Today is a good day. It's Sunday (yay), sunny (yay), warm (yay) and quiet (double, triple yay) at the compound today. Danielle and Jeff are off doing something. Robbie is out dirt biking with his buddy and Skip just left for Canada for the week. That just leaves Courtney and I here. Sundays and Fridays are my days off so I really strive to make NO plans for those days and just enjoy them. Today feels especially golden.
I was just outside working. Birds are chirping and the day is just warm enough to feel amazing but not too hot. Nobody is bothering me (well except Courtney asking me random questions). Everything feels great. Inside I have my quiet meditation room (aka Bitch Cave) that I plan to slip into in a bit and enjoy as well. Yes, I'm in love with this day.
Of course, a day like this gives me pause to reconsider whether I really want to move from here. I can list a LOT of reasons why I don't want to live here on the compound anymore. Another day they would be big and valid. Today, they seem so insignificant.
A day like this brings me back to what I consistently teach in all of my yoga classes: Bring your attention to this breath, this moment, right now.
So, for now, I'll just feel the greatness of now. Tomorrow or another day will bring with it whatever it brings. I'm sure this moment will pass into another moment that might not be as zen.
