Choice

I know, I know, I didn’t post for two days despite making the promise to post daily in December. The perfectionist in me is screaming, “You failed!!!” The reality is, I got caught up in prepping for and hosting a holiday party on Sunday. Monday rolled in demanding lots of time be spent teaching and editing. The truth is, after sitting in front of my computer editing other people’s writing for hours on end the last thing I want to do is continue sitting at the computer and indulge in my own writing. And here I am, with nothing much to say. Today brought lots of reminders that I cannot put self-care on the back burner and when I do not pause I become wildly uncentered, which only supports the further development of my frustration tolerance.

In true holiday spirit today I witnessed a car accident as two people vied for the title of, first-to-enter-the-mall-parking-garage and a woman hand a homeless man sitting on the sidewalk a wrapped present. A powerful reminder that we get to choose our actions and how we treat others in every moment. Choose wisely this holiday season.

I teach yoga, write, and edit. I live in a Brooklyn neighborhood that is changing faster than I can, or care to, keep up with. Manhattan still beckons me to her island a few subways stops away, reminding me of when I lived amongst her daily hustle and bustle.
