It’s been a while since my last post. Sadly I don’t have any confessions for today, though there were probably some incriminating photos taken at a recent bachelorette party for my cousin’s fiancé.
Anyway, we got the apartment! There is so much to do before the end of the month and I’m starting to panic a bit but I couldn’t be happier to cross apartment-searching off of my list. What a pain that is. Now if only I could have someone box up all of the useless knick knacks, dishes, and God knows what else I have collected over the years…
I’ve taken a bit of a break from blogging lately because I find that my stress levels have been elevated a bit. Though I’m extremely excited about moving in with Bryan, I think I’m starting to panic about the many life changes I have made in the past few months and I am realizing I haven’t fully allowed myself time to process them all. I’m scared my anxiety is starting to set in again slowly and I’m doing all that I can to stay level-headed and embrace and move with change.
The other day, I set my intention in a yoga class. After an embarrassingly long hiatus, I returned on a rainy Monday, unrolled my mat on the hard, wooden floor, and closed my eyes for a moment of mindful meditation.
“Today I will lose myself in my practice,” I vowed. In some ways, it felt like the most selfish promise I could make to myself, but it was a beautiful gift nonetheless. Letting go of obsessive compulsions and finding moments of zen are always appreciated.
I’m not sure about you, but as the days go by, I find it harder and harder to embrace the here, the now, the moments that slip through fingertips and become embedded in memory.
How do you melt into a moment? Are you mindful of what you are experiencing and feeling when life changes all around you?
