The Societal Pressures of Being Me

Musings of an over-stimulated, over-socialized individual living in an over-saturated world.

Today was rough. Literally on the verge of tears because I am a perfectionist. Worked sucked balls, I didn’t get out at a reasonable time and I’m feeling like the fattest cow in the herd. I know what I am doing. I know I stress eat…and lately I’ve been stressed but happy does that even make sense? I love my new job but the stress level is magnified by 10. It’s more rewarding but I need ME time.
I need to workout and that’s been nearly impossible. Got to by 7pm class at 7:05 so now I’m sitting waiting for the 8pm one. No way I’m leaving. This is my only stress reliever. Still fighting tears but looking forward to zen-ing out.

God help me. Not doing good.

Yoga in nature goes perfect together…


It was a good day.

Love drives me.
Not falling in love,
Or finding love,
But knowing that there is so much love.
Knowing that I am love,
And I can love.

That moment when you are interviewing someone who has been working for as long as you have been alive.

Anonymous said: Hi, I love your blog and you're a huge inspiration to me. My question to you is that now I am hitting a plateau, I even change my routine, shake up my diet and so on. I have literally been stuck with this plateau for a few months now and its starting to get to me. Please give me some good advice to help me get passed this plateau? Thank you in advance. <3


I would evaluate your calorie intake. Are you eating enough? Or have you slacked and started eating too much.
I would also consider introducing a really challenging workout. It can be difficult to increase the intensity of your workouts if you don’t have a structure or a plan. So look into some super challenging work outs like insanity or some bootcamp options.

If you want to kill yourself, kill what you don’t like. I had an old self that I killed. You can kill yourself too, but that doesn’t mean you got to stop living.
