The Pisser of Instant Gratification

Instant gratification feels great almost always in the moment. Isn’t that what it’s all about? It’s the buyer’s remorse later, the Sunday afternoon brunch hangover, or the food coma that snaps us back into reality. With high speed everything, we are instant gratification junkies now.

New *FREE* February Challenge: MFK-5-10-1

January’s Push, Squat, Core Challenge, or more affectionately known as #PSC100, was such a hit that we’ve decided to continue into February taking the challenge to a whole new level.

I Got My Word!

Today, my new friend and Kundalini teacher, Hari Bhajan, was talking about her word for 2015: Prosperity. I was smiling and nodding, “Right on. I got a word. OOOO, that’s a good one.” I knew my word from last year, at least: Joy. We went through this already, here. Her take on prosperity is colored with realizing your authentic self,... Read More
