This past week has been a whirlwind of ups and downs, and I cannot believe how much happened in a week! From running the Mammoth Half to starting CPY yoga teacher training, to moving into my new apartment, my mind and body have been working hardcore, but I’m so glad I can take a step back and recognize those moments of joy and bliss.
So how did God fill me up with joy last week?
Sunday – Thinking back to the Mammoth Half Marathon still brings me incredible joy and I have been on such a running high since the race; I am so impatient to run my next half, America’s Finest City!
Monday – Treating myself to Starbucks Coffee and two Specialty’s cookies; I have definitely been avoiding spending money on coffee as much as possible during the work week, but every once in a while I treat myself to some Starbucks and I felt that a Monday after a mini vacation was a great time to do so ;)
Tuesday – Waking up early and deciding not to go to CPY 6 AM yoga, but choosing to go to Pannikin Coffee and Tea in La Jolla to sit, write, and enjoy their delicious muffins and coffee before a day at work
Wednesday – Hands down, the start of CorePower Yoga Teacher Training. Stay tuned for a post on my first week of training!
Thursday – While in the process of packing, I found a gift my friend Sara gave me (and the rest of our FC family who shared witnesses) after SEARCH 29. It was at this retreat that I first allowed myself to be vulnerable and share personal stories about myself, and having that experience gave me the courage to start this blog!
Friday – A run after work in Mission Beach before the sunset.
Saturday – Going to the Little Italy Mercato and Caffe Italia. After 5 long weekends full of plans, I finally was able to return to one of my happy places, the farmers market paired with coffee from one of my favorite shops. It’s good to be home.
This week I am taking vacation, and I am eager to spend a lot of time reading, writing, sleeping, and spending time with friends! Happy Monday!
