Lets start with this story. NO JOKE, I get the mail, and there is a package in the package pick up for me. And its got Goldfish all over it, like you see in the pics. Well, I TRULY thought I was in one of those commercials like the Swiffer ones with the old people. I was waiting for cameras to pop up from the bushes. I LOVE GOLDFISH and here is this box addressed to me. So I opened it up, and what a surprise! I mean my freaking friends are the best. I just smiled. I am so happy. And it just was the best thing for me on this hump day. The pictures say it all. I mean, I am the lucky one who is fortunate enough to have these friends and role models. I look up to them both and feel the love from across the world and out of town. Love you guys!!! XOXO
Now prior to this Goldfish goodness, I was already planning what I was going to write about today on the ride home from work. My new gig offers yoga at lunch on Mondays and Wednesday. The focus this week for each day was Acceptance and Giving. And let me tell you this yoga teacher is great. I really truly felt like I had a grasp on things finally after Monday’s practice. As you can tell after last post, I was a little bitter. But I do feel better. I feel like I opened up and accepted that this is my new routine, my life for the next 9 months, and there is nothing I can do but accept and enjoy the ride.
Along the way, sometimes I will have to give. Give thanks, give in, give back. I hope this blog is part of my way as giving back. To let everyone know that I am normal. Your average joe with a big dream. I hope I give thanks daily. Thanks for my family and friends for support. Thanks for my health and body strength. Thanks for food and friendships. Also, I may give in. Throw the flag. And with that, I am accepting that…. maybe tomorrow is not gonna be the best day to get a workout in. Or maybe my body needs rest and I must surrender to a glass of wine and bed. All this realization has made me very calm this week. Very content with things this week. If you haven’t done yoga, I really recommend it. I cried today. Its been a while since I have cried. Not for anything, but yoga does that. You really leave it on the mat. Let go of the day, and be in the moment. I challenge anyone who is actually reading this to take a yoga class at least 1-2 times a week. Anyways, I am off to bed! Happy hump day!
