Well, the first two days went well. I was up about an hour before sunrise and off out to the garden I trundled. Feeling slightly self conscious but hey ho – going to do it anyway.
I was up when my alarm went off at 3:30am. So was my littlest little one – who was finding it difficult to settle and wanted feeding. So I stayed and fed him. Feeling guilty because I wasn’t able to do what I’d set my intent to do.
But there wasn’t much I could do about that. A quote from Buddha says:-
“If your compassion does not include yourself, it is incomplete.”
Yes I set an intent, and a commitment to practise for 108 days. That didn’t happen due to family life. Some people don’t have the luxury of family life getting in the way – they have to do what they need to do or else life begins to be very not fun.
So, today I had the chance to catch up. Not pre-sunrise, as again the littlest little one is suffering a bit (teeth, ears not sure…) but this afternoon. 2 lots of 12 Surya Namaskars.
Intense, but youch.
Thank you Kerry for the audio!!
Notes for going forwards, I’ll do the pre-sunrise one if children allow. If not, I’ll do it when I can during the day. Although being honest, pre sunrise feels lovely!
Inspiraton from day 2 – how to keep track of what repetition one is on – the eucalyptus leaves that are all over the garden!
