My friend, Casey, writes these beautiful blog posts straight from the heart every once in awhile and simply calls them “coffee dates”. Like, what would I say to you if we were sitting at a little cafe somewhere sipping our coffees and catching up on life. I just love the idea so I decided to borrow it! If you guys like this post, let me know and it can become a regular thing over here.
If we were having coffee this morning I would tell you how in love I am with teaching yoga! It’s such a surprise, since I never thought I ever wanted to teach, but now that I’ve started teaching I can’t imagine not teaching. It’s such an unexpected joy. I love just connecting with my students and watching them light up in class as they open themselves up to new possibilities that they never thought possible. I think I actually get more out of my classes than my students do! Imagine that.
I’d tell you that I am so blessed and excited by the upcoming Influence Conference this October! I just found out that I’ll be teaching a workshop on the process of getting a book published, and am so excited to be leading alongside a team of such fabulous women, most of whom I have never met but feel like I’ve known my entire life. Tickets are still available and I’d love to see you in Indianapolis in a few months!
I’d tell you that, for as much as I cook, I still somehow ended up eating Greek yogurt and graham crackers the other night for dinner after meeting a friend for happy hour.
I’d tell you that I am so excited and so READY to launch the new ELR redesign! It feels like we have been working on the redesign forever (and by forever I mean eight months) but I promise it’s coming soon. We have a tentative launch date right before book day—September 4th! It feels like I am moving into a whole new house—I cant wait for you guys to see it! It’s killing me to keep the new site a secret like this.
I’d tell you that I am so anxious about my book tour! Of course I am excited, too, but I get keeping hounded by anxious thoughts like….what if no one shows up and it’s just my mom and I?! What if I open my mouth to say something profound but instead something totally ridiculous comes out instead like, “cats have nipples, greg!” It could happen. That would be weird.
I’d tell you that every day I just feel luckier to be dating such an awesome guy. Seriously girls, I don’t know what I ever did to deserve him—I totally lucked out. He totally gets me for “me” and lets me watch all the gymnastics YouTube videos that I want without trying to control the remote control. He builds me fires in July, feeds me tiramisu and always tells me I look pretty even when I feel like a mess. He’s a keeper.
