My favorite Yoga routine (Grounding Down in Gratitude – Adriene) brought that missing smile!
Adriene also gave me some giggles, as I was squatting down balancing my root chakra, she said how our ancestors and people all over the world still do so much in this position – including pooping!
That comment made me giggle, almost made me fall out of my Yogi Squat, and reminded me that I take myself way too seriously all the time. It is hard to be serious when you’re still in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle PJ’s.
Being childlike is, I think, the greatest strength that anyone can have. Childlike in adoration, wonder, gratitude, and attitude. As I was in my pooping squat, I thought of my babies and was infinitely grateful for them.
It reminded me of a silly moment I had meditating. My daughter was sleeping on my floor, and I was concentrating on my breathing. She began farting up a storm. I can just imagine her face if she knew I shared that. Actually she’d laugh, because she thinks her farts are hysterical. Like Mother, like Daughter, I’d say 🙂
