Practiced Kindness

April 11, 2014



Day Twelve I find myself  in the midst of piles, boxes, disorder, and panic.  No matter how many times I do the 24 Things Challenge, I feel completely frazzled by mid-toss.  


I cannot distinguish my closet from my "to go" pile, I see things that I haven't gotten to yet everywhere I look, and I feel as though I have accomplished nothing.  No one dare enter my office, even my dogs, who normally lay at my feet when I write, are hiding from me.  ( I think I will shave them for Day 14!)


It is important to take a minute and breathe mid-toss. Go back and look at your Sankalpa.  Remind yourself what you are making room for in your life. What did you want when you began 24 Things?  Has it altered? 


Meditate on what you have let go of thus far.  Does it match up with your goal? Perhaps, its a good day to tweak your wish or even throw it away (could be your day 12 item) and choose again. Refining your aspiration is powerful so be specific.


The most important thing is to practice Ahimsa; Do no harm in word, thought or deed to any living thing.  This includes yourself.  So many of us have a critical voice in our heads.  There was a time in my life when I would never be so cruel to anyone as I was to myself.

 Yoga helped me silence that voice and replace it with one of Ahimsa. 


What have you discovered?


I am practicing a little ahimsa and didn't write for a couple of days.. I needed to catch up on a few things!
