I took the Harmony Slater workshop on Saturday and I felt I had to rest on Sunday. Honestly, I slept during the day on Friday and Saturday. And on Sunday I still did not feel rested enough.
So, instead of doing my practice, I went to see my family. My brother, his two boys (my nephews) and my mom and dad.
My parents are not that old, but of course they have a respectable age now (since myself I am 42). They're both in their sixties. They are active, alive, interested, up to date and open minded. My brother takes care of his boys every other week. The other time, the boys are with their mom. Yesterday, I could see it takes a lot of my brother, him raising his boys half of the time by himself. My mom and dad help him where they can. But they have a busy life themselves, they are only getting older, and my mom still has a job (my dad is retired).
My brother went out and my parents and I watched and entertained the kids. They are sweet boys, but they are a handful. They are bored easily, we have to make sure they eat and drink enough, that they are not injured during their wild play time and the oldest had to make home work. I spent all day with my family and it did not tire me. In fact, yesterday was the first day I did not sleep during the day. When I went back home in the evening, I felt energetic and happy.
Today, several times it has crossed my mind that maybe I have to go live with my parents or my brother and nephews, in order to take care of them? I was at the office, the work did not seem important to me. All I could think off was what really is important in my life. At this moment, I think it is my family. And my yoga practice. I am looking forward to it, tomorrow morning.
