|Ingela holding a Zoom yoga class|
I downloaded the Zoom app onto my iPad, clicked a couple of buttons and suddenly I could see her living room, along with those of others, and then I was ready to join them. Nineteen people joined the class, and I know that there is some way for the others in the group to talk with Ingela, but we didn't do that.
It worked pretty well, but I sure do miss the interaction with not only the instructor, but the others in the class as well. Nevertheless, it's the first time I've done a full yoga class since all this started a few weeks ago. I've been more than a little downhearted about our worldwide pandemic. Just getting myself up to go out for a walk has been a struggle.
I guess I really didn't want to fully accept the magnitude of the changes in my life now, and the lives of all of us to come, after this all settles down, with (hopefully) most of us still here afterwards. It's beginning to sink in, reminding me that I need to start taking better care of myself.
So Ingela reminded us all to stock up on that essential vitamin, Vitamin G, for Gratitude. I'm going to look around for things in my life that will remind me of all the wonderful and beautiful parts of the world, that are everywhere, if I just look for them.
I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought, and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder. —Gilbert K. Chesterton:-)
