Yoga is a way of giving back. The gift of life. Your body is a temple and if you give in, you will find universality. Yoga clears the mind and energizes the body and one is at peace with oneself and the universe. Yoga gives me a reason to wake up every day. Each day is a creative and positive day, when I'm practicing yoga.
Disclaimer: I think my children are the greatest two contributions I will ever make to this crazy world. But motherhood has not always been apple pie for me, because as a mother I felt responsible for making the pie, and I'm one of those women who would rather face a criminal on the streets than a stove ripe for action.
Do you realize how incredible you are to have gotten this far? You are only as old as you think you are. Now start a new page and enjoy the thought of what is possible. Thinking you can and you will! Go for the reality and clean up your act. You have everything you need and probably more than you need.
Some theorists suggest that this blurred boundary of work and life is a result of technology alone, but I have always felt it's caused by a number of inter-connected factors. Newspapers, social media and even our schooling help promote the need to be as good as or better than the next person. Whatever the cause, work has entered our whole lives.

There has been a wistful sense of time passing through the laundering of my family's clothing.
