No one is more surprised then I am

I will now confess to you that I have fallen in love with Yoga.  I KNOW!  I am completely shocked myself, but as the old adage goes, absence does make the heart grow fonder.  Rouben was away for 2 weeks and last week I was unable to head back to the studio as I was sick and then had a scheduling conflict for the second class.  But today, oh today…I returned and I realized how much I missed it.  I knew I was getting into it and was excited to go back, but today I realized how much I really, really, really like it.

I am so happy just knowing that I have class again on Thursday.  That I get to spend 90 minutes not looking at my blackberry, designing, talking or be in control of anything other then me.  I never would have thought I would utter such a statement.  Oh, how I love growing!

  1. sierra this is one of those things that as effective leaders we MUST do.
    STOPPING in order to keep going.
    When you just work, work, work the time for reflection on “am I working on the right thing, how do I know?” is lost.
    So stopping for about 60-90 minutes a day to allow you to reflect and just be with yourself no tech. books others etc…
    Working (especially when you LOVE it and are GREAT at it) is addictive and your body will physically crave it and go through withdraws.
    Thank you for reminding me to STOP and return back to reflection.

    This is one of the areas in life where I have the most difficulty…stopping working. I have to force myself to enjoy time not working, its sad but I’m working on it!
