I’m 7 days into this challenge. That means 7 consecutive days of yoga. The impossible is definitely becoming achievable. I imagine that the impossible is actually going to become a habit! I don’t think I’ve ever felt so good in my body as I do now. Physically I’m feeling longer, leaner and just GOOD. Emotionally I’m feeling stable and calm. Practicing yoga, especially when I don’t feel like it!, has allowed me to practice more meditation than I would normally. It’s been a good reminder to come back to this. I used to meditate 10 minutes before going to bed which I found added so much more balance to my life. Yoga is doing this for me right now!
This past week, I hit the wall. My body was trying to tell me something. I wasn’t really paying attention to this until I actually dug a bit deeper and tried to figure out what was out of balance in my life. I know that I need to cut some things out. I’m doing too much! What I REALLY needed though was some JT time. I realized that I hadn’t journalled a la solo at a coffee shop for a few weeks. I mean, I’ve been there but I had been scheduling a bunch of stuff and working on the computer. NOT the same! I felt 100 times better after enjoying a treat and a coffee, pen in hand creating dreams in my journal and just letting my mind explode it’s ideas all over the page. Now they’re on paper and my mind is able to enjoy RIGHT now a whole lot more.
If you’re noticing your life to be out of balance, what can you do to help bring it back to a more even keel?? For me, it’s time alone with my own thoughts and enjoying a cookie with a good cuppa joe. Yoga is helping me to remember. Yoga is helping bring an unbelievable amount of balance into my life. I’m loving it.
I’ll leave you with a quote that Reno left us with at the end of class (I never want his classes to end they’re so good! Reggae music, good energy and great people all practicing yoga together with one goal in mind – to feel good!)
Never doubt in your heart what you know to be true.
Smile with your heart!
And for the people out there who love coffee as much as me – here’s a picture for you I found on the wall outside of the bathroom at one of my favourites! BAHAHA!!
Have a great weekend!!!
