I don't think I am alone when I say that we all want to feel happy, healthy, and with purpose. Back in January I set myself a goal of raising a LOT of money for Uganda. The deadline is near and I have so far fallen short of my goal. I was feeling like I not only let myself down, but that I let down everyone that has been so generous to this amazing cause. Needless to say, I have now realized that my contribution, our contribution, will change lives no matter how big or small!
So ......Thankyou! Thankyou for the support, the positive energy, and for being a part of this never ending journey. If only to send positive vibes and love to people in need, those energetic waves will be felt. Life is so fragile from day to day. I wake up only hoping to give more.
I have until December 15th to raise money for OFF THE MAT INTO THE WORLD if you have any ideas for events. I just hope to bring awareness to people in need.
Have a fantastic week and I wish you love and light.

Full of compassion, children, laughter, and some great yoga!
We raised another $2500! A huge step towards the goal of $20,000. Beyond the numbers.....is the most important part of this whole experience. The sense of community and support on Saturday warmed my heart and really let our true colors shine.
I can't thank everyone enough who came and gave with their hearts. Regardless of the money, we sent a huge amount of positive energy to the people of Uganda and to people who may be suffering anywhere.
We set our intention to make a difference and we have. Big or small isn't the question......every little step is part of the journey!
