a beautiful quiet saturday afternoon. i taught class to a bunch of fun, sweaty yogis followed by a yummy brunch and a long nap nose to nose with the pup. i feels like my entire being is letting out one big sigh.
after i wrote my last post, i got a text from one of my best friends asking, “are you okay?!”
yes, more than okay. blissfully fulfilled and happy. my days are full to the brim, but there’s nothing i want to cut out. i just don’t have a whole lot of free time right now, but when i do, i more than value it.
i want to live life like that.
one that is so rich in gratitude that everything seems to be in technicolor. the beautiful days with the windows rolled down and the music loud. the quieter days with naps and tea. even the hard days with tears and frustrations.
the other night as we were sitting on the roof of the building at sunset, palms facing up, gazing out at the sunset all i could think over and over again was thank you.
“i am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and as long as i live it is my privilege to do for it whatever i can. i want to be thoroughly used up when i die. for the harder i work the more i live. i rejoice in life for its own sake.”
