Yoga and my program of recovery have taught me to reach for honesty at all costs. I don't know that I always reach it every day, but I try. Yoga taught me the best way was to learn honesty in my body. I challenge both messages, my "I can" and my " I can't".
With my 108 sun salutations, I could talk my self out of doing the work. Yet I am in awe of the benefits, part of it is because I can literally manage the flow of the movement myself. The other is that I can stop and take care of me as I need to. If I need to stop and massage my feet, I do that. If I need a sip of water , I do that to. This challenge isn't about bragging about how much I can damage my body. This challenge for me is about how I can challenge my mind, soul and reach higher for my dreams.
I am loving what is happening. At night, I am falling asleep and resting all night long. My body feels warm, like my muscles are working. The sweat that runs down my face makes me feel strong. The Savasana is truly heightened into the relaxation that my anxiety filled days need.
This challenge is changing me, into more prayer, more compassion, more confidence and finally some sleep. I can't wait for Day 7! ( Want to join the challenge, click here! There is nothing to buy, no emails to gather, I just want to spread and share hope with the world and recharge my own dreams!)
