It seems hard to believe that today is only the third day of the new year. I feel like I’ve been going, going, going since the first and I still have so much more to do.
That’s because, as always, the beginning of January is a time of catching up on all the things that got pushed to the side in December.
Cleaning and organizing the house after the Christmas decorations are down.
Finances (!!! — we didn’t have ONE finance meeting in December…sigh).
Fitness (leaping back in).
Today was a cold, gray, rainy day…all day rain.
Thank goodness the start of the day included coffee 🙂
I was able to go through the fridge and get rid of everything that we will not use. What a good feeling! I put it all out in the trash.
And then I did the yoga this morning that I had wanted to do yesterday (day two of Revolution…INTENTION…it was good…tough, but I worked through it).
Lunch was the same as yesterday — egg sandwich and Pringles.
And then we started working on the finance meeting. We did about three hours. And we are still not done. But you know what? That is okay. We have time tomorrow. It WILL get done.
Dinner was simple — veggie burgers and tator tots.
An after dinner nap was glorious!!
Meditations from the Mat (Day 3)…
~~even though it may seem to make sense to do the 8 limb path linearly, all the limbs must be done simultaneously
~~each limb supports the other limbs
~~our yoga practice helps with this because each time you come to the m at, you worth the entire path, moment by moment
~~once this becomes established on the mat, it becomes established in our daily lives — no matter what you do, you will be doing yoga
Things making me happy today: coffee in my new Carpe Diem mug, emptying out the fridge, yoga with intention, a nice hot shower, Criminal Minds, napping under a blanket
Tomorrow I will be doing the next day of yoga (this being behind a day is driving me crazy but I’m trying to be okay with it!!). I’m also trying to think of a word for the year…
I’m back to work tonight…on for three.
