Today’s goal is to acknowledge yourself.
1. To celebrate the quality of something.
Today’s goal is to reward yourself for something specific…with something specific.
It might be difficult, like in this case…
Ex: You get fired.
How can you acknowledge yourself [for getting fired, for instance]?
First, acknowledge yourself for something you did, like “I did a great project, last year.”
Then, reward yourself for the project and repeat!
Keep rewarding yourself!
Ex: “I did a great project, last year, so I’m gonna take myself to dinner at Le Bernardin.”
Ex: “I did a great project, last year, so I’m gonna buy myself a bag.”
Ex: “I did a great project, last year, so I’m gonna watch this interesting movie…fully!”
*The reward can be small or large, but it should be specific, for this exercise.
Essentially, the goal is to reward yourself for something specific… with something specific and repeat, until you feel acknowledged.
Have fun with this exercise!

You could say thank you to yourself, or someone else, because let’s face it, in today’s world F*u is more common than thank you. So, say thank you today! And let’s change the world, together.
If you notice you’re in the moment, you’re present, you’re paying attention to every detail, savoring the moment, you win. You are a success!
If you notice you’re not in the moment, you’re not present, you’re not paying attention to every detail, not savoring the moment, you loose.
*Ya gotta do somethin’ to play!

The Yoga Book
*The Yoga Book itself is a personal journal for your insights and inspirations, after a yoga class!
It can also help you determine which ‘style of yoga,’ yoga class, or instructor is right for you.
“The idea for The Yoga Book came to me in a yoga class! I saw the cover clearly in my mind and after class, I needed somewhere to sketch it! Also, I had recently met with a compassionate Indian medical doctor, who had said “Different styles of yoga effect people differently, so it is important to know which ‘style of yoga’ is right for you.” So, I decided to create a book, where people could journal about their experiences in a yoga class, write about the different postures, how they feel, get inspired, and write about their insights… Sometimes I would come to class with a problem, any problem, and leave with a solution! And when I did, I’d write it down somewhere, so I decided to create The Yoga Book!”
- Creator of The Yoga Book
*It has 100 pages for notes, and on each page it has an inspirational quote, a space for the date, class, and instructor’s name, and it will be available on Amazon.com very soon!
