Wise Words

On Thursdays I go to a prenatal yoga class and our doula/yoga instructor was in a particularly good mood today. This morning she got to see the Dalai Lama speak at San Diego State University. She said though he was hard to understand, he had an amazing presence and was suprisingly funny. The main takeaway for her was - calm mind, calm body. If we can learn to calm our minds and take every action from a place of kindness we'll be in a much more peaceful state.

I know this is a very simple concept but its a great reminder. Looming over me right now is this client meeting in New York, 6 hour flight on Monday, meeting is on Tuesday and 6 hours back Wednesday. I tend to look at the negative - will I feel okay? Will the client meeting go well? When I just need to stay calm, do my best and look forward to the reward of a dinner in Manhattan with my brother once the dreaded meeting is over. Wish me luck!
