I don’t want a go home husband so I can screw around with other people, I just like having my own life. I have a fierce need for independence. I’m a highly introverted Aquarius woman; I wasn’t born to be traditional. Just thinking of a white picket fence makes me itch.
Hit the yoga mat this morning like a good girl. Quick 12-minute routine of sun salutations and balance poses to start the day.
Reality can suck, if we want it to be different … or we can accept reality for what it is, and be grateful for it. This takes practice, because it’s hard to be grateful when you feel you’re being treated badly, or you’ve lost a job, or you’ve lost a loved one, or you’re battling illness. But this is the reality you have, not the ideal you wish you had. And it’s a reality that contains beauty, if we choose to see it. This skill makes us much more at peace with whatever we need to deal with.
