Patterns

24 Dec

I am in the thick of family time and I am loving it, but I am very aware of old patterns that begin to show up.  All of a sudden I turn into a 16 year old with a messy room, bouncy energy, and little focus.  It is this weird transformation, and I don’t like it.  I feel ungrounded, uncentered, and not in control of my energy.  So the first step to change anything is to notice it, and once I did I started changing some of my actions.

I cleaned up my room, I made time for my yoga and meditation, I went to the grocery store, and I asked what I can do to help?  These mindful choices led to a shift, I felt grounded and more like the 27 year old that I am.  (Ah, I am 27!) I am honoring my family and the roles that are constantly changing in big & small ways, helping to keep harmony & happiness on all fronts.  I am getting outside, breathing, journaling, & planning to do some yoga – so I can be present and open to more family interactions tomorrow.

I’m looking forward to taking this class on Yogaglo tomorrow, led by the wonderful Kathryn Budig, and fully enjoying everything tomorrow has to offer.  Merry Christmas all.
