quiet in my life ::  yoga, meditation, and journaling early in the morning. this is my ‘me time’. love to wake up early and to know that for an hour or so i’ll not be disturbed. some days i get lazy and stay in the bed but most of the time i get up and start my day being positive.

my friend Delicia is creating personal meditations, you can check out here. she has lovely meditations in there and i asked her to create a personal meditation for me. she knows me well and i trusted that she’d pinpoint all my needs in the meditation.

i received my meditation last week, love it! the meditation is grounding, but at the same time makes me feel light and free. i’m practicing it every day since them and i feel that unpleasant thoughts are getting weaker and i’ve more room for creativity in my mind. isn’t it great!

my ‘me time’ makes me a better person to others, but the most important makes me a better person to myself.

hugs,

E.

“this particular boy looked impossibly young and fine-boned beneath the bill of his cap, his eyelids burned by the weight of a thousand silky black lashes.”

this morning i’m noticing the details of a story. i’m impressed by the writing of Ann Patchett, how she describes the characters of her story. feels like they are close by and we can touch them. her books are great! i wanted to read this one for a long time, i’m reading it slowly, few pages each morning, savoring each line.

Have a great week my friends!

noticing # 1

i need to give a boost to my creativity.

i have lots of ideas popping up, but i’m always procrastinating, saying it’s ok if i leave it for tomorrow and then at the end of the week and month i’ve done nothing!

i need discipline, routine, but at the same time, i want freedom.   i know, for sure, that my projects should involve photography and words so i decided to register what i notice around me, little things along the way.

i’ll give it a try, i’ll post every day a photography and few words that come to my mind. hope you enjoy!

here is my first ‘noticing’

the exact moment when we discover that we can bloom,

each one in a particular way,

but nevertheless showing off our true essence.

 

 

Listening

img_2809

Taking easy, listening to the wishes of my body. I’ve learned I can’t hurry. I need to stop and check with my body. Listen to all parts of it and respect my limits.

My mantra is STOP, BREATHE AND LISTEN. I put these words together a few years ago. My intention was to listen to the things around me, mostly the sounds of nature. Now I know the most important sounds I need to listen are inside me; in my mind and in my body.

My morning has started slowly. I was still in bed at 9 am! I did heart space meditation that my friend Delicia posted on her blog today. It’s a simple but powerful meditation. You can find it here.

I hadn’t practiced yoga for more than 6 months, today my body asked for it. I felt ready to start this practice that was part of my morning routine for many years.  I was surprised at how well my body responded to the poses, of course, they weren’t perfect, but good enough to know that I’m ready to practice yoga again.

Now, after a healthy breakfast, I’m writing this blog post for you. How is your Friday going on?

Love,

E.
