"if you want the moon . . .
do not hide at night.
if you want the rose . . .
do not run from the thorns
if you want love . . .
do not hide from yourself."
How are you weathering the holiday season? ☃️❄️⛄️
Sorry. 😉 I couldn't help myself. It seems every aspect of this year's holiday plans, feasts, and festivities were impacted by Mother Nature.
I hope everyone in your orbit remains healthy and cozy.
I am so grateful that we never lost power, that we didn't have to travel, and that we had all the ingredients for frivolity and delight right in our own home.
Thank goodness my husband likes to plow and shovel. The little dog track he created for Javi in our backyard? It's fantastic.
Thank you to local friends who made room for us at their tables. You all know how to feast! Our time together was deeply nourishing.
And, I am so. darned. grateful for my practice. Yes, my time in asana, physical postures, served me well. This holiday season I definitely leaned into aparigraha, or non-attachment. Releasing expectations, and surrendering into presence, helped me flow and kept me feeling whole.
