Full Days Calm Mind

Will you help shape your city?  Just like everyone else my days are full to the brim.  Today is no exception, the odd difference is that I had to take a PTO day (Paid Time Off) from my job at Lincoln in order to get everything done today.  I've decided not to move aimlessly through my busy days, I will accomplish what needs to be done as mindfully and presently as possibly.

This full day started with my lovely bunch of yogis at 5:45am, an early morning class is one of the most perfect ways to start your day.  If you happen to be a morning person come try it and see how centered you are the rest of the day.

Then instead of rushing off to Lincoln Financial for a long 8 hour shift like I normally do on Tuesdays, I had the privilege of representing Greensboro Community Yoga at the Hospice and Palliative Care Center in Greensboro.

I was sharing information about the studio with their beautiful and caring nursing staff.  Hospice is AMAZING! I was glad to share information about the studio with them.  Very productive morning.

Then I was off to the next appointment of the day! Shape Your City Luncheon with Synergy!






We are a group of young people who want to make a difference and influence the city we live in.  We want to make things happen because we LOVE Greensboro.

Do you love Greensboro?

We were getting together to share ideas about what we want to stop happening in Greensboro, what we want to see continued and what we want to see start happening.  It was a neat sharing of ideas, I can't wait to see what grows out of this lunch.

100 of Greensboro young professionals who want to make a difference

Much more left to do as it is not yet 4:00pm, and as I move through my day I'm calling on my yoga and meditation practice to keep me centered and grounded.  I'll move through these activities with a calm mind that will keep me ready to take on the world, or maybe just these few tasks.  It helps that I've got a massage in less than an hour, self-care is just as important as everything else.

Greensboro is BEAUTIFUL

IMG_0993 I can't help but notice all of the little things that make my city beautiful.  Do you ever stop and notice.  Right now the azalea's are in full bloom.  The city is warming to spring and it makes me smile.


That is all for now Friends:) xoxoxo -Alisha
