Our friend/overnight guest arrives momentarily. I'm intent on creating a new pattern for myself: stay present in the moment and don't worry about unfinished tasks or uncleaned spaces. It feels good to relax instead of stressing out!
My afternoon T'ai Chi Chih practice was squeezed between dish washing and bed making. So, frankly, it wasn't as relaxed as it could have been. Still, any practice is better than no practice. And each moment spent moving the Chi is a wonderful healing moment.
I'm still focused on avoiding another round of cold/flu. So our guest may be surprised to find me smelling like my potion of lemon-garlic-ginger-cayenne pepper/lemon-ginger tea. At least, though, I'll be relaxed, present, and at peace.
