Pushing into power

Last week I climbed Croagh Patrick...

IMG_1689.JPG

It was the hottest day 🌞🔥 in over forty years, I was wearing cheap runners & not enough sun screen... and we didn’t bring much water😫 BUT we pushed through.  My husband, always the optimist, was positive every moment, laughing and making jokes to keep our 12-year-old focused. They both moved at a swift pace, without fear, while I was calculating risk, noticing dangers... anticipating the next fall or near-miss while staring at every rough rock making up the ground.  When I would look up, the height & breeze made my legs shake as we approached the summit⛰.  I was scared.  I felt powerless.  Powerlesness is the absolute WORST feeling for me. I hated it! 

At the same time, I knew I wasn’t going to quit.  I knew it was going to end AND that I would be happy afterwards, proud.  I wanted the memories with my family, I wanted the experience, even if it mostly sucked (which it kinda did).  I was disappointed at the top and even more terrified and sore coming down.  But then there was a cool stream to dunk my feet & legs in, we got to the bottom & found water again💧😊 ... we got cooled off in the car & ate lunch.  Then we laughed😂💪🏼 And felt good about what we had done.  We felt power-full & accomplished.  It was good.  

Sometimes... most times, we need to nudge ourselves into doing things.  Push ourselves into our power, even when it first makes us feel powerless.  That is where the growth happens.  It’s where we make memories & build our internal strength.  So, this week, get out of your comfort zone!!

Start yoga if you haven’t yet😊🧘🏼‍♀️ Beginners is Tuesday @8pm or push yourself harder and try POWER 💪🏼 Yoga Monday @8pm.... or try a 2-hour workshop this Friday in Beginner Aerial Circus🎪😅 So much fun... if you just push into it.  Enjoy the week. 

Namaste

Growing gratitude

School is out.  My daughter has just finished college. The sun has been around for nearly two weeks.  Life is good.  It is easy to feel grateful right now🙏🏻🌞

We need to remember to relish these moments and all the good memories, meals & times we enjoy, and take a moment to feel gratitude. In recognizing these moments, we grow our gratitude. In less enjoyable times, we can look back, but also find simpler things to be grateful for— the roof over our head, our bed, hot shower, etc...

Take a few minutes sometime this week to list 25 things you are grateful for. Tuck it away or stick it on the fridge... have it for a rainy day⚡️☔️🌤 

Grow that gratitude!  

It’s May!

Weekly Meditation Class

Beginning Monday, September 11th, I will be starting 4-weeks of meditation practice & instruction from 8-9pm.  This is a chance to truly relax and experiment with various methods of mindfulness & meditation.  I will introduce breathing exercises, a body scan, mantras, creative visualisation & mindful moments.  We will spend time sitting, lying down & relaxing in the hammocks... with candles & calming music. A perfect way to start the week & to develop a valuable skill. Text 086-854-0023 to reserve your spot🙏🏻🌿😊
