Feeling a bit inspired to try new things?
This was a banner week for first time ever stuff, starting with Yoga.
Never taken a Yoga class prior to this week and I have taken three!
Not a fan of Yoga speak which one instructor used plenty of, I just replaced
my own words those of the instuctor.
I don't have a third eye (?)
a lotus flower between my eyebrows is not my foundation.
I have two eyes, and if something is between them I need tweezers :-)
My foundation is found only in Christ.
I'm not trying to be critical of the practice, I just modify it to work for me.
I found myself in many positions that I actually could not get out of,
other than just falling gently to one side. I'm sure it was comical to some....
I actually had some very sore muscles so it for sure is a work out.
I purchased a yoga mat and bag, and yoga socks, going to continue as long as
I feel it benefits me....the stretching and relaxation that came with it is great.
On Veterans day I spent the day with my favorite veteran,
we hit the gym and then off to the golf course.
We didn't actually play as those behind me would not have been at all happy.
I practiced my swing (a lot) and actually got pretty comfortable with it.
I will admit, if I had to say after day one, it may not be the sport for me...
I spent most of the hot time in the sun imagining a
shaded golf cart and a nice cold drink
in my hand ;-)
Then we moved on to chipping and putting.
With the condition of my back, being bent over just enough to kill my lower
back was required.
We ran into a friend who took the time to advise me for a good amount of time.
Bless his heart, he had to be so frustrated with me....but he hung in there as did I.
At the end of the day,
well, lets just say my body was feeling three days of Yoga and my attempt to learn golf.
I'll continue to learn the sport of golf, with a deep desire to just drive a golf cart
with a cold drink in hand.
This all got me thinking, perhaps I should start creating a list of things I want to try.
It won't be anything like jumping out of a plane or flying one, lets not get too crazy.
Any first time things you would like to try?
I would love to hear about them.
First times, it's what echos from my heart today...
