Everyone has talents. I believe that they should be shared with the world.
I love writing and it is my passion but….writing a blog seems rather narcissistic. It’s all about me, me, me.
I hope I’m not that kind of person but this is the perfect vehicle to tick off some things in my life.
First and foremost this will get rid of the whiny voice in my head telling me “you really should be writing every day.” If you want to be a writer you must write. Simple as that. Never met a writer that didn’t write.
Secondly although my voice is in there somewhere my husband’s voice is (both metaphorically and literally) louder than mine. When we talk about our kids’ moments he keeps saying, “You’ve got them written down somewhere…right?”. I nod and attempt to be better at digging out the memory books for our children. It never happens. (I don’t really want to see that scribbled mess with the stapled in pictures anyhow….Sorry Jules!)
Thirdly I want to share the interesting health journey that I am on. I am voraciously reading blogs and info on what is the best for my body and my family’s health. I have always been into nutrition but the stillbirth of my beautiful daughter Sophia, the Thermomix, Miranda Kerr and a talk by Cyndi O’Meara have really changed my mindset in the last year. An interesting combination of of things I admit.
So this blog is my holding pattern until my bestselling novel is published and at least it will amuse me and hopefully be a nice documentary for my children someday.
Why the title? I believe our every experience would be enhanced by being present in our daily lives. This includes doing the housework, raising our children and going through our daily routine. The more yoga we practice – spiritually and physically – the better we become at knowing ourselves and engaging with others.
