Tell me about yourself

I told her that I was (obviously) a yoga teacher, part time personal chef, blah, blah, blah...is that what I do, or who … Continue reading Tell me about yourself

Sunday musings

Sometimes people around you won't understand your journey. They don't need to, it's not for them. Lately this saying has been floating around in my head a lot.
