the day started out with me sleeping in until 5:30 AM, which threw me out of whack for the rest of the day. the good thing is that i was feeling much better today so maybe the sleep-in did me some good after all.
after a busy morning, i sat on the floor in yoga position to do my 15 minutes of meditation. after a little back pain yesterday, i took robyn's advice and placed a cushion under my bottom and.....no back pain. thanks for the suggestion, robyn!
after my meditation, i worked on my art for today - a mandala. it's the first mandala i've ever done but i enjoyed it so much that i plan to do more. i found it calming and relaxing.
affirmation for today - THERE IS CLARITY WITHIN ME AND AROUND ME
i've always noticed that when i do a clean up, re-organise and/or purge unwanted items in my home, that i always feel lighter and refreshed afterwards. it truly does feel like a breath of fresh air to me. it would seem that our external environment does have a connection with our inner wellbeing. for today, denise suggested clearing clutter from the bedroom or bathroom, being that these are the personal areas in the home. i generally manage to keep these rooms tidy anyway, however, the wardrobe in my bedroom is a little scary in areas, particularly the shelves. if i'm rushing about, which i usually am, i tend to just throw things on top of other things with the intention of sorting them later.......so that 'later' was today. i sorted, reorganised and purged unwanted items from one of the shelves in my wardrobe and i do plan to continue on to the other shelves over the next week. after that, i plan to tackle the garage/studio.....now THAT'S a BIG job but i'm feeling up to the task. i think i will feel like a whole, new me by the time i'm done.
my new motto - use it, love it or get rid of it!
love, light and peace to all ~
