Writing about yoga is hard.
Because of the language and personal nature of what happens on the mat, posts and article don’t always have the same kind of reach as your run of the mill exercise blog.
After five months out of commission due to injury, getting back to my mat [...]
There are many roads to success, hard work being the sign that says, “Go!”.
But, the journey there can sometimes feel overwhelming. Sometimes, impossible.
Visualization is a tool that many use to guide them to their goals.

My friend Claire sent me a text today to let me know she’d sent something to my email. As we’ve been working together on a couple of projects, I expected it to be related.
What was sent, however, were paragraphs so lovingly crafted that I teared up in the car as [...]
For as much as I love art, color and design, I’m hopeless when it comes to interiors.
I’m not really sure why I’m so hopeless, except that unlike clothing that can be easily changed, the permanence of a painted wall or an upholstered chair is too much pressure for someone with my [...]
I’m having trouble writing anything organized or analytical when the sun is shining and the ocean tide can be heard from where I sit.
Instead, I’m letting Kiersten White (author of the Young-Adult series of books that begins with Paralnormalcy) speak for me this morning.

Here’s the thing about writing.
It has to be organic in order to get to the next piece that might or might not be the one that connects you to the world, but will always connect you to yourself.

The hub for all I do, marthawills.com documents life from a working mom's point of view. When not mothering, I manage the social media needs of small businesses through Wills Media Group, LLC, and write a weekly column for Raleigh's News & Observer online entitled, Are We There Yet? Most recently, my passion for health and wellness led me to become involved as a consultant for Beautycounter, a company that's making a difference by educating about toxins in products, spreading the word via the web.
