I look everything up. Look up. Looking UP.
I am on retreat at the Oregon Coast. I turned 50 last month and all I wanted to do was clear my head, renew my strength (6 weeks to handstand?!) and empty my soul to create space for abundant life.
abundant life = abounding fullness of joy and strength for mind, body, and spirit
There’s so much abounding in my life that I’m falling over myself. Literally – I fell big and bad FOUR TIMES this winter! In the high school parking lot right after teaching yoga (very thankful I was all stretchy and bendy). Down our front porch stairs (very thankful I bounced in such a way that I didn’t spill my Starbucks tippy cup of coffee). In the elementary school parking lot on my way in to help with the after-school ski club (very thankful I could even get up after that head banging, concussion causing impact). In Becky’s yoga class at Twisp Movement Studio when crazy sinus pressure caused me to completely lose my proprioception and fall on my face (very thankful that the horrible noise of my neck cracking wasn’t actually my neck breaking.) Just minutes before that last doozy of a fall I told Becky I was there for her to tell me when to breathe. Yes, that overwhelmed with my life that I wasn’t sure I could even continue breathing. Pretty much couldn’t – obviously.
Midway through my retreat, this came: How To Get Out Of Your Own Way
A song for you: “Look Upon the Lord” by Paul Baloche & Kari Jobe
A verse for you: “But when these things begin to happen, look up, and lift up your heads, because your redemption is near.” Luke 21:28
