I hope you all had a good week! Especially if you experienced any crazy weather; I hope you are safe and getting back to normal 🙂 Can you believe today is the last day of January! First month of 2014 is in the books...Yay! I have to say, 2014 has not impressed me yet, but hopefully that just means the good stuff is yet to come. Like hearing back from colleges, warm weather, graduations, blogging trips, summer, yoga teacher training, running a 5k... I still have high hopes! What is getting me done now though is school. Not the work, but just the whole situation, it isn't good right now. O how I just need to turn 18 and get out of here and start a new journey. And did I tell you guys I stopped my daily 5 minute meditations. Yea, I know, it didn't last long. But I was feeling way to mush anxiety about it once school started back up after break. But I have been more mindful to take some deep breaths and breath more throughout the day. I have also actually began taking Savasana at the end of my yoga practices too. Meditations shouldn't be forced, but implemented in the right times; that is my new outlook 🙂

A few things I loved about my week or am grateful for:
+ Aurorae Yoga! I received a tank top for Christmas that I wanted from them. I had a black one that I absolutely loved and wanted another color. It ended up being purple, but it was completely...not right. It was so stretched out, and looked like it had been washed 50 times. Weird because it was totally new. So I contacted them about my disappointment and they we so kind! They know I love their company and love all the other products I own from them, but they went above and beyond. With no coast to me, no hassle, they sent me a new tank (this time I opted for pink) for free! They told me they had been having trouble with the purple tanks due to the dyeing process. But I just received my new pink tank and it is exactly how it should be! Thank you Aurorae <3 P.S. Their yoga mats rock! I got a yellow one for Christmas too, and it is my favorite thing 🙂
+ I have a pretty chill weekend ahead so I am looking forward to just keeping calm, relaxing, and smashing my fear!
+ I have reached the mini-milestone of 100 likes on Facebook! Yay! Thank you all so much for you love, readership, and support. I love connecting with you all 🙂
So tell me:
Have any good customer service company stories to share? I love the smaller companies that actually get back to you quickly and truly take what you have to say to heart!
What was you favorite ride at Disney World (not Land...)? I loved Mt.Everest! It is the only and will be the only real roller coaster I ever went on! Crazy fun even if I closed my eyes, screamed, and held on to my dad for dear life all 4 times I went on! (P.S. Disney World is way better then Disney Land. So, yea, just saying!)
What's on the weekend plans for you?
