Yay! My super type A self made it to a full 30 days of meditation! No it wasn't 30 days in a row but I did it. If I fell off the wagon, I simply got back on. I have to admit, this did require some discipline. I did things like, go to bed early so I had some extra time in the morning to meditate. I found that I was more likely to meditate if I did it first thing in the morning. I was able to do it at night and in the middle of the day as well but that wasn't as common. There's something about the stillness and quiet of the morning that makes this the perfect time to zen out.
I sit on my ottoman again, set the timer and bliss out. My mind runs through all the tasks that I need to do to sell my house, drop price, move this piece of furniture to the other house, clear out the dog room and make it River's bedroom, sell this, sweet pine needles off the pool house, etc.
It's a quiet time of the year and I know it will get busy so I think, how can I prepare? What can I do now so that when it gets busy, then my life is easier? This is such a big change for me. I feel the sense of loss for selling this house because I put so much time, energy and love into it. But at the same time I feel a lightness for being free to take the next steps in life. It's like a new chapter is about to begin.
For some reason, I've been feeling happy lately. Mostly because I am having such a good time teaching yoga and connecting with my students. I have new friends and relationships in my life and it's been fun. Today I'm going to see Bumblebee at the theaters in 3D and I'm excited to take my kids because my little boy is in LOVE with Transformers. I'm happy to have them home for Christmas break and to be able to spend time with them. I am so lucky to have the best kids ever. They are a challenge for me, don't get me wrong but they are also super sweet and loving. Last night we watched The Iron Giant and River my 3 year old was telling me the whole plot line. It was adorable listening to his baby voice talk about the movie.
There is so much to write about but the buzzer buzzes and my time is over. Thank you for listening if you have been following this. I love and appreciate each and every one of you. From my heart to yours, peace! Happy Holidays everyone!
