Daily Cupcake #6: Short Days
The air has shifted the tiniest bit to usher in a new season. It feels good to notice. I feels like confirmation that I slow down enough in my days to soak up the natural beauty, which is what I want for my life.
I want to see how the small moments build on themselves and turn into big changes.
This time last year I was caring for a newborn and looking to regain my pre-pregnancy Pilates moves.
Each day I practice different Pilates moves.
I focus on form. If I lose form, then I stop the move, and shift to a new one, with a focus on building the strength I need.
Now a year later I easily see and feel the progress that came one quality day at a time.
Which leads me to this #DailyCupcake about Living that follows the Pilates principle of "breathing". Depending on what you need in your day you can take:
