What is Yoga 308
Life is a constant struggle of balancing our body on both a physical and emotional side. Through yoga I have learned several life lessons. Yoga 308 is a goal I set for myself to do at least 60 minutes of yoga for 6 days a week for the next year. I invite anyone to join me on this adventure as I blog about some of my daily experiences. This is not intended to show that I have found peace and tranquility, but rather give my honest feelings of my journey. Enjoy.

Day 28 - Reflection
Today was my day off. I spent the day relaxing and catching up on things that I wanted to do. I got some painting done which gave me some reflection time. Painting for me is a time where I can let my mind go and focus on one thing. It is another one of my outlets that allows me to relax and express myself.
I looked back at the last 28 days. They have flown by. I have been having so much fun I have not been able to stop and look back at the past month. I have learned so much. My life feels extremely balanced today. I feel like I could hold tree pose all day today. With this type of balance I feel like I can reflect more on my life.
I am very grateful for everyone in my life. I am feeling a lot of love today. There is a feeling of simplicity in the air today. There are so many areas in life that can get complicated I am grateful for this simple day. I start to wonder if the outside world is what complicates life or if it is my mind that cause the complication. Is it the people that are simple in my life or do I bring the simplicity into my world? The more I sit and think about it, what is it that takes a simple day like today and complicates it?
There are so many soul suckers in this world. I have had a pretty good tradition of seeking them out in my past. I use to seek them to show a life that is simple. Soul suckers typically cannot see a simple life. As life continues on I seem to have less and less of these soul suckers in my life. I am trying to keep my life in check by keeping good positive people in my life. People who are not afraid to be themselves, not afraid of who I am, and have growing souls that can grow with me not against me.
I am realistic about this world. The world is complicated. There are always going to be moments of complications. Life is complicated, but we can keep our life as simple as what is in our mind. Find peace in your heart and find moments to ensure that it stays there. For the people who have brought simplicity and kept simplicity in my life I thank you today. Keep the love and the simplicity in your heart and in your life.
I send out a little prayer at the end of each one of my yoga sessions. It is my silent time to thank these moments that I hold true in my heart.
Keep life simple! Much Love!.
