The precious beau is traveling this week which has carved out some alone time that I haven’t had since I moved into his zen-like abode at the end of last year (seems so long ago already!). This is the first time we’ve been apart for more than a day.
Although I love coming home to my sweetie every night, I’m suddenly reminded of a few comforts I had while living on my own. Tonight I rolled out my yoga mat with the intention of keeping it out like a runner carpet beside my bed for the whole week. Although he is wonderfully supportive of my “yogi time”, I find it more challenging to practice when he’s here, as I prefer to be more in his presence then in another room. Now I’m back to intimate and interactive time with my yoga and mediation on a daily basis first thing in the morning as the coffee maker brews away.
Although I miss my sweetie already, I’ll take solace in this little time to myself to practice my yoga, do a little “om-ing” with my pre-bedtime mediation, and watch the sunrise from our gorgeous backyard view and contemplate the day ahead.
