JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 6 – YOGA DAY 155 stretching

9 Jun

Day 155: Goals.

It occurred to me tonight that I am two years out. Two years! From surgeries and all that comes with that.

And it is soooo good to be two years out. Two years on the other side. Two years into the future. The two-year stretch. And even though I am still tight in my shoulders, breast and chest, I am two years better.

I asked my resident yoga guru, Jill, about stretches for my chest tonight, and some tips on how to keep stretching out that area that still remains tight. She showed me some cool poses, and those, I will try.

But I am happy to report that being a little tight is a good thing when you’re a lot grateful.

Life sometimes throws us lemons and surgeries. And I am starting to learn that as long as we keep the long view way out into the future while still remembering the perfect moment of “now,” well …all shall be well.

And, even when we’re tight, it’s important not to lose sight on our stretch goals.
Two. Years. Two years!

Now that’s worth doing some yoga.

More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 61 :: blissed off

2 Mar
I’m trying an experiment. Being blissful.
But not in a annoying sort of way, over they top happiness, like this definition describes.

Not that anything is wrong with supreme bliss. But it feels a little hyper and I think I’d like a more gentle approach to life these days.

So bliss it is. In small bits. Gentle waves.

My experiment is to see if I can sustain a blissful state of mind even when that around me won’t provide it. Like tonight, while at the grocery store when a woman wouldn’t move out of my way …. I gently turned around and went in the other direction.

Maybe that is more like avoidance. But I’m wondering how long I can sustain a positive attitude, a blissful state if you will, while still having a grip on the real world.

We’ll see how long it lasts…. how blissed off can I possibly get?
It’s got to be worth a try.

More tomorrow.
