Had an amazing yogaFLIGHT session with my husband this afternoon. The realization that we have 5 more days to practise our partner yoga moves is hitting home for us both. A busy summer has left us with little time to actually fly and play. So with a deadline of Friday, we have just upped our ante and need to ‘get in the game’ so to speak. It’s time to finesse and synchronize, play and connect. The excitement keeps building, day by day. And the realization of such an astonishing development in the journey towards our dream’s unfolding is so fantastic! We feel very blessed and incredibly privileged.
yogaFLIGHT, yoga, skydiving and Airstream travel. What a heady package this life we lead. I am hoping that through weaving the tales of our adventures, we inspire people to pursue big dreams of their own. The last thing anyone wants to do is get to the end of their life and wonder, “What if?”. I am so blessed to be living this life dream with my soulmate and best friend.
Our 1 hour telephone interview this evening with Judi from the Lululemon advertising design house was actually a whole lot of fun, and very reminiscent of another interview we had with Becky Blanton regarding an Airstream Life magazine article from several years ago. The ball is rolling and picking up speed. It’s hard to believe that only two days ago we received the email from the Lululemon head office stating that they were interested in a partner yoga photo session for their website with both slaDE and myself. A friend from within Lululemon had passed on our names, and from there, we sit here today, discussing the details of an unfolding dream. I have to keep pinching myself. Is this truly real??
In 1936, Dorothea Brande’s recorded these twelve mental exercises. It all comes down the point that we control our brain, our actions, our words.

1. Spend an hour each day without saying anything except in answer to direct questions, in the midst of the usual group, without creating the impression that you’re sulking or ill. Be as ordinary as possible. But do not volunteer remarks or try to draw out information.
2. Think for 30 minutes a day about one subject exclusively. Start with five minutes.
3. Write a letter without using the words I, me, mine, my.
4. Talk for 15 minutes a day without using I, me, my, mine.
5. Write a letter in a “successful” or placid tone. No misstatements, no lying. Look for aspects or activities that can be honestly reported that way.
6. Pause on the threshold of any crowded room and size it up.
7. Keep a new acquaintance talking about himself or herself without allowing him to become conscious of it. Turn back any courteous reciprocal questions in a way that your auditor doesn’t feel rebuffed.
8. Talk exclusively about yourself and your interests without complaining, boasting, or boring your companions.
9. Cut “I mean” or “As a matter of fact” or any other verbal mannerism out of your conversation.
10. Plan two hours of a day and stick to the plan.
11. Set yourself twelve tasks at random: e.g., go twenty miles from home using ordinary conveyance; go 12 hours without food; go eat a meal in the unlikelist place you can find; say nothing all day except in answer to questions; stay up all night and work.
12. From time to time, give yourself a day when you answer “yes” to any reasonable request.
I’ve been waiting, it feels like, FOREVER for this movie to finally come out. Where are my best girlfriends when I need and want them most?? Why in New York, in fact (and California — I miss you)!

I just HAD to post this wonderful ‘Harold’s Planet‘ cartoon … after picking myself off the floor, laughing hysterically!
Just last week I clocked in my one year anniversary working for the Calgary Health Region. Prior to my full-time job here in Calgary, I’d been freelancing as a Web Designer / Videographer / Parachute Packer for the past 14 some odd years and living a life full of personal whim at my own pace, my own hours, and with no one to tell me when to take vacation. This comic TRULY hit home! I miss my old life of the perpetual holiday …. Soon enough, though, we’ll be on the road, guiding and directing our own path through life, Airstream in tow. I’m excited and can’t wait 🙂
