Sunday afternoon was a pretty lazy one for me. Except for our 15 second attempt of open water swimming, all I did was eat, nap, pick up some groceries and mold into the couch. I love lazy Sunday’s. It would have been easy to stay super comfy on the couch, but I dragged myself to yoga. I wasn’t planning on going, but when the time came for one of my favourite classes I figured I might as well go, and I’m glad I did.
After the class I was talking with a friend who said something along the lines of, “No matter how I feel before hand, I ALWAYS am glad that I came to yoga”. This definitely rings true for me as well. Not a class has ever gone by which has made me feel upset for showing up. Not a single class. I always leave feeling inspired, lighter and so glad that I went. Every time.
What makes you say, “I’m so glad I went” every time you show up? Or, “I’m so glad I did that today!”. Whatever it might be, do more of it. Do things that make you feel lighter, energized and happy that you showed up. These are the types of things that your heart craves. If you haven’t been finding yourself saying this lately, seek out something different. Look at your routine – what can you do differently? What can you do to start saying a whole lot more “I’m so glad I did it!”. It could be as simple as choosing a healthy salad at a restaurant instead of the piled high greasy burger the person at the table next to you is enjoying. Either meal you choose, you’ll feel full after – but which will make you feel GOOD?
Choose things that make you feel good! That make you want to go again and again. Once you take one step in a positive direction, everything else in your life seems to flow more easily in the same way. You might even inspire someone around you to follow along too.
Smile with your heart!
