I know I haven’t been around for a while. I haven’t forgot about my blogs nor you. It’s not like I have neglected you, I just had to deal with real life for a bit. Some of it was bad but most of it was good.
Does it help if I explain to you what has been going wrong in my life? Nope. Why? Because every single one of us has issues. We all have things we have to face in life – some of it good and some of it bad (depending on your perception of things).
We ALL need to take our time this year. Take our time with making our decisions, setting boundaries, and living life to the fullest. We also need to take our time to savor the present moment. Only by living in the present moment can we be grateful for all the things in our life.
What does “living in the present moment” mean? For me, it means not to think about the past as well as not thinking about the future (projecting. It also means not to project or fantasize about the outcome you want. Let’s say you meet a guy and you like him. Instead of thinking about your wedding day (and you haven’t even gone out on a single date…this is projection at its worst), think about why you like this guy and how you can make him a part of your life NOW! That’s the present moment!

This year, I’m going to make it a point to live in the present moment as much as I can. These blogs aren’t going to write themselves and just keeping ideas in my head and not putting them on paper just makes no sense. I can’t let my past affect me. I can’t let my future (or possible future) affect me either. Most of all, I can’t let my imagination or wishing for this or that affect me from doing what I need to do NOW.
If you are like me, then you need to make this change as soon as possible. Otherwise, everything you have strived to achieve will be for naught. It’s almost 2010. This year should be about responsibility and accountability.
(With this said, I was going to do a blog on what I said I was going to do last year and if I did it or not. It’s time I listen to myself and not look in the past…except when it comes to the topics I need to post on here. )
So have a Happy Holidays and let make this a New Year of change!
Blessed Love and until next time…
Stay strong, stay healthy, and fight dis-ease!
I really have the urge to write about some health thing. I mean, this is a health blog…right?
This is a wellness blog. And while I do talk about things that are physically, mentally and spiritually, rarely do I give you (or myself) time to really soak in and enjoy the wellness.
It has been said that the Lord rested on the seventh day. Whichever day, your “seventh day” lies, we should be resting as well. However, that is not the case in this day and age – at least for most of us.
So instead, let us honor the day of rest as more of a day of absorption.
Take a moment to reflect on your week. How did it make you feel? Who or What factors contributed to your growth and which factors did not? How can I make next week more positive than this week?
Absorb these feelings, thoughts, and answers and then let them go. Go to sleep tonight and start your day, your week, your life anew…why wait? do it now!
What do you really have to lose?
I am teaching Yoga today. Since my class is in the evening, I take this time to do some Yoga – asana, pranayama, meditation – and maybe do some light reading and reviewing. I spend a lot of time keeping my intention in mind – intention for my life, for my students, for my day.
Today, however, was different. I didn’t get up and listen to Joel Osteen on TV. He was on TV talking but I didn’t pay much attention. FOX News Sunday came on. I payed attention to the show and liked it but I wasn’t present and in the moment. My mind was not on thinking or anything mental.
My mind was on doing.
I prepared my breakfast. I finished updating my blogroll for this site and I’m going to update http://www.dorightforyourself.org – something I should have done a long time ago. I cleaned my house a bit. I’m blogging. Continue reading
As I have said in my last post, I am going through certain things right now that is giving me a chance to totally reevaluate my life. During that process, I will be posting less consistently than before. This is not because I’m giving up on my blog. On the contrary, I’m going to fully revamp this blog to be the success that it needs to be.
In the process, I am totally revamping myself as well.
I have to get a lot of things in order. My finances, my relationships, my health (mental and spiritual), and my career. It’s not that things aren’t going well, certain situations in my life that I cannot control have forced me to shift into survival mode. Thankfully, various modalities of Holistic Healing have enabled me to weather this change with a good “umbrella” and a positive mind.
I have two blogs. This one and Healthy Junk. I’m going to make a lot of changes to these blogs. Also have a “Fight dis-ease!” blog on WordPress. I put up a poll on the sidebar to my left. Even though I only received one vote, I got a lot of feedback that has helped me to make certain decisions.
Unfortunately for you, I’m not going to speak on these decisions now. The only reason for this is that I want to make sure that I follow through with these decisions instead of telling you I’m going to do something and then falling back on it.
You will find that as I progress (or regress) with my blog, so is the same with my life. This blog is a reflection of my growth as well as your journey of personal growth.
It is high time that I claim my worth and value it to the fullest – in life, through my blogs.
So it is written, so shall it be done.
Don’t worry. I’ll still post. However it will be slow, as I have said before. Not only will the template change (as I have already planned to do with the seasons) but the content and many other things will change with this blog. I hope you stick around long enough to enjoy the fruits of my labor. Please feel free to provide any feedback.
Until next time…stay strong, stay healthy, and fight dis-ease!
