We’re headed back to Maryland tomorrow
to celebrate my father-in-law’s birthday and visit him in the hospital.
He’s still recovering from double pneumonia and we can’t wait to
see him and the rest of the family. I’m also looking forward to escaping the 90+ degree weather.
I’m totally envious of those feeling the nip in the air that
suggests Autumn is near. But, I know that when winter
comes around, and we’re experiencing beautiful weather while others are
scraping ice from their windshields, I’ll be thanking my lucky stars for

I won’t be able to teach my Beginner’s Flow Yoga class tomorrow, I had
to get someone to sub for me. Being a yoga teacher is unlike anything
I’ve ever done before. The bonds that are formed with people are so
genuine and intimate that when you have to miss a class, you feel like
you are letting someone down. So, naturally when you are not able to
teach, you want someone who will connect and give your class the best
experience possible. Luckily for me, there are a bunch of instructors at
Green Monkey to choose from but there is one in particular that is my
go-to choice. Her name is Valentina and she is a newly minted yoga
instructor with the sweetest personality. She’s committed to her craft
and works toward being the best version of herself every day.
this Wednesday’s Random Act of Kindness, I decided to write Valentina a ‘Thank
You’ note and give her one of my favorite yoga books. I love
gifting books from my collection. What better act of kindness than to
give someone something that has had a positive impact on your life?
the moment for your soul this week and find something you can give away
from one of your collections. Attach a card telling the person what they mean to you and how you hope they may benefit from the gift. It's a great way to connect and share a special moment.
