Probably Not What You Think

It's not really my pride that's in the way, it's my fear. But regardless, it can't come from me anyway. I know that from experience. I'm living in a goddamn fantasy land. I keep having to snap myself out of it. My thoughts run wild. Shit, my dreams run wild. Be realistic, Rick. Some things are worth hoping for. This isn't one of them. It can't be helped. I want a spotless mind. Only one of two things could help me now. 

But other then that, I can't complain.

In any event, sometimes during self reflection you realize how crazy you are. And maybe you reflect on others as well and realize that they're crazy too. The fact is that everybody is nuts. But you find friends and lovers whose crazy meshes with your crazy. And sometimes you want crazies to mesh, but they don't. And that's just life, ya know? You can't win them all. But don't give up, don't stop trying. Because you'll find what you're looking for. Idk why I'm so optimistic on the subject, but I believe that everyone will find what they're looking for.

I know: wtf?

So Come On

The Atlantic was born today and I'll tell you how... The clouds above opened up and let it out.

Sometimes, man, it just gets to me.

I find that there's no use in denial with yourself. Why try to fool yourself when you're the only one in your head? Honesty is the best policy, but it starts with being honest with yourself. I think it's powerful to be able to recognize what you truly feel and what it is that you truly want. I suppose there are exceptions in extreme circumstances such as with Kubler-Ross's stages, but even that ends in acceptance. So acknowledge what you're feeling, acknowledge what you want. And if what you want is to no longer feel a certain way, then you take it from there. Admitting the problem is the first step to recovery (sorry for all the cliches, but it's true!). Food for thought.

I feel particularly enlightened in this very moment. I read just one sentence and I instantly felt different. I won't share the sentence though, it's personal. And I'm 99% sure that it wouldn't have the same effect for you readers anyway lol. Here's to hoping that this lasts for a loooooong time!

Patrick Beach

I attended an incredible arm balance workshop with Patrick Beach at Green Monkey in Miami Beach this past Friday. I'm so thankful to have had the opportunity to grow in my practice and to learn from someone so humble and amazing in their practice. I'm loving yoga more and more everyday, and I'm glad to be able to share it with so many of my friends. Peep my Instagram to see the things that I've been up to (@rab_boarder) and peep Patrick's IG as well for some amazing inversions (@patrickbeach)!
