Just Keep Swimming...

I was sitting with my sister at Global Tribe Cafe (having some incredible vegan food!!) and she was telling me about her experiences with Yoga and Meditation.  One of her stories made me laugh a lot, but I also found inspiration in what she said, so I thought I'd share it here on my blog.
