Jackie’s Take on Summertime Scarves



Dear Diary,

As I struggle this summer to find a job, I also continue the struggle to find balance in my life– social work, acting, family, friends, blogging– I’m constantly being pulled in 15 different directions and somehow I’m supposed to find the BALANCE!?  SFG’s… I know you can relate!  The term balance is often used loosely by a lot of people but it seems so important nonetheless– us ladies do it all, and somehow we all like to pretend that’s easy!  Balance is meant to suggest that we’re able to juggle everything at once, but seriously it’s NOT possible.  Life nowadays is too hectic– but for some reason we keep on trying!

We all know that cooking is one way that I try to find my zen, but another is through yoga.  I am an ultimate yogi– no that doesn’t mean I can meditate in a headstand or make every yoga position look easy, but what it does means is I go regularly, sweat A LOT (a lot may be an understatement), and practice yoga not just for the awesome work out.  I go to focus on nothing… but my breath.  Yup, that’s right!  I go to regain that “balance” that is so often missing in my every day life, and reconnect to myself for just a moment during my day.  As I struggle to complete the class (usually by the 10th chaturanga I’m ready to pack up and completely quit this whole “yoga-thing”), I try to remember that just like in life… perfection is not the goal!  Life (and yoga) is about focusing on the moment, taking each day in and trying to find what’s meaningful and purposeful for your right then and there!  If I start my day off with a yoga class, I feel rocketed into the day!  I not only know that I did something healthy for my body, but I did something healthy for my mind and spirit!  I feel confident and excited to start the day… and I’m no longer dragging my feet, anxious about the next thing that I have to do.



We came across tiny devotions online and I immediately felt that I had found a kindred spirit in their message and brand… not to mention in their style ;)  hah… I’m all about the bohemian look… it’s sexy, laid-back and looks fabulously effortless.  So when I saw their “hipster scarf”– it was love at first sight!  This scarf makes me feel like I can conquer anything, and not to mention look pretty chic doing it… hey, it even makes my yoga pants look inspired!

All the things that I have to do… work, blog, friends, family… they’re not going away– and I wouldn’t want them to!  I’m devoted to it all… just like my yoga practice!  It’s the only way I’ll stay sane… :)
