Arthur Boorman’s Beautiful Story. Never Ever Give Up.

“Never underestimate what you can accomplish when you believe in yourself.”

This is a very cool story about Arthur Boorman, a Gulf War veteran, who was told by doctors that he would never walk on his own again. He believed them, gained a lot of weight, and gave up. Until one day, someone else believed in him. DDP Yoga (a hybrid yoga workout system designed by Diamond Dallas Page) helped change Arthur’s life in the best way possible.

Not a single gram of…..shall be given today

Please excuse the language on the following image. But I love it so much. Hope y’all are not offended by this one. I got it from Jennifer Pastiloff’s Facebook Page – she is my new obsession. I took her yoga flow class last night and fell in love with her energy and teaching style. Check her out if you live in the Los Angeles, she teaches all around town!! Her blog can also be found here.

I Feel Big

“When I look up at the night sky, and I know that, yes, we are part of this universe, we are in this universe, but perhaps more important than both of those facts is that the universe is in us. When I reflect on that fact, I look up – many people feel small, because they’re small and the universe is big – but I feel big, because my atoms came from those stars. There’s a level of connectivity and that’s really what you want in life, you want to feel connected! You want to feel relevant, you want to feel like you’re a participant in the goings on of activities and events around you – and that’s precisely what we are, just by being alive.”

-Neil deGrasse Tyson

Katelyn Benton & her next Album

I’m proud to say I know this lovely lady named Katelyn Benton, and she is insanely talented. She also needs help with finishing her next full-length album. I’m posting one of my favorite songs/music videos by her, so check it out for yourself and decide if you’d like to contribute! She offers incentives for each amount that you donate, so you don’t end up empty-handed.

Here is Impossible Love:

And here is her link to support her next full-length album:

I’m baaaaack!!!

First off, thanks to you all for not forgetting about me! I tried my best to keep posting pictures whenever I had a spare moment, so hopefully everyone who looked enjoyed them. Needless to say, I had an amazing experience in Europe. We ended up traveling from Paris, to Burgundy, to Gap, to Briançon (both in the Haut des Alpes in France), to Torino, to Zürich, then back to Paris. It was an awesome adventure that I’ll never forget, obviously – I don’t think it’s possible to forget getting proposed to on the Pont des Arts bridge on the Seine….

I am SOOO looking forward to reading everyone’s recent blog posts and catching up with everything. I’m not back to work today yet (jet-lag recovery) so hopefully I can get thru a lot. Yay! Here’s a video that is not only beautiful, but represents the way I feel right now.. 🙂
