Getting started

A few years ago, I didn't have or use a computer, but my friends and clients pestered me until finally I agreed to accept one as a Christmas gift. Without one, who could I ask all my crazy questions? But now, I have Google. I am really glad that I joined the computer world. I have fun and stay in touch through Facebook; I ask Google something or other on most days; my clients are glad to be able to PM me at any time of day or night. Now, it's time for something new: I've been introduced to blogging. I have progressed from checking my email once a month to once a day, and this should get better with time too.

Getting started is usually the hardest part of anything. A new way of moving, eating, breathing, blogging… it seems difficult to establish a routine. There was a time when I didn't want to make my bed in the morning, but my enjoyment of turning down the covers (about an hour before bedtime) and getting into a comfy, cozy, neat bet outweighed my desire to get up and go. I didn't always take time to give thanks before my feet hit the floor in the morning. Now I look at the blue sky and green trees outside of my window, glad for the people in my life, and the challenges and joys that this day is sure to bring, and I acknowledge my gratitude. I reap the benefits all day long because I'm tuned into the positive vibration of life. Routines of yoga, qigong, and breath work are ever evolving, and sometimes I have to really push to "just do it". If you know me, you know about me and water. It's taken years, but now, all I drink is water (okay, and some coffee). I am doing a good job of hydration. There was a time, not so long ago, that I ate eggs as a treat now and again, but now, my usual first meal includes one or two eggs, fresh from the chicken, seasoned with turmeric. I still haven't acquired a taste for it, but medicine doesn't always taste good, so I eat it. So here I am, trying to create a new routine. I hope to blog a few times a week. I hope that it becomes a pleasant experience, like the gratitudes I begin each day with. I hope that I acquire a taste for it. I am sure that it will be as worth my while as are the other routines that i have incorporated into my life.

I have posted twice, already, and realize that I skipped my beginning! I start each day with a prayer of gratitude, and it seems to me that my blog should be the same. I am grateful that life has brought me back to writing. I am grateful for the encouragement people have given me. Many thanks to my clients who tell me that they see me living the truth I speak with them. Sleep, eat, drink water and breathe! Thank you!
