Wish I were back here....isn't it gorgeous. Blue skies, palm trees and water. This is what I imagine when I meditate. Or, when people tell me to visualize a peaceful, tranquil place. You know this happens sometimes in yoga classes. To become present and slow down the breathing. It is a useful technique to let go of whatever is going on outside of the four walls. Think of a place that is calming. For me, this is the illustration. This is beauty. This is relaxing and pureness. This is where I would love to be today.
I have a day off and am always planning travel. I get caught up in what I should be doing or what I could be doing when in actuality, mostly, I dream of traveling.
Rincon, Puerto Rico. I had a lovely time celebrating my friend's wedding on the beach. In mid March, I spent five days there. The final day of my trip, I was able to walk on the beach and take some photos. Of course, I had the opportunity to do this at any point on the trip. My friend's were very gracious and organized. I just didn't make time to explore the beach.
I do miss the view. I should have gotten up, earlier, and walked on the beach. Literally, we stayed steps away from beach. Maybe in the fall I will return to Rincon to see the beach and their wine shop. Tiffany and Dan purchased a wine shop in March and are about to open. Permits, choosing product and other details have been preoccupying their time. I would love to return and support them. Did I mention the beach?
Yes, back to the day....I have a day off today and have some things planned. Laundry, cleaning my house, some yoga....maybe read later. I need to incorporate more of that into my life. My colleague has given me 75 books, I think, in the last month. Might as well start decreasing the clutter.
The beach also makes me think of yoga. Wouldn't it be great to attend a retreat on the beach? I wonder if I could make that happen. Spend 8-10 days in paradise while focusing on health and wellness. Sounds incredible. I should focus on adding to my clients and experience and make it happen. Maybe that will be what I meditate on today. Abundance, travel and combining dreams.
I have a few other tasks to complete before turning myself loose on what remains to be seen. I asked Roxie to meet me for lunch and hope that it will happen. Until then, I will dream of blue skies and waves. I know that I can return to a beach someday soon. If not Rincon, maybe Greece. I have yet to visit those epic islands and it is a must do for me.
Until then, cheers!
