~Favorite Pose of the Day~
Today is a cross between Camel Pose because of the amazing detox i felt during the backbend and hammock pose because its a brand new pose i learned today in yoga class! The teacher was all “now arch your back into hammock pose…” and I was all “wtf??”
But yea…I hadn’t done yoga in a week so alot of the poses where giving me some trouble. But camel pose just felt crazy good. I was limited because of the week long break but I felt like this strange high in my head. I feel dizzy and a little nauseous. The instructor said that was the feeling of detox in my stomach chakara. I thought it was because i forgot to breathe somewhere :/
Summer Stuffed Salad
I have been scrapbooking all morning! As a senior at my highschool, we have to make a “Senior Scrapbook” as the last grade in our English class. The scrapbook has to have 14 pages/stories…so it’s taking forever! I keep getting distracted! Maybe it’s the music I’m listening too, or the salad I’m eating, or the blogs I’ve been creeping through..who knows! So after a long time of cutting, pasting, and writing…I deserved a delicious lunch! What was I craving? …everything! So I made myself, what I’m calling, Summer Stuffed Salad! It’s basically a combo of anything I found in my fridge, but delicious none the less! :)
Edamame (shelled, of course!)
I love all the colors and textures! Mmmmm :)
Im considering going on a detox for a few days. My mood and my face have been feeling somewhat off lately… also alot of other things have been on my mind.
It’s hard to plan for the future and be bhuddist about it as well. On one hand you want to look forward in the future and make sure everything goes as well as planned (which they never do in the long run smh -__-) but on the other hand Bhudda teaches us never to be enthralled by earthly desires. Do these desires include jobs and college degrees? Bhudda teaches us what will be will be if it is meant to be, but I NEED it to be a certain way to plan out my life. But Bhudda says never to NEED anything. I can understand that since if you need something, and you don’t get it, your disappointed. Suffering and strife sets in. Its confusing….To find the middle way is to know balance…but should i be so indifferent towards my future? I wish i was meant to spend my days in a temple meditating on my place in the universe, but things aren’t like that in america. I wish i could run away to a far off country…
