bi-coastal movement in october

29 Sep

[read time: 1 minute]

much to my own surprise, on the tail end of my summer trip to LA, i decided to take the big plunge and relocate out West.  it is a huge step for me since i’ve been an east coast renegade for the past 10  years.

september brought me back to DC to wrap up loose ends. and in october i’ll be off again (via the road trip of a lifetime) to continue sharing my yoga and coaching goodness with my growing West Coast yoga family.

it is with both excitement and sorrow that i teach my last few yoga classes and see my last few local coaching clients in DC and turn my focus toward new beginnings in LA.

even more than the miles of beautiful beaches and the ridiculous number of granola varieties, it is fantastically refreshing to experience real living in a place i get to choose.  as i told my monday lunchtime yoga class: i love LA and LA loves me, too.

the only thing i find more miserable than austere dietary regimen is perhaps the subsequent self-degradation and the ensuing guilt that follow the inevitable “infractions”.  such intransigent behavior can only lead to more suffering.

to circumvent the aforementioned train wreck, i offer the thoughts below as you ponder options when the next moment of weakness arises. Continue reading

"tell me who's watching?"[read time: 5 minutes]

this morning, i was fondly reminiscing about halloween night in Adams Morgan.  [cue cheesy soap opera flashback visual effects and music]

i was perched in the front window at Amsterdam Falafel, which is, quite possibly, the best place for people watching [Tryst: a close second] on the entire 18th St. NW strip. while enjoying a scrumptious bite of my falafel, a woman passes by in costume as the money you could be saving with Geico.

my LOL snapped me out of my daydream and back into the reality that i have got to finish this dang post on money that’s been hanging out in my drafts… looking at me, tapping it’s foot.  hmmmm… yeah, kinda like that stack of bills from the commercial!

one of the biggest challenges facing people in search of fiscal abundance is not actually the making of the money, but rather the battle in their heads about money.  Continue reading
