It has been over a year since I last wrote Thursday Thoughts here in the blog. Somehow along the busyness and haste of things, I had totally forgotten about writing a paragraph or two weekly of the things that represent my major thoughts.
While I love baking and writing about the delicious pastries and baked goods week after week, It is vital for me to write- just for the sake of writing. My soul needs to write to thrive.
The past month has been an interesting part of my life, and in general, let me just say that my security and confidence have been shaken to an extent that I, once again, saw myself digging for my deep reserves of strength and strong will.
Now after everything has now settled beautifully, I find myself wanting to bombard my Instagram a hundred words and so, wanting to express so many things inside my head and heart. I realized that this-the art of writing is a resource I have not tapped for the last few years.
So I said, hey I have a blog, I might as well write there.
Dance Through Life
By that I mean just to walk through each day, lightly. I find that over-analyzing, too much thinking about issues is not always a good thing. It just makes me dig deeper and so tied to what is over and done, and I end up predicting what can go wrong in the future.
In short, I become tied, obsessed and miserable. I love how beautifully it was stated in this blog that we only need to tiptoe through life and not stomp or lay flat around life issues. Another way to visualize it.
In the end, I realized I wasn’t being fair to my beautiful mind and heart, which only need to enjoy the present time and savor each moment.
Yoga is Empowering
And the more I practice, the more I want to do more. It is amazing how a series of challenging poses along with controlled breathing can give me a boost of confidence and strength. Yoga picks me up whenever I feel unmotivated and stuck.
For more than a month now, and after months of hiatus, yoga begins my day on foot. In the dark lit basement, quiet and serene, five am. Nothing makes me feel so serene and calm.
My friend has been challenging me to do a headstand. I’d say keep posted 🙂
They say that if you shout out to the universe a “thank you” for all things big and small, the more it will send things to be thankful for your way.
Gratitude becomes a fuel for joy, as I remind myself every day of the things that are here, the things I can do and the people who are with me.
So the next time you (and I) feel less than amazing, it is always worth a try to pick yourself up by making a mental (or written note) of the things that are going well and the things that we are thankful for.
