Also, in the class I’m teaching, today we talked about how pieces of art that relate to love are inspired by real life, and how sometimes things going on in the artist’s life play an important role in what the artist creates.
What I mean to say is that one student brought in The Fault in Our Stars so we talked about John Green and Esther and it was brilliant.
Sometimes (often) I hold onto things because I’m afraid I’ll need then at some later point, even if the things are torn or have holes in them or are otherwise damaged. I hold onto them out of some sense of terror that I won’t find something to replace it which. And then I wonder why I have so much stuff.
I’m at the end of my work day, feeling pretty tired, with more still left to do when I go home. I feel like I never accomplish anything over the course of a day. I feel like I’m always behind. This feeling goes away eventually, right? I sure hope so.
I went to early morning yoga today in anticipation of this exact feeling, and boy am I glad I did. I’d rather spend my energy on things that reward and nourish me than on toxic things that weigh me down. At least if I do early morning yoga, I’ll spend more time on something that motivates me, and I won’t have any energy left to spend on the things that drain me.
That’s my thought, in any case.
