I've felt my attention to health getting pulled away as the "stuff" of life has crowded in. I'm trying to re-engage and refocus as best as possible. Not that I'm letting my habits totally slide, mind you, but the attentiveness and mindfulness hasn't been there as much. My meditation group likens it to training a puppy: you try to get it to sit and stay, but it wants to wander off and play! Just gotta keep at it, and it will happen.
The results from my bloodwork at the doctor have been coming in, and thankfully everything looks good. I like to think that it's evidence that my work is paying off! Now I just have to watch my blood pressure- both parents have had issues with hypertension so I want to make sure I don't go down that path too. Hopefully my Zumba obsession should help with that!
I'm really enjoying my meditation group. We meet every other Tuesday night and I always look forward to it. The participants have all really bonded and it's such a nourishing experience to have that kind of connection and safety with a group of people who are all trying to grow and develop themselves and their awareness. Very rewarding and inspiring stuff.
Lastly, I saw this picture and thought of my girl, Daphne. Enjoy!
