I am a
According to this quiz, I am a Daffodil which means I have a sunny disposition and am normally one of the first to show up for the party. I don't need too much attention from the host once I get there as I am more than capable of making myself seen and heard.
I always like to take these sorts of quizzes to see how well they describe me. Overall, this one is fairly accurate. Click on the question "What Flower Are You?" to take the quiz and see what flower you are...

"Use your own inner hunches to determine if you're in the right place with the right people: If you feel good in someone's presence, meaning that you feel inspired to be a better and more joyful person, then you're in the right place."

I also notice there was a lady walking into the building at the same time. She was on her cell phone speaking and moving quickly. I bet she missed all that beauty.
Here is your yoga thought for the day:
"You can start returning to being in-Spirit by examining what ego has accomplished in your life, as well as making a determined effort to resist the powerful pressures of your culture's ego in favor of an inspired life." --Wayne Dyer

"You may be guided to leave a job, a city, or even a relationship--all of which may sound terrifying at the moment. Nevertheless, if the signals keep coming, and they resonate internally with you, take the step--and while doing so, know that you're being guided to a life of inspiration."
(And, if you're in a situation and you don't know what to do, don't forget to ask for signals. I have done this on a few occasions, and if I'm paying attention, the signals always come.)

I have decided even though I made it to my day 7 goal, I'm going to continue a modified version. I've purchased decaf. coffee, so I can still have my cup in the morning without the caffeine. I will use soy milk and as little sugar as I can. I am also going to consume less meat. I cannot say I won't eat any meat, but I definitely know I can eat it only occasionally, as I haven't really missed it at all. I am also going to try to continue to stay away from processed foods and eat more fresh fruits and veggies.
Today I made some yummy guacamole:

- early afternoon nap
- trip to Barnes and Noble--book heaven

Here's your yoga thought for the day (can be applied to yoga or life):
"The resolute in yoga surrender results and gain perfect peace. The irresolute, attached to results, are bound by everything they do." --Bhagvad Gita, Translated by Stephen Mitchell
Hope your Saturday is succulent, too.
