I realized this morning that every muscle in my neck and shoulders hurt, and I am thinking what is going on with me today. I remembered how stressful our drive home through the storms and flooding was last night, how tense Rick and I were during the drive and what a relief to make it home.
Then I knew why those muscles were so sore and painful, all that stress.
Stress is a proven health destroyer. No wonder people love yoga so much...it really does help.
Last night as darkness loomed, the rain was pouring and the roads were no longer visible because of the rising waters, Rick kept looking at me, saying just breathe, it will be ok, just breathe.
He was my teacher, because until he told me to breathe, I didn't realize I was holding my breath.
Today has been restful and peaceful. Our friend Fred came over, we grilled steaks and talked about what we would like to accomplish this coming year. I hear a hot cup of tea calling my name, I am already in my pjs.
Wishing you all peace, rest and calm tonight, joy and laughter tomorrow.
Goodnight, Sweet dreams
