Today was a crazy day and I went to yoga stressed out and PMS.
I left excited to start another day, thinking about nature and my wellness, most of my headache went away, and I felt so rejuvenated and happy.
I focused on releasing positive energy and breathing, which taught me to take life a little slower.
At the beginning, the instructor suggested that we contemplate something to think on throughout the exercises; it may be turning your heart toward Japan. Later, the instructor told us to focus on the area in between our eyes and to focus on releasing positive energy through that area and I felt my headache subside.
Who would have ever known Yoga could make you feel so great about life!
I was so excited to see Danny; so excited for work tomorrow; and so excited for spring.

My OWN music taste

I have found my very own music taste, what makes my heart sing.
I love it on a sunny day with the windows rolled down,
A snowy day when I'm curled up drinking herbal tea,
When I'm cooking

This spoke to me today

 “And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord. … The Lord shall fight for you.” 
That is the second lesson of the spirit of revelation. After you have gotten the message, after you have paid the price to feel His love and hear the word of the Lord, go forward. Don’t fear, don’t vacillate, don’t quibble, don’t whine. You may, like Alma going to Ammonihah, have to find a route that leads an unusual way, but that is exactly what the Lord is doing here for the children of Israel. Nobody had ever crossed the Red Sea this way, but so what? There’s always a first time. With the spirit of revelation, dismiss your fears and wade in with both feet. In the words of Joseph Smith, “Brethren [and sisters], shall we not go on in so great a cause? Go forward and not backward. Courage, brethren; and on, on to the victory!” 12 
let not your hearts faint. … Mine angels shall go up before you, and also my presence, and in time ye shall possess the goodly land.” 14
What goodly land? Well, your goodly land. Your promised land. Your new Jerusalem. Your own little acre flowing with milk and honey. Your future. Your dreams. Your destiny. I believe that in our own individual ways, God takes us to the grove or the mountain or the temple and there shows us the wonder of what His plan is for us. We may not see it as fully as Moses or Nephi or the brother of Jared did, but we see as much as we need to see in order to know the Lord’s will for us and to know that He loves us beyond mortal comprehension. I also believe that the adversary and his pinched, calculating little minions try to oppose such experiences and then try to darken them after they happen. But that is not the way of the gospel. That is not the way of a Latter-day Saint who claims as the fundamental fact of the Restoration the spirit of revelation. Fighting through darkness and despair and pleading for the light is what opened this dispensation. It is what keeps it going, and it is what will keep you going. With Paul, I say to all of you:
“Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward.
“For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.” 15

I learned:
I HAVE A GOODLY LAND (what I imagine in my head is a bright white apartment with green grass and fresh grown vegetables where Danny and I can wake up in a cream colored bedroom and we aren't sick -- its so fun to dream!)

Do what you love
