This Moment: Breathing In

Playing along with SouleMama today. In her words: {this moment} A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember. If you're inspired to do the same, leave a link to your 'moment' in the comments for all to find and see.


Taking a legs-up-the-wall-yoga-rejuvination moment for me. A reminder to all mamas to be kind to ourselves. To accept help when it's offered. To ask for help when it's needed. To appreciate all that we have around us. Hoping you all have a lovely and peaceful weekend!

  3. Just looking at that pose is enough to remind me of how good that one feels! It's also a reminder I've gone a little too long without doing it! Happy, peaceful weekend to you!

  7. I was wondering why you were doing yoga next to a painting on the floor, but then I read the caption. :)

  11. You're so right -- it's so important to be good to ourselves, for ourselves. I went to yoga yesterday and am still reaping the benefits. Great perspective.

  15. Nothing like yoga to bring yourself back to centre. I do yoga on a Monday night and it keeps me going for the week. Hope your weekend was relaxing. Jacinta
