Happy Monday, everyone!
I’ve received a lot of concerned messages from family and friends over the past few days who’ve been worried because of tropical storm Darby. Since we’re from South Carolina and Florida, it takes a lot more than a tropical storm to get us down! Honestly, when the storm was supposed to be at its closest to us, we saw a period of sunshine that was brighter than anything we’d seen in days! Additionally, Sunday really didn’t seem usually windy for where we live. Other than the surf size, it mostly felt like a typical rainy weekend…until weirdly, after sunset, there was about an hour and a half (ish) thunderstorm. We had couple of power flickers, but they were so sort electronics on surge protectors didn’t even cut out. It was like “Ah! Here’s the weather we were waiting for!” Some roads were closed for a while due to flooding on the other side of the island, and a bit of asphalt slid into the ocean on our side, but I’m not aware of any major damage.
The rain actually worked out pretty well for us. My husband is on a CrossFit competition team with two ladies from our gym and another guy from a different gym. I’m actually not doing this one, so it’s a role reversal from May when I was competing and he wasn’t! The competition has an “online qualifier” where you have to do three workouts and submit videos to see if you make it to the actual competition. They did the first workout (I was the camera girl!), and then ended up having to replace the fourth team member. They kept scheduling workouts around his schedule, but then he would be very late. After the third time this happened, they found someone else to take his place. This meant they had to re-do workout #1 and then also do 2 & 3 in a short period of time before the submission deadline. If the weather had been nice, we would have been bummed about missing out on hiking, photography, rock climbing, etc. Since it was raining, hanging out at the gym all weekend was fine!
Anyway, this is titled as a Motivational Monday post, so let’s get to the motivational part! It’s been forever since I made a motivational Monday printable, so creating this was fun.
I really like this quotation because it’s very aligned with yogic philosophy. =)
I hope you enjoy and, as always, it’s available as a high-res 8×10 printable for blog subscribers!
How was your weekend? Lots of rain? Or high summer temps?
