I was fortunate enough to go to Maui for a week! a week ago. I have been looking forward to this since March and it was just the vacation i needed. I LOVE vacations where i get to lay around and have no agenda. When i found this 1933 pool on our little gated place i was in heaven. I played here and dipped in the pool for hours, reading, taking pics, doing nothing. Very different from my normal life back in Oakland. In 2 weeks my working life will change dramatically. I luckily got to lay around resting before the change happens. The change is a great one. I have been a teacher at Aveda for 4 yrs and I love my job, BUT, Aloeswood is calling. and i have been WAITING and WORKING 2 jobs for 2 + years full time for THIS very moment and i am going to appreciate every second that goes into creating my little dream. So Maui gave me the time to drift away, do nothing and dream as much as I can right now.... its hard to think and be creative when your busy with work so this was a much needed breather. My main objective to to be healthy, because , without that i cannot live a vibrant life... i cannot work etc.. What that means is everyday i will spend my mornings sweating, breathing, stretching and journaling, AND cooking my own food and being grateful! EVERY DAY!!!!!!! can you believe it! I will soon bring all of this to the Annex and teach morning yoga/meditation classes that will be gentle but have purpose. Im going to put my Christy twist on them and have a mini facial component and some sort of beautiful healthy drink offering as well. I CANT WAIT. 2 more weeks and then i take a mini reboot weekend with a girlfriend THEN August is MINE to create. Aloeswood is amazing and growing. I never knew it would be after all these years that my dream and passion are being expressed so fully.
Hold onto your dreams everyone, never let go.
Peace In and out
