Day 40: Juuuuust Breatheeeeee

Today I was introduced to the term “resonant breathing” because I joined a yoga challenge. The yoga challenge sent an email reminding us that it is the first day of the challenge and included an advertisement for a breathing app and a blurb about resonant breathing. It was cool to learn about resonant breathing, andContinue reading “Day 40: Juuuuust Breatheeeeee”

Day 39: From Anxious to Aligned

Today has been a strange day, but it isn’t one I can complain about. I woke up and had a slow morning, followed by a lot of thinking about the spiritual domain and trying to connect to it with meditation or alignment. To be honest, I find it exhausting listening to this stuff. I foundContinue reading “Day 39: From Anxious to Aligned”

Day 38: Supersonic Man

It is day 38! And, it 10:00 PM and I almost forgot to post today. What a tragedy that would have been. Luckily, I remembered with enough gas in the tank to post today. My day was emotional and brilliant, ending with a very exhausted me. My man-friend and I awoke at approximately 5am andContinue reading “Day 38: Supersonic Man”

Day 37: Walking into Transcendence

I am doing well today. I wasn’t always doing well, but I just got home from a great walk, a way that allowed me and my boyfriend to transcend. What is transcendence? Transcendence is, according to dictionary.com, existence or experience beyond the normal or physical level. So, how did my walk allow me to transcend.Continue reading “Day 37: Walking into Transcendence”

Day 36: Why am I enjoying this process so much?

I have to admit…I love writing my500words everyday…like LOVE. I look forward to it. Why is that? I don’t really have readers. I don’t really have a big, grand goal related to this. This functions as a personal journal, albeit impersonal in details, that I post for the world to see. What is it aboutContinue reading “Day 36: Why am I enjoying this process so much?”

Day 35: Why do I look outside?

Why do I look outside when everything I need is within? Why do I want someone else to validate my idea before I commit? Why? Is this human? Is this normal? Is this madness? Potentially yes to all of these questions. An important lesson that I keep having to learn over and over again isContinue reading “Day 35: Why do I look outside?”

Day 34: Fresh & Alive

Today is day 34. What a day it has been.  I have been listening to Eckhart Tolle and Oprah discuss presence and the importance of staying in the moment. And, I have been. It hasn’t taken my “bad” day away, but it has helped in ways I suppose. I am dog sitting and finding myselfContinue reading “Day 34: Fresh & Alive”

Day 33: Peace & Stillness> Desperation

Each day that I write, I find myself negating something that I wrote the previous day. That isn’t that cool! But, I find myself here today. So, a few posts ago, I said I was going to manifest pink elephants or a yellow Volkswagen. I was trying to manipulate the universe into telling me aContinue reading “Day 33: Peace & Stillness> Desperation”

Day 32: A new day and a new challenge

It is day 32, which means that I have accomplished my initial goal of writing 500 words a day for 31 days. I did it! It also means that I cultivated a habit during those 30 days and am now continuing to write. I have extended the goal from 31 days to 50 days. So,Continue reading “Day 32: A new day and a new challenge”

Day 31: How to know what you want

This morning, I woke up on the wrong side of the bed. I ate a lot of crackers and snacks very late at night, felt dehydrated before sleeping, and woke up earlier than I would have preferred. I have felt kind of crabby ever since. Now, I have an offer to do something that IContinue reading “Day 31: How to know what you want”
