Missing my beautiful lady today, it's been 2 & 1/2 months since we've seen each other. Despite the distance, I am grateful to have someone special to miss and look forward to seeing again. Who do you have in your life that you haven't seen in a while but are so very thankful that they are still here, knowing that one day you'll reconnect?

Throughout my learning as a yogi I was often taught that the goal was contentment (or at least that is what I heard). At some point I became content and that was great for a while, nothing bothered me, I just lived everyday as it was. At some point contentment fell into boredom, or simply monotony. I had to pick myself up and move toward a new goal; excitement. Eventually the excitement became ungrounded and I needed to move toward certainty. Certainty became too predictable so I then shifted toward where I am at right now. Some call it a quest for balance. My approach is to recognize that for true contentment to be constant, I must always be observing what feels good and what doesn't. Always is key because what feels good today might shift tomorrow. It's a constant look at where I am stable, changing, growing, stagnant and so on. What brings me joy? What holds me back from it. Contentment is not an end point, it is a starting point.
