Frigaroni joY

January 22, 2014

So those of you who know me know I love the word frigaroni.  I got it from my mom. She's been saying it since I was about 10, mostly to avoid saying the F word, which didn't work out well because she says the F word more than anyone I know and has been saying it since before I was born, while I was being born, for my entire childhood and she's still saying it now.  


So, we've established the history of the F word in my life and surely you realize that frigaroni is basically a replacement for it.....and just sounds better, gentler.


Like its predecessor the F word, frigaroni can be used to express negative or positive emotion and still it somehow works. Like you could say: "This frigaroni Yoga mat sucks (very counter-intuitive but what Yogi hasn't said it?)."


However, you could also say: "I frigaroni love this Yoga mat."


You get it.  Better.  Gentler.


So today, unexpectedly, I found myself saying: "I frigarnoi love joY."  I use the word frigaroni when I really mean it.....and I really mean it!  


I love joY as in being happy and I love joY as in this name I have given my Yoga business, even though I don't know quite what it all means yet.  Nonetheless, I know it's going to be joYful and it already has been, mostly because of you reading this.  You have offered so much support in only the few short days I have had this website, this blog, this idea, this dream, this goal.....this joY!


You fill me with gratitude which gives me so much more joY!  Thank you.


So, I want to end with a list of some random things that give me joY and ask you to leave a few yourself - either here or on my personal facebook page or on the joY facebook page.  


Let's spread the frigaroni joY!
