Because you are alive, everything is possible.
~ Thich Nhat Hanh
Today is day one of the 40-day challenge, the one I should probably name a self-care challenge because that is what it boils down to. I’m posting to help keep me accountable. Feel free to join in, any time, if you like, and let me know how it’s going.
This morning my self-care looked like thirty minutes of strength training with a resistance band and light weights; yoga practice (which includes movement, breath work, mantra, and meditation); and a couple of walks outside just to enjoy some fresh air, sunshine (when it was available — thick clouds have been moving in and out), and whatever spring has on offer for today.
Be safe, be well, take care of yourself and others when/as you can. ♥♥♥
A few of the 10,000 reasons to be happy: 1,281) Persian speedwell (the little blue flowers pictured above) in bloom. 1,282) Leaves and buds on the cherry trees. I think we’ll see some blossoms soon. 1,283) Cornbread with lemon-raspberry marmalade. 1,284) Ginger and lemon tea. 1,285) Going on a scavenger hunt with the Wookie and Peanut, via Marco Polo (a video app). Today we were looking for something purple, something yellow, something wood, and something metal.
