Even though I'm so happy to have my kitties back, I still cry everyday over the ones I lost, and what I put them through. I'm always going to feel sad, and wonder how the others are doing. And I'm definitely carrying a large amount of guilt. I'm trying to balance that sadness with gratitude for what I do have. It's definitely tricky. Anyway, yesterday I came across this yoga video, and believe it or not, it brought some genuine relief. I felt calmer, and freer after doing it. She has two mantras at the end that really touched my heart. As a matter of fact, they are both on Post-It notes on my bathroom mirror. This channel, and also Fightmaster Yoga are my two favorite yoga channels on YouTube. They both have very soothing. comforting ways about them.
Onto better news, I made it on a bus, to a store, back on a bus and home without getting lost yesterday! Woot woot, I have arrived. I was attempting another trip to Sprouts and or Natural Grocers to bulk up, but while I was on the bus I noticed a Smith's, so I went there since I needed odds and ends like condiments, aluminum foil, potato peeler that kind of stuff. Smith's here is what Fred Meyer is to Seattle. Both owned by Kroger which I remember in the Midwest. Aren't corporations weird? Anyway, the Smith's I went to is a superstore, so it was huge, and super overwhelming. I don't like superstores. Maybe I'm weird, but I do want to buy my food and my clothes at different places. I don't want to get lost looking for mustard, and end up in ladies leisurewear. But regardless, I got some staples that I needed, so it was a success.
