July 17, 2012 § Leave a comment
A couple of weeks ago I was doing research and stumbled upon this competition Jansport was promoting to win one of their Superbreak backpacks. I had time, and hope… but little did I know I had luck on my side as well =) Got this email today and found out that I actually won =D Hurrraaayyyy! Thanks guys. G-r-a-t-e Grateful! / This Coors Light ad just… Oh, it cracks me up every. single. night! hahaha. Grateful for the laughs and cheap thrills. Take my breath away *boom boom* / Today, I got rickrolled good! Nice one Dom! 😉 / The moment Kim kisses her bodyguard… a whole new Dash episode I’ve never seen before… =O something to be grateful for… but no one can know!! =O =P
Day 347: Hanging with Sue at the American Club, Finding spare earphones at home, Nabbing the one spare table at Starbuck’s, Green Naked smoothies, The day my printer cable arrived and TriYoga!

Ok, so technically I wasn’t exactly with Sue at the American Club in Singapore… But I might as well have been! 😉 Grateful! Thanks for the time, chica! Miss you! / Grateful I found this spare set of earphones lying on the floor of our living room. My last ones are busted! / You know that feeling when you spot the last spare table at a really busy restaurant or cafe… and your heart starts to race as you look around really quickly to see if anyone has noticed… and then absolutely running for it to claim what is now rightfully yours…? Yea. That. I love that! 😉 / Naked’s super green antioxidant smoothies. I love! Iron in a bottle. Hurray! / Well whatdya know! My printer cable actually arrived! Wehey! / TriYoga… possibly couldn’t get any more different in terms of look, feel, space, mood from Indaba… But there is something characteristically charming about this place. Look at it! =) Just signed up for a 2 week tester to take a whole bunch of Ashtanga classes for a change. Haven’t done a pure Ashtanga class in years! Just something I feel will benefit and strengthen my practice even more. Need to get in touch with those deep down bandhas!! See how it goes =) The body knows what it wants. 😉 x / PS – Happy 4th of July!!! Thank you Leela for taking the time to teach tonight anyway =)

Dear world, today is the summer solstice, the longest day of the year. Many people are celebrating today because of this. I know my yoga studio was offering a special summer solstice event where people do 108 sun salutations as an offering. At first I was pretty bummed I couldn’t make it. I have been practicing at home the last 2 weeks to save money and give myself time to focus on my own ambitions and various other projects in life… what I did not expect was to visit Embody Wellness studio for an interview and be given a 90 min comp class for free. So I got to practice during the summer solstice after all! =) And you know what the best part was? The opening intention was all about… you guessed it, GRATITUDE! I could not help but smile at the wonderful serendipity of it all. And I couldn’t be more grateful. Thank you for this opportunity. Thank you Paul and Anya. It was a pleasure meeting you today. And hopefully this is just one of many encounters 🙂 / Today I am grateful for the 1.5 hrs I got to spend catching up with my momma. Thank you for listening. Thank you for holding back the fears I know are in your heart. Thank you for caring. I love you! / Grateful for the eureka moment at Starbucks today. Talk about brain + *wave* 😉 (still) #futureplanning! / You know the moment you step out of the office and take the first big breath of fresh air…? I love that feeling! =) / Today, I found out why the chicken crossed the road. And it BLEW my mind!!! / Today, I saw momma snail + baby snail eating what appeared to be a worm… So cute. So weird. Mind boggling… I didn’t know they did that… Nature’s little critters… gotta love it. =) / This site… wonderfully inspiring… =) x

Grateful for the amazing weather this evening, and for being able to take my beanbag out onto the roof to capture and soak up this view =) / Grateful for all the traveling I have done this year, and all the miles I have accrued. Because today, I just got me a virtually free flight to New York City. This Christmas is gonna be a good one. I. cannot. wait. =D / Grateful for all our new lamps and mirrors and throws from Ikea. Our home, it just gets better and better =) / Tonight, I was reminded yet again to always, always, follow my gut. Let’s just say I am extremely grateful for the moment I pulled up in front of our house and finally announced ‘We are home!’. Lights, camera, action.

Thank you everyone at work for my birthday pressies! / Thank you, Graham, for the extra free, freeview box! TV at last, hurray! / The Offering Chant, by Lama Gyurme, is without doubt one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard. Forget about trying to understand the lyrics and translation… Be open, be receptive, and the meaning will present itself to you as a very intimate, and very personal experience in the deepest recesses of your heart and soul. Decipher it by feeling, not by thinking. x
