Early this morning after journaling and prayers, I once again returned to a simple beginner yoga practice. I moved through one pose after another feeling the release of tension and enjoying how the stretches made me feel. Why then do I skip this essential piece of my health puzzle? For a while I was practicing every morning and now I'm once a week!
In the quiet darkness of my morning as I bent forward stretching stretching stretching as far as I could, I vowed once again to make this morning ritual a daily practice. I'm writing yoga on my to do list each day. I don't skip knitting, or eating, reading or walking. I don't skip brushing my teeth, taking a shower or cleaning the house. See it's simple. I know that in two weeks this yoga practice will once again be part of my daily morning routine. I want that and I need that.
Have you noticed how fall is completely here? Yesterday on our walk, Frodo and I noticed the chill in the air that was more like winter than fall. The deer are enjoying a daily nap in the afternoon right outside the fence. Frodo is losing his mind over that. He barks and barks, leaps and runs, completely possessed. The three deer just look at his crazy behavior. Of course, when I go outside they sit pretty, when I run in to quickly grab the camera, they saunter off into the woods. Don't worry, now the camera is on the counter at the ready!
Do you have a wish for a daily practice that is good for you but difficult to keep? I'd love to know!
