It’s a new year, a new day, and a new 30-day yoga challenge by Yoga With Adriene is here. I’ve tried to complete Adriene’s challenges several times over the years but last year was my first time actually succeeding. Blogging about it each day REALY helped me hold myself accountable, so we’re doing that again. Welcome to the new challenge, y’all! (I’m amped.) Oh, I got a little crafty and created several graphics to accompany the posts — juu liiike it? The illustration is based off of lerarelart’s on 123rf.com.
I don’t have much to say tonight, honestly… It’s Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day, so, yay! (I guess.) What do people even do on this day? I’ll look it up or maybe I’ll just start my own tradition next year. Like, maybe I’ll read something from MLK and have a deeper conversation about it with someone. Like an exchange of knowledge type of thing. You know, as I get older, I find myself wanting to know more about Black American leaders.
I mean, I know the basics about them but I want to be the type of person who knows more. I want to be able to speak more confidently on our leaders and historical moments. I’m not sure how that quest is going to go, though. I’m the type of person who won’t remember the date that something happened on or all of the key players — but I will remember how the event impacted others, so that’s something. I’ll also remember how learning about it made me feel; I’m definitely a feelings type of person.
