Morning, Peeps! I've been tired all week. I know the reason why, so I'm monitoring my energy and my mood. I'm grateful that I have the wisdom to recognize my fatigue, then to acknowledge the roots, and honor my needs by resting PRN (med-speak shorthand for "as needed"!). I see myself using my voice too much at school and wearying my vocal chords, managing a lot of exuberance in the classroom, and, as a result, using too much of my Energy (capital "E" psychic energy or emotional energy) to maintain order let it go let it go let go of control.
I've tried to get up early (successful!) to exercise (not successfully - ha!), but at least I've done my asana practice. This week, in the morning-time, reading and writing hold more interest, so I'm allowing that. In the evening, my bed holds more interest than studying, so I am honoring that, too!
In essence, I'm grateful that I am clear about how I feel and confident in meeting my needs that have arisen from those feelings. I'm not over-caffeinating to "push through", and I'm prioritizing rest and prana and asana to start my day off in a great way, tired or not.
Which is what I'm going to go do right now, and so it's a great day and I am grateful! Yay!
...is practicing gratitude every day for 365 days. Began on April 22, 2016, let's see how life changes over the course of this next year!
