My favorite time of the year in Washington is now. It’s the warm weather but still the chance of rainy days, sunny days, whatever…but its light. It feels light. You wake up and all the birds are chirping, the sun is rising at 5:45am, and it stays light longer.
This is the best time to go hiking. Someday it would be nice to just leave and travel the world just to go hiking and see the beauty in every country that way. Then I would at some point return home, teach yoga, and hopefully someday start a yoga studio somewhere.
My life does not have the same heart as the others around me…I know we are all different but sometimes I feel I am REALLY different for I want nothing materialistic, I don’t even know if I want a family, I don’t know if this is a hint of lack of commitment towards everything showing right now…but that may be the case. I don’t want a 9-5 job; I don’t even really care if I ever make a lot of money.
Have you ever noticed that the more money you have, the more you feel entitled to buy something expensive like a car, house, wardrobe, vacation, and a lot of others, because you deserve it! You work so hard, you deserve to buy something… but have you noticed you then have this expensive object, you then must keep up the payments, or fix expensive repairs, worry about things getting stolen, worry about buying security for your expensive things? I think you should buy things that make you happy, but sometimes the most freeing feeling is that no matter what leaves you, what breaks, what gets stolen, will never hurt your little soul. Its true. When you have a LOT OF STUFF, you also have a lot to lose.
Anyway I got off topic. What I’m trying to say is that sometimes you need to just buy what money cant buy, and that’s your health, its hiking that mountain and being grateful for what is free like the beauty of this world. Its spending time taking care of yourself and forgetting all the media and materialism in this world. It was so beautiful out! We saw two snakes, a few chipmunks and squirrels, and at the top of the cliff a HUGE eagle flew right next to us! It was so amazing and close, maybe just 8-10 feet away, it was massive. Below us were also bat caves! We wanted to go see them but the trail was closed off today.
Yesterday was a great day. I go to yoga teacher training in a month exactly!!!! Been working on letting go a lot:), and living light.
