will box for bliss


can you stand these gloves? just ordered them. have been toying with returning to a class ever since i showed up in my silver pumas and kickboxed with a dear friend a few months ago. such fun, such a workout, and made me feel super-tough. then i came across these PINK gloves and i've been thinking about them daily ever since. so tonight i stopped into a nearby boxing gym after a tranquil space foundation meeting, got the scoop, ordered my gloves, and look forward to hitting a class next week. i kept saying to the people assisting the "odd girl with sparkly eyeshadow and lots of questions" (ok, that was MY interpretation of what they were thinking), "i'm so excited to take class - i found these really great pink gloves!" the buff guy was like, "um, that's great - get the 12 oz ones." poor thing - has no idea what he's in for!

my macbook air decided to take a break from offering moi a working hard drive so i've felt a bit displaced today. using one of beau's old laptops while mine is serviced and don't have access to all my e-mails, documents, files, etc. random e-mails trickle in through a gmail account he set up, but i'm not a gmail girl and the whole thread thing throws moi for a loop. i miss my beloved macbook air. i will gratefully await its return with a working hard drive on friday! despite my best laid plans, these technological delays set back my long list of to-dos but tomorrow is a new day. isn't that what scarlett o'hara said?

my focus continues to be on spaciousness and i'm consciously seeking it on a daily basis. i love this notion of staying attune to a word that resonates. makes for a great mantra. alas, maybe i'll find it while boxing in my new pink gloves!

Kimberly,
Sorry for the delay, but as I had promised, here is the link for the original "one little word" idea:

Also, here's my posting on the word I chose, baby steps:

Glad your word is keeping you focused. Keep writing in the planner pad!!

Glad to hear that I'm not the only one having problems with my beloved Macbook... my screen decided to go blank on me this week while the rest of the system is still working, so thankfully I was able to project my computer on the TV screen and didn't lose anything! I can definitely sympathize not having all your files, emails, etc. at hand. Then, a friend of mine decided to give me her external hard drive to back things up before getting it serviced :) gotta love nice and generous surprises like that! Hope your Macbook Air is as good as new when you get it back tomorrow.

I love the idea that the color pink inspires exercise. I wonder if more people would consider yoga if they were given a pink yoga mat.
