Taking in the Mountain Air
Happy Monday! I hope all of you had a great week last week/weekend. I was traveling a lot, and really needing to focus on the moment, so I left my computer at home. I have to say it was nice to take a break from the computer. The theme at yoga this month is stillness, and while I'm not around my yoga studio at this time, I can relate to that immensely. It has been a little bit of journey since October for my family. I'm happy to say that lots of healing has taken place, and will continue to work in our lives. Sometimes letting go of hold habits and old ways can be scary. Sometimes we have to let go of the ideas/descriptions that once "defined us" so that new ones can appear. Stillness can be a big part in that healing. When painful things happen we often look to outside sources to distract us, instead of going within. As I take this week in the mountains, I'm going to make an effort to be still. Breathe in the mountain air and just love the present moment and what it delivers.
I hope all of you have a great and wonderful day. Take some time for yourself. Turn the computer off, turn the television off, and just be still.
