Thankful for Pausing, MacGyver Skills, & a Headstand

Day 2,304

Growth:

Pause, listen, observe, think, ask more questions, and then respond. Always the best way to react to a new or unexpected situation. I’m not strong in this process yet, I’ve got a long ways to go. Today reminded me of just how far I have to go in this process as well as how helpful it would be to better live into.

Appreciation:

LOL – some days I feel it’s only fair to blog about some of the more humorous moments of life. Today I’m grateful for my MacGyver skills and some extra velcro tabs stashed away in my office. The zipper for the fly of my pants decided to quit on me in the afternoon. Thank goodness I have a stash of interesting supplies in my office and I was able to rig something up with something I found deep inside my cabinet. A pair of scissors, some velcro tabs, and a few minutes later I was back in business for the rest of the day! Nothing like a little extra excitement to keep life interesting!

Presence:

Over lunch today I paused and did something I’ve recently started working into my daily routine. I kicked off my shoes, moved my standing mat, and dropped to the ground. I put my arms into a V shape, put my head down, and proceeded to raise my legs and torso into a headstand. For the next two minutes I held the pose, focused on controlling my breathing, and enjoyed the sensation of being completely inverted. After the two minutes were up I slowly dropped my legs to the ground, took a moment in child’s pose, and then got on with my day feeling completely refreshed.

Thanks!!!
