Hi again, beautiful OYL readers… I’m posting this for myself as well as anyone of you who may read it.

Motivation

You see, WE ALL NEED MOTIVATION. Daily. Hourly, even minute by minute! So I’m going to open up my personal (very new) ‘Yoga’ Diary, for you to see here & it’s very honest! I hope it will help to inspire you to a little extra ‘self-motivation‘ for something you want this year.

Each year goes by. Every year (at Xmas-time, I think :( ohhh no, another year I didn’t do my yoga), this is victim mentality. Even WORSE LOL, I get jealous of ‘downward dogs’ >>> ACTUAL DOGS stretching in the ‘downward dog’ posture.  Quite ridiculous isn’t it? Yes hilarious.

So FINALLY, here I am kicking some butt, up it goes! YAY! Practicing yoga & it feels soo good! I’m super busy. I don’t have time & have 100 excuses, believe me. I prepare three loving meals a day for my family, making everything from scratch, juices & smoothies daily, fresh bread, muesli, run kids here & there, work as a model, am writing books, shop in about 5 different places to get all the best prices & organic produce I can… rave rave, the list goes on.

If you want something though, YOU CAN MAKE IT HAPPEN. If you really want it, you will make it happen. 

This is what I really want. It may take 10 years, but to make it happen I’m going to need to practice today, tomorrow, & every other day until it does. Best thing is. Every moment I do it, of every day I make the time for it, I LOVE IT. IT’S SOO WORTH IT.

Personal Goals

Same goes for anything really, what is it that you really want? Maybe it’s to eat healthier, run 3 x per week, learn to surf, horse ride or waterski. Perhaps it’s to grow organic vegetables. Choose a personal goal. One you’ve wanted for a long time & set small, achievable goals. Before you know it you may be growing so many vegetables you have a stall at the farmers market! Who knows? In the meantime you’ll be enjoying yourself.

Inspire yourself by purchasing a nice diary which suits the theme of what you want to achieve most. For me it’s yoga, but I’m also adding other exercise notes to it. Overall, my theme is wellbeing & fitness.  PERFECT ;)

LET’S MAKE OUR DREAMS COME TRUE.
