I didn't find out until I got back that the final week's challege was to do Savasana for 20 mins, 5 days straight. I know that I do NOT rock the savasana in class. I'm usually one of the first ones to leave class, due to childcare responsibilities. I have gotten scolded by many a teacher on staying after practice.
I think this probably would have been a very beneficial week for me to participate in, so I am sorry that I missed out.
Having said that...I am not sorry for spending a week in Jamaica! I had never been anywhere south (past Florida~Disney) It was not only a beautiful, relaxing place, but to get to meet locals, visit the straw markets where they sell their wares and bartering prices, it was fun and informative!
Every now and then I got to check the internet on a friend's iPad and the emails that inundated my hotmail account were mostly from the LYM facebook page. I missed my Moksha family!!! I had to spend a lot of time reading back through the page, and of course catching up with the always hilarious Wendy's blog.
I really can't believe this Challenge is over! I hope that the page stays open, or that a new Moksha Sangha page opens on Facebook, so that we can all keep in touch and continue such open communication and guidance.
I have learned so much about myself, who I am, what I want, all from opening myself up to these Challenges.
I just finished reading Wendy's latest blog, and agree that a year is an awfully long time to wait for another LYM Challenge. Maybe Wendy and I will have to get together and plan some weekly challenges to keep ourselves busy!
What progress, you ask, have I made? I have begun to be a friend to myself.
