Dogs! but Remi and Bronson are allergic—so SOL.
In short: to love and accept myself my and my surroundings exactly how they are.
This has been my hardest lesson to learn, easily—and the one I’m constantly still practicing. I’ll elaborate more on this one once I gather up the courage. It’s a doozy.
Other than that, I’ve realized that my disease to please the people around me for the first 27 years of my life were….wellllll…they were dumb. Dumb, yet neccessary for me to grow.
Definitely here, in San Clemente.
We’re less than a mile from the beach…so that’s a huge reason why I think it’s so great. But it’s also just a wonderfully sleepy, family town. There are kids everywhere and it feels like most everyone knows eachother here. This is the most ‘homey’ I’ve ever felt—we LOVE it here!
No, I have zero help. I WISH I had a little help….a babysitter, and nice neighbor, a family member close by…..ANYTHING!
One thing I’ve learned living where I do is that good childcare is hard to come by. …Unless your willing to mortgage your house–then it’s easy!
I loveeeee my gym time.
It’s the only ‘me’ time I get in the day, so I utilize it well.
Lately I’ve been loving the Kayla Itsines BBG app. It’s call Sweat With Kayla. On non Kayla days, I like to do sprints on the stair machine (these are brutal!), or jog. Somtimes I go into the aerobics room and just do handstand, cartwheels, and other cool tricks for half and hour and call it day. HA!
…you think I’m kidding, but I’m not.
But more than that, I go to the gym to clear my head. After I finish my 30 minutes or so of excersize I spend the rest of the time in some dark corner laying down/stretching while listening to audiobooks or podcasts.
THIS IS WHY I GO!
I meditate, do my prayers, plan my day….EVERYTHING. I do this all at the gym.
It’s definitely more for my mind, than for my body.
