week of awesomeness - day 04
If the past three days were about getting out and doing something, then today was about slowing down and enjoying the stillness. A quiet cup of coffee in the morning. A slow jog down a sunny street. A tough but meditative afternoon yoga class. A cooling lunchtime salad, giving myself the time and permission to simply enjoy the tactile sensation of chopping vegetables. A small glass of wine, because, hey, it's five o'clock somewhere. Ironically, the weather was absolutely stunning today (or at the very least, not cold/rainy/snowy/vortexy), and yet I spent the least amount of time outdoors. Instead of searching in vain for the signs of spring, I needed to open the windows, flush out the last of the winter doldrums, and let the cool spring air find me.
