Today, we’re featuring #whitespacewellness#ytt graduate Joy Jacinto @joy_in3d as she takes on our invitation to #shareyourstory of the #roadlesstraveled 💖: "It’s been a little over a year since I became a full-time yoga teacher, meditation guide, Reiki practitioner and visual artist. My life used to revolve around attending conference calls at work AND at home, traveling to various sites and meeting round-the-clock deadlines. Those days, I’d have lunch at 3:00 am and go to bed at 11:00 am.
These days, I design and teach yoga classes, meditate, do Reiki, take naps—and ensure that I launder my yoga pants and sports bras at least once a week. I don’t get paid as much, but the biggest difference is how my life has surprisingly become more complex. When I had a steady job, I could fill the 'void' with to-do lists, performance metrics, corporate projects and profit objectives. Now that I don’t have any of that—no bosses to please or awards to achieve—I’m solely accountable for my life and what I produce.
And this is my version of the #roadlesstraveled. While there aren’t lots of luxurious pit stops along the way, I’ve managed to ease into it knowing that I have family, friends and teachers who support what I do—plus students who tell me at the end of their class that they’re so glad they came. Why I choose to stay on this road is because if what I do allows people to take care of themselves and discover how to craft their own lives authentically, then it’s all worth it.” 🙏

濃尾大花火 NOBI GREAT FIREWORKS
Two cities---Ichinomiya City of Aichi and its neighbor Hashima City of Gifu---jointly held this fireworks display over the Kiso river last night.
Performing at the Magic Castle earlier this year with @scotnery. Look at these dapper gents ready to go all beast mode!
Also... I am of average height. It's Scot that's freakishly tall. Freakishly. Tall.

Check out this 1 minute video (link in bio) that explains how you can use the realization that we have ONE life to help you focus on making the most of it!
We are 3 days out and I’m already missing mornings like this. On the other hand, I’ve done 10 loads of laundry (fo’ FREE), had 0 bugs in my shoes, and taken 4 showers (with a proper bath mat). In so many ways life feels sweet, good and incomplete.
