I am writing this on my iPhone on the road so pardon any weirdness with spelling or formatting. Or content for that matter.
The hubs and I struck out on our road trip today after work in order to get the worst part out of the way. Tulsa to Amarillo. Not a fun drive at all. I thought it would be a great opportunity for me to write. A long period of time with nothing really to do. There has been so much going on I feel like there are hundreds of things I could be writing about but the truth is at this point it’s all past and I just want to look forward.
May is a month of beginnings and dreams and I want to revel in all that is coming my way. This trip kicks off what is sure to be an amazing and challenging month. Five days of driving through New Mexico sightseeing, camping, hiking, and photographing. It is something I have wanted to do for a long time and I am so excited to be experiencing it with my love.
The following weekend is my yoga teacher training. I’m not sure words can express how thrilled and grateful I am to get to be a certified yoga teacher. Being able to share the gift of yoga really is a dream come true for me. I am nervous and excited. And looking for a place to teach. Community service is a requirement of the Yoga Fit training program but I have known for a while I wanted to use yoga to give back to the community. I have high hopes for finding a place I can teach and help others.
A week after my teacher training, I begin MBA classes at The University of Tulsa. Scared to death would be an understatement for how I feel about getting my MBA. I know it will be worth it in the end but two years of classes three to four nights a week does not thrill me. It will be hard to find time for my hubs much less my yoga. I worry I’ve taken on too much. But that is what I do.
My plans for getting out all of the things I’ve been thinking about writing fell apart as soon as I decided to write. But I think it is exactly what I needed. A chance to say out loud I am moving forward. My favorite quote is by Henry David Thoreau: “Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.”
That is exactly what I am doing, my friends.
