Happy last day of August,
Yep, this month is a wrap! I feel like I woke today and August was pretty much gone! As always, I hope y’all had a grand weekend. I had the best weekend planned with 4 events – 2 on Saturday and 2 on Sunday. Well, you know what they say, “The best laid plans of mice and men often go astray.” That is exactly what happened to me over the weekend. I had outfits planned and ready for each gathering; although one event had a dress code so it was easy peasy. So I made it to the first activity which was a workout session with my favorite fitness expert. She invited me to hot yoga! Have y’all tried yoga or hot yoga? I had been to a yoga class but not like this with the room heated. I will say I was apprehensive at first. I pictured myself dripping buckets of sweat and smelling really bad. But it was so chill, not literally, and serene. The room was warm and the poses challenging, but it was a super good workout and I really liked the observance of silence. Really helped with being mindful and intentional during the class. I would definitely recommend this form of yoga.
After class, I was all set to go to the next event when a family member asked for my help which involved helping them through recuperation for the weekend. Well that changed the whole weekend, but I wasn’t upset about it. Family comes first and it is a blessing to have health – boy have I learned that, hence adding more healthy activities to my life, like yoga. So the outfits went back to the closet and I spent the rest of the weekend being a good helper. I really enjoyed my house guest, my home is peaceful and quiet and I think that’s exactly what she needed.
I made my plans to get all dolled up and do this, that and the other this weekend. But God had other plans and gave me a chance to bless someone this weekend with a willing heart and helping hands. Hey, I hadn’t planned to have a design client and a style client in 2015. But, there was another plan and I didn’t say nooo that’s on the 2016 calendar, nope was grateful for these two awesome clients and put the wheels in motion to change the plans and get to work.
There will be many more weekends with all kinds of activities and I’ll plan to partake to the fullest, but if needed, I’m open to plans changing and being wherever He needs me to be or do whatever He needs me to do.
What did you plan this weekend? How did it work out for you?
