Vintage Flow & Finds

For Mac’s on the Move’s first-ever pop-up, we collaborated with dirtybarnVintage! On Saturday, December 8th, dirtybarnVintage made space in their groovy downtown New Bern location for a 75 minute yoga flow led by Kate Mac. We took a much needed a break from the holiday madness and treated ourselves to some mindful movement set to vintage-inspired tunes. Afterwards, we hopped right back into the season by searching for one-of-a-kind vintage finds for those on our "nice" list  with 15% off dirtybarnVintage retail.

the past & the present

There is a difference between celebrating the past and living in it. Living in the past is a practice of distracting yourself from the present moment. A celebration of the past happens in the NOW.

Nostalgia is a feeling of longing for the past. It’s looking back and seeing the really shiny bits, but maybe what we’re really longing for is a way to see the shiny bits in THIS MOMENT. If you take a closer look at what it is you are longing for, you might just realize that it’s all still available to you right now. Longing for simpler times? Simplify your life now. Longing for those disco days? Dance.

The feeling of longing itself is an experience happening in this moment. Feel it.

In this way, we celebrate that past as a tool to bring us back home to the present.


Event quotes & Playlist

Never thought we’d get old, maybe we’re still young
Maybe we always look back and think it was better than it was.
Maybe these are the moments
Maybe I’ve been missing what it’s about
Been scared of the future, thinking about the past
While missing out on now

We’ve come so far, I guess I’m proud
And I ain’t worried about the wrinkles around my smile
I’ve got some scars, I’ve been around
I’ve felt some pain, I’ve seen some things, but I’m here now

Those good old days...
