So, yesterday wasn't the best class for me to take as it had WAY too many sitting postures, and when my knees are screaming, it's really hard to relax or breathe. Not to mention, the class was a bit too advanced for the rest of my body, as I've been away from Yoga for months...
However, after I wrote that last blog I posted, and I was looking up from the hole in which I wrote it... I knew I had to get out of my little box and move my body.
An answer hit me at one point, whether or not it was while I was doing this or doing that, I can't remember, most likely it was during some brief period of holding something in some position that wasn't too painful.
This past week I had been focusing on the negatives... ONCE AGAIN!
At some point maybe I'll record this song in my closet, but basically... "Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate the Positive."
I had been focusing on what I didn't have, what I had lost, what wasn't happening, who has a chance to get elected to this country and the moron VP he chose impulsively/dangerously... I was focusing on negatives. How many hits I wasn't getting on my newest Closet Videos. Dwelling on friendships that have disappointed me...
Here's the granola crunchy thought that hit me in Yoga... "This past week, I seemingly forgot that happiness is a journey..." It took some mediation and breathing to realize once again had been Ebeneezer Scrooge grinching away all week in my Oscar the Grouch garbage can.
So, this week... Less that. More things that fit and belong with me on the road to joy. I don't know exactly what those things are, but I got to "Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate the Positive." Perhaps I'll volunteer at Obamahood or Obamaville... Perhaps I "do" more social things... Perhaps I'll sing just to sing... Heck maybe I'll find that song.
And speaking of songs, here's 19c... One of my last Closet Singers (the last of the "Rejects" for a while). Thanks to Jen Levin, Jim Nieb and Michael Fox for playing along in 19a, 19b, and this one.
