The first of a new year and as I put one foot in front of the other, balance has become vital. My aim is to find the center of me. And since I don’t even have the grace to take my first yoga class, this could be a long process. I don’t have the means to eat, pray, and love my way through Bali or buy myself an Italian villa under a Tuscan sun. So, instead of eating gelato in the terra cotta streets of Florence, I put my Pad Thai noodles in a red ceramic bowl and closed my eyes with every bite. Fortunately, my center is within. And once I find it. Align myself with it. I can take it anywhere. Maybe even to yoga class next week.
