Listening to the Rain and more....

I've been keeping busy and happy since my last post.  Don't think I forgot to write.

My fingers are moving on their own this Thursday night, having typed and talked from morning till night on some pretty interesting projects ensuring they see the light of day.  One day soon, I will be over joyed.

I have kept active, hiking with my friend Marlene and her honey Christopher, will bring a compass if going on a new trail next time, but who would think of this on a beautiful Sunday afternoon; running on my favorite trail and hearing the water trickle down the leaves in the morning is my absolute best moment when I realize it happening.

Been in DC a few times, at business lunch after lunch, umpteen conference calls (thank God for those) on a plane, in traffic, in parent teacher meetings, enforcing boundaries, cooking meals and trying to stay as calm as I practice in my meditation. For the most part I have to say, my stress is being managed pretty well (despite unpredictable business/personal/LIFE stuff).  Yes, I can say, some improvement can be felt and boy, good friends rock.

The running 3-4 X's a week, yoga 1X, eating well and nutritious foods when I'm hungry (including the best chocolate around), and forcing myself to "SHUT UP AND MEDITATE!", as my meditation sign says with a Buddha sitting silently,  allows me to create a space among the life I lead.   This I believe, has made the most difference.

Learning to actively listen in disagreement, or in love, is powerful.  I am hearing more than I ever had.   I still have the urge to jump in and add my two cents, but the more I hold back the more I gain and feel less childish, more professional and less needy.  So interesting how that works.

I bid you, Good night!

Omm Downward Dog Day 5

I was so happy to stretch in my regular Friday Yoga class this morning...actually missed my run but wouldn't miss my class with Peace Denise...Nice to see a full house on this incredibly wet and tumultuous day.

Right after drop off with a conference call in route, I was on my way.  No stalling.  Sticking with the system, on auto pilot.  

I never know what I will learn or work on each Friday. 

Today we worked on binding which makes you sweat like a dog.  At least I always do.  Not an easy set of poses but I give it may best.

Denise led us through sun saluations, reminding us to breath through the pain (really important and simply wonderful when you loosen up due to your breathing into the area that's tight).  Ideas and concepts about being mindful, not giving into desires, cravings, impulses, and honoring being in the moment.  Letting things wash away, not to over worry.  All good to contemplate at the end of a busy week and wonderful life lessons to practice, practice, practice. 

I like to call these Friday classes fine tuning my soul while ringing out my body.  It feels so good, yet so hard to do.


Nameste....happy Friday!
