Thursday Latelies used to be posts where I shared, via video, a few things I was loving for the week. This week I’m not feeling a video but I wanted to share some things anyway. I’ve been alluding to various changes in my life these last few posts so here we go!
I mentioned this once before, but never really talked about it again – Bobby and I moved across town to a bigger, newer apartment and we couldn’t be happier. Things were shaky at first (aren’t they always) but I have gotten to love my new space. Here are some pics. I haven’t quite finished arranging so maybe these will be “before” pictures.
(I think I can mostly fix what he did – stupid cat thought the chair was a new scratching post. Also, I just noticed in this picture – he is certainly looking slimmer than he used to!)
Aside from the move, two other big things have happened in my life lately – I got a new job (I start tomorrow) and I started yoga teacher training. I’m certainly excited about the job, but more on that later.
At the beginning of yoga teacher training they told us that the next three months would change our lives. We would make new (amazing) friends, and we might outgrow some of our old ones. We would deepen our practices. We’d probably be emotional at times, ranging from ecstatic to despairing – yoga tends to bring up old feelings.
Over the last month (four full weekends of training, plus an off weekend) I have definitely seen change happen. The new friends I have made are some of the most amazing women (and men) I’ve ever met. On the flip side of that, I’ve also realized which relationships in my life just don’t click anymore. Coming to that realization can be confusing and difficult. On the food end, I’ve been more veggie-focused because most of the people involved in the program are vegetarian or veg-leaning. I still eat meat, but it’s been a little less frequent. I’ve been more “let it go” and less “hold onto things.” If that makes sense.
