Make the Most of Yourself in New Hampshire
Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “Make the most of yourself…for that is all there is of you.” It is with this thought in mind that I send you this Random Note of Gratitude, a weekly gesture I make to a stranger, to say thanks for being who you are. In a culture where we are bombarded with images of all it is that we are supposed to be, it’s sometimes hard to remember, appreciate, and love who it is that we actually are and to know that that is enough. So for what it’s worth Arthur, a woman you don’t know is sending gratitude from Colorado, thanking you for making the most of yourself and putting your best self out in the world. It isn’t always easy, but it is worth it. Thank you!
All the best,Jana

Ralph Waldo Emerson Gratitude Quote
Matthew Sanford Waking Gratitude
You have inspired my weekly Random Note of Gratitude! Often when inspired by an individual, I will actually send my note to another person with the same name, but this time I wanted to go direct to the source. That being said, as much as this is a love letter for you, it is also a love letter for Matthew Sanfords everywhere and for all human beings really.
By complete, utter “random google chance” I have stumbled upon your work – or rather, my mom did and shared it with me. Your grueling, bittersweet, and profoundly life affirming journey and the quiet simplicity and beauty with which your words express that has touched me deeply and captured my imagination. In a world where perfect bodies doing perfect yoga poses are but an instagram feed away, your book “Waking” has triggered me to remember why I loved yoga the first time I got on my mat and why I continue to practice today. Exhilarating though the striking of poses may be, for me it is the creating of space to embrace and breathe into the silence, dark though I fear it may be, that is the truly sweet and transformative work. It’s at this intersection that I am able to connect my mind with my body, if only for a fleeting moment, and sip the sweet nectar of presence in being.
From the bottom of my singing heart, I thank you Matthew for bravely being who you are, for courageously having the experiences you have had, and for transforming them into your magnum opus. The world breathes easier because of you.
With love and gratitude,Jana

Plastic Saddle Nat Stuckey Gratitude
I just got turned on to a groovy, old country tune by Nat Stuckey called, “Plastic Saddle.” As good of a personal theme song as I’ve ever laid ears on, I’ve been inspired to send my weekly Random Note of Gratitude to you, another man that shares his name. I hope you have a theme song of your own Nathan, a little number that lights you up, quickens your step, and allows you to channel the complete amazingness that is you. For being in this world and doing your thing as only you can, I’m sending you my most heartfelt, “leather saddle” kind of gratitude. Anything less just wouldn’t do!
All the best,Jana

Random Alabama Aubrey Gratitude
After randomly selecting your name, I am sending you this Random Note of Gratitude to say Happy Spring and more importantly, thanks for being you! Life can be challenging, busy, and downright hard sometimes…fortunately, it’s also quite beautiful. So for doing your part to make the world a little better - whatever that may look like - and for smiling even when the going gets tough, you have my heartfelt gratitude Aubrey.
All the best,Jana

Moore Gratitude for Kelli
I've had the pleasure of teaching yoga to a new client named Kelli Moore the past month or so. She has inspired this Random Note of Gratitude, which is kind of fun because there are a lot of Kelli Moores in the world. Thanks to each and every one of you for being you!
For no other reason than you share the same name as a woman I have recently become acquainted with, I am sending you this Random Note of Gratitude. The Kelli I know has had a rough go of it the past couple years but she has weathered the storm with fortitude and grace and every time we meet she always has a beautiful smile on her face. So! For the tough times you’ve been through, as well as the happy ones, and for wearing a beautiful smile of your own, I would like to say thank you! There may be a lot of Kelli Moores in the world but there is only one you and you are amazing! Sending you all the best!
With gratitude, Jana

Shine On Sweet Lena
A Random Note of Gratitude inspired by my brother's beautiful partner Lena! Happy 30th girl!!!
Inspired by my brother’s girlfriend Lena, I have chosen you, another Lena, as the recipient of this Random Note of Gratitude. It’s hard to believe that Lena is turning 30 on Saturday, for I have met very few women as wise, passionate, and brave at such a young age. I don’t know you, but I’m quite certain that you have your own brand of fire and creativity, a way of being in this world and connecting with others that is entirely your own. And it is for being you, plain and simple, that I would like to say thanks. You are a beautiful, amazing woman and your presence on this planet makes a difference. Shine on sweet Lena!
With love and gratitude,Jana
Lena is an incredible photojournalist. You can check out her work here. janabozeman
Cherry Blossom Poppin'
Everything is beginning to bloom out and it's absolutely lovely! Think of this as a Valentine's love note in April, from the one and only Pablo Neruda. I don't know about you, but I definitely have a bad case of spring fever.
It turns out that spring is indeed the season for love, scientifically speaking. Check out this piece from NPR here. janabozeman
