"Phenomenal Woman” 
Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size   
But when I start to tell them,
They think I’m telling lies.
I say,
It’s in the reach of my arms,
The span of my hips,   
The stride of my step,   
The curl of my lips.   
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,   
That’s me.

I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,   
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.   
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.   
I say,
It’s the fire in my eyes,   
And the flash of my teeth,   
The swing in my waist,   
And the joy in my feet.   
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.

Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

Men themselves have wondered   
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can’t touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them,   
They say they still can’t see.   
I say,
It’s in the arch of my back,   
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

Now you understand
Just why my head’s not bowed.   
I don’t shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.   
When you see me passing,
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It’s in the click of my heels,   
The bend of my hair,   
the palm of my hand,   
The need for my care.   
’Cause I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

Yoga & Chocolate: during early class, a woman who was gone for a long time came in. After class she came up to me and said, “you’ve gotten better. you were already really good, but you have gotten even better.” ….my late class just finished, a woman in class was surprised at how I taught, “I never had a class like that before, it was amazing.” she went to her car only to come back to gift me a chocolate bar. I teach out of love. I teach out of helping people feel better in their bodies. I am so filled with gratitude that people accept and love what I do….and random surprise chocolate as appreciation is bonus. :) #yoga #gratitude #ilovemyjob @bendyoga

there is a Korean movie called the Recipe (I love movies and dramas which have food as one of the characters). the love interest in the movie is standing in a grove of trees collecting the blossoms ‘snowing’ down upon him to make wine, when the female lead sees him for the first time. watching it, and even that scene, I wanted to learn more the traditions, the old ways in creating things. #moviememories #cultures #cherryblossoms
