“Hot coffee and cold winter mornings are two of the best soul mates who ever did find each other.”

Terri Guillemets

“It’s amazing how the world begins to change through the eyes of a cup of coffee!”

Donna A. Favors

“Build this day on a foundation of pleasant thoughts.”

“Every new day is a once in a lifetime event. How much more exciting would our lives be if we embraced this truth and lived accordingly?!”

Steve Maraboli

“Each new day greets us with no rules except for the rules we place on it. Greet this new day with open arms and endless possibility.”

Steve Maraboli

While we lived in Europe over the summer I learned many new things, one of which was to drink and love coffee.

 

My whole life I never liked coffee and never drank a drop.  But after drinking it in a hotel room in Switzerland, I never went back.

 

So when we got back to the states I bought a white Mr. coffee machine at target. It didn’t matter what brand it was, it just mattered that it was white LOL.  I like the light, I like sparkles, I like glitter, and I like white.

 

Period.

 

Also, I honestly can’t taste the difference.  Between this coffee and that coffee and this coffee machine and that coffee machine.

 

I didn’t even notice that this Mr. Coffee machine is one that you can self time. So I can set the timer the night before and have it brew at 4 AM when I wake up.

 

In theory.

 

I am a writer and a super-mom of five and a Yogi and a creator and an activist, but good with spatial tasks I’m not.

 

So I handed it over to Phillippe, who ostensibly set the timer so that my hot coffee would be awaiting at 4 AM.

 

It wasn’t.

 

So I just hit that button and off it went.  It brewed up my coffee and I smiled as I drank it, thinking about what a good feeling it is to set up the coffee maker the night before–whether it self brews or not.  I tuned into the vibration of how calming and grounding it felt to put the coffee filter and grounds into the coffee maker the night prior, knowing that something warm and tasty and energizing would come from such a simple action.

 

Your yoga practice is a similar  foundation setting for your day. So simple, yet so profound–and so able to produce a strong foundation on which to build your day, and your life.

 

Have the best day ever!

 

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
