I think I've heard the Hawaiian Christmas song 20 times in the last six days...I am over it. It's one of those things that annoy me while working.
I have ample time to reflect, consider, analyze while working it seems. I get bored and then I obsess over decisions I have made to get to this point. I obsess or try to zone out into music. That is challenging as in the spirit of the holidays, most places are playing christmas music. For me, it becomes a bit much and I ready to return to more current music selections.
Speaking of music, I am going to check out a new yoga studio today. I know the instructor from attending other classes she teaches and also practicing alongside her at times too. She has a great flow and great selection of music. Previously, I purchased a 50 class package at my normal studio. I like the vibe of the place, the owner is kind and every instructor is welcoming/approachable. The only downside is the class selection. They offer classes that are a mix of bikram/flow. I am a "flow" girl and they do not offer enough of those classes. There is a noon class offered daily which I would attend regularly. That is, until, I took the real job. Now, I am lucky to attend my preferred class once a week.
I have the opportunity to attend one of their other studios and check out that vibe. I know there are more flow classes available at that location. The downside of that studio is that it is north of where I live and I don't want to grow attached to driving more.
When I lived in Denver, I drove four-six miles, round trip, on a daily basis. It is crazy that I put at least 1200 miles on my car monthly. What happened to the days of simplicity? I could walk to and from work. I do miss that aspect of living in Denver greatly.
In the spirit of the new year, I opted to revise my current vision board. My last one was focused on running, health and getting fit. After randomly choosing photos/words that inspire me now, I saw an emerging theme. Still centered on being healthy and living a healthy lifestyle, I am drawn to locations. I am inspired by wine country (a few photos of wine glasses, Paso Robles), chiles (Santa Fe), rocky mountains (I do love Denver). In addition, yoga and being happy. I guess that is what I am identifying with, most, as I conclude 2013. I choose to be happy in every aspect of my life. Even if that means I am disappointing my dad as he would prefer that I live in a more stable environment.
I know this is a lesson and one that I wanted. I must see where it leads and how to make sense of it. The vision board soothed me. My ideals have not altered while pursuing stability. I still yearn for more travel and wonder how to make it happen.
I view every day as an opportunity to grow, adapt and find my calling. Maybe it will happen today. A special happy birthday to my little sister, Jasmin. Finally entering the 30's and still so much available for her to discover.
