A few weeks ago I was in Tulum, Mexico for a week of yoga, meditation and silent beach walks. I arrived at night after everyone else had gone to sleep. Inside my cabana two flickering candles revealed a comfy bed draped in mosquito netting with a welcome card on the pillow. I picked up the card and read what was written. Holding it next to my heart I smiled. Then I crawled under the covers and drifted off to sleep.
The next morning as I was journaling in my notebook, I thought about the card and scribbled down what it had said: You are worth loving. I had a funny feeling that what I wrote wasn’t quite right, so I went back to my cabana to double-check. Sure enough, I had misquoted the card. It actually read: I am worth loving.
Notice the difference?
Why is it so easy to believe others are worth loving, but so hard to believe it about ourselves? Why is it difficult to say? To know? To live?
This isn’t a narcissistic kind of love; rather, it’s a “love your neighbor as yourself” kind of love. Eating mindfully, treating ourselves with kindness, practicing yoga — these are ways we can love ourselves by being stewards of our body and soul.
I began practicing yoga years ago after watching my then-boyfriend (now husband) ease into a backbend with grace. To this day I still can’t do that, but it doesn’t matter because self-love is about accepting myself for who I am, not what I can achieve. I will be blogging about yoga twice a week for the Eat Wasa Feel Good team (my partner, Zandria, introduced herself yesterday as the vegan blogger).
So here’s a warm welcome to you, loved one, and an invitation to join me on this journey. Feel free to post comments, questions or ideas. You can also e-mail me or visit my personal blog, Roughly Speaking.
Oh, by the way, my name is Jenny. And I am worth loving.

One of the most embarrassing situations a man could ever have is being unable to produce an erection during sexual intercourse. This not only insults the female partner, but it also questions the man’s erectile functions. If this situation occurs frequently for the man, it is not only frustrating for him, but it may also trigger fear as the possibility that he is now impotent is becoming much clearer. Erectile dysfunction (ED) is perhaps the most undesirable sexual condition a man could ever have as this condition not only prevents him from having successful sexual intercourses, but also psychologically torments him because the main aspect of what makes him a man is no longer in functioning order.
Fortunately, there are now PDE5 inhibitor drugs like vardenafil hcl that can help him achieve the erection he needs for sex. These ED medications are very effective because they facilitate effective transport of blood towards the cavities inside the penis. The best thing about PDE5 inhibitor drugs is that using such drug does not give you an instant erection but the capacity to produce one. This means that as long as the drug is in effect in your system, you will be capable of producing an erection when sexually stimulated.
Vardenafil hcl is the generic version of the popular and very effective ED medication, Levitra. However, due to the high cost of branded ED medications, most men with ED who cannot afford such luxury, especially if they frequently need to take the medication on a daily basis due to an active sex life, prefer to use Levitra’s generic alternative because both drugs basically have the same overall effect. The problem though is finding vardenafil hcl for sale. There are hardly any pharmacies that have vardenafil hcl for sale on their shops. And those that do have vardenafil hcl for sale in their shops may not even be in your locality, thus making it hard for you to locate these stores with vardenafil hcl for sale.

If you are looking for vardenafil hcl for sale, your best bet will be to look for it online. It is actually easier to find vardenafil hcl for sale online because you allow the search engine to do the search work for you. The truth is that there are many online merchants that have vardenafil hcl for sale among their list of products. There are even online merchants with websites particular to having just vardenafil 20mg for sale. With the number of websites to choose from, all you need to do is find the right one that makes the best offer in terms of price per pill along with shipping costs.
Most men with ED these days actually buy their ED medications online. It is not only convenient buying such products online, but you are able to maintain secrecy over your embarrassing situation as well. The truth is, most men will not discuss their erectile issues with other men or even their friends. This makes the ability to buy ED treatment products online a great relief because you are safe from prying eyes over the products you are buying, as is the case when you buy at your local pharmacy.
I feel like a dog person who became a cat person . . . a skier who became a snowboarder . . . an evening person who became a morning person . . . because I drink tea now. Me. The coffee girl. Drinks tea. And I like it.
So many colors. Tons of flavors. I can drink it at night and it won’t keep me up until 3am.
I have an “emergency kit” in my purse. It contains essentials like a hair band, dental floss, an extra pair of contact lenses, and quarters. Now it also holds a tea bag. I added it after going to a restaurant the other day where they had three tea choices: icky, yucky, or gross. It reminded me of the days when I used to be a caffeine addict yet was stuck in a meeting where the only coffee option was a stale, burnt cup of sludge.
Anyway, so I now keep a tea bag tucked away for such predicaments. That’s me. The tea girl.
