Day 329

I went back to yoga this morning and it felt really good. We started with a meditation which was just what I needed. We then moved into some gentle poses and stretched our bodies. I am glad I am starting to feel more like myself now. I have energy to do a bit more. I spent the afternoon just chilling out at home. Greg and I needed this time out. Our relationship has grown so much in the past six months. I sometimes feel though we need to put our phones away and connect more. It is so easy to get stuck in a social media, meme, video vortex. Tonight we decided to watch a movie together. No phones allowed. It was called ‘Like Father’ on Netflix and it was actually really good. It was pretty light hearted film but also a good reminder that work isn’t everything. That we need to put our family and our relationships first. There are times in life when you do need to work hard. I still believe though that you can maintain your most important relationships by simply being present. When you are in their company just listen without distractions. Being where we are physically is something a lot of us can easily forget how to do. I am determined this week to be where I actually am at all times.

Thank you for bringing so much more presence into my life
