This post is one of those where I just let loose and it's quite a bit like just a stream of consciousness writing style. So here goes... I learned a lot about myself physically this year. My physical awareness has shot up like never before. I had always been very big on self awareness. For most of my life, self awareness has always been a highly mental experience. I used to do energy healing vigorously. I used to make a living out of it. It was a meditation for me and a way for me to … [Read more...] about Wrapping up 2012 with some final thoughts

If you can ride without holding the handlebars, well then, you could stretch while you're at it, too! In this video below I share with you some of the ways I can stretch while still riding, since we are just pretty much, sitting on a chair. Something not mentioned in the video is that it's easier to do any of these things after you've been warmed up and cycling for at least 5-10 minutes. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5YoEVQxCqtw Now please let me know if you know of any cool stretches … [Read more...] about Stretches to do while riding your bike with no handlebars [Video]
Once someone has a baby, all of a sudden every post becomes a picture of their new child. I love babies and all, but seriously, this is amounting to be a lot of babies, all the time. Y'all even change your profile pictures to your babies. So this browser add-on from www.unbaby.me replaces baby pics with way cooler things, like cats. Like so: … [Read more...] about Replace Baby Pics on your Facebook Feed with Cool Things, like Cats.
First of all, there's Latino's everywhere in California. You could get around the whole state without knowing a word of English. You could ask for the time in Spanish. You could order your food in Spanish. You could ask for directions in Spanish. And guess what, most of them know Spanish and English! If you aren't sure how to say a word or phrase, simply ask them! They'll be more than happy to tell you. I've noticed that if I speak Spanish, they know it's not my native language and are … [Read more...] about Why You Should Practice Speaking Spanish in LA
A true teacher is not the one with the most knowledge, but one who causes the most others to have knowledge. - Neale Donald Walsch - We are often taught that one has to study and become a master of a subject first before they are qualified to teach it. Surely teacher certification programs have their place but I'm not talking about the bureaucracy of becoming a full-time teacher. I'm talking about a general truth of life: Teaching forces you to quickly jump from being informed and … [Read more...] about Teaching is the Shortcut to Mastery
How you handle and manage any situation, challenge or experience in your life is probably how you handle all of them. You could extrapolate the process behind how you do any one thing, and use it as a sign of how you probably do any other thing. Since how you do anything is how you do everything, it's important to be honest about how you do 'anything.' As adults, no one is really watching your every move so you have to catch yourself in the act. I'm just trying to nudge you to become a little … [Read more...] about How You Do Anything Is How You Do Everything
"Every artist was first an amateur." Ralph Waldo Emerson We all have a finite amount of time on this Earth. About 120 years ago the entire human population was comprised of a completely different set of individuals. So yes, we will all eventually run out of time and die, but why do we let that rule us? As far as our awareness is concerned, all we have is time. Lots and lots of time. This life is nothing BUT us experiencing the passing of time. We have an entire life of time to be … [Read more...] about All you have is time.

Loosening the hamstrings takes dedication. I don't know how old you are but at the time of this writing I am 29 years old and I'm literally trying to undo 29 years of never-stretching-my-hamstrings. I've been wanting (but not really trying) to touch my toes without bending my knees for about 10 years. It wasn't until a couple months ago when I was able to finally do that. The main reason why our hamstrings are tight in the first place is that we spend most of our lives with our hamstrings in … [Read more...] about Tight Hamstrings
