A Perspective From Within a Black-Woman-Owned Business Life (and ‘Magical Unicorn’ at My World Registry!)

From the time I can remember I’ve always been exposed to the idea that we as human beings have the power to create the world we want. When I first began learning yoga, I experienced a huge version of that in my body. It felt like I had the power with in to be present, aware about my body, my mind, my breath, and my whole experience of my life. While I was having this huge transformational experience on and off the mat, I was still experiencing a sense of not belonging.Even with in the yoga community after 10 years of taking classes in NY, New Orleans, and TX, I hadn’t met one instructor that wasn’t white, able bodied, and affluent. This was a huge problem because not only was there a lack of representation but there was an underlining, unsaid, and reoccurring message that made me feel unwelcome to that world.When I made the choice to become a yoga instructor it was a major decision that went beyond the surface of having a job. This was a role that directly pushed up against the feelings I had of what my place in society was, what I had access to, what was [...]

Change is Inevitable and the Essence of Human Nature

It's hard to picture anyone not having been affected by the Coronavirus global situation. COVID-19 has affected not only businesses but, most severely, us as human beings. We’re all in this together. My hope is that we continue even more, to rediscover ways to unite rather than separate, love rather than rage, grow rather than stagnate or shock, and learn rather than devolve and give our power to anti-natural diversions. As the main human behind the My World Registry experience, I’ve been shaken hard by the shutdowns, cancellations, reductions, and new home-based jobs I didn’t have before (homeschooling, anyone?) I have all the natural human limitations on the amount time and energy I can dedicate to the variety or tasks I’m responsible for. At this time, prioritization has been my Boss. But my true mentor and expert teacher continues to be life itself. By not giving in to fear and despair in the face of all the closed doors, I have been able to see incredible new doors opening up. You guessed it, I jumped right in to all the opportunities for: Adaptation, Healing and Wellness, Learning New Skills, and Being Creative: the core of My World Registry and the BEST gifts [...]

FOUR ways to give back and show gratitude on your gift registry

November is the month of gratitude but there are ways to give back and show thanks all year long - especially through our gift registries. There's nothing like getting a new gift/experience just like there's nothing like GIVING a gift or experience.  Here are FOUR ways you can show your gratitude using your gift registry.  1. Get some, give some When you're registering for an experience, be sure to add a way to give back, whether you're traveling the world or learning a new language. If traveling is on your to-do list, let your contributors know that you'll be working a volunteer mission into your trip. If learning is at the core of your receiving experience, perhaps offer to teach those on your registry list a little bit of what you learned at a hosted party at the end of the year. There are infinite ways to give a little while you're getting a whole lot. Leave your ideas in the comments below. 2. Notes of gratitudeIt's an oldie but a goodie. While we here at My World Registry are far from traditional, there are some traditions worth holding on to, like writing personal thank you notes to those who make your experience dreams come true. You [...]
