inspired. Role Models.

“Dogs are my favorite role models.

I want to work like a dog, doing what I was born to do with joy and purpose.

I want to play like a dog, with total, jolly abandon.

I want to love like a dog, with unabashed devotion and complete lack of concern about what people do for a living, how much money they have, or how much they weigh.

The fact that we still live with dogs, even when we don’t have to herd or hunt our dinner, gives me hope for humans and canines alike.” 

― Oprah Winfrey

One of my favorites ..

Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.

As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and the ignorant, they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.

If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.

Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of heroism. Be yourself. Especially, do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love, for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is perennial as the grass.

Take kindly to the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.

Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world.

Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.

— Max Ehrmann

This video of Briohny Smyth was posted about a month ago by Equinox.  I saw it countless times on my twitter and facebook feeds.  Although there has been some controversy surrounding the environment in which this video was filmed, I still love it.  I appreciate the video for the power, beauty, and strength that Briohny portrays.  The yoga flow and transitions that she demonstrates are incredible as well, but what draws me to be inspired by this video is the peace and calmness of mind that is radiating through her as she goes through the poses. Enjoy!

inspired: the sport of fitness

Crossfit starts this week.  I completed an intro session a couple of week ago.  It was great in the IfeellikeImaydiebutstillfeelawesome type of way.  I have to complete 3 one on one sessions with a trainer before I start attending the classes on my own.  I am excited to see how adding Crossfit into my routine will affect my yoga and running practice too.

Here’s a little Crossfit motivation to get me going!
