Today in a lovely yoga class, the teacher talked about her goal of sadhana—practicing yoga for 40 days straight. Any missed days meant having to start back again at one. That the dedication and ritual of the 40 were steps on the path to accomplishment. Hmm . . . that sounded far more granola that I thought it would be I'm sticking with it.
She inspired me to commit to 40 straight days of writing on my blog. I often have the intention of writing every day, but that never lasts more than, well, a day. So today is my first day of 40.
