He is protecting me

The constant sadness, confusion, emptiness and frustration inside of me..
I didn’t understand why I kept feeling this way. I felt like I am at the right place doing the right thing but, the emptiness didn’t go away. WHY? 

I prayed, l listened, I followed, and yet something just felt off all the time. At times I felt like I’m reading the messages wrong or maybe God has something else in store for me but I couldn’t understand it because I felt like he lead me this way. He answered me through scripture. At some points things just happened and it felt right. The clients, the studio, the support from some families and friends. The obstacles and downfalls was maybe just the evil one’s plan to make me fail. At least that’s what I thought…

In my post “Broken Wings” I pretty much explained how down and out I felt because of something that happened recently. How I’ve been questioned being a “yoga teacher” as a woman of God. It was hurtful and I felt the people I thought should support me are against me. ( I was wrong) I do feel the approach should’ve been different. I decided to keep praying about it and to only hold on to God and no one else. Last week God sent a other woman of God my way. She asked for health and fitness advice and I felt so good because “yay! God is still on my side. Things are happening”. To my shock she said she don’t want to do ” yoga” because she is saved. My response was “me too and it is not for any other spiritual benefits” but she stood by what she believed is right. It made me think a lot and I prayed about it because I felt like there is something I do not know. I needed guidance from God only. 

Oh how wonderful is Jesus our saviour! I did some research and prayed. The reason why I always felt like I’m doing something wrong is because of the holy ghost trying to stop me from doing ungodly things. To take on a path or journey that is not from God. I came across the story of a former yoga/reiki teacher truth behind yoga. I thank God for this woman of God sharing her testimony across the world.

It feels like a huge weight off my shoulders. I am feeling good because I want to be a obedient child of God. I want to put Jesus first in everything I do in my life. I  plan to keep it that way.

The burning worldly desires almost destroyed me. I am feeling blessed and happy. I do have a regular client now to help losing weight and reach fitness goals. I am still going forward with my fitness journey and still have a lot in my mind. 

If you are a child of God saved by the grace of Jesus I do hope this post and link I shared will touch you. And I pray that God will touch everyone reading it and to get a true understanding.

Let’s Stay Happy and Healthy

A poem of comfort

Hi Everyone! 

Happy Wednesday! 

Today I feel like sharing this comforting words I wrote. I believe this is Jesus in the times of my weaknesses. It is all up to us to listen to him and feel the love he has for his children.

My heart is not heavy, I do not feel sad or frustrated. Today is a good day however, everyday is a good and blessed day. It just up to us on how we will handle it. 

Let’s stay away from negative people and things in our lives. Embrace and appreciate the people and things that add value to your life.

Yay! To more happy days!

My dearest,

Spread your wings and fly; Do not ask why, you have the power to reach for the sky; Oh my dearest why do you fear; I am then always here

See yourself through my eye; don’t be blind to your beauty inside

Rise, Spread your wings and fly; Do not ask why; My oh My..

The road is narrow, The road is wide; make your choice and be wise in making your decision; I have a vision for you, Yes it is true; I believe in you

I love you my dear; why do you fear; as I told you already; I am always here..

Spread your wings and fly my dearest

Jesus

Moving Forward

TODAY

Hold on to God’s promises

In my weakest moments I believe I should hold on to God. It is super difficult but worth it. To hold on to his promises, reading the word and get feeding from the word.

Yesterday I mentioned how my Yoga journey got challenged. I do not understand why people want to make it a religious thing. Keep in mind I’m not religious, I am a child of God striving to be the obedient servant I need to be everyday. I am reborn and accepted Jesus in my life as my saviour from a very young age. I know my relationship with God. We serve a positive God who loves us and don’t want to harm us.

I am not going to stop now, I came this far and plan to fulfill my purpose. I am going to continue building my small business because that’s what I love doing and I am not planning on harming any one by doing what I love most.  I still can’t believe it was made out like “entrepreneurship” “empowering yourself” is a sin.

I am still feeling very emotional today but I am a strong woman who can pick herself up and walk the walk.

Fitness/Health Journey

Everyone’s journey is different. My journey started with weight loss. It became more personal. I wanted to become a better person from the inside-out. My journey is “tuff” (sure everyone’s is) for sure hehehe. I must mention I felt if I can look after myself for my physical needs and desires I can surely commit to spiritual growth when I started. So yes, I did challenge myself through my fitness journey to see if I can be as committed to God as to my worldly desires. 

Questions I needed to ask myself:

  • Do I crave God  more than food?
  • Am I doing this for personal gain?
  • Is this good for me?
  • Am I doing this for people?
  • Is this a healthy choice?
  • Is it only to show off my body?
  • Why and how will this benefit my family
  • Do I understand the process?
  • Do I have the right resources?

We often take on a weight loss/fitness/wellness journey for the wrong reasons and that’s why many of us fail along the road and end up giving up. People still don’t understand that you need to be mentally/physically prepared. People often start off with the wrong mindset. 

The focus need to be on living a Healthy and Fit lifestyle daily without the need to constantly go on quick fix diets. I started off knowing what I want and need. I could overcome so many fears and reach so many goals. There are many days a person feels like giving up but for that was not an option. The benefits outweighs the bad days. I am still learning every day and I love the progress.

To wrap it all again, that is why I decided to share this with others. I decided to study in this direction to help others achieve their goals. It makes me feel good when I can help others. To add positivity to their journey. I do health and fitness my way and decide to do what works for me. There is no change in following the correct fitness principals and on living a nutritious lifestyle.

Let’s Stay Healthy and not give up on each other!

Broken Wings

Today I’m filled with confusion. I am not sure if I can say broken or just feel like a piece of paper in the wind.

I get blown by the wind to whichever side. The moment I feel I’ve found my destination I just get blown again. 

I prayed, I still do..

Everything went so well. I felt like I’ve found my purpose. Everything felt in to place. I felt like God is in this. Now people come around and crush my wings.

My wings was spread, I just started to fly, I couldn’t do it on my own God felt present. The girl with dreams, The girl who has hope, The girl who felt like she’s finally achieving need to take a step back again.

It seems like my Yoga journey is a problem at the moment. It seems like me being an entrepreneur, a woman who wants to empower herself is wrong. God gives us talent he bless us and we need to make use of it.

I want to give some advice to the young ambitious ladies out there. Please do make a name for yourself or reach for your goals while you are in your twenties not married yet. It just seems like the best thing for an ambitious woman.

Today I feel like this, tomorrow might be different. Only God knows.
My message stay the same let’s Dream Believe Achieve

What this Yogini been up to

Howdy Everyone!!

Today I decided to write again. Oh my hat! Why do I always take so long????

So here we go. .

I’m doing very well and things are still going and moving forward. (Entrepreneur life)

I am still very positive and try my best to not be stagnant. I am busy building my website (on my own) and it feels like it’s taking forever! But, I can’t afford a professional at the moment so I need to take my time doing it right before I publish it. I don’t want to make a fool of myself publishing nonsense. At least I do my research and someone with experience offered to help.  

I am progressive when it comes to my home practice and I love seeing myself grow. I honestly want to spend more time on my mat because I feel I can do more. Life happens and I just need to find the balance as my circumstances just feel soooo much more difficult than others ( I know it isn’t ;)) 

So, I am at the studio I rent on Saturdays and I trust and believe God will send more clients my way. As usual my impatience gets the best of me. Being mindful and understanding the process helps a lot. I am doing research on how to up my marketing and I must say it’s quite helpful.
I love getting inspired by others and try my best to stay away from comparison. There are people coming a person’s way trying to compare you with others (very annoying). But, I am a content Yogini and strongly believe in what I stand for.


Thank you for staying connected. I love reading your blog posts and keep in mind… I AM INSPIRED

DREAM BELIEVE ACHIEVE

2018 is kicking off with a Bang!

Hi All! Beauties, handsomes hehehe

I just want to say hello and how are you??

I’m doing great! Very busy as most of you already know. I am so excited, stressed, happy, frustrated, patient, impatient, doubt, fear..  All the emotions a person go through when planning and working towards your goals and dreams.

I’m proud to say I do have a photographer now! @mondrevelensky

I’m also starting my classes 27 January as I found a studio to rent!

My website will be up and running hoping from next week ( just have to) 

Exciting stuff!! God is so good to me!

Not giving up, pushing through, believing, planning, striving all of that is Key!!

Certified Yoga Teacher

Done and dusted…

My long five months of Teacher training are done!! What a relief lol

It was hectic as I am a full time worker, planning a business, wife and mom too. I am doing everything by myself except for my husband and family’s support. At least I finished one goal and can move forward to the next.

I am also proud to say I started with my first paid client and she is happy with my workouts so far. I am focusing on outdoor yoga at the moment. Fresh out in nature and calming. I will be hosting a Yoga and picnic event tomorrow.(my first)

I wish I could leave my job, but yeah this is my path and I just have to work hard and smart. God is having my back 🙂

Yay to Fitness, Yoga, Wellness

Don’t take life too seriously..

Everytime I find myself in my dark corner the words of my late grandpa comes up “my child, you’re taking life too serious” . I was only between the ages of fifteen and seventeen. Today I am a thirty one year old lady and I still find myself in that situation sometimes.

It is a tough journey but I have God by my side at all times.🙏

When I decided to start blogging in 2016, I did it because I love sharing. I am not shy to share my story, it takes a lot of courage and truth. I believe somewhere out there I might touch that one life..

But, (long pause)

I found God through my Health and fitness journey. I feel I’ve achieved a lot the past almost two years. I admit I feel I am struggling a bit with the slow progress on social media but that don’t put me down. I appreciate the people that come along to share and connect.

My Yoga

I am a proud and happy yogi, this past weekend we had an awesome session. Yoga for trauma. We’ve learned so much and it was helpful for many of us. I told our teacher I am still struggling to be still in savasana my mind is too busy and I get anxious. And I must say, I fell asleep after our trauma yoga session Sunday lol

I just love our teachers who teaches us the real value of yoga and how to become really good teachers for our students.

Along with my journey it’s like something just want to put me back all the time. I am getting sick frequently and I developed severe eczema around my underarm area and I got hives. It is actually so frustrating and painful.😢

This picture shows the marks

The one thing I know is that I am nit the girl who gives up. I went to a book review of my aunt’s friend last week and it was so motivating. It showed once again no matter when, what age or how but, your time will come!⏳

And that’s why I believe….

Believers are Achievers

Diagnosed with measles(still positive)

Hi all!

I hope you are doing all good. I’ve been in bed since Monday with measles. But I am still blessed and thankful God is by my side.

I’m just laying here thinking, it is almost December and I will be a qualified Yoga Teacher(exciting stuff).

I won’t be able to attend this weekend’s class but at least I can make up. I am using this time in bed to prep my page, website, research pricing, venues, and many more. Contacted my friends to book them, making sure they know I am getting started now. Good to start with friends so they can be the critics for now hehehe.

Even though I am laying here very worried that I won’t be better by Monday, I am still positive. This

weekend will be a wonderful weekend indoors with my family.

Stay positive what ever challenge you are facing, God never forsake us. Don’t give up on your hopes, dreams and beliefs.

Dream Believe Achieve

MJ

Is it worth holding on…

I decided to befriend them. I made the choice.

In everything I do my whole entire life, they’ve been there for me. In fact, they still are. I can’t help to say or ask myself sometimes if it is worth holding on to them. When anxiety takes over, it’s to go to them because they are so Positive, so Strong. When I am in the dark hole it’s as if I do not want to see the light at the end. I just want to sit and stare at the darkness, punishing myself. Deep inside my friends will always reach out, not giving up on me because we are part of each other.

DETERMINATION

To keep trying, to keep pushing and not give up. No matter how tough it gets, to hold on and keep moving.

Well, I can’t help asking myself sometimes… Why don’t you just give up, stop being ambitious, be like some people who don’t live life but only exist.

But that’s not who I am, it’s not how and what I feel. I can remember from the day I could think and understand, I knew I want to mean something in life. I knew I can be more.

I’ve always had Determination by my side.

MOTIVATION

Mostly Self-motivation.

The ability to do, push and reach something without the influence of others. Yeah, that’s pretty much how it’s been my whole life. However, I must add that I do appreciate those who takes the time to motivate me, especially the ones who sometimes don’t realize it. Sometimes people just say or do something without realizing the impact they have in someone’s life.

I go nowhere without Motivation, it keeps me strong and remind me of my goals.

WILL-POWER

It comes with Determination. When I put my mind to something I stick to it. I know discipline comes with it, and yes, I can be well disciplined. I don’t like failing without trying, I will not set a goal and not reach it. Unless, unforseen circumstances arise and changes needs to be made. I can handle change but, not pushing through is not part of me.

COURAGE

Without Courage none of it is possible. Courage needs to eat, drink and sleep with me. In today’s life, Society, the people… I need Courage. It keeps me focused on what’s my needs, beliefs and priorities. It is not always easy, the struggle is real. But I know in my ♥ Heart, God gave me Courage.

FAITH 

As a child of God, I firmly believe he is by my side at all times. I know he got big plans for me. I just need to have faith, walk in his footsteps and not the world’s.

With Faith comes Wisdom. God wants what’s best for us, but he gave us Choice. If we are focused on the wrong things and don’t listen to the voice of God, we lack wisdom.

It can be hard sometimes. But I have Faith
My Health and Fitness journey is tuff but I love it. It made me a better person. I am a go getter, I am strong. Mentally, Physically, and Spiritually.
