Hi! How have you been?! I know, I know… it’s been a while.
I wish I could say I’ve been doing something amazing that has consumed all of my time.
Actually….. I HAVE been doing something amazing… it’s called LIVING 🙂
Don’t you agree that if you woke up this morning you are lucky? There you are breathing, stretching, waking up to enjoy a beautiful day… coffee in hand… birds singing… happy kids… happy husband… your making your plans for this glorious day and then SOMETHING happens….
Could be the cat threw up in the hallway and you didn’t realize it until your bare foot stepped into the warm mushy pile of vomit yuk!
Could be that your water heater decided to have a blow out in the middle of the night.
Could be a devastating email or phone call.
Could be your beautiful smart adorable child did not shut the freezer all the way when he got the last ice cream sandwich… and you didn’t realize this until you came home later that day and wondered what the heck was leaking all over the garage…..( that was fun.)
It’s called LIFE. There’s two ways to deal with it…..
Isn’t it amazing how you can be skipping along your yellow brick road and BAM! Out pops a little munchkin that throws you a curveball…. Quick! Drop everything and catch!
When life throws me a curveball or pulls the rug out from underneath my feet, Trust me, I freak out… but then I take a deep breath (or 5) and consider what should be done.
I think I learned that in yoga… Breathe through it, Ease into the pose and you will know what your body is capable of. That super smart, super cool, yoga instructor was awesome… I think of the way she teaches yoga often.
Life is full of surprises. We need to breathe through them and enjoy that we are living. What is the alternative?
I like living 🙂
