The practice, my rescuer
I feel relaxed. Also patient.
So yesterday I found a page that even puts an ISDN-No on the calender. Then one can sell it on Amazon, i.e. All the other conditions were great, too. I should add that I had former serious attempts to create a calender. Without success. So full of hope I tried to understand this new platform. 'In a few minutes you'll be there', I read finally. I worked hours already on that calender. Uploading pictures, adjusting pictures, filling in forms....it all used up a lot of time. After having read this optimistic note about the few minutes it still took me hours. Suddenly I felt so hungry.
Overnight I had soaked chickpeas. I was not at all in the mood to cook these chickpeas up to 2 hours till I could use them in this simple recipe. I don't like canned food anymore. What to do? I eat out, I thought. I went to that restaurant that makes burgers, they offer also a vegan one with fried potatoes. I mean I was hungry. I went. Just after having ordered I realized that I had forgotten my purse at home. I told this the waiter and she was very cool. I could eat and return later to pay. When my burger came it was a meat burger. I returned it. I got my vegan burger and I swore that this was the last time that I ate there. I almost ran home, got my money, returned to the restaurant, paid and felt free again.
At home again I wanted to work on another calender. I cannot explain why my first calender is a calender with pictures of the wild cats of Bulgaria. Why didn't I start with a yoga calender? Soon I found out why. The yoga pictures are everywhere on my PC. One must spend time in organizing all the creations. One must!!!! I gave up to create a second calender as it was late already.
At night I woke up. The name of my calender is 'The wild cats of Bulgaria.' Oh my, I thought: Perhaps this is wrong and it must read ' The wild cats from Bulgaria.' This drove me crazy. So glad that I slept finally again. I don't care at all, was the last opinion before dream land captured me again.
My routines get stronger and at 5am I was out of bed. My practice this morning was unexpectedly good. Perhaps because I had no expectations. I practiced slow, yet attentive.
Here I am again. Full of energy. Ready to do what comes next. Again my practice saved me. My mood is excellent. It took me years to do supta kurmasana, I can work a few days on a calender, isn't it. One step after the other. One breath after the other.
