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?
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.
