La Vida Dolce reblogged this on La Vida Dolce and commented:

After college until now, I feel that I've grown a lot as an individual and see the world a little bit differently.  The most important lessons I learned during that time were 1) it's never to late to ask for help, and 2) it's ok to say No sometimes - this brief posting will focus on the latter lesson.  A lot of times in my life I've been guilty of saying "Yes" when I really wanted to say "No", but why did I do that?  My unconscious reasons were to not rock the boat, not appear selfish, or because it seemed to be "the right thing to do".  I've realized there needs to be a balance to this conundrum - albeit, it may not be easy.  I think we need to set our own limitations and not allow ourselves to be ruled by others reactions.  It can be a lofty task to start, but like Momma G says "practice makes perfect, so with a little bit of practice, it will be perfect" :) I would love to hear your thoughts.  Happy reading :)

How Yoga Prepared me for Life

When people think of yoga, many picture a room of meditative, bendy, hippie-vegans sitting crossed-legged in a room. If you take a class, you’ll come to find there are a lot of options that range from a fast flow with intense heat to pure meditation and completely restorative. 888 more words


So here’s my dilemma. Being an ad major, we have many Supreme Court cases involving the first amendment beaten into our head. (I can recite it verbatim.) One of my elective classes are ethics in computer which have overlapping topics and I’m hearing many of the same examples I’ve heard before – which is great because I enjoy it and the repetition helps prevent decay in my overworked brain. 538 more words
