Ice cream

the bracelets!

Tony devotions

I love, love the mala beads that Tiny Devotions sent me a year ago. [AutoCorrect changed “‘mala’ to ‘male.'” I got a good laugh out of that.] I really think they bring me luck and good energy. I put the bracelets on when I’m having an “off” day and something about looking down to see them makes me feel better and turn things around. Whenever I need an extra boost or bit of good vibes, you can bet our booty I have my mala beads on. Each color cord has a different meaning, so you can choose to wear one or two, or the entire stack.

From their website:

“Our Tiny Devotions mala beads are perfect for beginnings and endings – goals, struggles, worries, dreams, intentions and prayers.

Mala beads transcend cultures and religions and can be found in some form in nearly every tradition around the world.

The word bead, historically coming from the word “prayer” or “to pray”.

These sacred and beautiful beads help us live in the moment – staying present to the beauty of life.

We combine rudraksha seeds with semi precious crystals and pearls to create beautiful designer malas that each have their own specific intention. Rudraksha seeds are known as the eyes or tears of Shiva – and are worn for their protective and sacred qualities.”

Tiny Devotions kindly offered to send a lucky reader the abundance stack of mala beads, valued at $108.

    My goal this summer is not to be afraid to try to do things I don’t know how to do. Replace a faucet? ok! Run a relay race, why not!

  2. Marina Chekhovskiy on June 6, 2012 at 1:02 am

    My biggest goal for myself- I want to build up my self confidence. I’ve lost a lot of weight, I’m not quite at my goal weight yet, but I have achieved a lot and I want to reach the point where I will feel that I am perfect the way I am 🙂

  4. Fatima Alejandre on June 6, 2012 at 1:37 am

    Since im out of school for the summer, my goal is to work out everyday 🙂

  6. Michelle on June 6, 2012 at 2:03 am

    My goal is to really focus on getting organized. I usually get so overwhelmed when I start big projects, that I tend to just give up. So I’ve decided to break it down into manageable segments, so I don’t feel like I have to get it all done in one day..which would be impossible.

  7. Anna A on June 6, 2012 at 5:28 am

    To update my blog more often! We’re so lucky to be living in Europe and traveling but I have been terrible at keeping my family & friends up to date. Trying to work on that before we move back home…

  8. beth @ a latte inspiration on June 6, 2012 at 5:53 am

    My goal is focus on bringing more positive energy into my life. Not to focus on the negative but focus on the positive. 🙂

  9. Karen on June 6, 2012 at 6:21 am

    My goal is to be more “me” in every moment. If I succeed at that joy, balance and love will surely flow.

  10. Amy W on June 6, 2012 at 6:33 am

    My goal is to be present as much as possilbe and to stopy worrying about either the past or the future.

  11. Jackie on June 6, 2012 at 7:02 am

    A goal I have is to get through moving, medical issues, work, and planning a vacation and to think about the light at the end of the tunnel – the actual vacation!

  12. Kristin on June 6, 2012 at 7:06 am

    The goal I have set for myself this summer is to keep active through my pregnancy.

  13. Floey on June 6, 2012 at 7:20 am

    To stay focused on myself and not to let other people’s lives interfere with mine, especially if they’re negative

  14. Michelle @ Lifewithacrazypup on June 6, 2012 at 7:55 am

    I would like to give a fitness and/or weight loss goal, but I think other goals are more important in the grand scheme of life. Right now, I’m really focusing on trying to be a more understanding and patient wife and friend.

  15. Alexandra on June 6, 2012 at 8:04 am

    My goal is to hold my handstand for a full minute and then gracefully come down into scorpion. Still working on just holding the handstand!

  16. kylie on June 6, 2012 at 8:04 am

    My goal I have set for myself is to be at my healthiest (not even in terms of my weight) by my wedding on August 11th of this year. I want to go into being a newlywed healthy, happy, and fit.

  17. Neena on June 6, 2012 at 9:14 am

    My goal is to procrastinate less, and adopt a “do it now” mentality about things that I don’t want to do, but have to (i.e. chores!).

  18. Naomi on June 6, 2012 at 9:20 am

    My goal is to set a better example for my kids on healthy eating. Being a single parent and working full time, it’s easy to get in the habit of going to the drive thru or cooking from a box for dinner. I want to make time to cook healthy meals and educate my kids on the importance of eating healthy.

  19. Cassie D. on June 6, 2012 at 9:33 am

    My goal is to get into a consistent exercise routine and eat healthier, paying more attention to ingredients and keeping processed foods out of our house. My husband and I have just begun the “starting a family” conversations. It’s probably still a year or more off, but I want us to both be healthy and be able to set a good example for our future little ones. And your blog has been a huge inspiration!

  20. Lauren on June 6, 2012 at 9:41 am

    My goal is to heal my crohns and be the best mommy ever to my daughter! 🙂

  22. dani on June 6, 2012 at 9:53 am

    To finish up and become a certified clinical nutrition consultant!

  23. Lena on June 6, 2012 at 10:31 am

    My goal is to run my first race this summer! My first race is actually a mud run, and I’m trying to be able to finish it in less than 50 minutes.

  24. katie on June 6, 2012 at 10:35 am

    My goal is to do something active everyday. Whether it’s a walk, some yoga, weights, a run, spin class… I feel so much better when I’m getting those exercise endorphins!

  25. Abbey on June 6, 2012 at 10:35 am

    I really want to lose the last 10 pounds and firm up before my wedding in October!

  26. Juliet on June 6, 2012 at 10:37 am

    My goal is to lose those last 5 pounds!

  27. Jane on June 6, 2012 at 10:42 am

    My goal this summer is to wake up early enough to do my workout before work!

  28. Jane on June 6, 2012 at 10:45 am
  29. Sarah Anne on June 6, 2012 at 10:58 am

    I want to lose the rest of my weight by the end of the year, but more importantly, heal my head and heart and be happy with where I’m at.

  30. Sarah Anne on June 6, 2012 at 10:59 am

    I tweeted too! 😀

  31. Alyssa on June 6, 2012 at 12:11 pm

    My goal is to let go of everything toxic in my life as I leave a four year relationship behind. I want to find the beauty in life again and what it means to have faith in love and in myself.

  32. Alyssa on June 6, 2012 at 12:18 pm
  33. Anna @ The Guiltless Life on June 6, 2012 at 12:58 pm

    A great goal is to do something that scares me every day. Yes it’s from the lululemon bags (!) but it’s a great mantra and I try to live by it.

  34. Sherry on June 6, 2012 at 1:37 pm

    My goal is to stress less and be present. I have been focusing on truly living in the moment and enjoying life, it is too short after all. I have 4 kids and they’re growing up so fast and I don’t want to miss a single thing.

  35. Michelle on June 6, 2012 at 1:43 pm

    My goal is to be more positive every day, and to be more present…to my family, friends, to whatever is in my world at the moment.

  36. Courtney Morris on June 6, 2012 at 1:44 pm

    My goal is to stop overtraining and to keep my curves and have a healthy level of body fat, while maintaining my definition and confidence.


  37. Ana on June 6, 2012 at 2:06 pm

    My goal is always to feel good with myself, in my own skin, happy to be surrounded by the wonderful people who make my life complete!

  38. Caitlin on June 6, 2012 at 2:25 pm

    My goal is to overcome my anxiety! I’m really tired of worrying all the time and I just want to live my life =)
