What I Remember
These are the highlights from a 30 Day Yoga Challenge I did before I left Bali. I would briefly write my thoughts after flowing to allow me to unfold. As I look back my heart smiles, these times moved and changed me as a person. The struggles and triumphs, it was all a beautiful process.
I hope this inspires you to challenge yourself in a task you have been dreaming of, to do better in something you are working at, and to NEVER give up. Good things take time and hard work but, I promise it will come.
Take this as a form of understanding, that you and I, her and him, WE, are all going through life together. So lets stay inspired and do good, feel good so we can make this world a better place.
Day 5: May 20, 2019
It was hard for me to come to my mat, I was tired and lazy. I unrolled it and got into downward facing dog. As soon as I closed my eyes I knew it was a good choice to do this, it always was. Time and space for the self to relax and be.
Day 6: May 21, 2019
As I found silence in nature I was eager to flow. My movement was inspired by the perfect essence of calmness and power. I finally felt like me, it was so good to have no one around and be perfectly okay.
Day 15: May 30, 2019
I felt strong, pushing myself to hold poses longer and deeper. I played in the dark with a candle at my feet. I felt beautiful and free.
Day 18: June 2, 2019
I was eager to get on my mat. All I wanted to do was close my eyes and feel. Feel my body and mind, and dance it out. Long breaths guided my movement as I flowed to music that made me feel so alive. This was a beautiful practice, creative, thoughtful, and free.
Day 21: June 5, 2019
Another hard day, but I did it. I showed up and I DID IT! I haven't gave up. Even though I don't always want to, it's always a good choice. Some effort > no effort.
Day 22: June 6, 2019
Today was inspiring. I let it all go, broke down the walls and ran free. Moving, feeling, being, simply me. The most astonishing thing there is.
Day 28: June 12, 2019
You know, I realized today that this whole "challenge" was really to prove to myself that I could do it. Commit to something and show up everyday. No matter what, I did it and I am SO proud of that. Already ahead of the me last month who wouldn't take 5 minutes a day to sit and breath in peace.
These thoughts are to remind you that ANY amount of progress is better than none! That is what I would tell myself over and over again as I would count the excuses for why I should be lazy.
Then I realized that even just 10 minutes of conscious movement and stillness was way better than 10 minutes of sitting and doing nothing.
PRAISE yourself! You deserve to feel good :)
