To commemorate turning 30 I held a small get together for some of the lovely ladies I know. Age is just a number, yet I was turning 30, considered a milestone by many. I decided that since I had started the New Year by deepening my yoga practice, and have endeavored to live mindfully ever since, that I should have a gettogether to reflect this. So I brainstormed and came up with an Ayurvedic/Sattvic menu. I decided that instead of serving colas I would serve Watermelon juice (Watermelons are in season). Along with this juice I decided to serve lassi. For snacks I decided to have a salad comprised of cucumbers, tomatoes, corn, broccoli, pomegranate seeds, flaxseeds, masala and a dash of lemon. Another sald had boiled beans and paneer. Another comprised of sprouts and kalle channe. Multigrain sandwiches were also served along with a fruit salad. And to finish all of this there was Green Tea. This took care of our physical well being. For entertainment I decided that instead of sitting around and chatting we should play a game to relax. The game I chose was ‘Taboo’ and I’m glad everyone took to it and participated enthusiastically. For a few hours yetserday all of us nourished our bodies and minds with good clean fun.
Once in a week its a good idea to catch up with friends and do something we enjoy. Friends keep us rooted. They remind us of who we are and what we have the potential to be. They let us know that things might go from bad to worse but they will always be there to egg us on. It’s a good idea to make room for friends in your life. Pick up the phone and connect with one you haven’t connected with in a long time TODAY!
