Hello BeLoveDs. Happy Saturday during the time of Covid from my ShelterIn Place….my backyard yoga mat.
Everyone should have one…that place to go inside and dwell for a little while.
Think of this place as a gift from the present time, of a pandemic, and the call to shelter in place. Maybe the call is bigger than that? Maybe the call is to learn to slow down and find stillness from within.
This morning I enjoyed listening to Oprah talk about well being and focus on a zoom call posted on Facebook. I love technology. I rolled out my mat and listened while I flowed through my own practice and ended with the meditation that was shared at the end of the online meeting. What a gift! Thank you, Oprah for sharing your wellness journey.
My wish for you is to enjoy this day, as it unfolds. Stay well.
I am still practicing, seeing everyone’s humanity and the gifts of our shared sisterhood and discovering ways to connect, through our confidence, vulnerabilities, bravery, abilities, gifts, grace, strength and perfectly imperfect ways of being human.
We bought new board games this break and played together. This made me very happy! I loved watching the cousins play together at my parent’s house and I loved playing at my house too.
I absolutely love playing games and am so quietly competitive and have been my entire life. I silently laugh when I win and beat my kids and husband. That seems like such a bad trait, yet at least I’m good at something!
My favorite question tonight that my family had to answer for me, wondering what my opinion would be was, “if I could be the best in the world at something, what would I choose?”
What would you choose? What would you want to be the best at?
I thought about my answer while they wrote down their thoughts. I was happy with their ideas on what I might think I’d like to be the best at. They chose: teaching happiness, soccer, and wife/family woman.
They made me smile. I had to pick from their ideas and I chose wife/family woman as my top pick.
I am a wife and family woman and those roles make up my primary identity.
My choice was to be the best me I can be. Here I am.
Of course I picked the philosophical question – next time I’ll pick “what would be the weirdest job” and stump them! 🙂
Today I enjoyed family time at the ice skating rink, celebrating the holidays with friends and family. Thanks to K&B for hosting all of us.
Today was good.
I was also thankful that my family helped me wrap all the presents today and we were done within 2 hours. This was a huge change from years gone by and they took the stress away. This made me very happy!
