I honestly don’t remember the last time my soul felt this light!!
I mean that in a good way. Not in the way that is empty, because it certainly isn’t. But the weight, the weight that I have been feeling for what feels like forever, it is gone.
I woke up this morning and provided for my husband because he will be providing for me. I made him lunch and coffee as he got ready for work. Then I read a bit, paid a couple of bills (while I watched the Bachelorette), then I did 40 minutes of yoga.
I have been doing yoga nearly daily while I am home. Actually, even last week while we were out of town, before we hit that amusement park for the day I did my yoga practice in the hotel room. I wanted to do it so much I didn’t care that I didn’t have my mat, or that my husband was in the room with me or that I had to watch it from my phone and not the computer.
It always gets my day started on the right foot. A day that had 26000 other steps attached to it, so I knew I would get my exercise in either way. Yoga though, yoga is different. It centers me and really makes me release everything from my head. It allows me to forgive and forget.
Yoga is everything I never knew that I needed in my life. My husband said to me awhile ago, you need to start working out again. Not because he thought I was gaining weight, but because he knows that I have a better day if I exercise in the morning. He knows me so well, but I didn’t need to get back to the gym like I had previously been doing. I have a beautiful hardwood floor in my room, big open space and a yoga mat that just begs to be used. Nearly every morning for the last 2 months or so, I have been doing Yoga in my own bedroom thanks to Yoga with Adriene.
This starts my day light and helps me keep that feeling throughout the day. I am stressed out less, I get frustrated less, I remember to breathe and treat my body kinder throughout the day.
I am lighter….from the inside-out!
It has been nearly 4 months since I wrote the list in the image. I have lost 10 pounds, haven’t smoked in over 2 months, drink more than enough water every day, read my devotion first thing and take vitamins regularly! That is my Me list!
Happy Me, Happy We (my family)!!
