This week I have been overcoming an injury. In the old days, that would have prevented me from doing, well , anything. I would have run to the ER , gotten pain medication and been an over emotional mess for everyone to take care of.
Not since yoga.
Now I have learned how to work with my body, to challenge all the parts of my body that are working right now. Moving staves off depression and anxiety for me. The more I believe that my body works, the less I am overwhelmed with depression.
I am grateful that I know that yoga is more than perfect poses. It is about becoming. I am becoming an athlete, strong and assured. Learning to be more grateful of this body that is aging. Growing into an elder with grace.
Reason one million and again, thank you yoga!
