Today I was supposed to be in Argentina.
I had to cancel my trip due to sickness.
But It’s OK.
It’s all about perception and attitude.
Because I have other things to look forward to and be thankful for.
Thankful to be able to get out of bed.
Thankful to sip my first cup of coffee in over a month.
Thankful to be sharing this day with my parents and sis.
Thankful to have food on my plate.
Thankful to be able to do a restorative yoga practice.
The list goes on.
Happy Thanksgiving 💛
Looking forward to a day with family, tons of vegan food, a spin class taught by my fiancé’s sister, and having already finished most of the cooking! ••
Grateful today and every day. Happy Thanksgiving! 🍁 ••
The self is the witness, all-pervading, perfect, free, one consciousness, action less , not attached to any object, desire less, ever tranquil. It appears through illusion as the world. - Ashtavakra Gita

Happy Thanksgiving to all of my US followers! .
Yesterday I took a rejuvenating gratitude flow class @homegrownyogawr We spoke about gratitude and O thought how beneficial it is for our bodies, minds, and society. It’s not measured in how much you have to be grateful for, the beauty of it is found in the search. Searching for the little things to be grateful for in life is where the beauty comes in. Like the way my daughter grabs my face with both hands as she forcefully plants a kiss on me. Or the way my son will laugh just because others are laughing. Maybe gratitude is found when you realize that you don’t need a ton of friends, but just a few truly close ones? Or that moment of stillness at night or the early morning when the rest of your home is asleep. .
For me, I’m finding gratitude in so many areas of my life, but the one sticking out at the moment is the growth I have experienced this year. I have grown as a woman, a mother, a doula and a friend. I’ve learned, and am continuing to learn what I need in my life and what I don’t. I’m learning to be grateful in the chaos. I’ve grown in my business and will be having not one, but two amazing collaborations this next year! I’ve gained amazing friendships with women who I know I can 100% be myself around. I’m thankful, grateful, and blessed to be where I am right now, in this present moment. ........
Tagging a few of the ones who have really been a part of my growth! Love you all. ........
Happy Thanksgiving y’all! We’re grateful for our beautiful world 🌎 full of adventure, beauty and a place for YOU to grow & expand.

Follow 👣 @consciousvibrancy (CNN) A statue of a sitting Buddha that made its way from a temple in China to a market in the Netherlands revealed an extraordinary secret -- a 1,000-year-old mummified monk.
The mummy was discovered, encased in a cavity in the statue, when a private buyer brought it to an expert for restoration. It's unclear when or how the statue was removed from China.
But it wasn't until a team of researchers and scientists did a CT scan -- a comprehensive three dimensional x-ray image -- did they discover the mummy's organs were missing. "We thought it would be lung tissue, but instead we found little scraps of paper covered with Chinese characters," said Vincent van Vilsteren, an archaeology curator from Drents Museum.
The mummy was found sitting on a bundle of cloth covered in Chinese inscriptions, revealing its identity as a Buddhist monk called Liuquan who may have practiced "self-mummification" to prepare for life after death.
The process of self-mummification is a known tradition in countries like Japan, China and Thailand, and was practiced over a thousand years ago.
The elaborate and arduous process includes eating a special diet and drinking a poisonous tea so the body would be too toxic to be eaten by maggots. The few monks that were able to successfully complete the process were highly revered. "We suspect that for the first 200 years, the mummy was exposed and worshiped in a Buddhist temple in China... only in the 14th century did they do all the work to transform it into a nice statue," said van Vilsteren.
The statue is now housed in the National Museum of Natural History in Budapest and will move to Luxembourg in May as a part of an international tour. #Consciousvibrancy

One day she finally grasped that unexpected things were always going to happen in life. And with that, she realized the only control she had was how she chose to handle them. So, she made the decision to survive using courage, humor and grace. She was the Queen of her own life and the choice was hers.” ~ Queenisms™
Let’s face it. Stuff is going to happen. Life is going to happen. But we get to choose how we respond. And, in many cases we get to choose to impact life through the daily actions, words, deeds and choices we make.
Here’s to choosing more joy, more happiness, more love and more fulfillment in the coming year.
