change of plans

Tonight I was supposed to get a Thai yoga massage. In fact, I've been counting down the days, hours, minutes until this massage since I made the appointment. However, sometimes things do not end up going exactly as planned. I was reminded of this truth again today. After leaving work, I checked my voice messages, and I had a voice mail from the massage therapist stating she had been sick this week and today her daughter had come down with it, so she really needed to be with her. While I was momentarily disappointed, I totally understood. There was a time this last minute chage would have gotten me anxious and upset and perhaps I'd have even let it ruin my entire evening. However, since embarking on my yoga journey, I am much more willing and able to go with the flow. I now have an appointment for the Thai yoga massage March 5 (her next available opening) and have already started counting down.

I did go ahead and get a swedish massage tonight, it was a matter of self-care after the way my body felt from this week. I am also getting a manicure and pedicure after teaching yoga tomorrow. My little feet have been so neglected this winter, and I've been doing my own at-home manicures for a few months now, so I decided to go ahead and splurge a bit. I'm officially titling this weekend "My self-care weekend"...the perfect way to finish up Jan. and start a new month.

Hope you're weekend is filled with much down-time, peace, love, and joy!

I'm so sorry the Thai yoga massage didn't happen, but I'm really impressed with the way you had a different massage instead of just feeling disappointed.

I can learn from that.

Good for you!!! Sounds like a wonderful weekend. I too was doing my at home pedis and then a place I used to frequent sent me a flyer with an amazing pedi special so I dove in! It is so nice to be pampered! I have them scheduled for the day before my YTT weekend sessions so my feet look pretty.
Enjoy. I plan on reading and napping this weekend - winter is a time to rest and reflect.

Good for you! Winter is a time to rest and reflect. All forward folds are favorites of mine right now - the surrendering of it all and the ability to look inward.
