4:30 AM.
That's been my call time 2 (or 3, if I'm feeling ambitious!) times a week for the last few weeks. I'm not a morning person. Grunting is pretty much my language before 9 AM. So why would I be doing such a crazy thing? Yoga. 5:30 AM Hot Power Vinyasa Yoga. I never thought I'd be a crazy morning workout person, but I'm loving it. Today's yoga epiphany went a little something like this... (holding pose) this isn't so bad....I can do this...okay, this hurts...seriously, how much longer are you going to make me hold this, lady (As I swear at the yoga instructor under my breath.) Then wise words were spoken by that same lady I was swearing at. "If you're struggling, come back to the breath." And I realized this: on my yoga mat, I'm strong and I'm flexible but I'm not always focused. My mind tends to wander to what I just did or what I have to do or something random like how pretty the color of the lights are, you know, life stuff. But this was such a great metaphor for life lately. I've realized in life, I'm strong and I'm flexible but sometimes I lose focus on what I'm trying to accomplish and how capable I actually am of accomplishing it. So when life gets hard, just like in yoga, come back to you. No matter what that looks like for you. Happy Friday!
