Thanks for... making a difference.

It's Thanksgiving weekend in Canada - known as the day of giving thanks for the blessing of the harvest and of the preceding year. It's the opportunity to get together, feast, and celebrate life. There are many things that I am thankful for - too many to actually list. Life is pretty damn good.

Around the world shit's going down. The war against ISIS. Ebola in Western Africa. Hurricanes, cyclones and typhoons destroying villages, towns, cities and lives. Lack of food and water. Lack of good health care. The list goes on.

But what I've come to realize is that no matter where we are in the world, no matter what's going on in our life, there is one thing worth celebrating and being grateful for. Always. Because without it life would be pretty empty.


It's friends, family - even strangers that make the difference.

So I thank you. Friend, family, stranger. For teaching me, guiding me, supporting me, loving me, challenging me... because it's our influences on one another that can make the real difference.

I was camping down on the Washington coast a couple weeks back and while lying in my tent 'moving around' thought "Hey. I should film a yoga video in my tent!". But the backdrop there was too beautiful! So I still created a little series that could be done while in a tent, or in bed for that matter, but filmed the video with a view. It's mellow. Gets in all the right areas, and leaves you feeling mobile and ready for what's ahead.
