It's not that often that I write these in a notebook but today is one of those days! I read an email this morning from a friend who wished me a happy anniversary. It took me a moment to figure out what anniversary I had missed seeing as I don't have one of any significance. Then I realize it's mid-July. I officially started my Yoga business 9 years ago! Although I miss the old home studio, I also enjoy driving to different locations around town, there's always so much to see on the road. I started practicing 18 years ago. It's pretty incredible how my life has changed since then. They say, "When the student is ready, the teacher will appear." That was definitely the case for me.
I am reminded of all the amazing people I've had and have in my life. The last couple of weeks have been a little more challenging, Then today I'm inspired by so many different people. I sit to write at Neck Point in the sun watching the sailboats go by and waves crashing into the rocks I'm on. It's incredibly windy so I'm using my belly to keep the page from flipping over. I've found the perfect seat in a rock with back support and my backpack for comfort, though I squished my granola bar, I forgot was inside. It comes equipped with a spot so my water bottle isn't able to roll away into the ocean. The one feature I couldn't find in my last rock spot. I've already kicked one off a cliff by accident into the river.
At the end of my class this morning I got to share the story of how yoga started my journey to where I am today. Seems like a good way to celebrate an anniversary.
After class I threw some ingredients into the crock pot so dinner will be ready once I get home. I have more time to spend at the park, so now to continue on my hike before I head to the farmer's market.
As it comes time to share this with you, I thought I had lost my whole blog when I couldn't find it saved on my site, only to remember it was written in my notebook, sitting right beside me as a reminder for the last five days. I thought these were supposed to be the lazy days of summer, it's rare to just have a moment these days.
