of her calves,
the width of her hips, or the nature of her parents…
that her childhood may not have been perfect…but it’s over….

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…

what she would and wouldn’t do for love or more….
how to live alone… even if she doesn’t like it…

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW.. .

whom she can trust,
whom she can’t,
and why she shouldn’t take it personally…

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…

where to go…
be it to her best friend’s kitchen table…
or a charming Inn in the woods…
when her soul needs soothing…

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…

What she can and can’t accomplish in a day…
a month…and a year…

Great advice for every, amazing woman out there 🙂

Ok, sorry guys, sometimes you just need a “girl power” moment. I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!
