Happy 4th birthday to my blog!

How has it been four years since this post?  CRAZY!

When I first started blogging, I had absolutely no idea this little space on the internet would bring me so much joy.  I knew My Inner Shakti would be the creative outlet I needed to ramble on and on about the things that interest me.  However, I never thought about the opportunities it would afford me.  And I most certainly never thought about all the amazing people it would bring into my life from all over the world.

Thank YOU for everything!  Every single comment, social media interaction, email, etc. brings a smile to my face and fills my heart with gratitude.  As cheesy as that sounds, it’s the truth.  Lots of love to each and every one of you!  I hope our internet friendship continues for years to come!


Not sure why this seemed fitting for today, but I thought I would share some snapshots from my Tuesday.  Perhaps it’s because sometimes I feel like I only stick to topic blogging and don’t really share much from my everyday life.  Perhaps it’s because I love it when bloggers share the bits and pieces of their lives that resemble my own and I want to do the same. 

Anyway, here are some pictures from a regular old Tuesday in the My Inner Shakti household.

I definitely reset my alarm twice this morning!  Thank goodness I live walking distance from the office.

I’m going to share more about the Deliver Lean meal plan service I’m trying out this week in a much more detailed blog post.  In the meantime, let me say this – the meals are so delicious and so filling.  More to come!

Deliver Lean Breakfast
I decided to use the first 30 minutes of my lunch hour a little differently today.  Instead of going home, making lunch, and watching TV, I decided to go for a walk!  This will likely become a regular thing.

Lunchtime walk 
The last 30 minutes of my lunch hour were spent eating this delicious salad, drinking this juice (it was surprisingly refreshing), and browsing the internet a bit.

My new favorite pants (the Sloan fit) from Banana Republic were delivered today.  More to come on these soon because they are amazing and I think everyone should at least try them on.

Vishnu and I walked over to the new Whole Foods before dinner (this could be trouble!).  I’ve been wanting to check it out ever since it opened on January 14th, and we finally got around to making the short trek over.  You guys, it’s such a beautiful store!  My two favorite things about it are the coffee bar and the hot foods bar – sooo many options!

Whole foods 
Well, that pretty much sums up my day.  Nothing glamorous but just the way I like it!

If you’re a blogger, how long have you been blogging? 
What are your favorite everyday activities?

    1. Thank you, K! I remember discovering your blog and thinking – wow, she’s so inspirational! And I still feel that way. 🙂 I look forward to the day we can meet in person!

  1. Happy blog birthday Parita! I’m so glad to have “met” you 🙂

    I started my first blog in 2009 I think. Eek! And my current one is already 2 years old. Crazy how time flies.

    I love that you can go walk by the water on your lunch break, that is just amazing. Have a great day, girl!

    1. Thank you, Kacy! I am so glad I met you too!

      And yes, I feel super lucky to be able to take a quick (and beautiful) stroll during my lunch hour. If we move, it’ll probably be one of the things I miss most!

    1. Thank you! I still remember the day you emailed me about your blog (I think it was Barb who connected us!).

      And yes, I wish we got paid for how much time we put into our blogs…we’d be millionaires!

    1. Me too, A! I can’t wait to meet you either. I’m hoping it’s sooner than later. And don’t you worry, for every meaty muffin you bring me, I’ll have a vegan goodie ready for you!

    1. Thanks, Liz! I love that we’ve been reading our blogs since the beginning. I hope we get to meet one day!
