Life, As I Know It...

Kiki. 23. Long Island.
Tea Enthusiast. Yogi. Positivity Preacher. Badass.
This blog is to document my journey, as well as save random pictures/quotes I enjoy.
I thrive on being busy and hardworking. I work full time, and am also a full time student trying to maintain my 3.9 gpa while enjoying the little free time I have with the people I love the most.
My passion is yoga. My hobbies include archery, knife throwing nun-chucking and nerding out.
I quit smoking cigarettes on June 10, 2013. Which I feel is my biggest accomplishment yet.
I am on a journey to get fit, meditate regularly and get some money in the bank so I can eventually begin my YTT.


I believe Ralph Waldo Emerson said it best, “Make the most of yourself, for that is all there is of you.”

I actually attack the concept of happiness. The idea that - I don’t mind people being happy - but the idea that everything we do is part of the pursuit of happiness seems to me a really dangerous idea and has led to a contemporary disease in Western society, which is fear of sadness. It’s a really odd thing that we’re now seeing people saying “write down 3 things that made you happy today before you go to sleep”, and “cheer up” and “happiness is our birthright” and so on. We’re kind of teaching our kids that happiness is the default position - it’s rubbish. Wholeness is what we ought to be striving for and part of that is sadness, disappointment, frustration, failure; all of those things which make us who we are. Happiness and victory and fulfillment are nice little things that also happen to us, but they don’t teach us much. Everyone says we grow through pain and then as soon as they experience pain they say “Quick! Move on! Cheer up!” I’d like just for a year to have a moratorium on the word “happiness” and to replace it with the word “wholeness”. Ask yourself “is this contributing to my wholeness?” and if you’re having a bad day, it is.

Dear anonymous,

So much comes to mind, but no words. Could you really be who I think you are?
