What Are You Willing to Sacrifice?

SETTING THE SCENE

CalmUp® photo of smoked pigI was at our friends’ home for a pig roast—kosher, I know. For some reason, I felt moved to take a photo of the smoked pig before we cut into him. I told my friend, Karen Brass (see Noteworthy Story March 2012 and What’s New?), that the photo would likely end up in a blog. Karen then suggested an appropriate blog title, What Are You Willing to Sacrifice?

I must have tucked that question into my subconscious…

HERE’S WHAT HAPPENED

I awoke at 1:30 AM to the realization that CalmUp® was over. This wasn’t just a possible option; this was a definitive decision based on solid reasoning:

1.    I thought that I wasn’t living my priority as a wife.
2.    I thought that I wasn’t living my priority as a mom.
3.    I had developed a business plan but so far seemed to mostly have a hobby.

How could I preach buzzing when I found myself clearly busy? The weekend was over, and I hadn’t done my laundry, cleaned the bathroom, planned meals, or worked in the garden. What was I willing to sacrifice?

You naturally rise above all of your responsibilities when you die; why not rise above your responsibilities while you’re alive?

That way, you can become grateful for every part of your day.

On or Off?

THIS MORNING I was on my yoga mat. I enjoy doing yoga from the comfort of my living room. The challenge of a yoga video, however, is that there are no fellow yogis to motivate me to stay on the mat.

I was about halfway through my routine when I started thinking about some of the other things I could be doing. I silently told myself, Stay on the mat. I knew I could do it. The next pose was one of my favorites.

It’s so easy to be seduced away from the moment—so many important things to be done. I’m proud to share that I stuck it out. I stayed on the mat, and I feel great.

LAST WEEK I was on my yoga mat. I’m not a serious yogi—I maintain a flexible schedule. Believe me, I accept food offers over down dog.

I was about 15 minutes into the routine when I started thinking about sitting with my son who was watching The Big Bang Theory in the other room. I silently told myself, Stay on the mat. Nah, I’d rather chill out with my boy.
