Day 1/8: the pulse

The quick and dirty: I spent the last 8 days pushing the envelope. Really stretching what I’m comfortable with and what I can pull off.

Now, time to pull it back, begin the pulse inward, create that vacuum and be prepared to fill it with conscious choices and positive movement on the next expansion.

The coming 8 days will be an exercise in focus, an energetic cleanse of sorts, to get myself back on track and find my middle ground. I’m so grateful that I’ve taken the time to build a practice that absorbs the ups and downs of life and gives me a place of stability to work from when the pendulum swings wide.

Onward. Inward.

more downward dog, less downward spiral

Smile, be happy!

"Happiness is the consequence of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestations of your own blessings. And once you have achieved a state of happiness, you must never become lax about maintaining it. You must make a mighty effort to keep swimming upward into that happiness forever, to stay afloat on top of it." — Elizabeth Gilbert
