A to Z Primer — A Study of the World Behind Your Eyes

Day Two — Breathe

Hey, I’m back again (so soon?) for Day Two of the A to Z Challenge. As background, after much wrangling with potential themes and possibilities for decent content on a month’s worth of blogs, I settled on the one thing in my universe that needs the most work — me.

The original idea came while attending my weekly yoga class. I take yoga once a week and while the benefits are amazing, they certainly don’t last an entire week. By the time I go back the following week, it’s as if I never went in the first place. Time to shake things up, I see, so why not combine challenges?

For the entire month of April I will attempt transformation from the me who sits too much, thinks too much, eats too much stuff that’s not good for her, doesn’t sleep enough, and who is so totally invested in being a mom, wife, lawyer, and writer that she pretty much will let herself fall apart at the seams, to a glowing, nimble, peaceful person who happens to also do all those life things but respects her Self in the process. Maybe my little bit of self-improvement will add light to the sum of light out there and the angry planet we find ourselves spinning on will perhaps get a dose of much-needed equilibrium. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not on some save the world thing. I’m totally limiting my quest to my own darkness and my own light, but if the light somehow spreads, well, that would be cool, too.

 

So let’s talk about breathing. ย Read more here…

  3. Ok, now I get it. If I click on the title of the post instead of the continue reading link, then I get the whole post, plus the comments field. Still, it’s not completely intuitive. I’ll try to remember though.

      Yep, that’s it. For some reason, I can’t get comments on the actual page, only on the title post page, and I didn’t want a whole blog of just a title post page so I try to remember to click the box that says “open in a new window” so you can continue reading the post but still have the comment window open. Not intuitive at all, but thanks for hanging in there!

      • Well, your theme still beats the Chateau theme hands down. I follow a number of blogs that I really like otherwise that use the Chateau theme, and that one is so visually cluttered it drives me batty. If you find anything on my blog that bugs you or is a barrier to participation, please let me know!

        Don’t know if I know the Chateau theme. I will let you know if I see anything on your blog. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Pam, I have to admit, I don’t get how your blog theme works. I can only seem to comment and like here in the Word Press reader. If I click through to the whole post (which I want to do, so I can read it!) I don’t see where I can comment and like once I’m done reading. It’s confusing and it has prevented me from commenting more than once.
