Do This For Good Luck!
Updated: Jan 2
Eating black-eyed peas on New Year's Day brings good luck in the new year. When served with greens (collards, mustard or turnip), black-eyed peas represent coins and greens represent paper money. Adding a shiny coin to the pot just before serving is another fun tradition some keep. When served, the person whose bowl contains the coin receives the best luck for the New Year, unless of course, the recipient swallows the coin, that would be bad luck. Make sure to use a big coin, like a silver dollar!⠀
Well, clearly the world forgot to eat their veggies NYD 2020, but not this year!
As I write, Josh is making a big batch of BEPs, cabbage with bacon ( his Kennett, Missouri tradition ) and serving with a heavy pour of Prosecco. We aren't taking any chances!
Now don't get me wrong, I'm not just gonna leave my year up to the black eyed peas and Prosecco's protection, I'm definitely making plans, and placing myself and my family high on the priority list. One of the things I got a head start on was changing accountants, because financial peace is a form of self care. I've also made new budgets that plan for now and for the future. I've been inspired by fellow artistic types on Instagram that believe in abundance, and that a dream with a plan comes true. I've booked well appointments with my eastern and western physicians, because health and wellness should be a conversation. Last but definitely not least, I'm teaching and taking a lot more yoga in 2021. I've already booked my online and live classes through the Mindbody app to ensure I show up for myself, not just for others. If there's anything that 2020 produced, it was a wide variety of online self care opportunities that don't break the bank, or even have you leaving the abode.
Tomorrow is our first in person class of 2021. Because Super Yoga Palace has important safety protocols in place, including social distancing, limiting our space to 10 students, our class is now sold out - however, you can still access it online. Online is like being in person, but in your own home. All you have to do is register from the Mindbody app, and you'll be sent a link to your email ( don't be putting any phony ones in there ) to log in when the class begins. Here's a quick tutorial. When the class goes live, the teacher will put a playlist in the chat, should you choose to flow along. The class will not be recorded, and you will not be seen, but you will see the instructor and everyone else practicing at SYP. If you'd like to join us from where you are, click here.
Here's to you and your self care.
Here's to getting our in person practice back.
Here's to forever choosing to love the life you choose.
Happy New Year Friends!
