Ten days into 2011 and I feel… hopeful! With a little more time on my hands than before, I find myself looking forward to filling my empty minutes at the gym.  I don’t know what it is.  Maybe it’s the new year or the release I have attained by finishing so many applications and paintings; maybe it’s the fact that I’ve been going to a cleaner, quieter gym location, or maybe it’s just good fortune.  Regardless of the source, I am grateful for my new-found motivation and connection with my body.  I just want to keep moving and and releasing my energy!  Right now I feel like achieving my body-goals will be a breeze, a natural extension of simply doing what I want to be doing.  Isn’t that, after all, the point of all of this slow healing work?

It may also be easier to focus on exercise than other areas of my life right now.  I simply love the knowledge that, when I am at the gym, there is nothing else I should be doing to better my life.  When I am at home, it still feels like I am being pulled in an impossible number of directions, despite the fact that this feeling is slowly subsiding.   Leaving home to go to the gym has become a kind of escape, an oasis in my days.  I love it.

My other resolutions are going just fine, all except for the ten minute cushion thing.  That will be a year-long learning process, I can tell.  Ooh!  A few friends are on board for February’s Daily Movement Month!  YOU are welcome to join too 🙂  More on that soon.  I’m quite excited and, even just from planting the idea in my mind, I have already started moving more even on my days “off” because it just feels so good!

Hoping the beginning of your 2011 is exploding with hope and joy!
