Aug 14- Dry

Meditation: Calm, Calm Light
Length: 5 minutes
Where: Bedroom, Los Angeles
How It Felt: Delightful
Who Joined Me: (A very wet) Tigre

Yesterday was spent running around, working out, cleaning, reading, and making some final preparations before I leave tomorrow morning (really tonight) for Michigan! Party is in six days!

I finally started reading Untamed by Glennon Doyle and I couldn’t put it down, which means I’m rushing a bit today. All I can say is every single woman needs to read this book. It’s one of the most inspiring things I’ve read in a very long time. Seriously- if I chose one book out of the maybe 100 I’ve read in the past 2-3 years, I would say read this one. Pick it up. It’s brilliant.

That out of the way- quick post! Trying to fit in a last hike before I pack and get to LAX!

I took a break from prepping and to do some yoga and meditate last night. I chose a “Calm Light” session- light guidance, mostly just breathing and staying present. I really needed to stop and breathe.

It felt wonderful! Right before I started, I turned the bathtub faucet on for my weird, weird cat. He loves drinking water out of the tap or licking it off the tub. He has three water bowls in our home, changed daily or every other day and filled with fresh, cold filtered water… but he likes the tub. Or our water glasses. Sometimes the toilet, if we forget to close it.

Cats are so weird.

So, I turned it to a drip for him and sat down to meditate for just five minutes. About 30 seconds in, Tigre jumped into my lap for some “mom finally sat down” snuggles- dripping wet! His entire face and head was soaked, his back was dripping, it was hilarious. Oh, Tigre. My weird baby.

It made me smile, and I pet him (and dried him with my sleeve) as I focused on the breath. Just lovely. I love meditating. I love what it does to my mind. I’m so grateful for it. And for Tigre.

And that I just checked the weather app and the possibility of rain on our party day seems to have passed.

And to get to my sweet, strong husband’s arms in about 27 hours!

Life is good! Wild, but good!
