Well, it seems that my spirit-soul is calling me. I haven't paid much attention to it lately and I think it's about time. I know it because I have everything I need, pretty much everything I want but there is still an empty space which is not filled up...
So... I started meditating again, I've been in and out meditation several times, I think it is a hard discipline, not meditating but doing it every day.
I also started something completely new for me, kind of a dream I had as a child... I started doing Karate, yes...KARATE!!! I did my first class yesterday. I was a little bit intimidated since the only exercise I do is walking, but I did it and I loved it! (a little sore today but survived)
I'm committed again, lets see for how long...I hope it's for a long time.
It feels good!!!
It feels good!!!
Good luck with your meditation. I flirt with a sort of meditation-- writing morning pages-- every once in awhile, but it's hard for me to commit to much of anything outside of work... However, when I do them I can get through a day with a feeling a satisfaction. I just write a max of 3 pages without censoring myself and then I tuck the notebook away until the next time.ReplyDelete
Thanks Lakeshia! I did morning pages for almost two years along with meditation. It is a great exercise, you get rid of "things" and also make discoveries some times...Delete
Thank you very much Tammy! I'm having lots of fun in Karate :)ReplyDelete
Yay to following childhood dreams at any age. :)ReplyDelete
Kathleen thanks for the cheers up!!!Delete
Your drawing and handwriting is lovely and congratulations on starting something you wanted to do from childhood. I think it benefits us all to pursue something that inspired us as children. It helps us to reconnect with ourselves.ReplyDelete
Thank you very much (again). I agree, I'm really enjoying it!Delete
Good for you - Karate is some sport! Nice that you're trying that. Your artwork is lovely and I think your handwriting, the colors and designs are top-notch! Keep up with the meditating, I do it too and some days are good and some not so good. I follow OPen Heart Project [http://susanpiver.com/open-heart-project/] and do meditation with her 1-2 days a week and just on my own the others. Its all good.ReplyDelete
Glad to see your post! Fran T
Thank you Fran, I love your work too!!! I'm loving the karate. Meditation is a hard discipline it terms of "learning to stay", but makes me fell good, grounded and balanced in the long term. Will check the link, thanks.Delete
