This is the face of a girl who has been moving her body a lot in 2021. She’s happy.
There still isn’t an ideal time in the day. I’m still not a morning person. I still don’t drink enough water and I still come up with a lot of solid excuses to not. But the mental tricks my mind sometimes tries to play on me often disappear each time I stretch or move through a simple yoga flow. It’s like all the little stresses are removed from my headspace when I move. Because movement fills my soul and sometimes in years past, I’ve forgotten what a gift it is to have a body with feet that can point and arms that can lift and a spine that can lengthen. So far in 2021, rediscovering the way movement feeds my soul feels like a hug. And I’m giving myself a lot of gentle hugs this year.
PS- here’s me dancing back in January which was the start of rekindling my intention to move my body more and set aside all the excuses I’ve made over the last bajillion years.
