I fell out of the loop for a moment, caught in a swirl of perfectionism. Suddenly I remembered that it’s not about being perfect, it’s about showing up authentically in the perfection of this moment… and so I came back.
Hi friends… While I was away teaching yoga on retreat (and I didn’t have access to Wifi) I fell behind on my posts, as you can see. And then I came back home and my son was sick and I’ve been sleep deprived, overworked, overwhelmed and undernourished. Nonetheless, I kept plodding away at my posts for my 48 days of gratitude and I continued posting them to Facebook and Instagram. I hope to catch up here soon. Just wanted to say…I’m still alive!
When we aren’t trying to get somewhere else or do something else or be someone else or feel something else We might just pause long enough to realize that where we are and who we are is actually pretty great.
Dear God, Thank you for this day. Thank you for waking me up again. Thank you for giving me strength to make it through, even when I’m tired, sick, and all I want to do is rest. Thank you for helping me to be the most loving mom I can be to my kids, for tending to their needs joyfully, patiently, and with gratitude that I was blessed with children (even when sometimes I wish I weren’t!). Thank you for cleansing my heart of envy when I see husbands taking care of their wives with love in their eyes. Help me to embrace my loneliness, so that if it is your will one day, I might celebrate partnership again.
