I made it through my three nights on!!!
Now sleep and fun tonight!!
I was up at 3:15 pm and was SO TIRED. I immediately hopped in the shower and started getting ready because book club was starting at 5 pm!
By the time I was showered and dressed I was feeling a LITTLE better but still just so tired.
But then our friend came over, the wine was poured, the conversation started, and the laughing began! It was a GREAT night. I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE when you can meet up with a friend after a long absence and it’s like no time has passed at all 🙂
We had plenty of talking over a hearty meal (spaghetti, salad, bread with Italian dipping oil…coconut lemon cookies for dessert!). Then we situated ourselves down with coffee and a blanket for watching the movie that went along with our book club book…The Martian. I actually thought it did a pretty good job of keeping me entertained, even though there were SEVERAL deviations from the book (I guess that is probably to be expected).
We broke our night up around 11:15 pm and then Kimm and I snacked on an English muffin before heading up to bed.
I REALLY hope we can try meeting up once a month because it was such a refreshing, FUN evening!!
Meditations from the Mat (Day 53)…
~~yoga de-ages us — we regain physical powers that we may have lost over the years as our spines grow supple and our muscles grow strong
~~forgiveness does for the SOUL what the yoga postures do for our BODY
~~forgiveness cannot be self-serving
~~the most important reason for forgiveness is our belief in interconnectedness — because we are all one, what we cannot forgive in others, we cannot forgive in ourselves
~~forgiveness is therefore an act of SELF-LOVE
~~by loving ourselves, we love all of humanity
Things making me happy today: finally done with my three days on!!!!, book club with A, talking and laughing with a good friend, watching The Martian
