And in this moment…

Bad days need to end by going to bed early after doing something relaxing, like yoga, so that your mornings can begin with a refreshed look on the world.  Do I feel 100%? No.  But do I feel a million times better? Yes, yes I do.  
My morning began bright and early when my alarm went off at 4:30.  According to the “sleep cycle” app on my phone, I slept pretty well (tell you about this app later).  I did a quick email, text message check and horoscope check.  Then I went into 5 minutes of meditation.  This is a new thing for me.  Yoga is similar in a way but really, it’s meant to prepare you for meditation.  I bought a book called ‘5 Good Minutes’ by Jeffrey Brantley, MD & Wendy Millstine (“100 morning practices to help you stay calm & focused all day long.”)  It’s really just a way to give 5 minutes for yourself everyday.  To focus on your breathing.  To start your day on the right foot.  Why not?
This was then followed by a trip to the gym with an amazing run!! It’s been far too long since I was running regularly, so I’m trying to get back into it and get my time and distance back before the weather gets too beautiful so I can take my runs outside with confidence.  (I stopped running because I needed new shoes, which I still do so I need to get on that before my knees require me to stop again).  Either way, a great start to my morning.
As I sat here eating my breakfast and drinking my coffee (with vanilla almond milk…yum!), I realized in my head that I had a loop of these lyrics in my head: “and in this moment, I am happy.  Happy.”  What a great feeling.  So, I leave you with the lyrics for the whole song, ‘I Wish You Were Here’ by Incubus (OLD SCHOOL!).  Sums up a lot of things pretty well.  

I dig my toes into the sand
The ocean looks like a thousand diamonds strewn 
across a blue blanket
I lean against the wind, pretend that I am weightless
And in this moment I am happy
Happy
I wish you were here
I wish you were here
I wish you were here
I wish you were… here
I lay my head onto the sand
The sky resembles a back-lit canopy with holes punched in it
I’m counting UFO’s, I signal them with my lighter
And in this moment I am happy
Happy
I wish you were here
I wish you were here
I wish you were… here
Wish you were here
The world’s a rollercoaster
And I am not strapped in
Maybe I should hold with care
But my hands are busy in the air
Sayin
I wish you were here
I wish you were…
I wish you were here
I wish you were here
I wish you were… here
Wish you were here
