The “One Day” That Actually Arrived

With something as simple as investing in a monthly pass to a yoga class, I have experienced so much change in my life.

I have been practicing yoga for around 3 1/2 years and it truly is something that works for me, fitness-wise. I love the feeling of strength and femininity that yoga gives me, the constant challenge and the fact that I can do it almost anywhere. (You can tell just by looking at my disheveled old yoga mat, that it’s been quite a long love affair).

Miranda Makes:: Golden Turmeric Chai

I am so excited! I’ve worked on this here video for a good couple of weeks, overcome a few technical difficulties and made a few things creatively that I never have before. It’s a bit rough, you can hear all the background sounds (planes, birds, cars), there are watermarks I can’t get rid of and I had to correct a few things that I forgot while filming, but I’m proud. It’s done! And I think you might just love it!

I know it’s not Game of Thrones, but at least while you wait for that, you can take 10 minutes to enjoy my new format/intro. And I’d love to see you make the recipe! It truly is delicious, and simple to boot.

Breaking the habit

It’s always a nice feeling when you realise you’ve changed a habit that you’ve been struggling with.

This happened to me yesterday. I was sitting in the cinema with my friend Tiffany about to watch That Sugar Film. We’d just purchased some chocolate treats from Koko Black (after having veggie-filled Vietnamese soups for lunch at that place in Westfield Indooroopilly – holy moly, they were good!) and after having 4 dark chocolate covered hazelnuts, I realised I didn’t want anymore. I happily folded the bag of chocolates and put them in my bag. I wasn’t doing it out of punishment or to hide it from myself, I was simply very satisfied by the few morsels that I’d had and didn’t want to have anymore. That was it. Had a really said “no” to more chocolate?

We all need to stop judging

I am absolutely sick to death of hearing people judge other people.

It happens everywhere; among my friends, on Facebook (of course), the “news”, on blogs and even among a group of fellow practitioners who have been taught, like I have, to view every human being with unconditional positive regard. And it just makes me so frustrated!

Are you perfect? No, you’re not! You are human, and so are they, so kindly shut up!

Dr John Demartini puts it perfectly when he says that

Everything you see in others is a reflection of what actually exists within you, though you may be too humble or too proud to admit it
