It's crazy how much teacher training has kicked my brain into high gear. Well, I guess it's always been in high gear, but it's sort of redirecting the energy into some more consistency, a bit more appreciation and thoughtfulness, and a large chunk of random things that seem to come from way out of nowhere. I guess it's mixing it up and laying it out—like brownie batter I suppose. Mix it up; lay it out in a pan to bake.
I lost my point (which may be the point). ANYWAYS. I think that with learning to meditate comes a desire to be able to focus on the present moment in every day life, but at the same time, it comes with finding connections and being grateful for what is in front of you.
Today is a gorgeous fall day. The light is amazing and you couldn't ask for better weather. I cashed in a personal day and headed out to a farm this morning with a friend. I think it's rare that life hands you people that you connect with instantly, for whatever reason, and on whatever level. And it's crazy sometimes to think of how you got there. Someone liked my photo on Instagram not even two months ago and today we're out driving an hour to go get a pumpkin. And just driving in the car with the windows open and music playing and being able to either talk about whatever or just sit there in silence taking it all in—it's all enough, and it's wonderful. Plus, I got to see some goats. So there's that.
