Began this day waking up to a cool breeze and tiny bodies I adore snuggling in tight. As I wrapped the covers around my creations, I smiled with my eyes like my mom and dad did when we would bombard their bed...the support and unconditional love my parents showed, emanated and taught me lives in me and pours out, I'm told...and I'm forever grateful for that as I hope my little gents will be as they mature, too.
I dropped them at their schools, fulfilled my yearning for morning yoga practice (my way of honoring and connecting with God) with my favorite yogi, Brent Divine, and then went back to Bobby's school to teach the children about Cinco de Mayo in circle time through reading an educational story about the battle over the French.
One thing I have learned in battles is "to do no harm, but take no sh*t." Instead of letting old patterns resurface, I "let go" of needing to REACT because peace comes from with in. I know where my heart is and I have inner-peace because of that. My mistakes don't define me nor do anyone else's. We are put on this earth to be human, not perfect. We are here to learn to be content with BEING perfectly imperfect just as we are. While I never want to hurt others and am deeply sorry when and if I do, I don't report to anyone but ME. It's a good way to live and BE. I am happy being me and my worth is great and my true friends and family remind me of that daily.
As we celebrate Cinco de Mayo or any day, let us not celebrate tacos and parties, but the battles fought and won that we made it through throughout our lives. We all have them and we all are faced with different challenges to teach us something and show us truth, peace, and most importantly, LOVE.
LOVE is all you need. Yoga is something I need and love. Do something today that harvests your self love and nurtures your needs because when things are right within, they become right "outside".
Namasteintherain and enjoy the wash.
