Last year in September I was doing a bike trip in Portugal. I enjoyed the sites, food and people of this history laden country. I will post more pictures after I get through this next move.
Once again I find myself packing up to move. This time only a few miles away to a smaller apartment. What to keep and what to get rid of?? This is the question. I've had 4 years to work on sorting through memorabilia and it didn't happen. Except that I did go through hundred of photos a couple of years back. Still haven't gotten to my slides. Doing the work of sorting through our lives takes muscle. Muscle in the brain really. If the brain doesn't start it, it just won't happen. I'm learning that from being under the gun to do it. If there is a gun to our heads we will start the process. I hate to use that term because I'm so against guns, but it does do the trick. So, how do we overcome the resistance to get things done if we are not pressured to do it? I just don't know the answer to that one. I know it has something to do with muscle. As I'm now forced to pack up and declutter, it's starting to get easier. I start to see distinctions and ways through that I didn't see before. I will hopefully learn from this and incorporate changes into my journey ahead so I can continue to sort, process, discard, and create as I move forward from here.
Welcome to my new website and blog. This is where I will share all that I'm exploring and learning in the area of yoga, health, love, and life. I've blogged on and off over the years, but this is the first time that it will have a home in my website.
I always loved the idea of Dancing on the Branches of Life. This is often how I feel as I venture out to explore new things. Everything feels shaky and a bit precarious as we start out on new journeys. There are no roots and very little is known or familiar. It's easy to get scared and lose any self confidence you had before. It's the feeling of experiencing and learning something new, like riding a bike for the first time, or learning the lines of a new script, or learning a new subject. It always takes time and practice to get it down and feel confident. So, if you're like me, and always moving to new places, learning new things, and meeting new people, life can be very shaky all the time. Living like this is not easy and I often question why I choose to do life this way, but it seems that I just can't do it any other way. I'm driven to throw myself into new arenas to explore, learn and grow.
So please join me. My hope is that some of what I learn, experience and share will help or inspire you on your own journey.
