I enjoyed the most glorious start to a weekend in recent memory. Wow! For Central California, if it’s only in the upper 70s by noon in August, it will be a glorious day. Today, I opted to begin my weekend breathing in the smell of eucalyptus with the sun peeking through the trees and sending its hopeful rays to bathe my face. The breeze was cool.
Not only was the breeze refreshing and the fragrance magical, but I was practicing yoga in the wonderful outdoors again. As I did my Warrior poses and my yoga flow, Breeze sent me a message. Breeze conveyed its message by exhaling and pushing away any doubt. As Breeze blew away the uncertainty, it brought a renewed sense of hope.
“Listen to the mustn'ts, child. Listen to the don'ts. Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me... Anything can happen, child. Anything can be.” ― Shel Silverstein
This week was a tough week – 800 miles of driving, screaming hip flexors and the thought of more travel in the next week was blown away by Breeze. I heard Breeze’s message! In came the scent of hope, energy, strength and optimism. The stage was set with the focus being the future. The future is not dictated by my past hip fears or anxieties. Today is a new day with a new outlook! Thank you, Breeze.
