I was scheduled to spend this weekend retreating in the mountains at the lovely farmhouse pictured here, but my body had other plans... so I am retreating in my bed instead!
This morning I was so upset, trying to decide whether to push myself and just get in the car for the 6 hour drive or surrender and hop back in bed. I was getting all worked up about it and then I thought, "Hold on a second! Take a breath. This is not some life-changing decision!" I realized I was placing way too much importance on this choice. Honestly, if my biggest problem today is to decide whether to go away for a weekend of yoga or stay in bed for a weekend of rest then I am doing really well! Sometimes I get so wrapped up in day-to-day stuff, I lose sight of the big picture.
Coming soon: how to have your very own retreat without leaving home (and other blog posts about something besides me being sick, I promise)
