Word for the day: Equanimity
Equanimity can be defined as “state of mental or emotional stability or composure arising from a deep awareness and acceptance of the present moment” (as stated in Wikipedia) or the state of “evenness of mind especially under stress” (as defined in the Merriam-Webster online dictionary).
Today I am reminded of equanimity…remembering to find balance in whatever situation I am at in order to remain centered and focused, despite the things going on around me. Yes, bad weather (errr…it’s been raining all day long) really gets to me.
Tonight I am grateful
♥ to have been able to stay home, dry and safe from this rainy weather.
♥ for powdered mashed potatoes teeheeehee
♥ for the discovery of Christina Perri’s music
♥ for continued progress in my yoga poses and my practice in general
♥ that I was reminded of ahimsa, or kindness and non-violence….as a dear friend of mine always puts it, be kind to yourself, Tink…
