I’ll never forget my week in Egypt when all we listened to was Beyonce because the girls I was with believed it to be her birthday week. I had to break it to them that “nine-four” was actually “September 4th” and not “April 9th.”
We still listened to her on repeat.
Anyway, tonight after Michelle Obama’s inspiring speech, my roommate and I listened and (attempted to) dance to this. Annnd now it’s time for Destiny’s Child throwback….
This movie was my childhood right here. ♥
One day, princess Sita saw a wounded deer in the woods, and she begged Rama to go and help it. Rama drew a circle in the ground and said to her ”This is a magic circle. So long as you stay inside it, no harm can come to you.” That night, the princess heard a horrible cry. Thinking it was her beloved Rama in danger, the princess ran from the circle to answer the cry. She soon came across an old beggar man. Although she had no money to give him, she could not refuse his plea. As soon as he had the bracelet, he transformed into the ten-headed demon, Ravana. He grabs her and takes her to his palace, where he intends to make her his bride.
The evil Ravana locked the princess up in his tower. There she stayed for many weeks, just staring out her window, missing her Prince Rama terribly.
When in spite of all efforts one fails to catch a train, does this not make it clear from where all one’s movements are being directed? Whatever is to happen to anyone, anywhere, at any time, is all fixed by Him; His arrangements are perfect.

Last night I completed a whole hot yoga class in a Pink yoga pants and a sports bra. And I loved every steamy moment.
“Yoga in sports bra” was one of my new years resolutions last year and while it took me a year to get around to doing it, I’m glad I did!
If you haven’t tried it already, I highly recommend it. Everyone is so wrapped up in their own practice that you don’t have to worry about anyone staring. Plus, you get a better look at what muscles you’re using and your alignment. The whole time I made sure my abs were tight and I left feeling even more confident about my body.
Do this if you are looking to get fit before summer! You’ll get a good preview as to what your body is going to look like in a bikini. Only a couple of months, ladies!
