Time for me

All this week my schedule had me going non-stop. To top it off this morning I awoke to find there was a leak in my water dispenser. Gallons of water drenched my floor and I had to order a new dispenser, another expense to add to our list of things we need for our home. I think life throws at us all kinds of curveballs as little reminders to take time for ourselves, to slow down, to daydream a bit if you may. I cleaned up the mess and instead of being angry at the lake our kitchen had become I started thinking of things I love to do and would do today.
I promised myself to close my schoolbooks, turn off my phone, stay home and make time to read something that was nourishing spiritually.
While I cleaned the rest of my home I dreamt of far away places I'd like to discover,
I took a warm shower and sprayed myself with something pretty that brought back a wonderful memory,
And did a series of gentle asanas that helped me feel at peace.
Om Shanti.

  1. I hope you had a good day with your book and no phones! I need a day like that-- harder now that I take care of my grandson every day. But, then he smiles and it's worth it. :-)
