On The Fence About Cosmetic Procedures? Facebook Live with Dr. Sandra McGill

So, back to my fun announcement. I had the great privilege of being included in a spring photo shoot of inspirational women in Montreal in honor of Women’s History Month, and met an incredible woman there, plastic surgeon Dr. Sandra McGill.

Sandra and I got into a conversation about women and beauty today. I told her I am choosing to age naturally – I haven’t had any work done to my face or body, but that I sometimes feel like the oldest looking 42 year old around my community. Many of the women I see look truly fabulous – smooth faces, fabulous lips, awesome eyebrows. I have wrinkles around my eyes, cellulite behind my things, large pores and bad skin, but I’m trying, goddammit, I’m trying. I eat well, I sleep a lot, I practice yoga, and I practice good self care. Isn’t that enough? For me right now, it is.

But I am still curious, and I know many of you are too, because you’ve written in that you would like to read blog posts on options available to help preserve your youth and vitality… with a little help. Wink wink.

Motivation Monday Announcements!

Happy Motivation Monday! Also, Happy World Kindness Day!

I am coming off an empowering weekend doing my next level YogaFit teacher certification.

A highlight from Saturday: learning how to replace negative thoughts, emotions and judgements in our OWN lives with positive ones so we can radiate it outwards to our yoga students when they get on their mats in class and then into the world.

A highlight from Sunday: learning the art of surrendering to the universe and having faith that what is meant for us will happen at the right moment (ishwara pranidhana), making the best out of our situation and accepting what is and the concept of being present and in the moment (santosha), the willingness to be disciplined and committed (tapas), letting go of expectation and competition (stay and astray).
