It happens a lot.
Like this morning in yoga, the instructor says
From your downward dog, look up then visualize how your ardha chandrasana will be.
And voila! I’m in it. Most of my balance contained.
Or when I was shopping the other day, I thought to myself
I’m wearing a khaki-green surplus style jacket. But it’s fleece-lined, and with a hood so I stay warm.
Lo and behold –it’s there! The last one on the rack. In my size. And on sale! (For real, this happened!)
And in that quiet moment before my family wakes, I see me…
Present. Alive. Completely free.
You gotta know what you want to get it.
