Something New #31 – Felia

Leave a comment

March 26, 2011 by Darlene McC

Thursday was the kind of day that could only be saved by a visit to a pub.  Specifically, an Irish pub to be my Something New.  We ended up heading to Felia (pronounced fey-la) on 33rd and the harshness of the afternoon was resolved with beer and delicious foods.

One of my favorite foods when I lived in New Haven were the Irish Nachos at Sullivan’s and I miss them regularly, so it was a great boon to my mood when I discovered that the loaded chips at Felia were their version of the same: fresh cut fries smothered in cheesy goodness and sour cream… except at Felia they add BACON (and, as we all know, bacon is a food group of its own).

I’ll be going back.

💖 May we all celebrate Friday by respecting one another's humanity. 🙏🥰🧘‍♀️ #sharelove #givelove #livefree #love #respect #coachmentality @anidifranco #anidifranco #quote #quotestoliveby
💖💖💖 Peacefulness has become a commodity in our society. You take a pill (or edible 😏), you pay to speak with someone outside your circle, or pay for a drink. But when's the last time you sat outside and just felt the air? Or listened to the water? Or smelled the earth? 🌬🌊🏞 Students tell me they can't meditate because they find it physically uncomfortable. This #throwback is to a moment of peace in Thailand with @luna_alignment_yoga where I spread out on a rock, opened up, and took a long deep breath. 🧘‍♀️ #fivemin4fivedays #Meditation #throwbackthursday #tt #lunayoga #lunaalignmentyogattc #kohphagan #myarmpit #peace #selfcareisselflove #selflove #selfdevelopment #coaching #coach #challenge #meditationchallenge
I woke up like this... 😸 We think meditation has to be so serious! That it's a deep well of self examination and being uncomfortable and fidgeting. But it doesn't have to be. 🤔 What if meditation was about how nice a deep breath feels? About easing the tension from your body, like a massage from your own mind? Would you like the idea of it then? 🥰 Remember, whatever you think of meditation is just a story you've told yourself. Just because your brain said it doesn't make it true. 🤯 This week I'm hosting a 5 day meditation challenge. Commit to meditate for 5 min, 5 days in a row. Post to your feed or story (pictures or it didn't happen lol) tag @darlene.coach and #fivemin4fivedays 🙏💖 #Meditation #mindfulness #catlady #selflove #selfcare #selfcareisselflove #laugh #laughterismedicine #staywild #staywildgypsychild
There's a lot of misconceptions about meditation. 🤔 One that I encounter often is that you need to sit in a special way or chant special words. That there's a "right" way to do it; which can mean my students tell themselves they're doing it "wrong". 🥺 My opinion: unless you're meditating to reach enlightenment, or for another spiritual discipline, you can't do it wrong! 😃 In the context of wellbeing, meditation is about slowing down. Giving your mind and body a pause. At first that might feel uncomfortable, but trying it is already helping. 🙏 What are your questions about meditation? I'll be posting all week. And join my for my meditation challenge: #fivemin4fivedays 🤯 #Meditation #mindfulness #growthmindset #growdammit #growandchange #gooutside
Who looks up to you? Are they what motivates you? 🦄 Often times when I'm working with clients old enough to have kids (or in my case, my friend's and siblings kids), it's not only themselves they're motivated for. Parents realize early how kids listen to everything they say. They're little 🦜🦜 You know what else kids learn from us? ➡️How we talk to ourselves. ➡️How we take care of ourselves. ➡️What we put in our bodies. As you consider your self care habit, consider what you're teaching your little ones. As I said to a coaching client last week "you can't teach your son something you haven't learned yourself" 💖 #coaching #coachmentality #unicorn #kids #theyrealwayswatching #selfcare #selfawareness #selfcareisselflove #selflove #selfactualization #superherogoals #superhero #superhuman #example #inspiration #tt #transfomationtuesday
Onward to adventure! 🦄 The last piece of the puzzle in my self acceptance journey so far was my purpose. I'd tried for a long time to follow the path that "made sense", but in that magic time with @luna_alignment_yoga and @talswissa I was able to see how the pieces didn't fit. I had to be true to myself and my place in this universe. 🥺 Change is scary. Facing down these big questions is hard. Learning how to accept yourself and own your sh*t is an ongoing process. The other side isn't always full of 🌈, but it beats the hell out of the alternative. 💗 If you're working on your self care and consistency with the things we all know we "should" do, there are still 2 spaces available in the beta test for Motivated Month, and today's the last day to join.
