Something New #4 and #5

1

February 25, 2011 by Darlene McC

Yesterday I was struggling to fit in my Something New by midnight so I asked the wisdom of my friends:

And Ms Rachel Smallwood had some great ideas – my favorite (and most simple) was what lead me to #4:

#4: Drawing Simultaneously With Both Hands

Conveniently, I was out at a bar making a new friend while I was trying to decide and he had two pens and a scrap of paper.  I asked him “What should I draw?”.   He replied “What’s in your heart.”  I did:

Mirrored Hearts

It was fun, and an interesting experiment ~ I drew them as mirrors of one another, which the gentlemen assembled at the bar found very cool.  I think I’m going to try a larger, more focused (and less alcoholic) version of this experiment this weekend.

#5: None of Your Business!

And now, the unveiling of a new graphic:

 

I’ve been thinking about what I’m willing to share and drew a few lines for myself.  After all, my grandmother can read and if you don’t want someone to know something you don’t write it down.  Something New #5 was such thing; hence Billy the Bigmouth Bass here.

One thought on “Something New #4 and #5

  1. Rachel says:

    Good idea to have a personal post edit, never know who’s reading. 🙂

    OK, ideas round 2

    1 – brush your teeth with the opposite hand
    2 – take a shower in the complete dark
    3 – at some point during the night ( or day if you are brave) run up and down your stairs naked (shoes are ok, it is NY)
    4 – roast a marshmallow on the burner of your stove and make a s’more
    5 – Open the window and ask the first boy who walk by “What day is it today?” and when they reply say “damn, I thought it was christmas day, and I had a goose all picked out”
    6 – go an entire 24hrs without saying anything, not one word. written, signed, charaded ok, just no talking.
    7 – cut up an old sweater and use the sleeves to make new mittens for yourself (the cuffs become the wrist part)
    8 – #illegal# – jump a turnstile, take the train without paying. IF you get busted, just show them your unlimited card and say you were just playing…
    9 – make your own set of dice out of clay /or it’s equivalent (even the D20)
    10 – go to work in two different shoes, see if anyone notices.

    There ya have it, some ideas to ponder.

#thatmomentwhen your guided meditation series gets featured by @team_eqx 😄 🙏 . . For many years I held myself back with the belief that meditation was too "out there" for fitness and no one would get it. I'm so blessed to work on a company and with a team that's so excited for me to share my practice with them. . . #blessed #meditation #trainerlife #equinox #alignmentyoga #wellbeing #levelup . . . #Repost @team_eqx and @jordon.tatishi - - - - - - Mid- Month Meditation Check In w/ @darlene.coach . Thank you for this guided opportunity to reflect & focus on what sensations my body has been experiencing the last 2 weeks. Releasing tensions and centering my body.
#tbt to our last sunset in Thailand. I miss that magic island and all my loves from TTC. A far cry from a rainy day in Midtown Manhattan. . . Suns set, seasons change. This has been a year of transformations so far, and there's still more to come. . . Don't be afraid of change. It's our only constant. It's one of our few lifelong companions, alone with your heartbeat and your breath. You can fight it or you can embrace it ~ one leaks energy and one invites you to leave behind what isn't working. . . How have you reached towards change this year? . . . #kohphagan #progressnotperfection #changeisgood #growthmindset #anothergrowthopportunity #washyourface #thailandyoga #lunayoga #lunaalignmentyoga #lunaalignmentyogattc #ttc #yogawarrior #yogateacher

Wise words from my teacher: ・・・ For years I saw yoga as the goal, sacrificing myself on its alter. I now see yoga as magnificent tool, or actually a box of tools, aimed to help us live life in its full potential: health on all levels and acceptance on all levels, so we can experience the freedom and joy within us. ❤️ -Tal . . . #Repost @luna_alignment_yoga . . . . . . . . . . #alignmentyogattc #lunaalignmentyoga #alignment #alignmentyoga #yogateacher #yoga #yogateachertraining #yogateacherlife #yogateachertrainingthailand #yogateachertrainingcourse #innerstate #yogastudents #ytt200 #wellbeing #thailandyoga #yogathailand #kohphanganyoga #yogakohphangan #pranayamagarden #instayoga #yogateachertrainings #yogateachertrainingkohphangan
Back from a weekend in the woods by myself, feeling a sense of freedom and accomplishment. . . It's so easy in our lives to focus on the daily challenges. The lists of tasks, the unanswered texts, the emails and "shoulds". Knowing I had 30 hours that was more about the journey than the destination gave me the freedom to explore. To enjoy. To play. To just BE. . . What gives you a sense of freedom? Have you set aside some time this weekend/coming week to just BE? How will you use it? . . #gooutside #befree #outdoors #donttellmewhaticantdo #heds #hiking #camping #womenwhocamp #wildwoman #wildchild #free #bornfree #liveinthewild #livefree
Don't let Monday twist you up. . . So much about our daily lives is a matter of perspective. "Monday" does not have to be a negative! A new week is a new opportunity to be better, stronger, more resilient, and to have a greater impact on your world. . . Choose your path, don't let your let your reactiveness choose it for you. . . #getsome #alignmentyoga #yogawisdom #monday #seatedtwist #positivity #motivatedmonday
