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 101 - Simple Day

I am getting ready to head out to Orlando Power Yoga.  I am in a pretty easy going mood tonight.  It's always days like this that I feel like I am stretching to say something meaningful in life.  These are actually the days that I should appreciate the most.  My mind is not planning my future, it is not looking back to the future...It is just here in the now.  I do not always have something meaningful to say, and that is ok.

I am very appreciative for my life today.  I love the people who are in my life.  I love my job.  I love my horizon.  I am proud of my past.  Life is pretty sweet.

I have felt really connected with the world this week.  I really do believe that nature and the universe are sending messages to us.  It might be through nature, animals, or other people.  I feel like simple things like a flower blooming is the simplest form of communication and lessons that the universe is trying to teach us.  We need to drop our ego and listen. 

Our lives are so filled with so many distractions from these simple signs that we typically do not stop to listen to these simple signs we are constantly being fed.  I feel like we need to get rid of all of our worries and fears that really do not have meaning in our lives.  A lot of our lives are wasted trying to figure out things that we will never figure out.  Trying to find approval from others, relying on the outside world for emotional stimulus, or suppressing our feelings that we are scared of.  Some things we waste because whether we think them or not will not effect our outcome of our day.

We should spend our time listening to nature, allowing ourselves to grow, really feeling our emotions, or filling our heart with love.  Finding outlets to help you grow in this manner.  Then we can release these emotions, growing with others, and giving out our love.

Keep life simple.  The world is talking to you.

I am off to yoga.
