Sunday Yoga – Rain, Rain Don’t Go Away

“To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance.”

– Oscar Wilde

 

The forecast today calls for rain. I love rainy days. I don’t even mind riding my bike in the rain. I appreciate the cleansing aspect and that it gets the whole world a little quiet.

It’s only been in the past few years that I’ve acknowledged and embraced that I’m an introvert. I used to think that because I was comfortable being social, I had to be social. My sister said she’s heard it said that extroverts gain energy when they spend time around groups of people and introverts gain energy being by themselves.

Rainy days appeal to this introvert.

I can ride with my hood pulled over my face

and give a smile and wave as I ride down the street.

No time to chat gotta get inside,

I’m all wet!

Thanking the rain as I dry off.

 

Namaste y’all.

Wednesday Yoga

Rumi-Quote-about-Doing-What-you-Love

This morning, before my meditation practice I listened.

I listened to the silence outside. I listened to the hum of the heater. I listened to the quiet of the morning. And then I floated inward so I could hear myself. There are mornings that I have to do this. On some mornings I can’t just look inside right away. It requires a gentle invitation.

No rushing. No pushing.

I wait patiently and the door opens.

This is my year to live mindfully.

Namaste y’all.
