Good Morning, Hope you make this Thursday beautiful….
My morning poem: Exercise, it’s not an obsession, I hope you haven’t been given that impression. Just finding a better way of living, of balancing this life, all while continuing breathing. You have to do it for yourself, don’t chase perfection, because I’ve come to the conclusion that “perfect” it doesn’t exist, it’s just an illusion.
Far from perfect as you can see, knees not up high enough, head down to low…but you know what, this shit is hard and it took me almost a month of practicing this everyday just to do finally hold a side crow. I’ll keep working until I get it better, but I’m proud of the progress I’ve made.
You have to strive everyday for a healthier way of life. It’s hard, we’re under a lot of stress to balance family, work, exercise, sex, basically to just find balance in this life, all while continuing to inhale and exhale.
I’m a real beginner at Yoga, but in the short amount of time I’ve been practicing it, I feel better. Yes, it’s very hard, but hey, so is life. All we can do is the best we can do, everyday striving to do a little better.
The breathing techniques and just being mindful of each feeling my body has, the temperature change, realizing how tense my body actually is, and then how great it feels to release that tension, even if only for a short while, it’s well worth the sore muscles you may feel the next day.
I challenge you all to simply give it a try, if I didn’t believe it worked make a healthier mind, body, and soul, I would never suggest it, I would have tried it and said, “forget this, it sucks.” But I truly love this way of living and I’m hopeful that you’ll find benefit in it as well.
Peace & love
Cause I’m not there yet, but perhaps, Soon Enuff….
