One week into this challenge and I'm feeling good. Today I woke up feeling not so good. My cramps were horrible, I was tired. But some quality time on the mat set me straight. I don't mean to sound so blasé about it, but it's the truth. The mat always has my back, and I become a better person to be around when I make myself and my yoga practice a priority.
It is also helping me think more clearly. I love the phrase, "Create a life you don't want to escape from." My daily yoga practice is getting me closer and closer to that goal. I have a lot to be grateful for: a supportive family and husband, good friends around the world, a vision, and an adequate amount of talent to help turn my dreams into reality. I am also restless. Like Alexander Hamilton (a fellow Capricorn), I will never be satisfied. So knowing this about myself allows some grace to enter to my life.
What is your yoga practice teaching you about yourself?
