August Breaking Point --Saying No

First off I'd like to say thank you to all the bloggers participating in  the August Break that have stopped by and said "Hi" here on my little piece of the internet.  My hope is that some day I'll have some free time to stop by and check out your web homes too.

As I predicted in a previous post, my last three weeks are have been non-stop, and in reality I don't see much changing for a little while. I've been trying to roll with things, but I can tell stress has gotten to me to a certain degree. Sometimes you just reach a point where you have to say "no," even to the things you enjoy...really enjoy.

Last night normally is a yoga night for me, but instead I said no. Instead I opted to stay home and spend some of the time in the garden, ridding it of some of the weeds that are cluttering the space and stealing the soil nutrients from my veggie plants.  I've always found weeding cathartic.  ;)  It felt ten times more benefiical to my well being to take care of this little plot of ground and harvest some of its' goodness than doing a few asanas.

I will nourish the garden which nourishes me.... figuratively and literally.


Squash anyone?

Your garden looks very bounteous. What a great post. If what we're supposed to do won't make us as happy as what we want to do we can change our plans.
