Perfect Moment Monday: Proud Warrior

My yoga mat has become a sacred space, imbued with my own energy — de-frenzified for a few moments. When I roll it out and begin my practice, my body responds by breathing more deeply. My mind responds by yoking itself to my breath and my body. My spirit responds by settling in, by more fully occupying the cells of my physical body.

One morning this month, my spirit soared over the mat next to me. My son joined me at yoga class. Not just because he’s an athlete and knows that doing yoga will help him gain strength, flexibility, balance and focus. But just to be with his mama. My son got up early on a day off to hang out with me doing what I like to do.

Yoga wasn’t easy for him. He struggled but didn’t quit. For the final pose, savasana (corpse pose in which all you do is relax, the yin to the rest of the practice’s yang) our hands reached out to each other, loving through our bodies and souls.

In that moment of union, all was perfection.

Perfect Moment Monday is about noticing a perfect moment rather than creating one. Perfect moments can be momentous or ordinary or somewhere in between. On the last Monday of each month we engage in mindfulness about something that is right with our world (NOTE: For an indefinite period, starting in March Perfect Moment Monday is moving to the Perfect Moment Project.

Perfect Moment Monday: Omaha!

One recent Sunday afternoon my family members and I gathered in our LaZBoy pews, joined our voices in hymns of hope and praise, and communed together with chips and salsa.

Our prayers were answered. The Broncos are going to the Super Bowl!

Denver Broncos on the line

The last time this happened, neither of my children were born and I was in the TTC trenches (trying to conceive) wondering if I’d ever be a mom. And here I am today sharing this excitement with my two tweens.

Shallow though it may be, I am hoping that this January perfect moment leads to a February perfect moment.

Go Broncos! Keep Calm and Peyt-on!
