I do Yoga because I love myself

It's a strange thing, realizing you have somehow completely lost yourself. When I was a teenager and self worth seemed to be base on who liked you I struggled! It wasn't until I was in my 20's that I realized who I am and that I LOVED myself. I had the perfect life! I was single, and I didn't care! I took care of myself!! I still dreamed and wanted a family desperately. I wanted to be a wife and a mother. But it wasn't until I first loved myself that I was able to let someone else love me enough to marry me... and he did. 
Today while getting lunch for the kids I decided to turn on some Yoga videos, maybe just to watch them, maybe to do one or two pose. I don't remember doing any Yoga since I got married but Yoga was a huge part of my life before. It was one of the ways I found balance and happiness in my life. 
When I turned the first video on I followed the simple instructions to take a deep breath and to my surprise it felt amazing, like breathing for the first time in ages! I finished giving the kids lunch and got them down for their afternoon nap all while playing Yoga videos in the background. Once they were asleep I decided to find a simple short video and actually do it. I stood straight for the first pose, a pose I've done so many times before, took a deep breath, and started crying. It felt like I was seeing my best friend after years of being apart. 
I have spent so long being mrs. B, mamma (mum) or the makup lady that I forgot who Unnur is. She is so much fun!!! Mrs. B takes care of and loves her husband, mum takes care of and loves her kids, the makeup lady takes care of and loves her customers... Unnur needs to come back, for at least a little bit every day, because she takes care of and loves herself! She makes Mrs. B, mum and the makeup lady so much better at what they do best. I've missed her!

Three and a half years married and we are next!

J and I went to a wedding last Saturday. It was beautiful and wonderful and so good for us!! We don't take the time to go on a date often enough, mostly because it can be a challenge finding someone to babysit. Someone who our kids will actually let babysit them... I might have to stop worrying so much about them freaking out about us not being there... they do much better with being babysat than I like to admit!
Anyways, we were there, sitting close to the back of the chapel, holding hands and sitting close, enjoying the peace and quiet, remembering our own wedding. It was... bliss.
After the ceremony we stood up and waited until it was our turn to walk out of the chapel when a women sitting behind us says "you two are so in love! I bet you're going to be next!!" ... say what?!?
Ohh yes... we don't wear rings. I was too caught up in the fact that someone just commented on how much in love we are that I forgot we don't actually wear rings. It was a wonderful reminder that we need to treat each other the way we used to when we were dating, so in love! It doesn't have to be all the time... but regularly! very very regularly!! It was refreshing, and wonderful, to have a complete stranger comment on our love, not knowing that we have almost 4 years together and two kids at home. I wan't to keep being that couple... until we have 60 years and great grandchildren... and even longer than that!

The Struggles of an Introvert Mother

When I was younger I don't think I was an introvert. I LOVED people! I wanted to spend all my time with and around people, making new friends and making memories with the "old" ones.
Then after having a responsibility at a centre for young adults where I felt I had to be the life of the party, invite, welcome, plan, prepare, clean up after, make new friends constantly, meet with them regularly. It was a seven days a week job and after 4 years of it I was done. I found myself wanting to spend more and more time alone. Then I got married, and my world revolved around my husband and I felt good! I had an excuse to not be the life of the party anymore, I could be in my own little newly wed world. It was heaven! Then we started a family, and during my pregnancy I had to deal with depression and anxiety. I stopped enjoying my alone time.
Now we have two little ones, almost 1 years old and 2 years old. I LOVE being their mum! I LOVE that I get to stay home with them because of my home based business. I LOVE connecting with them and making memories every day! but I am so emotionally tired! For the longest time I thought I was still depressed and anxious. But I haven't had an anxiety attack since my last pregnancy and I love waking up in the morning, I love my life, I am simply an introvert! I look forward to spending alone time in the evening, I look forward to locking the door behind me to have a 5 minute shower by myself! I look forward to me time, every single day! And I am learning to allow myself to be ok with that :D

WARNING! about the Younique 3D Fiber lash mascara

This is stuff I personally experience while wearing the Younique 3D fiber lash mascara and other Younique products and would like to warn you all about!!

WARNING! Wearing the Younique mascara may cause extreme jealousy in friends and family members who do not own the mascara.

WARNING! Wearing the Younique mascara may cause traffic accidents due to other drivers forgetting to watch the road because they had to check out your lashes!

WARNING! Wearing the Younique mascara often causes members of the opposite sex (and in some cases members of the same sex) to think you are flirting with them.

WARNING! Wearing the Younique mascara may cause your husband or boyfriend to develop a new smile, a very happy "I love how sexy my wife/girlfriend is" type of smile! this can cause some sparks to fly in your relationship... good kinds of sparks.

WARNING! wearing the Younique beauty products may cause your skin and eyes to experience a complete lack of toxins often found in makeup. This can cause non-irritated eye syndrome as well as many other serious side effects (e.g. healthier looking skin, longer lashes, fewer breakouts, overall increased happiness levels).

WARNING! Using the Younique Uplift Eye Serum will make you look much younger than you actually are. This may result in problems such as younger men hitting on you, being asked for your ID much more frequently, a severe boost in self confidence (which has a whole list of side effects of its own).

Overall, super dangerous beauty products!
