"Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place."

I will be headed out in April, mostly sticking around Santa Monica and I want to find some cool yoga studios. I’d really love to find a class out on the beach or on a rooftop, anything outside. Extra points if you know of a paddle board yoga class. ;)
Hit me up with ideas if you have them please!
Additionally, I’d like to meet up with a few of you for drinks… let the planning begin! :)

While discussing the issues of prostitution in Milwaukee, my male professor took a moment to let all of us share our thoughts on the subject. He then proceeded to say, with a heavy sigh and long pause, “well, this is what I think…”
He shared that his wife spent years working with women who sold sex for money, some forced into sex trafficking and most sexually abused at one time or another. He stood in front of our class and not once, but twice, got choked up, tears in his eyes and said that these women are 99% of the time the victim and deserve better. That women deserve better. That until we see it first hand or work with these women it’s easy to judge but there’s a dark, corrupt & scary world that most of us can’t fathom.
It was incredibly touching and he brought a few of us to tears. Now that’s what I call a college education.
