Hey there Amazons.  Long time no see.  It certainly has been awhile.

For our new friends who have fallen in love with the Spring Of Ann: Hi.  I’m Darlene.  I started UA almost years ago when I began the journey to becoming a trainer & wellness coach.  You haven’t seen me much because I’ve mostly had my head up my ass since February.

A lots been happening since the beginning of the year.  I became a certified sport and exercise Nutrition Coach.  Hiked the Grand Canyon and went to Vegas for the first time.  And Ann’s been knocking it out of the park with her EATS posts as she travels all over the US.

You know what I have not been doing a lot of?  Writing.  Not for Urban Amazon, and for little else as well.  My intention for UA this year had been serious expansion; but I miss the old forum.  I miss having a space where I just blew off whatever was on my mind that day regarding health, our bodies, other people’s thoughts on our bodies, life change, my own adventures, and whatever else seemed relevant.  In my desire to make UA into “something greater” I created a vacuum instead of a space.  When I sit down to write now I feel like my ideas “aren’t good enough” and quit with them before I’ve started.  The whole point of this space was to have a place to write – and now I’ve written myself out of it.

Yeah.  I know.  Silly self-doubting demons.

It’s my intention to take a few steps back mentally, and bring Urban Amazon back to where it was for me personally about a year ago.  Ann will (I HOPE!) keep posting her regular Friday EATS posts – I think everyone would be pissed at me if they stopped.  Hell, I’d be pissed at me… (unless she goes to grow her own, which I would support because I love her and want her to be happy, etc, etc).  But I’m planning for you to read more of me.  The return of Wisdom Wednesday, some more advice, thoughts on exercise, and ideas on the care and maintenance of yourself and those in your life.  You’ll probably see a resurgence of the old “this is the adventure I went on recently” posts.  I miss those.

That’s what’s up with me.  What’s up with you?

#tbt to our last sunset in Thailand. I miss that magic island and all my loves from TTC. A far cry from a rainy day in Midtown Manhattan. . . Suns set, seasons change. This has been a year of transformations so far, and there's still more to come. . . Don't be afraid of change. It's our only constant. It's one of our few lifelong companions, alone with your heartbeat and your breath. You can fight it or you can embrace it ~ one leaks energy and one invites you to leave behind what isn't working. . . How have you reached towards change this year? . . . #kohphagan #progressnotperfection #changeisgood #growthmindset #anothergrowthopportunity #washyourface #thailandyoga #lunayoga #lunaalignmentyoga #lunaalignmentyogattc #ttc #yogawarrior #yogateacher

Wise words from my teacher: ・・・ For years I saw yoga as the goal, sacrificing myself on its alter. I now see yoga as magnificent tool, or actually a box of tools, aimed to help us live life in its full potential: health on all levels and acceptance on all levels, so we can experience the freedom and joy within us. ❤️ -Tal . . . #Repost @luna_alignment_yoga . . . . . . . . . . #alignmentyogattc #lunaalignmentyoga #alignment #alignmentyoga #yogateacher #yoga #yogateachertraining #yogateacherlife #yogateachertrainingthailand #yogateachertrainingcourse #innerstate #yogastudents #ytt200 #wellbeing #thailandyoga #yogathailand #kohphanganyoga #yogakohphangan #pranayamagarden #instayoga #yogateachertrainings #yogateachertrainingkohphangan
Back from a weekend in the woods by myself, feeling a sense of freedom and accomplishment. . . It's so easy in our lives to focus on the daily challenges. The lists of tasks, the unanswered texts, the emails and "shoulds". Knowing I had 30 hours that was more about the journey than the destination gave me the freedom to explore. To enjoy. To play. To just BE. . . What gives you a sense of freedom? Have you set aside some time this weekend/coming week to just BE? How will you use it? . . #gooutside #befree #outdoors #donttellmewhaticantdo #heds #hiking #camping #womenwhocamp #wildwoman #wildchild #free #bornfree #liveinthewild #livefree
Don't let Monday twist you up. . . So much about our daily lives is a matter of perspective. "Monday" does not have to be a negative! A new week is a new opportunity to be better, stronger, more resilient, and to have a greater impact on your world. . . Choose your path, don't let your let your reactiveness choose it for you. . . #getsome #alignmentyoga #yogawisdom #monday #seatedtwist #positivity #motivatedmonday
