Not exactly, but there’s just something about the way this week has gone that has inspired me and a lot of other people to stop putting things off and start doing what we know is right.
Based on the general tone of the readings I’ve done so far for the year, I think this might be because there was something repressive and almost sinister about 2009, and now that we are mentally prepared to NOT be in that year, we can operate beyond it. There are still some interesting influences out there, but nothing so awful that we can’t easily overcome or step around.
I started doing yoga again, and it’s so much easier than when I tried it last time. I think whatever health crisis I was going through was perhaps a little worse than I suspected because I always felt so tired and sore after doing yoga, sometimes for days. This time, it’s not exactly a cinch or super-easy, but I feel energized instead of depleted. That is a very good thing. I’m using Hittleman’s 28-Day Yoga plan (used copies for a penny, definitely worth it). I’m going through and doing each daily program as many days as it takes to feel really comfortable with it.
But I am definitely going to need to see a chiropractor, and the good news is, I just found one! 🙂
Also, I’m not sure if I mentioned it here, but I have a sincere desire to write and knit at the same time, and to that end, I found a copy of Dragon Naturally Speaking again (version 10, preferred). I spent a little time training it last night, and we’ll see how it goes. The last version I used was 7, and while it was relatively good at what it was, it was not sufficient for my needs. I’m told that 10 is far superior, and I’m hoping that eventually I’ll be able to talk out my stories at least as quickly as I can type them, which is pretty darned quick.
(Get it? Writing and knitting? “Darned” quick”? …. yeah, that was pretty lame…)
Those readings are still available for $15. No, I can’t spot any more freebies this year – I actually have a financial goal – but I will say that the readings have been all a little different from what anyone was expecting. They tell cohesive stories, though, and that’s the beauty of them.
