Creating a Seriously FUN Life
>> FLASHBACK to my First Post on the Wellness Blog <<
Problems arise in that one has to find a balance between what people need from you and what you need for yourself.~ Jessye Norman
Describing oneself is not easy but I 'll give it a try: I'm an overachiever who's always doing and planning more than I possibly have time for; a bit of a lunatic at times who loves a physical or mental challenge and wants to sample every bit of living I possibly can in the blink of an eye that represents this life. At the same time, I'm a hopeless nerd who enjoys researching and writing; a voracious reader and lover of a good, long nap whenever the opportunity presents itself. As a true Gemini I inhabit the full spectrum of my personality and can swing between cherishing solitary time to demanding the center of attention from one day to the next.
For the past 19+ years, I've worked as a Flight Attendant traveling the globe with a coke in my hand and a smile on my face (most days). Although I have the good fortune to see a great many places and experience different cultures, I don't have the budget one has while on vacation to indulge in endless adventures lest I cut into my monthly grocery and mortgage funding. So, I fit in as much as I can during my 24 hour layovers and count my lucky starts for all the adventures I DO sneak in on the cheap.
In addition to my flying career, I'm also a fitness and yoga instructor and the Co-Owner of Seriously FUN Fitness along with my husband, ThomasR. I teach some of the classes we offer each week and am the Director of our Yoga Program. In addition to achieving my 200 Hour RYT, I've also completed a Trauma Sensitive Yoga Certification to help bring the healing power of yoga to those suffering from PTSD, traumatic brain injury and chronic pain. One of my side gigs is serving as an Ambassador for the YogaFit for Warriors Program hoping to bring trauma sensitive yoga to the masses.
My hope is to share with readers my thoughts and insights about travel, yoga, meditation, healing and self-acceptance.
