My Yoga Experience & Advantages of Yoga that Would Change Your Life

For the past 12 weeks, I have attended Yoga classes (once a week) and I can say that the very first thing I noticed on my first night of taking yoga is that I slept deeply after a long warm shower.  After continuing yoga, I noticed also that I built strength and learnt how to breathe.

Happy Easter guys and welcome to a brand new week. I haven’t opened a blog like that in a while 🙂 Hope your weekend went well, mine went really well and I’m grateful for everything. Allow me share some of the FAB things I did with you…..

First, I spent time with 12 boys and girls doing leaving cert this year to empower, encourage and motivate them to do their best to be who they want to be and much more covering overcoming setbacks, sticking with your own plan and staying in your own lane and much more. I am really grateful to everyone who came to support this little vision of mine – Julianah Ilori provided all the brunches and prayed for and with the Children, Precious Alli gave a talk on College life and Samuel helped us to revise leaving cert (higher and ordinary level) with the Children. It was really good and the feedback from the Children have been nothing but positive. I am truly pleased and grateful that everything went well. On Sunday, I was at a 50th birthday party with my family and I was the Compere (MC) at the party. It was a very busy but a great weekend for me. Enough about me, I was YOURS?

New Month, New Quarter of the Year – It is Time to Take Stock

It was just like yesterday that we said happy new year and now, we are in the 2nd quarter of the year. Let me break it down:

January to March = Ist quarter of the year.

April to June is = 2nd quarter of the year.

July – September = 3rd quarter of the year.

October – December = 4th quarter of the year.

So, today, the first of April is the first day of the 2nd quarter of the year. As the year is going, our lives is going or moving forward – we are growing in age and possibly for some, in resources, wealth, knowledge and for some in the spirit. No matter where our lives is headed right now, life is moving or going on. I would say this, it is okay to be moving but in what direction is your life moving? – Where you want it to be? Confused? Unfulfilled? Or killing it (achieving those goals)?
