Balancing My Many Selves

Balancing My Many Selves

As a kid, I always took time to daydream and imagine life when I was ‘grown up’. The daydreams varied on the day and what my latest hot button was. Some days I wanted to be a gymnast (until I realized I was too tall by at least a foot!), others I longed for a […]

You are never lost…if you know ...

You are never lost…if you know where you are going.

This morning as I was running through the beautiful foliage in the mountains, enjoying the fall colors, the cool breeze and the warm sun, I suddenly realized something important…I was lost! Turning in all directions I was unsure of what trail I had ventured onto and hence I had no idea where I was in […]

Surrender to Money…Find Peace

Surrender to Money…Find Peace

I hate managing money and trying to earn more money and spending money and saving money. When I am in times of prosperity and abundance I overspend, in times of scarcity and lack I scrimp, clip coupons, and stress. I have not been able to find a happy medium. This morning was spent paying bills […]

Everyone wants to go to Heaven, but nobody wants to Die.

Everyone Wants to go to Heaven, But Nobody Wants to Die I saw this statement printed on a shirt recently and for some reason it has really stuck with me. I want to go to heaven, but the thought of dying and leaving all I love behind is a scary and painful thought. I am very attached […]

Letting Go-Find love by losing expectations

This afternoon I acted out a scene in my life that I have been through many times before. I met with the principal and teachers at my son’s school and was told a long list of things he is struggling with, what he does wrong, how he is misbehaving in class, about what a distraction he […]

Control is a Four Letter Word

Control is a Four Letter Word

My name is Heather Johnson and I am a Control Freak. Phew-now that I have that off my chest I can get real with you. I try to control everything: my time, my husband’s time, my kids time, the house, our money and where it is spent and how it is earned, electronics in our […]

Start Being Childish

Start Being Childish

As a kid I remember looking at adults and thinking they had it made. They got to make all the decisions, nobody told them what to do, they could spend money on whatever they wanted, and best of all they didn’t have to go to bed early. But that childish impression of adulthood in no […]

Life Lessons from a Paddleboard

Life Lessons from a Paddleboard

“Nature often holds up a mirror so we can see more clearly the ongoing processes of growth, renewal, and transformation in our lives.” Mary Ann Brussat For years I have been dying to try paddle boarding. Last year I took a solo trip to Maya Tulum on the Mexican Riviera for a yoga retreat and decided […]

Stop Being Fake

Stop Being Fake

It is so hard to be authentic and real! Even when I try to be my real Self with other people, and show who I truly am, I find myself pretending and being a shadow version of myself. When I picture a guru (spiritual teacher or guide), I see one who is so aware of […]

A Picture is Worth a Thousand Poses

A Picture is Worth a Thousand Poses

My sister was visiting today from Hawaii and we decided to have play time taking photos of our favorite yoga poses. And it was very revealing. Often in yoga class I will feel like I am in the most AMAZING back bend, or that my form in plank pose is without flaw. But, after seeing […]
