I awoke with a HEAVY feeling of stress and anxiety...

had coffee...(french vanilla)...
(my favorite!)
even THAT didn't make the difference...
my eyes were red....lashes discombobulated...
I was a mess.....
I had meetings and phone calls scheduled....
the PAPERWORK was piled high....
there were unanswered messages on the machine...
unopened texts and emails on the blackberry....
I had taken care of EVERYONE and EVERYTHING for SO long...
I was just plain BURNT
and then it occurred to me...
I NEED SOME CLEANSING,CATHARTIC,  ASHTANGA YOGA!
I'd somehow lost my way....
muddled way down deep within the maze of New York's chaotic inertia...
and I'd forgotten my cherished ASANA practice...
YES...I'd kept up with the requisite pilates and the 200 ab curls every other day...
But I'd completely allowed the SPIRITUAL and EMOTIONAL
 HEALING part of my life to slip away...
so I set out for downtown...
off to JIVAMUKTI....
SCREW the paperwork !!
It would have to wait....
and I spent the next 2 hours or so....
barefoot and ENGAGED....
twisting and bending in myriad ways that I'd almost forgotten....
and my heart OPENED wide....
and as the sweat spilled off of my brow...
so did the tension....
and now...
I FEEL FABULOUS !!
and I can, yet again, approach the tasks and obligations of yesterday...
with renewed vigor and uncompromising wellness....
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOGA !!
