Reevaluating

I see that my most recent post provoked a lot of comment and I am taking those comments to heart. It seems that the consensus is that I don't have to be perfect by tomorrow. I am reminded by these comments to be present and to be ok with my present even if it is not what I think it should be. I want to change but that does not mean that I will find instant clarity or happiness. I just need to be wherever I am right now and try to glean what I can from it. I was reminded that if everything were easy, I would probably be bored. I somehow thought that when I became a yoga teacher things would just fall into place and I would be peaceful and wise (lol). Now I am going to take two steps back from all the self-monitoring and critique. I am going to take the good advice and just enjoy the things that are working. Sometimes things have a way of falling into place when we don't try so hard to push them.

On another note, please check out Lisa Emrich's Carnival this week. I have a little something up there but mostly I recommend the Carnival because it offers a great chance to get new perspectives.

Now upon Heather's recommendation here is one thing I am grateful for today. I am grateful for my loving, caring husband.

Nadja,

Happy New Year!! and thanks for the shoutout.

I'm so glad that you've had some excellent words of support. You deserve it. Letting things fall into place is something I need to do as well. :)

I am so happy that you have a loving and caring husband. Our husbands play such a huge part in our lives with helping us get through all of our struggles with MS.

Hi Nadja! I'm slowly coming back into the blog-os-sphere and am catching up. I see that you've been talking a lot about resolutions and goals, and this Friday's chat on my blog will be about Resolutions. If you are available, I think you would add a lot of cool thoughts to the discussion. If you are available, please join us. I'd love to talk to you again!
