A little "Om" in your life...

Sunday, November 8, 2015

Have you ever found yourself in an internal battle?  I think I've been stuck in one for a while now, but it was something that SB said to me a few weeks ago that made it really click.  

I've been really feeling the boho vibe for the last year or so.  I got a tattoo of a peace sign.  I grew my hair out long.  I started using essential oils.  I began a yoga practice.  I downloaded a ton of music from the 1960s and 1970s.  I watched several documentaries about Woodstock.  I really wanted to be a hippie.  

I mean, I've always been a "breath fresh air, hug a tree, recycle, stop to smell the flowers" kind of gal and while I was still in the states teaching special ed, I seemed to have a knack for calming children out of tantrums so I kind of figured that I was a calm person, but I think now that perhaps I just have a calm vibe, but on the inside, it's like all of my thoughts and worries are tiny flakes shaken up inside a snow globe.  

I've tried to attain a calm vibe both inside and out, but despite my best efforts, it's only made it as far as the outside, but I do love being surrounded by things that evoke peace (like my new Om necklace... details at the bottom of the post).  

Attaining that inner calm is definitely my new life goal.  How about ya'll?  Can you relate?  What are your hopes and dreams?

    1. Thank you! I love these pants! So breezy and the colours make me happy!

  2. Finding calm is a huge goal of mine. Needless to say, stress is one of the primary emotions in college. Anyway, your outfit is so perfect and comfortable. I imagine it's difficult to feel anything but relaxed in such a perfect easy look!

  5. Being in a constant state of calm just does not seem feasible, does it?! A lot of things stress me out - sometimes I let them get to me, sometimes I ignore them and work hard to see the positives in everything. Balance is my life goal, but it's tough! xxx
