you know what’s strange? my mind is completely blank
every day about possible september goals.
all of august days, i’ve been brainstorming ideas. see, i really want to have credible september goals because this month is more of a new year, a time of fresh starts, than january 1st will ever be. (i won’t repeat what i wrote last year, welcome to the REAL new year that you can read right there, if you want to see the argument for why labour day makes a better new year’s).
so, for september, i’ve decided to keep things pretty basic, yet go a little deeper, too (strike a side angle pose, everyone!).
i intend to make the most of my yoga groupon and get to fearless heart on as many days as time permits. i’ve mentioned that i have this blockage about doing yoga at home on my own, but for september, i am going to spend time on the mat at home on days i cannot get to the yoga studio. even five minutes of legs up the wall will count!
yoga instructor lindsay shared a quote with us the other day from david swenson [guru in the ashtanga yoga world] about what makes a yogi (someone who practises yoga). to paraphrase, in david’s opinion a yogi is someone who leaves a place or a person better than when they found them. that is awesome. add that philosophy to how we’ll approach september.
in addition, my strategy is to take each day as it comes – hence, the go with the flow in today’s title. that kinda
terrifies excites me!
otherwise, i am also happy about beginning my schedule of full time hours at the storeS !!
for the outings of the month, mom and i are all set as we will have our annual day at the knitter’s fair [local knitters: you must go if you have never been! click here for info or ask me!] in less than two weeks! dad and i have about 41 eatery options we could pursue, and i’ve got play dates already lined up with adorable e and cutie c in toronto. fun stuff!
and…i will see if i can find my misplaced coffee-loving taste buds!! they must be out there somewhere!!
when is the better new year’s: january first or labour day in september? state your case!
one september goal?? i am just beginning the novel the girl with the dragon tattoo so that will be my read-of-the-month. watch out: it could inspire me to acquire tattoo #3!!
