Today’s words come from Dave Romanelli, better know as “Yeah Dave” in the yoga world ❤ These words are taken from his book, Yeah Dave’s Guide to Livin’ the Moment: Getting to Ecstasy Through Wine, Chocolate and Your iPod Playlist. His book will make you burst out laughing and at the same time give you awesome insight on living your life in the moment…highly recommended read!
“Take a moment to imagine a day without a clock. It might sound refreshing but most of us (especially me) would flinch and twitch on countless occasions seeking the reassurance of a schedule. If only we could get past this grasping for the familiar. When we lose track of time, we loosen our grip on life. And in loosing, the mind opens, creating new space for fresh ideas…time distortion most often happens doing what we love in life. The challenge is cultivating a willingness to move beyond routine, a curiosity for mystery, and an appetite for insight and revelation.”
Every weekend, my fiancé and I, along with our two dogs (our children) go hiking in the woods…we pick different reservations/parks in our area to explore. It’s a complete and total disconnect, a time distortion for us, from time, work, t.v., internet and stresses of daily life for us to talk and appreciate our family. Sometimes there is no talking and the silence between us is also very peaceful as we listen and admire the nature around us. We smile, laugh and on occasions get into deep conversations about our lives, the world and our future. For us, these hikes give our family a weekly connection that we truly look forward to.
Today, as you sit down to write in your journal, think about a time where you lost track of time doing something you love. Write about how you felt, where you were, who you were with and how you can take steps to make it a more frequent activity in your life ❤
