My super freakin’ awesome Thursday

Days come and go and most of the time I have no clue if today is Wednesday or Saturday. I definitely know when it’s Sunday because that is the day that my cook doesn’t come to work. Today is Thursday. It doesn’t matter to me. The sun rises and sets and it’s a day.

What was so awesome?

I didn’t do anything especially different. I did what I do most Thursdays: yoga, lunch, bit of work (today I went swimming instead), dinner and nighttime.

But today was different.

I walked with a lightness and spark. I indulged in every experience I had, whether it was watching a bird or feeling the cool water of the pool. Every movement and sound my children made was music to my ears. Every step I took on the way to yoga was filled with contentment. I walked with a smile on my face the entire way. Seriously. And despite a physically intense yoga practice, I felt light as a feather. The day flowed with ease and enjoyment.

I was in nirvana.

The only nirvana I’ve known was a popular band during my college years, so I had to look up the actual definition.

  • A transcendent state in which there is neither suffering, desire, nor sense of self, and the subject is released from the effects of karma and samsara. It represents the final goal of Buddhism
  • Liberation of the soul from the effects of karma and from bodily existence
  • A state of perfect happiness; an ideal or idyllic place

I don’t want to ruin the rhythm of this day, so I’ll just show you pictures.

I was grateful for all of this today…

What simple things are you grateful for today?
