Sarah’s view…

September is Yoga Month! It’s a great way to educate people about the health benefits of yoga and to help inspire a healthy lifestyle.

This month we will have guest bloggers contribute their ideas, and this week’s guest is one of our favorite people,  our ‘marketing department’…the fabulous Sarah Emmett. Happy reading!

“Let no one dictate your happiness”

I try to live everyday with this quote in mind.  We all stumble through bad days. Traffic is bad. You over commit. Wake up on the wrong side of the bed, etc, etc. Heck, a lack of coffee can set me down the pity path.

But a day shouldn’t be measured by a single instance or one lousy mood. Rise above the tiny obstacles. Remember: for every side-crow, there are 100 almost side-crows. Laugh each time we fall.  Encourage one another to try again; that’s why I love our back row on Thursday nights. We laugh, we cheer, we giggle. And we feel part of something.

Our ‘MD’

We must remember the effect of a smile, a kind gesture or laughter. Together we can change the world, or at least our wonderful community around Main St.

Our Beautiful Bay

Happiness is tangible in the Summer. The coconut smell of sunscreen wafts in the air, shorts, tees and flip flops are the uniform of choice,  and the mood  and smiles are usually carefree and easy. Be it by the beach or in the backyard, life seems so much easier. Is it because we simplify, and take joy in the little things?  Or is it because we take the time to be in the moment, get plugged in and recharge?  That we learn, fleetingly, to love the life we live.

Ghandi said ‘Happiness is when what you think, what you say and what you do are in harmony.”  He is right on.  And I bet Ghandi  said it in the Summer.
