The month ahead…
Reading | Universal Myths: Heroes, Gods, Tricksters and Others by Alexander Elliot
I picked this up off my roommates bookshelf the other afternoon and found myself entirely absorbed. Mythology and religion have always been fascinating subjects to me, so learning more about the ways in which myths and legends have shaped humanity is completely compelling reading for me.
Learning | to approach my photography without judgment.
I have this strange anxiety about taking a photo. I want the right moment, the right shot, the right setting and lighting. And I want it all on the first try. I’m a perfectionist at my core and I find myself frustrated when I am not instantaneously gratified by the perfect shot. This is unreasonable, I realize.
Exploring | a few of the yoga studios around town.
My good friend Mel just opened up her own studio called Arrow Heart Yoga over in Meiners Oaks and I’m so excited to go check out a few of the classes she’ll be offering! I haven’t attended a yoga class in-studio since I left SF, so I’m excited to see what Ojai has to offer.
Creating | more personal and custom content for the blog.
I’ve been working really hard to get a consistent posting schedule going for Gypsi and hopefully, this month, you guys will see the fruits of my labors. I have so much fun stuff planned for the summer!
Healing | myself.
I’ve been sick a lot this year, and last month I had to take a couple weeks off work for personal health reasons. Between all the moving, job changes, stress and just the daily grind, my body and my immune system have just been worn out. I finally had to take a moment to slow down and take care of myself and reconsider my personal care routine. I’m making a very concentrated effort to be more mindful of myself, more aware of my body and what it needs and more proactive about giving it the care and exercise it needs to remain healthy.
Enjoying | taking time to journal every day.
Keeping a journal has always been something I’ve done, and lately I’ve been trying to be more mindful of carving out time during my day to sit down and really go over my feelings, my day and just do a little check in.
