And So it Begins

I'm husband, father, public school employee, fitness junkee who loves food, and a self-diagnosed HSP. I love music. I'm someone who has always looked for his purpose.

I love my coffee black.

I have always been employed to help others. I think that is my purpose.

As I launch this blog, we are living in what will be seen in history books: a pandemic racial stew. This blog is not about that. But these unprecedented times parted the clouds of doubt, uncertainty and what if's for me. While the world slowed down, things became more clear.

I treated the first few weeks of quarantine like I was in college again: staying up late, cocktails with the neighbors, watching the news. Wash, rinse, repeat. Four weeks later, I knew I needed a change. In fact, I have known for a long time I needed a change. I was heavier than I've ever been. I wasn't sleeping all that well, and working from home was more about schedules and less about the lives of my students I serve.

"I can not come out of this quarantine and not have that website."

"I want to lose weight. Significant weight."

And so it begins . . .

Calma has been in my head for a few years now. Only it was not called that. It was called "That Thing I Want to Do." I had all kinds of reasons in my head telling me why not to do it. Then, it hit me. Just start putting things together. Just like yoga teaches us . . . Just begin. Just return. It's not about trying to get somewhere. It's about HERE. NOW.

And so it begins . . .

I hope to share this blog with folks who have an interest in mindfulness. I hope to share my observations, life experiences and such in a way that connects, helps and serves others. I hope when you read what I have to say you RELATE, SMILE, LAUGH, and/or LEARN. And just like our breath, I hope you . . .
