Dreaming of Kettle Bells

My aunt sent me a great quote this morning: "It does not do well to dwell on dreams and forget to live." 

--J.K. Rowling 

Though I've never read any of her books (yet---for some reason I try to shy away from jumping on bandwagons), I really like this idea because I'm someone who tries really hard to construct perfection and ultimately, life never adheres to the dream world you create. I don't mean this in a negative way, but it's 2009 and I'm trying to think about how I can be living my life that makes me the most happy.

I think too much. I live in my head. So in 2009 I'm moving in the direction of body. I'll be a certified yoga teacher in June! And the other day, one of my regulars at the bar gave me an awesome tip. Free kettle bell certification! I've never really worked out with those, but I do love weight lifting and so I think, yes, anything that can make me stronger is good...

i think i know what you mean. i am learning again to fully take in the simplest things. breathing, walking, the way the sun reflects off of buildings, the sky through winter branches. having a practice helps me a lot.

That which does not kill you makes you stronger. The 2009 philosophy is working, eh? :-)
