It rained ALL day today. Mostly just a slow drizzle. But it was dark and dreary all day long…the PERFECT day to do NOTHING.
We slept in…up at 9 am…I don’t know how our dog let us sleep that long 🙂
Breakfast and reading.
I did clean the tub…my only real work of the day besides making dinner and doing the dishes!
Watched DWTS after lunch while Kimm read and napped.
Dinner was tacos and rice…yumm!
Now I’m going to take a nap before heading into work…only two on!!
Meditations from the Mat (Day 111)…
~~what is it that makes life so hard?? the loss of those we love, we regret the past and worry about the future, we feel the pain of ill health, betrayal, disappointment, there are injustices like war, oppression and death
~~the yoga sutras defines the problem as the five afflictions, or kleshas: ignorance, pride, desire, aversion and fear of death
~~under the influence of these afflictions, we are driven away from our true selves and deeper into despair
~~we seek answers outside of ourselves, instead of within…we identify with a material world that is beyond our control and therefore we become consumed with fear
~~yoga destroys this fear and the five afflictions…yoga helps us come home to ourselves
Things making me happy today: rainy, relaxing day!!, watching Survivor and DWTS, reading, snuggling on the couch together, tacos!, only two nights on!!
