Bridget from my hot yoga days loved to say that the face is soft.
If your face is not soft, you're holding your breath and, if you're holding your breath, you're not doing yoga. Got it...
I've been uncluttering which shares a weight loss core value: it didn't happen overnight.
I've been letting go of books that I thought I would never get rid of and, as I've been deciding what to donate, I've been skimming books including books of quotes that were given to me as gifts.
After yoga, I felt particularly drawn to this quote:
When you feel terrific, notify your face. *Yoga, in general, and Jen, specifically, made me think of this next quote since she put an eye pillow in place for me after I ended up at the opposite end of the pillow and didn't realize that it was time for savasana since time had gotten away from me...
Take the gentle path. -George Herbert **For now, I am not putting Life's Little Instruction Book or Simple Wisdom in the donation pile. Uncluttering, after all, doesn't happen overnight.
