Cherished Gifts

Today has been my best day since treatment last week, though even today I spent couch time before going to teach for a few hours.  If you are still at that place in your life where your energy is boundless, where health issues are someone else's.......I envy you.  All I can tell you, is please don't take your energy or health for granted.  Both are priceless gifts that should be cherished.

My classes today were based on the third chakra, the solar plexis, the energy point that deals with confidence, self, and transformation.  It seemed the perfect class for my students, being at an addiction center can take away all your confidence, and change or transformation can be terrifying.  Finding one's self through the jungle of addiction is something of a miracle.

Several students came up to me after class, telling me how much yoga was helping, how they loved class.  Seeing their faces and joy in their eyes always assures me, I am in the right place, on the right path. Knowing that my knowledge can help, that my skills can encourage makes my difficult days more bearable.

Thank you all once again for you thoughts and prayers, for myself and my friend Louis.
Blessings of joy, and good health to everyone.
