Happy Earth Day 🌏 This was a day when I walked barefoot on an island middle of the ocean. It was such a beautiful day.
I do yoga mostly to connect my body and mind. Although, sometimes is fun to just laugh while doing yoga 😂
My friend was teaching a goat yoga class, couldn’t find a better way to leave my youths years behind me than just being silly and laugh.
April has always been a hard month for me, furthermore this year it’s been the most amazing month. Turned out that I was not average and got accepted to my dream school. I started taking yoga seriously last month and being training with my yoga instructor Stephanie. She has helped me to bring strength to my inner body, but also physically. I have the most amazing but funniest instructor who make me laugh during practice. I’m surrounded by great people who makes me laugh every day. I love waking up next to Juno and Mr B. Since it is my birthday today, I knew that I could get away with hiding Mr B in my jacket, since my friend dislikes Juno and him 😁
Traveling used to be my chance of escaping the reality and just enjoying life. I’m grateful for all the places I went to last year. Las Vegas, San Francisco, Huntington Beach, Pismo Beach, Hawaii, Laguna Beach, Carlsbad, Orlando, Chicago, San Diego and Portland. My thinking today is that I rather do yoga than traveling to new places. Yoga completes me in ways I thought was impossible until it happened.
This beach was filled with birds 🦅
He might not loving doing yoga with me, but he’s still pretty perfect cat 🐈 Weekend Vibes
It’s a beautiful day to practicing at the beach 😄😎
I left my life in Sweden for four years ago, because I couldn’t go after what I wanted there. My grades were awful because of all the sexually abused and assaults I’ve been dealing with since I was young. I was extremely heartbroken when my sister died. I kept asking myself why all this happened to me and the were times that I wanted to give up. A tiny part of me told me that it will turn around one day. My mom went into deep depression after my dad died. I knew that I needed to start a new life. I was depressed for a long time, feeling anxiety and emptiness in my body, furthermore I knew that I couldn’t heal myself in Sweden. I took a chance and went to school in Los Angeles. I knew from the start that I needed to work hard in school, did volunteering and created great connections with my professors. Yesterday, I got news that I got an academic scholarship to the school I applied to. I’m grateful and looking forward to start this journey in the fall. This past year has just been amazing in every way. I live a healthy lifestyle and go to yoga classes everyday. Recently, I decided to move forward with Stephanie as my private yoga teacher. My mind is already feel stronger, even my physically body. I don’t feel sadness, depressed or anxiety, instead my body is filled with joy and happiness. I’m also grateful for Ella and Sam who I known since my first years here and also Jasmine who inspires me to chase my dreams. Stop making excuses on why you can’t go after what you want or becoming a better person. I’ve met people who blamed their childhood for their miserable lives. There are no excuses, you just need to be ambitious to do it and stop feeling sorry for yourself. It takes time and strength to do it, however you will feel great afterwards. Also, people who try to bring you down are probably miserable with their own lives.
Throwback to the last summer. Four different people and heights. We still managed to get a good jump photo 😂
Yesterday was a day that I was tired and in pain. I almost didn’t go to my pilates class. I would rather cuddle with my cat in bed. Anyway, I pushed myself and actually went. It felt great afterwards. I’m training hard every day so I can run my first 5k next month and Spartan race in May.
Working out at the gym was not enough for me today 😂🧗🏽♀️🏋🏽♀️
I do at least one fun activity everyday. It’s important to stay active and just have fun 😁
I like to chill with my cat after working out. I’m pretty happy with the results this week. And, will do even better next week. I went to three yoga classes, one pilates and gym three times. Doing yoga make a big difference in my life. Today, my pilates instructor told me that I’m getting stronger. Just a year I go, I used to weight 104 lbs and is now 120 lbs. I’m proud myself with doing all this work by myself and going to group classes.
A lot of things make me happy 😁 Like climbing in trees 😂
It will be so fun to surf again 😁
The ocean is a powerful tool for me that brings strengths and calm me down. It was also my sister’s favorite place before she passed away. I’m lucky that I’ve lived next to the ocean in 27 years of my life.
A new day creates new opportunities 🌅
