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 107 - Third to First
Today was the Dharma class with Greg Duke at Orlando Power Yoga.
With the holiday season pretty much here I am trying to manage my time. I juggle a lot during the holidays. Family, work, shopping, things get put on the plate and I often put myself aside to allow room for the "important" things in life. How do I find the time to do what our own self needs? Why do I find it necessary to put ourselves on hold? Below is a list of the things I want to keep in my mind while going into these holiday seasons.
Stop and Give to Me: This is the time of giving, but first I am going to take the time to give to me. I will find that moment to breath, do yoga, exercise, paint, journal, walk in the woods. Something that is done totally for me. If I have the balance and the peace I will be able to give back to the world that much more.
Focus on the Focus: I have been using this a lot in work lately. My mind can get scattered quite a bit as it tries to do more then it can. I need to find the things that are important this holiday season and keep focus on these things.
Accept: Accept that I cannot control the world. Accept the others around me. Accept that I am human. I get so worked up when the world does not go as planned. I am taking this opportunity to let the world turn the way it wants to and concentrate on the direction I want to turn in the world.
Give to Give: I am looking forward to a plan that I have to give back to the universe this season. I want to continue to give to the world concentrating on the focus of "not asking for anything in return."
I wanted to stay true to this blog. This is an opportunity to blog about my growth over this year because of yoga. If I kept this particular blog in third person I feel like I was trying to feel comfortable about my decisions I am making for this holiday season. How often do we use the words like "we" or "you" when we really mean "I"
