“Follow your instincts. That’s where true wisdom manifests itself.”

“The truth of a thing is the feel of it, not the think of it.”

Stanley Kubrick

Last week Philippe and his Mom took Sagey (age 7), Phoenix (age 5 ), Dakota (age 21 months), and Montana (age 21 months) on a Disney Cruise because A.  I needed to finish my book rewrite after all the amazing change and transformation we’ve experienced in the last six months and with the day-to-day of five kiddos and five yoga studios and two blogs it just wasn’t a-happenin, and B.  I ain’t a fan of cruises or Disney, so everyone won!  Plus my four youngest got to spend precious time with their grama.  Madison (age 14) stayed home with me because she didn’t wanna miss school.

 

While they were at sea our means of communication was email. Here’s one of my favorites:

 

“Cruise is awesome.  It was pirate day today, and we had a pirate party tonight.

 

Montana loves the light fixtures on the boat.  Every time he sees a new one (every 5 feet), he points up at the ceiling and smiles.

 

Sagey almost went on aquaduck slide twice today.  Both times she changed her mind and walked back down.  I said she could trust me, but she said she had to trust her own feelings.”

 

Namaste!

Super-Mom of the Month

Super-mom Kim Cherelli

 

WOW!! Supermom of the month.    I was shocked to say the least when Taylor mentioned she wanted me to be her super mom of the month.  Me?  I never thought there was anything super about me.  I’m as average as average is, nonetheless I was and am honored to be thought of.

 

I met Taylor a year ago during Teacher Training at Prana Power Yoga.  I was instantly drawn to her energy and knew I was in the right place.  I didn’t know why I decided to become a yoga instructor nor did I know what I was getting into.  You see prior to signing up for the 8 week teacher training I think I practiced yoga about a dozen times.  I woke up one day and said “ I think I’d like to be a yoga instructor”  I proceeded to ask my yoga instructor at BSC how one goes about becoming an instructor.  She told me about Prana and here I am a whole year later.  I wasn’t really sure what I was looking for other than the fact I was looking for “something” the something that yoga instructors have.  I’m learning every day and I’m a work in progress but this is a journey and I am excited to see where it takes me.  The teacher training was an emotional and beautiful experience.  As quickly as the thought popped into my head to become a yoga instructor the same happened for my understanding why.  I’m understanding I am where I am suppose to be right now at this moment.  Stress is not as prevalent as before and I’m understanding people a bit better.

 

So, a lil about me.  I’m a single mom of one 18 year old son.  I don’t consider myself any different than the next mother. I never found raising a child difficult because it came naturally to me. .  I raised him simply the way I wanted to be treated.  I always knew I wanted to be a mother. I was 24 when I found out I was pregnant and afraid to tell my mother.  I knew what she would say or better yet the look or her face would tell me how disappointed she was.  Most people know my situation and how my son was the result of an abusive relationship, however I wouldn’t have change a thing.  I had to go through that for my son to be born.  If I didn’t then he wouldn’t have been born and I can’t imagine my life without him.  People congratulate me for being a single mom  my son does too but I don’t think I deserve any special credit.  Putting aside all my heartache and struggles in my life, it’s nothing compared to what some are going through.  I do count my blessings and I feel blessed to have been given this gift of motherhood.  There are those who want children and can’t   I am so very thankful and I can’t say it enough…..It’s truly a blessing.

“where you are at this moment is where you are suppose to be”

Sending love and light to all
