I love my dream life; sometimes it's hard to force myself awake. My mind creates the weirdest, most interesting dreams! It can transform the most mundane day-residue dream into a wild adventure. I'm always meeting new people with new faces, too! Where do they come from? I've never met them before, they don't seem familiar in any way, and yet, there they are, present and known in my dream-world! My vivid, polychromatic dreams are easy to recollect and sometimes stay with me throughout the day!
I am grateful for my odd, nocturnal creations of my mind!
I'm also grateful to be "out there" again; after having withdrawn from social life this past year, I have felt ready again recently to "make my way" out into the world again. Part of this is dating again. Sigh. I don't know if I like dating or not. I like the initial excitement and curiousity. I like the hope and the discussions. Let's see what happens. I dislike the disappointment and warning bells (when they go off), or the incongruence of minds and spirit. At any rate, I'm psyched to be meeting someone new this week. It's all fun!
데이트 시간! Time to Date! LOL
Lastly, I'm grateful for the absence of stress in my life, as a result of my yogic practice and renewing my workout regime! Usually, I am feeling anxiety on Sundays, about Mondays, and can't get to sleep. As a result, I'm always tired on Mondays and that is not the way to start a week! Since returning from Yogaville, I've been exercising regularly (minus the week of flu), and steadily practicing pranayama, puja, meditation, and asana. I am firmly confident that the breathwork (pranayama) and puja have had the most profound effect on my mind, in combination with the meditation and asana of course. My body is just so happy with me right now! Whee! I also know these practices are what reduced my sick time from the flu. It was short in duration! Yay! And my body is especially appreciative of the inversions I've been putting it into! HOw I missed sarvangasana! All of this has helped focus my mind and reduce stress so that I feel more confident in my work. I am so grateful to have my energy level back to normal so I can do all this as well! My physical energy and mental energy and emotional energy and spiritual energy were all sapped and empty. They are back!
I am so grateful for my health, my healthy body, and my brio!
...is practicing gratitude every day for 365 days. Began on April 22, 2016, let's see how life changes over the course of this next year!
