It's Been a Minute
Howdy! Been quite some time since I wrote anything for my website. It has been 4 years since I moved into Canopy, we experienced a global pandemic and my son is now 17 and off to college next year. I, of course, have not aged a day.
Time is a fickle thing. It moves so quickly, and there never seems to be enough of it. I am putting in at least four days a week at the studio. But I still feel like I am trying to play catch up. Why is that feeling so persistent? For me, I think it is because I feel like I have so much more to do! There is so much that I want to bring out into the world, and I feel like there is just not enough time to Do. All. The. Things.
Another birthday came and went for me this past September. It was a milestone turning 60 and that adds to my urgency. I am staring down the last two decades of life, so there is an urgency to get things done sooner, better, faster, MORE
The upside of this is that I am driven and motivated. The down side is that I lose a bit of the joyousness of life. Being a bit more relaxed to enjoy the process has always been a goal. Not saying I have achieved it by ANY stretch. But it does serves as a compass to which I strive. And that has helped to balance my life.
You know, the amount of energy one has can be limited. Your body can only do so much, and you have to honor that. This has become more real for me with each passing year. When I ignore physical limits, I get myself into trouble. So yoga helps me with staying present and focused on the physical realm. And it gives me a space for my spiritual self to take a breath. Balancing the physical and the spiritual is the best space for me to be!
