So last week I hit a landmark. The 29th anniversary of my 21st birthday ! I think I was waiting for the sky to fall in, my back to give out, my joints to seize up, and my hair to fall out, when in reality, I just got another day older.
My birthday coincided with winning a new skateboard. I haven’t been on a board in years, but earlier this year I bought a longboard, and now I’ve got another new board thanks to the facebook group SCUK (Skateboard Collecting UK). I might have to get older, but I don’t have to grow up.
Still going yoga on my own at least 3 times a week. I try to do it every weekday and give myself the weekend off, but I listen to my body, and if it doesn’t feel right that morning, then I give it a miss and don’t beat myself up about it. Sometimes I miss out because one of the cats wants to play and I end up getting a later train to work and don’t have time for a yoga session.
I just finished reading the Russell Brand book Revolution. I know he’s a bit marmite, and you either love or hate him – I like him – but regardless, the message is important, and it’s too important a message to get tied up in knots about whether you like the messenger or not. Political change for the benefit of all, and he’s looking at it from a spiritual pov. It’s definitely worth checking out. Unfortunately I don’t think either of us will live long enough to see anything close to the kind of change he advocates.
