My Heart Space is Filled to the Brim!
WE WELCOMED OUR LITTLE BABY INTO OUR LIFE SPACE!
I'm BAAACCCK!!! Did you miss me? :) Excitedly I share that my big surprise became a beautiful baby boy who was just born in April!!!!! Now that I have had a chance to settle into life as a mommy, I am ready to resume my blog and share what I have been up to lately. :) Of course I’ll have lots to share about my happy baby, but in the meantime…
I experienced my first hot yoga (Vinyasa Flow) class today and—boy—they are not kidding when they say “hot!” While I found many of the yoga instructor’s motivating phrases to be truly inspiring, a few of them stood out to me in particular. The first phrase that struck me was an instruction to “create your space.” Instantly I thought about my “life space” and my blog. I have been thinking about resuming my blog for months but something [read: myself] was holding me back. But why had I stopped writing about—frankly, creating—my life space? I think it boils down to the issue of carving out time and acceptance of anything less than perfection. Fascinating to find that…
The next was a poignant reminder of the passing of time: “If not now, then when?” Right then and there I asked myself [despite the fact that I was taking my mind off of my practice], if I don’t resume my blog (and other writing) now, then when will I? I just had a baby so I can’t expect anything to slow down! My bundle of joy has filled my heart space and my life space!! “If not now, then when?” The answer is simple: “Now.”
Lastly, she closed the practice by encouraging us to be our “perfectly imperfect” selves. And that is exactly what I aim to do here. I started this blog with a resolution and now I resolve to not only keep writing and sharing, but to continue to be my perfectly imperfect self.
