Another 40 days

I'm on Day 4 of another 40 Days of Yoga.

This is my third 40 Days, and the first two were not so much of a struggle for me. I like going to yoga. I like having the set schedule.  Since this time last year I've had a very regular yoga practice, and it's not been too much of a stretch to increase it for six weeks.

We are supposed to set our intentions for the 40 Days. I had a general "keep doing what I'm doing" intention set, but I really mean that.  In the last year, I have seriously committted on working on myself and I have enjoyed the progress.  I feel more connected to the things and people around me. I feel much more in touch with my body. I love the feeling of power after a good yoga practice. And I feel like these things are coming off the mat too.

The last 40 days, I really worked on my meditation practice, and I enjoyed the ritual and the time to myself.  Since Graham is also committed to this practice, he fully understands when I take a moment for myself for meditation.  I've set up my personal meditation space in the fireplace.  We have been keeping a pile of floor pillows there for years, and the coffee table is right in front of it. It's a perfect place to take a moment to observe my thoughts, feelings, emotions, and physical space.  It's not like in Houston, Texas we use the fireplace for anything else. I fell off the meditation wagon in December, so I'm glad that the 40 days gives me an opportunity to revisit my committment.
