So I have totally found a new thing I love to do. It’s not something I have done before and I’m not sure where it came from, but I have discovered that I love to doodle on my feet.
Okay, doodle might be a bit of a stretch. I am currently ‘working’ the May Cause Miracles book by Gabrielle Bernstein. The reason I say working and not reading is because it’s a 1-a-day book where you have a morning meditation and intention setting and an evening reflection and meditation with some reading squeezed in in between. Any who…I digress. So I am working this book and find myself sitting crossed legged a lot and looking at my feet a ton in yoga. Meditation ~ Yoga ~ Feet ~ Doodle! Right? I’ve lost you haven’t I? So here’s the thing, I’m not doodling per say and there is no henna involved, but what I am doing is writing my intention down on the inside of my foot and ankle. And it’s made a crazy big difference for me. It’s kept the intention alive. Which is really all that matters. It’s become a structure for me to keep the book alive throughout my day. It reminds me of times that I have said “tomorrow I am going to eat better” and then tomorrow comes and I half asleep make a coffee and some toast, sit down and eat, made a half decent lunch (always good, but rarely great), sit down and eat and then shout, “SHIT – I FORGOT, I was going to start eating better today!” What went wrong? I had no structure in place. A reminder of the ‘why’ I was doing it was missing. So I’d love to hear something you want to do and a structure that could support you in getting it. Be creative. Doodling on my feet certainly wasn’t on my agenda, but now that it is, it’s working like crazy!
