As I mentioned before, my work and personal calendars have been packed to the gills, often causing me to multi-task, think of the next task and therefore unable to savor and be in each moment as it happened.
A dear friend of mine lost a family member this week, and as we gathered at the church on the beautiful Friday morning, I soaked in the moment and the range of emotions from empathy to peace. The priest during the service talked about living in the moment- about trying just to be. This is a story I’ve been told many times during yoga practice, but easily dismissed as a thought only practiced by the greatest of yoginis.
This quote from college buddy Trish has stuck with me and I hope you take it in too.
