Run Jenni, Run











{April 26, 2013}   04.26.2013 – Grateful

Yoga and therapy are going to make me a lot more medatative.  If it gets annoying, someone needs to tell me.  I don’t wanna be one of “those people”, but if it makes me happy…then it might not be such a bad thing.

When I went to yoga on Wednesday, the teacher had us write a word on the top of our mat.  This word represented our intention and what we were hoping to achieve with that evening’s practice.  Having a word to direct my practice toward not only helped me that evening, but it followed me toschool the next day.  My word for Wednesday was peace.  And since peace was so well achieved on Wednesday and Thursday, I have decided to start a small project with myself. 

Starting in May, I am going to find a word to meditate on every day.  If I feel that it will help, I can write to word on the inside of my wrist so that I might keep a close eye on my intention for the day.  I felt like a practice run today, so I am living with the word grateful.  I spent a couple of minutes in the sun thinking of all the things that I am grateful for, and it really helped to center myself for the day.  Most of this comes from being thrown off balance last night when I ran into a friend from my past.  He did not really connect me with specifically bad memories, but it was a glimpse into the type of person that I used to be…and that person existed barely a year ago.   This morning I spent a few moments being grateful for the life I have: my friend, the fact that I have found a guy who loves me, the ability to run and practice other forms of exercise, and all the other things that have made my life so good.  When I think about it, I am so completely blessed with experiences in life.  I have stuff that I was able to use as stepping stones to grow into the person that I am today. 

 I hope you will spend some time today to find a word for yourself.  Maybe you will find the things you are grateful for, or maybe you need to focus on another word.  Whatever you chose, I hope your day is going as well as mine.

Later Days,

-Jenni.
