I decided to skip the alarm clock today, and wake up with an hour in Anusara class instead. This 6:30 a.m. class has become my Tuesday routine, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Saluting the “sun”, opening the hips, challenging sleepy muscles with a balance or twist, and then
taking a mini-nap resting again in sweet Savasana.
Joy is doing something for myself – stretching and spending an hour practicing something that challenges me – before the sun comes up.
Here’s another sweet thing to wake up to; a quote that puts things in perspective:
“Joy is what happens to us when we allow ourselves
to recognize how good things really are.” -Marianne Williamson

Joy is being outside on a Saturday morning, enjoying 11 miles of a good long run.
Joy is clicking “purchase”, getting the ticket to finally go and visit a very best friend!
Joy is relaxing at night, with your best friend/significant other; dining, watching your favorite shows, reading side by side, and setting the alarm for your own respective workouts at an early hour!
Joy is checking training runs off the plan, each one bringing me closer to DC.
Joy is fresh groceries, ready to be molded into delicious, healthy home-cooked meals.
Joy is creating another training plan for my Sis, so we can run Half-marathon #2 together!
Joy is fresh-out-of-the-oven pizza, loaded with vegetables – just the way we like it.
Joy is turning OFF the TV, and turning ON the music. I love me some tunes…
Joy is a weekend trip the mountains, because they’re that close and that beautiful.
Joy is opening up the computer to write whatever I want, whenever I want – having the ability to elaborate on what inspires or motivates me, or got me going for that day!
Yup, life is good.
What good things are going on for you right now?
