Pockets of Peace

Oh, it feels so good to be back here!  It has been a whirlwind of amazing opportunities and activities.  I am in the final stages of becoming an Urban Zen Integrative Therapist,  (so excited about this and will post more about this soon), I’m also in the final stages of making a Yoga DVD for Multiple Sclerosis, as well as enjoying all the wonderful yoga classes I’m teaching.  I feel so blessed.  With all this activity underway and the continued life as a mother,  I needed to be  resourceful in finding ways to care for myself without which none of the aforementioned work could happen.  I would arrive early for work and have a few minutes to read or walk through a nearby park, as the weather got nice, I would go to our Conservatory’s beautiful outdoor areas and eat my freshly made salad in a jar, nurturing my body and soul before heading off to nurture others with my Urban Zen tools.  I realized I had “pockets of peace”,  these were breaks in between work and clinicals in which I spent time alone and often outdoors.  These “pockets of peace” really seemed to refresh me and help me stay grounded and present for the rest of my day.  I encourage you, if you feel you are too busy to find time for yourself, to look for “pockets of peace”,  time to be outdoors,  take in a good book, meditate,  breathe and just be.

“Only when one is connected to one’s own core is one connected to others, I am beginning to discover.  And for me, the core, the inner spring, can best be refound through solitude.”   Anne Morrow Lindbergh
