Today is World Yoga Day! 🌎🌍🌏 I have a mostly love relationship with yoga but sometimes we're barely friends. Yoga can be trying because if you miss more than a few days in a row, you can backslide quite a bit. Miss months? Forget it, you sometimes have to start over from the beginning. Let's face it, sometimes I'm in pain, tired or my balance is completely off. The last thing I want to do is wobble around for 40 minutes. But seriously, if I actually hated yoga, I wouldn't do it.
I am really starting to appreciate the time that I have for myself, every day. Whether it's the first thing in the morning, on my lunch break or before bed. I don't have to think about my task list & what needs to be done next. I don't think about what I'm making for dinner or that I need to head to the grocery store. I don't think about bills or money. I even do my best to not think about any pain that is occurring within my body (with safety in mind of course) or how I wish I didn't have to experience it.
I just live in the 20, 40 or 60 minutes of time that I've given to myself every day. Move & breathe. Enjoy each breath. Enjoy my time before I need to get back to the everyday. I'll be honest, some days I don't feel like moving a muscle. I'd just like to make it a pyjama day. Or I'd like to get right into my work day because there's so much to do. But...I practice no matter how bad I may feel & I never regret it. You know how some days nothing goes right? Or every task that you attempt is an absolute failure? Well on those days, at least I have yoga. It's an accomplishment that I'm proud of each & every day, no matter how wobbly my poses may be.🧘🏿
Till next time,
