After a crazy weekend it was good getting back to “normal”.
Not that I have any concept of what normal is – I guess I mean a routine – Not a routine (life is too crazy) … Okay the start of a new week! Maybe not the start that would’ve been Monday (sigh).
Never mind. Today started with an old thing Yoga – I used to be quite diligent about practicing and I got away from it – Not sure why? My shoulder has been bothering me and yoga seemed to have helped me with a similar issue in the past so I’ve returned. I use the yoga studio app on my iPhone. Today I decided to do the thirty minute beginner flexibility routine, it tuned out to be thirty minutes of inflexibility! Why do I do this stop doing something that I enjoy and benefits me then lose most of what I gained and start again!
It felt good to be doing something positive, although I’m sure my disgust at how much flexibility I’d lost didn’t help the spiritual part of the yoga practice… Hopefully I can maintain the little momentum I gained today and make it part of my regime – I can certainly benefit from it!
The new thing was nothing earth shattering it was a new sandwich combination from the Bee Hive in Bristol, a delicious butternut squash sandwich! If you’re ever in the area I recommend the food and the cafe. What made the lunch extra special was sharing time with a dear friend. One of the “Things” I’m becoming aware of on this mini quest of mine is what’s important, like appreciating Yoga and old friendships, which make new discoveries like a good sandwich all the more enjoyable!
Now 57 new things left to discover, but remember don’t give up something you enjoy doing and if you’ve drifted from it get back to it! Then go to lunch with an old friend somewhere new or try something new!
