Hi everyone! I hope you had great day. I have a post that will hopefully bring a little sunshine to your week.
First, a quick housekeeping update. Many of you have requested an email option for receiving daily posts. It’s a functionality I used to offer but haven’t in years…until now! I have been working with my friend and tech guru (I would be lost without his guidance) on setting up daily posts through emails and after a couple of weeks of testing…all things are going smoothly!
So if you’ve ever signed up for my email list using the box in the right sidebar of my site that would be the reason you’ve been receiving posts via email for the last week. If you’d like to receive posts via email, use the signup form below and you’ll be added to the list! It sends the newest post out every day at 7 a.m.
NOTE: If you sign up and aren’t seeing the emails, please check your spam filter! Also, Gmail users be sure to check your “Promotions” folder.
And now for a little bit of feel good…
On Saturday night we were scrolling through Netflix looking for a something to watch and on a whim decided on the newest Cinderella remake that Disney released in March of this year.
Since it was late we thought we would just start the movie and finish it later but got totally sucked in and stayed up until 12:30 a.m. and watched the entire thing. IT WAS SO GOOD!
The underlying message of the whole movie was “Have courage and be kind.” (And also to believe in a little magic.) This simple but powerful message is so wonderful and it warmed my heart to know that so many young girls heard it
All week in my yoga classes I have been sharing how much I loved the movie and its message. We’ve been talking about the importance of having courage and being kind from the inside out.
Having courage to DREAM BIG and believe in what’s possible for you.
Having courage to believe you’re WORTHY of those big things and your deepest desires.
Having courage to keep pursuing your dreams when others don’t believe.
Having courage to keep your heart open even when it’s been hurt and broken.
Being kind to your body and treating it well.
Being kind in your thoughts and how you talk to yourself.
Being kind to your heart and soul and practicing self-care and nurturing yourself.
When courage and kindness are deeply rooted inside of you they will appear on the outside and show up in your daily interactions with the world around you without you even having to try. And when you follow the path of courage and kindness, magic WILL happen in your life. You know that feeling when everything just seems to work out and go right? It means you’re in sync with yourself and the universe.
If you haven’t seen the new Cinderella, make it a priority. And try on the “have courage and be kind” mantra this week. It seems so simple but actually putting it into practice feels pretty amazing.
Have you seen the new Cinderella? What did you think?
How do you practice courage and kindness?
