I am feeling the effects of what it is like when your whole life is altered by forces outside of your control. And i know I am not alone. .
Today, every being on this beautiful blue-green rock is feeling change. Some big. Some small. We all are going through the motions of an earth experience. It’s all ok. There is nothing that needs to be fixed. The only thing to do is to lean into it and feeeeeel it. You have to feel it to heal it. Or so I have read. .
This morning’s sunrise is helping me remember that the sun continues to shine even when there are clouds... To think the good thoughts today & to be in this moment, and only this moment... & to let the light that I know lives inside of me, shine, shine, shine. .
The last few days have been good but they have also been busy... lol
Got the gym almost pieced together and Turbo and I have been really hittin it hard lately.... #NoPainNoGain
Gotta get lookin even better though to really show off my new shirt I got from @sarkisrevilo based on his art collection of beach creature trash art... such a cool way to make awesome art and clean up the beach at the same time!
Saw a really kickass moth the other night and I went to hangout with my four legged friend Buster-Brown, but I then I got into a Cat-Fight with KiKi... what a bully!
Then it was back to work cutting grass on the Orange Bullet... that thing is awesome! But not at awesome as my new Inkkas, gotta finish this weedeating so I can hit the town tonight in those bad boys!
For some reason these photos of my dad have me reminiscing about my days before yoga.
My birth father, @stanwoodman shared with me the beautiful gift of practice. It was during one of my first couple visits to CT that I walked into his first yoga studio to take class. I was around 14 years old when my journey practicing yoga began. It’s crazy to think that these days I have my 200 hr certification, that we’ve traveled to India together twice, and that yoga is still a very important part of my story. ✨
I am thankful for this man today and every day. He has taught me so much about what it means to practice, on and off the mat. He has always encouraged me to be my best self, and I can never express my gratitude for the love and support that he has given me in every aspect of my life!
I can’t wait to see what the future holds💕

So had a convo today about why I would pay more money to buy something in the store versus ordering it online - couldn't quite put my finger on the reason as I babbled on about it. Today at the grocery store, I realized I enjoy the human interaction. I enjoy smiling at strangers and seeing them smile back. I like the interaction with the humans at the deli. I like talking to people in the health foods store about what supplements they like or their favorite tea. I like people - we are all so fucked up sometimes and inside our own heads. It's refreshing to just be nice to a stranger and them be nice back. For a moment in time it doesn't matter who they are or who you are, what they like, who you voted for, how they spend their free time.. for a moment you just smile for no reason except to be nice to a fellow human. We are all one - and sitting at home ordering things online makes me forget that. So, thankful I had that conversation and later realization today. .
What is sacrifice? For me, sacrifice was spending the last year and a half working a job I wasn’t too fond of in hopes of saving enough funds to buy my land.. It drained all the good feelings I had.. I was only able to do what I truly wanted for a very short window after work and then the two days I had off during the week.. And often times I would find myself too miserable to even muster up the energy to actually DO the things I wanted to do.. I’m only 30 years old and I’m noticing gray hair.. NOPE! So, I built up the courage to continue on that path I blazed several years ago & I left that job.. Today, I spent 5 hours working on things that I wanted to.. I started and finished a commission piece, I made a sheath for my personal hatchet, I finished putting up flyers all over downtown Portland for the upcoming @risingappalachia show (Tuesday 5/22 at AURA), I’m spending the weekend in Vermont for a day of music and a day of permaculture activism (( thank you @cometolifemusic )) & next week I’ll start my new gig working at a hostel in the mountains specifically catered to those folks walking the path to freedom on the Appalachian Trail.. Today I feel GOOD, tomorrow is gonna be BETTER and this summer is going to RULE!! Thank you, Universe! Thank you to all of YOU!!🙏🏼 #grateful#sacrifice#unlearn#rewild#skills#primitive#music#permaculture#hikers#at#goodvibes#handmade#handcrafted#imakestuff#idostuff#ibelieveinthegoodthingscoming#maine#madeinmaine#thisiswhyilivehere#thewaylifeshouldbe#thepathtofreedom#getoutstayout#blessed#bornagain#peace

I started reading out loud to the basil #evangelinavigilpiñón poems and she bloomed 🌿 I found this #evangelinavigil book in my twenties at the Joliet Book Market and it has been a true gift to find again in my 30’s 💖
