Buh-bye March, Hello April and YIOM!

This is me today:

I have multiple issues with April Fool’s Day which relate directly back to getting the crap teased out of me as a child. Sparing you any grim childhood recollections, let’s talk about why we’re really here: YOGA! [and shoes, right?].

April kicks off YIOM or Yoga Inspiring Oneness Month, brainchild of Laurin from The VeganAsana, which aims to bring the yoga blogging community together to promote even more yoga [applaud here please]. We’ve committed to posting on at least three yoga-related topics per week for the entire month of April. Find YIOM participants and more details here [Bee-tee-dubs, YIOM has a rad blogroll. I am way humbled to be a part of it].

Check twitter for #YIOM and keep an eye out for this indicator of a YIOM-related post around the interweb this month:

In other news, I quit my soul-sucking big-girl job this week [yowza!] which means several things:

  1. Less Moschino, more Marshall’s;
  2. More yoga;
  3. More writing;
  4. More time to watch The Big Guy do his best Michael Cutter impression [what can I say? I’m a sucker for a guy in a suit].

Most notably in this list are #s 2 and 3: more yoga and writing. That’s right friends, the time has come and I’m breakin’ free of the 9 – 5 (plus) worked-to-the-bone-stuck-inside-a-fluorescent-lit-office lifestyle [hallelujah]. Can I get a witness? I said, CAN I GET A WITNESS?

Marvin Gaye rocks. And, did you see that dancing? That man just makes you want to move!

I digress.

So, more on the major life transition to come, along with a clothing review or two and some fun YIOM posts. For now, Happy Friday and keep on rockin’ on and off the mat [use Marvin Gaye jams at your discretion].

Love,

♥ VY

    1. Me neither, and am sometimes alarmed by my propensity for cynical humor. Can’t get enough! And thank you, thank you, thank you. It’s time enough to drop the soul-suck – as in, three years in the making. Time to start practicing what I preach. 🙂

  1. Wow! Way to go on leaving the soul-sucking job!! Takes some courage to make a change like that… I’ve been there before and need to realize the same again, so awesome for you!
    I also aim for more yoga and writing, so YIOM should be both fun and challenging! 🙂

    1. Thanks, Crystal. Life is a constant balancing act, isn’t it? I hope you get back to that point, too. Looking forward to sharing YIOM with you!
