Morning moving meditation vs huge to do list

I crave my morning moving  meditation.Yeah , its that time of year. SOOO hard to be ignoring the huge to do list.  The to do list that  gets even crazier now. Be it the gym or yoga, or hiking or walking or 20 squats at home , what ever! How do I  NOT  let that time fall off the list? I say as I fall victim to the magnet in my pants taking hold of the magnet on my chair at my desk… HMMM where are my  hiking boots ? I know my brain is working full steam early am so … taking a 5 minute wacko break may help more often during the day. morning meditation, hiking, sunrise, Arizona

 

Life is a matter of perspective

Just as the  spring flowers in the desert are enjoyed by the opportunistic

The window of opportunities can often be fleeting.

So much to say and show from the past week.  But this for now …

I am so grateful that yesterday  I was able to up my hiking distance and carrying load . I am NO where near where I was several years ago. When we look at our lives  I feel at times how tricky it is for the mind to know when to say GO FOR IT, and when to say…. REALLY ARE YOU NUTS? I am reading WILD and humbled by how insane the author was to push herself  the way she did.  Today I am grateful I was able to be on a  10 mile day hike with temps ONLY getting into mid 80s are spring flowers galore. No it was not flat and yes my back and neck  was able to  once again allow me shooting with a “real ” camera.  More photos and posts to come.

How can we not take anything for granted? It is so hard to remember to be mindful of  that when our bodies  and minds and lives are able to do what we ask of them. And when we are not able to do what we want when do choose to resolve to move on and say … that was then. And when do we strive to push towards goals that we had. Just pondering and open for conversation.
