When I wake up in the morning, I plan on having a good day. It’s something I plan on the night before, the days before, the months before, and the years before. I plan on having a good life, but what does that really mean? It means I want to have more happy days than bad days. So, it’s up to me. Wake up and try to live as happily as I can – simple as that.

Mornings are important to me, and the way that my morning runs, more often than not, affects the way that my day goes. I need my time, I need my snooze, I need my coffee, I need my water, I need my meditation, I need my silence, and I need my space – my space to be alone, to be with myself, to recenter and revisit my spirit.

I want to live my life and be alive, I want to feel connected to the earth, the cosmos, my spirit, and I want to not only live my purpose, but feel it pulsing through my veins. This is my goal, this is my want, and this is my need if I am to be happy. So how do I get there? I listen to my needs, I take the extra steps to give myself extra time in the morning to accomplish all that I need (not want) to accomplish to be at peace when I step out of my front door each morning.

I need to get my blood flowing. And for that, I turn to gentle yoga sequences. Taking the time to clear out and cleanse both my body and mind, through yoga, gives my days more of that life juice essence. And so, I teamed up with Maria Sanders to bring that to you.

There will be days where you want to say no, and there will be days where you are just not into it, but keep going. No, you don’t need to do this everyday, but this week I'm urging you to do what you need to do to make yourself feel alive before you head out of your door to start your day.

I’m sending you lots of love and lots of passion.
