Before that happens, and in the midst of all the Karma Kids madness, my best friend in the world is getting married.
I can't even express how excited I am and how anxious I am and how much I want everything to go off completely without a hitch and most importantly, how deeply I just want her to feel as completely and perfectly happy as possible. I am so excited to see my parents, who are coming up for the event, and some of the best friends a girl could ever hope for who are flying or bus-ing in.
With all of this in mind - work, love, celebrations, travel - I sat at the end of March and decided that my mantra for the month needed to be:
As I talked about in the last entry, a monthly mantra can sometimes be a way for me to actively engage in whatever yogic platitude I'm trying to bring into my life. I think Savor touches on two points - being grateful and being present. I'm hoping Savor can help me slow down a little bit, and truly enjoy the rare and special time that I get to spend with so many people that I love this month, celebrating so many unique and special once-in-a-lifetime moments.
When I tell myself to "be present," it sometimes triggers a mild little panic of wondering if I'm doing it right. But to savor something - to savor that glass of wine, to savor a reunion dinner with beautiful friends who just moved home - I know how to do that.
This one is getting married in a few short days, and I can't even handle all the emotions I'm having. So I'm just going to try to slow down, stay present, be so freaking grateful, and savor all of it.
