“I’ve learned that making a ‘living’ is not the same thing as ‘making a life’.”
- Maya Angelou

 Remember that Smith Barney ad where the old gentleman said, “Smith Barney makes money the old-fashioned way, they earn it.”?

He was British and he said “earn it” like this, “Eeeeeaaaarrrrn it.”  It doesn’t translate so well in the written word — this is better suited for a video — but I’ll go with it anyway.

That Smith Barney ad came to me this morning on my yoga mat.  Out of nowhere. But you know, it’s never “out of nowhere.”

The ad was insinuating many things which I won’t get into, but from my real-time yogic perspective today, I can say that in my humble opinion, we “earn” things by having a clear intention, visualizing them, thinking about them, talking about them in a positive way, and walking with integrity and grace through the world, being the best person we can be.

The end.

Have the best day ever!
