Day #7 Writing as Yoga Experience
A journey for Clarity and a better understanding of the self…
I know about this oh so well. It has been a busy, whirlwind of a day and I realized just before midnight that I hadn’t done my journaling for todays topic, “Distractions”.

I see this comes up in many areas of my life. When I attempt to cook, I forget and get distracted and then randomly remember once it’s too late and the oven has caught on FIRE! <—TRUE STORY
I will be working on something, let’s say for example the New Moon Report, then get distracted with another thing, an email I forgot to answer, a phone call, a chart reading, an astrology book, another project I am working on, a habitual FaceBook check, a text message….YOU NAME IT!
