Stay Young

January 2, 2012

New Year’s resolutions? Nahh . . . As soon as I declare one, I know it will peak then fade. So I can make crazy resolutions such as: ” In order to be more productive each day, I will do my yoga routine while I shower.” Brilliant! I save time killing 2 birds with 1 stone. A bit dangerous, but multi-tasking during downward dog, in the private, solitude of my shower sounds super! Another form of Hot Yoga perhaps?

Now, if I commit to do that, them is fighting words. Commitment sounds more powerful to me. I’m choosing, right now, to commit to reminding myself, to stay young. (Notice I didn’t commit to staying young, but to reminding myself…sounds realistic, yes?)  Life gets heavy, there’s no avoiding that. But I can remind myself to lighten up and play, along with the pondering – just like my lovely, little niece. She dances and jumps around even when there’s no music. Then she rests. I’m saying it here, right now in front of you blog readers: When I start feeling the heaviness of life, I’m going to get up and jump around until I feel so silly I smile,  do a spin, swing my skirt, then hug my knees and rest a moment.  Life just might feel a bit lighter after that.

Hello 2012. I’m ready for you.

    Such cute pictures! And I’m so bad at giving myself goals that make me putter out too soon. I’m trying to work on aiming high, but staying within reach and not having to reach the mountain top in one giant leap.
