It's late. I should be going to bed. But, I realized tonight, that
it's already been a month since my last post, and so many good things are happening. Things I want to remember. Changes I want to share.
So first this...
June 8th I became official. And last week, I finished teaching my first six week course. Oh, and I now have my own website too, safehavenyoga.com. New classes coming for the new year. When I look back through this past year and a half, I can say that I literally breathed my way through my divorce. Pranayama baby. And by the way, when is the last time you took a really deep breath? The kind of breath that fills up every single cell in your lungs. Please do take one of these breaths today, and as you exhale, send out anything emotional or physical that is not serving you. Namaste.
And then there was this....
When you have a birthday and a lovely flock of pink flamingos show up in your lawn. (I have the nicest friends)! I remember telling my aunt a couple of years ago, that sometimes I dreaded getting another year older. Her response was, "Well, what's the alternative!?" which I decided was a very valid point.
My birthday this year was so good. I can honestly say I have no desire to go back to the earlier days of my life. There was a lot about those days that was wonderful, but I like me now. I like who I am. I like the peace that I've gained that could only come through spending some quality time on this earth. And, I even like my laugh lines, they remind me of how amazing it feels to smile.
And finally this, more progress on what will soon be my new kitchen....
The moving van comes the first week in December. In our current house we are in full swing packing mode. As the pictures come off the walls, and the boxes are packed, it's a crazy ride. One day I can't wait to move into to our new home, and the next I'm a puddle on the floor as I walk through the ten years of memories that were created in this home. I never hold back those tears when they come. They remind me I'm human. They are a sign of progress as I become sensitized again after months of protective numbness. They are important and vital for me to continue to heal. It's such a good thing to embrace each day without emotional resistance. It's also tremendously empowering.
Change is good. Change hurts, change also heals.
Happy Monday my beautiful readers.
May the changes in your life ultimately be catalysts for good.
