A day off…

Friday, January 6, 2017

I made it to my day off!!

I needed it too… I just feel tired.  Need some recharge.

I slept good.  Dinner was simple and delicious — “chicken” parm with spaghetti and corn.

Tonight I want to do a yoga, but my body is just saying rest.  So I’m going to listen to it.

Meditations from the Mat (Day 6)…

~~the yoga sutras lay out two aspects of spiritual practice — abhyasa (practice) and vairagya (non-attachment or renunciation)

~~practice is doing the work (following intention with action)

~~but practice is not a substitute for renunciation 

~~old behaviors that do not support spiritual maturation must be renounced (for example issues regarding body image and nourishment, such as starving, purging or binge eating)

~~yoga supports us as we make a commitment to change

~~practice without renunciation is avoidance; renunciation without practice is not long-lived

Things making me happy today: a stranger at the hospital helping me brush the snow off my car this morning, seat heaters on cold mornings, a day off!!, not feeling rushed

Going to have some popcorn and watch the last Criminal Minds of this season tonight!  And then bed like a normal person and then breakfast…I can’t wait!!
