I Can See The Dawn

Life in the self publishing lane has improved. When Balboa heard my concerns, when I got to the right person (always important), circumstances changed quickly and I received a competent human to work with. The difference (duh) is remarkable not only in the speed of response, the content in emails back and forth, but in my state of mind. I feel calmer, taken care of, unruffled.

Another reminder to not stay stuck, to open the channels of energy and communication because therein lie the unexpected goodies of life.

In yoga, we take poses to open spaces. They are generally intentioned for body parts – chest, hip joint, back, jaw. When I feel stuck and overwhelmed, I back up, close off, turn away, the opposite of what my yoga poses are meant to achieve. I imagine, at the time, that I am getting perspective. But more often I am getting isolated and withdrawn, traits accompanied by their own sets of problems.

IMG_0304Yoga classes leave me stronger, more connected, vulnerable and open. The real change of import being the attitude with which I approach what is happening. I believe I am supported so I come from an attitude of security, not fear, knowing that I can handle what comes up, no matter the outcome. It is a very different way to live life.

I am excited about the book and its forward motion, I am excited about my blog and my readers, I am excited about my family members and friends (who I am connecting with on deeper and sustainable levels), and I am excited about the activities in my life. May this day bring you an unexpected nudge inviting you to join, just a bit more, your inside and outside environments.

    Thank you – let me add – so far. I attempt, as best I am able, to stay in the moment. I remain cautiously optimistic for the ongoing process. As always I appreciate your readership and comments. (And don’t forget – your very beautiful words shall appear on said book cover!)

  3. Living in the now is difficult to master but it brings a “peace of mind that surpasses understanding.” No one is promised tomorrow, a truth that becomes more immediate as we age.

  4. What an upbeat, lovely posting and the best update you could give. I simply cannot wait to hear the news that it’s “hot off the press!” Isn’t this so exciting?!!

    You are so right about Yoga…when I don’t do it for a long period of time I can immediately tell the difference. Great to hear things are improving!

      Thank you. I sometimes wonder if I create problems to see how I’ll handle them! But I, too, am thrilled that this experience has improved. Markedly. And yoga does bring a peace, presence, and concentration that helps me tackle (in a nice way, not like linebackers) what comes up.

        I think sometimes we all do create problems ourselves, you are not alone in that 🙂

        And yes with Yoga I feel life is more centered. Big time. I can focus more, and like you said, I feel an inner peace.
