Thanks to the Challenge, I didn’t give in to my mind today – and I am so glad.
It’s been a full year now; a year of challenge, change and stress. I’ve hidden it well, burying it under a barrage of activity trying to get back on my feet, trying to adjust. I feel the 101 challenge stirring it up so I can release it – a bit on edge, edgy energy at the wrong times and apparently with too much gusto. From the edgy energy last night, my sleep was not as sound as I would have liked, so I awoke tired, groggy and yet needing to be “on” for the day time show. So I wound up a bit too much and bit of splattered energy earned me some disapproval. The whole morning drained me, wore me out.
I did NOT want to get off my butt and go to class this evening – because of the challenge I did. I really, really needed class, even though I really, really did not want to go. It saved me; now I am that relaxed tired that comes from a good class and I bet tonight I sleep.
Today reinforces the benefit of the yoga for me and how much I missed it. It reinforces how some days the hardest part of the yoga is getting there. It reinforces belief in self, trust in the yoga and not to give up.
