I roll out my mat, set the stones beside it, put on some music and begin, again.
Each time I complete 5 sun salutations, I move one of the stones with my toe. How else could I keep count?
It is New Year’s Day, and I am aiming for 54 sun salutations. 108 calls to my heart, but I know to ease back into this practice.
As I relax into savasana once all the stones are moved, I feel the bliss that I missed. I feel it in my body, in my soul, and I am reminded of the power of new beginnings.
New beginnings do not need to mean new practices. Tweet This
They can be a return to what we wish we had never left. They can be an old experience with new eyes. They can be what we did yesterday but now as the person that we are today.
As I’ve lived the first week of 2014, here are some of my new beginnings:
A home yoga practice – I am trying
A return to morning pages
Reading reading reading
Breathing life back into my writing
Stepping into relationships & conversations with fresh perspective and an open mind
Living each day so I feel fulfilled each night
What new beginnings are surfacing for you?
