Over the past couple of years since I had Russell I've had what my friend Amy and I have termed mystery illness. It's nothing severe enough to sound an alarm over and not consistent enough that you could easily go to a doctor and have them tell you what's wrong. In fact I've been to the doctor and had all sorts of blood tests done to see if anything was out of balance and of course everything has come back normal. I've had my heart checked again to be sure nothing was wrong there since I have mitral valve prolapse which I know can make you really tired if it's acting up. Of course that came back fine too. The only thing that has seemed to help me feel better has been yoga.

When the opportunity came up for me to be able to get some money to support my dream of becoming certified as a yoga teacher I excitedly accepted it. It was one of those moments that you just don't know if you should run around screaming and dancing or pinch yourself to make sure you're not just dreaming. I felt amazed and inspired that someone else would believe in me so much that they would help fund my dream. Of course, being smart, I wasn't funded the entire amount. I would have to put some money towards my dream which helped ensure that I was really bought in and willing to put something on the line for myself. This split made it possible for me to finally take the first step to getting certified and following this new journey in my life.

I hope you'll come along with me on this journey. It's going to be great!
