Every day, I do my YOGA usually to start NEW DAY.
To focus on how I feel my body today and breathing is my essential part of my life when I started to YOGA about 12 years ago.
Now, for me, YOGA is my part of life and it tells me how to live by using my body and mind properly.
If you don't feel clear without brushing teeth, I would feel same way without my YOGA TIME every morning.
Every day, my body is different from yesterday and YOGA tells me how I feel today.
And after my YOGA time, I can feel clear inside and outside of my body.
After YOGA time, I usually meditate about 20 minutes and I can concentrate my breath with calm & peaceful condition.
Sometimes my body can not feel comfortable but after YOGA, I can feel much better my body than before.
Also YOGA has big influence with my mind not only for body.
Because YOGA can facilitate my stable & calm breath naturally and my inside of silence can make me feel peace.
How wonderful YOGA is!!
I really appreciate with YOGA itself because it can guide my life for better & right way as I wish.
And YOGA has great wisdom how to live in this world, so I love YOGA so much in my life and I want to share with it from now on.^^
This week is coming "Thanksgiving" on Thursday.
And from last Sunday, the holiday week has already started in Seattle.
Many people look to forward to having Thanksgiving day with shopping & fun to get ready.
Already some people started to spend holidays in this week.
David & I are going to join his elder brother's home to join "Thanksgiving party" on Thursday.
There will be about 14 participants there and I am looking forward to sharing with all of them 2 days later.
Today I have to get ready for our "Thanksgiving party" by cooking something to bring my salad for all participants.
And I also have so many things to do today.
But I started to do my YOGA practice as usual and I felt nice feeling inside of myself.
To create my mind & body by YOGA can start my TODAY to concentrate what I really need to.
And I could finish everything I have to do today and I could feel so much satisfaction with my completion to get ready for Thanksgiving today.
I almost forgot to eat my fruits for lunch snack because I concentrated too much to forget my appetite.
But I am very happy to finish my task today.
And I need to take a rest with organic apple & dried figs to get some energy of fruits in this afternoon soon!
Last night, I could sleep so deeply enough and I could wake up earlier in this morning than usual.
Because I could eat a little more solid foods last night than day before.
So my body could feel so much energy of food and my internal organs started to adjust to take in my body.
I ate some foods on the end of 1 day DETOX, so my internal organs seemed to need taking a rest by sleeping well.
The amount of foods which I could ate last night was not so much than usual my eating meals.
So only short time could give me sleeping time with concentration anyway.
After 1 day Detox, my next 1 week is my recovery period to adjust my eating style again.
So I am very carefully what & how to eat day by day.
Anyway 1 week Detox gave me so much realization of myself and difference to be better myself in my life.
This timing was completely right and BEST for me.
I just appreciate with all of DAVID's support & LOVE every day.
And I want to use my better energy to circulate our LOVE each other as usual as we are...^^
Anyway, I LOVE DETOX!
Not only my body but also mind change myself inside with benevolence & pureness.
Just I can feel in inner of my something somehow...,thank you sooooooooooooo much for everything!!.
Today, it became hot weather with blue sky & sunshine without clouds in the sky.
The sunshine let David & I give enough sunshine and we feel that real summer season has come today.
We went to a library today by his car and we found a man who was laying down on the grass outside of parking of hamburger shop.
From his car, we found him and he looked sleeping on the grass.
We guessed if he was alive or not because it is too hot to lay down outside today.
But we passed by his side by David's car by just looking.
David told me, "Maybe he ate too much hamburger to walk."
After we came back to home from the library, we couldn't find the man on the grass anymore.
So we felt relieved that he was not died there anyway.
Today it is too hot so the man became crazy because of hot weather, we guessed.
Today's weather let us feel the summer but I wish that it will not be hotter from now on than today anymore.
But David's looks enjoying this summer with sunshine & blue sky more than me.
Last week, my friend in Japan sent me some massage after for a while.
We met my original detox program at Nagoya in Japan for the first time.
We are exactly same age and we became nice friends each other.
And she wanted to learn YOGA more and I recommend my teacher's lecture.
She followed my advice and she keep learning YOGA in Japan.
She wanted to know some information about YOGA study tour in Thailand and Vipassana meditation course which I had before in Thailand.
So I sent my reply to her as soon as possible to support her.
We sent some messages and she will have some solution by herself.
I am glad that my message will help her at least and I hope that she will enjoy her study about YOGA and meditation as her own pace from now on.
Even we are living at different country, I am very happy that our friendship can connect still now.
I wish that her life will be happier and happier more and more with YOGA and meditation from now on...^^
Today is 15th of July.
It means that July has already passed the half of this month, it is so fast!!
Recently it is very nice weather with blue sky but the temperature is not so high.
So I felt so nice feeling the nice weather without too much high temperature.
Already it is the middle of July but I don't feel summer by recent weather.
In the morning and the night, we can feel cool outside.
Anyway I can feel nice these days with nice weather.
I am not good at summer because it is too hot for me.
This year, the summer looks not so hot in Seattle.
So I am so good to feel the mild weather these days.
But David looks to want swimming in the pool in his holidays.
It is not enough for him to swim in the pool so I hope that it will be a little hotter only for his holiday...is it too selfish of my wish?
Recently we started to meditate in the morning to start a new day.
And then we do YOGA for us together.
For David, YOGA is the first experience when I taught Japanese ladies it in JAPAN.
David suddenly started to join my YOGA class spontaneously and he enjoyed it together.
After I started to live in Seattle, I did my YOGA every day during his coffee time.
And he didn't join my YOGA last year at all.
But recently he started to join my YOGA time suddenly and after YOGA he could feel so nice energy inside.
Also his body could feel so much comfortable senses after YOGA and he keeps to do YOGA every morning as much as possible.
Yesterday he had no time to do YOGA because he had an appointment to see his friend.
And he looked busy and he jumped to go outside to see him.
After he came back to home, he didn't do his YOGA yesterday.
But today he started to do YOGA again as usual he could feel the differences between yesterday & today.
With YOGA or without YOGA is only his choice to do.
And I didn't push my YOGA to him at all but he is learning how different he can feel after YOGA.
His body can tell his mind & heart to keep YOGA as his comfortable feeling.
And I wish he become to like YOGA as I do because I already gave our YOGA MATS 2 years ago when he want to start YOGA someday.
Anyway YOGA is wonderful tool to enrich our life, FOR SURE!
YOGA is not only a tool & exercise but also way to living to guide me how to live on this earth!
And I love my life with YOGA and I am very proud of David's effort to start YOGA as his own pace, anyway...
David, I and his friend had a great time together on last Saturday & Sunday.
Yesterday David & he woke up early in the morning and took a nice coffee time together at neighbor cafe and I wanted to stay at his home alone to do my YOGA as usual at his home alone.
About 1 hour of their coffee time, they came back to his home and David's friend took us to his YOGA studio "Zenality YOGA" to join the morning class in Sunday for the first time.
He introduced us his YOGA studio & his YOGA teacher through Facbook before and we are very interested in it.
Finally we could join the YOGA class together.
But for David, this is the first class in the U.S.A. to do YOGA in his life.
In Japan, he joined to my YOGA class in JAPAN and it was very easy YOGA just for relaxation of my DETOX program.
Yesterday, his friend's YOGA class was too hard to follow all flow of YOGA but he tried to do his best.
He was doing YOGA so hard that I was very proud of him not to give up in the middle of YOGA session.
After YOGA class, he felt so much fatigue & less energy that he looked no to drive a car to our home before noon.
But David's energy to recover little by little and we could come back to home safely before dark.
And we could have a nice time together to have dinner at home and we enjoyed his birthday's trip for last 3 days.
We are really grateful for David's great friends at Portland in Oregon that we could feel very much energy inside of heart & mind still today...
Wonderful friends and YOGA can feel us enrich our life with Blessing & happiness to live in this world...^^
To visit Astoria, to meet his closer friend at Oregon and to do YOGA together let us feel so much energy that we can enjoy today, too.
And today is the extra day of February and it seems to the gift from GOD to enjoy today.
The end of February looks like the end of winter to welcome spring in March from tomorrow.
After our trip last weekend, we can feel the change of season and focus on our new begging of life anyway.
We keep our habit of meditation in every morning to start our THIS DAY and it is essential part of our life now!
And now we are focusing on what we really want to do in our marriage life together and it is very pleasure day by day.
To visualize our goal in each mind clearly and to believe in self to make our hope happen early future are our way of life.
Without worry, doubt and any negative ways of thinking, we just keep moving forward day by day...
Anyway I wish that every friend in this world can survive each life as one wants & needs every single day.
Because life is too short to look it back and I want to cherish each day with gratitude & benevolence for everything around us now!!^^
Today I woke up early as usual but my body doesn't feel better than before.
I started to meditate for my TODAY with David but my body doesn't feel something different from usual myself.
And I decided to let myself be slower than usual without doing too much for me.
I usually want to do something more & better than before and I sometimes forget to take a rest.
Then my body & mind became tired after my whole energy burn out and I realized how I needed to take myself a rest more.
I did my YOGA as usual routine but I tried to do more carefully than my daily one.
And I could feel much better after my YOGA and I tried to let myself use lower gear than usual.
I don't want David to worry about me too much and I need to control my energy not to use too much.
And my body & mind tend to make in haste but it is not good for myself at all.
David watches & cares for me so much and maybe he can understand me more than myself.
And I trust his way of looking at myself these days and I want to grow up more & better than before not to make him worry about me too much anymore.
I am doing my best and today is the day before David's birthday.
I got a nice present and it is delivered today before his birthday fortunately.
So I hope that he will enjoy my birthday present for me later.
And just I want to be myself as I am today slowly....
To do my best is my way of living every day but my best is changing every single day so I need to adjust myself as I am today.
I am learning how I can adjust myself day by day and David's love is so helpful for me and I really appreciate with his kindness & generosity.^^
I wish that he will finish his final day of his age today to start his new age from tomorrow as he is...
With his existence, I can feel happiness & content with myself and just I am thankful his birth in this world every day, not only his birthday...
See you again...Thank you so much‼
