So I haven’t written a post in a looonnngggg time. I haven’t updated my yoga journey and I know everyone is waiting on pins and needles to find out what has been going on. LOL. The reason I haven’t written a post is because I have been so busy writing posts for others and getting paid for it…holla!!!
yoga with adriene
It was about a year ago when I started writing about a yoga journey that I hadn’t even started, but wanted to. One of my readers told me about Yoga with Adriene and the rest, as they say, is history:) If you are a yoga lover and haven’t watched Yoga with Adriene on YouTube, you are definitely missing out. She is my yoga inspiration and helped me on this pathway to following my passion.
Shortly after starting the Yoga with Adriene videos, I decided to take a restorative yoga class at my local yoga studio, Centre Yoga. The instructor, Kerri, was so welcoming and uplifting. I knew this was a place that I wanted to be involved with. A few weeks after that class, I got an email from the studio saying they were looking for a social media liaison for the studios. I emailed with my credentials, met with Kerri and, voila, I have been the social media liaison since July 2017. My pay is free yoga!!!
I thoroughly enjoyed doing the social media, which consists of Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter and Instagram. They don’t have a blog so the writing piece was the only thing I was missing. I had read another blog post about online work opportunities and that is where I found out about Upwork. It is a site that lists all types of online freelance opportunities.
Since signing up with Upwork last summer, I have written over 70 blog posts and I’m now the social media manager for two online companies. It is the best move that I ever made. I have a full time job as a kindergarten teacher, which keeps me very busy. I really needed something that I could do at home part-time. This has been the perfect fit and it is doing something that I LOVE.
bead happiness by kim
Last summer, I also decided that I was going to make meditation mala beads for myself. The first set came out so well that I decided to open an Etsy shop, Bead Happiness by Kim, to sell them. I soon ventured out into making other beaded necklaces and bracelets. Through my Etsy store and Instagram auctions, I have sold over 40 pieces of jewelry. My favorite was a request from a yoga retreat to make 20 mala necklaces and 2 mala bracelets.
So needless to say, it has been a busy year. I read a lot of books on manifesting what you want. While reading those books, I always thought..”Okay…just asking for what I want is going to give me what I want…I don’t know about that.” Well, I have worked hard for it, but I also thought positive thoughts and manifested positive energy and it worked.
Have you followed your passion?
