Blissful Day

Some days when you go to your Yoga class you cannot silence that chatterbox in your mind or leave the busyness of your life or the criticisms of others outside the door. You still benefit from your practice, but sometimes in your practice you do leave it all at the door and listen to your body and give up all those expectations to do more be more and your mind rests and it is such a blissful experience. I know those fellow Yoginis out there know of what I speak.
I had such a bliss filled practice today and it was just what I needed. It really helped me feel centred once again. Afterwards I got to catch up with my beautiful friend and Yoga Teacher Helen for some lunch. Over which it occurred to me what a blessing it is to have friends who truly see who you are and there is no pretense. You can be yourself and just enjoy honest conversation and sharing. Bliss.
Helen has been overseas for a very special family occassion recently and she bought me home a sweet gift of this special pencil case and I absolutely adore it......does this sound like me?  I have new pencils to go in it too which I bought the other day. Oh so happy :) Cute nail file too.
In the sewing department I am trying to do ten things at once but really must get cracking on some more Secret Sewing or else I am going to be putting in some overtime. I did start this.....
The trouble is I keep changing my mind. If I could settle down and decide on one thing I would get further...anyone else like me??? Everytime I see the count down days on people's blog I turn into the rabbit from Alice in Wonderland....you know "I'm Late! I'm Late! For a very important Date"
But for today I am not giving up my feelings of bliss I am going to enjoy it.
Blessings Michelle xxx

  8. Michelle- I think a lot of us are like that - never making up your mind til the last minute! Thats why we have deadlines I think - to force us to decide and take action - more yoga less stress I think is the go.

  10. Sounds like a lovely yoga session. I find that making lists also helps me to focus on one thing at a time - sometimes I think I will forget about what I need/want to make and that is why they buzz around in my head so much!
