ordinary feats

"This is my practice. It is not anything special you need to learn. It is not some new information you need to get. It is nothing you haven't heard before. It is just a turn you might not yet have made, or made again, and again, and again. A turn toward intimate engagement with the life you already have.

The instructions are in your hands. And when you follow them, you arrive clear and fresh - free of heartache, failure, fear, anger, and judgement - into a ready made life of deep peace and genuine satisfaction. Fulfillment derives not from lofty achievements, but from ordinary feats. It arrives not once in a lifetime, but every moment of the livelong day." ~ Karen Maezen Miller, Hand Wash Cold

I just finished this book today and I highly recommend it. It's a quick yet deeply satisfying book at only 169 pages. The subtitle "care instructions for an ordinary life" and book content in general speaks to my cute and restless self. :)

PS - This time in exactly three weeks I'll be meeting new students from across the US and greeting students from KY at our yoga retreat to Tulum, Mexico! And enjoying that beautiful Caribbean water. :)
