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 136 - Annoyed


I have to admit I am annoyed with the world today.  It is official.  I try my best to pretend that I am not, but we all know in reality sometimes it all gets to you.  I can sit here and type something positive and pretend I am OK, but my promise was to keep my emotions real.  I always feel more embarrassed when I am having these "not good" days.  I have had a history that we shouldn't feel this way.  The reality of this planet is it is not all positive.  The weight of the world can drag me down. 

Today I was in a hot class at Orlando Power Yoga.  When I do yoga 6 days a week there are days that I really do not feel like listening that everything is great, the world is happy, blah blah blah.   I am not really feeling depressed or sad today.  I actually felt physically strong during class today.  I think I am more mentally drained.  I think I am just seeing a lot of negative things happening and I latch on to them. 

I am looking a bit more today into why I think I am over sensitive to negative energy.  Maybe we all are.  I was told recently that I hold on to things, and have trouble letting go of it.  I am finding out recently that when I am in the midst of negative energy I try to redirect it and make a positive spin on it.   I feel like negative energy likes to try to leach on to me, and eventually it might drag me down.  The more negative things that surround me the more I try to make light of the situation and the more it latches on to me.   It is draining.

The perfect answer would be avoid negative situations, but come on.  There are people out there that try to ignore the negative world.  They hide out an an island or they surround themselves with "only" positive people.  The second these people are introduced to a negative situation they fall apart.  Their community of positiveness crumbles.  This is not reality.

Reality is we all feel like this at points in our life.  I do not feel my "in a funk, depressed" mood.  I am just drained.  I know the true answer on this is just wait, rest, and allow myself to be drained.  This will soon pass.  There are a lot of days in my life when I start to feel I "should not" feel these types of negative emotions.  These are a part of our lives.  All emotions pass.  The thing I am working on is letting them go, allowing them to pass, and being me :)
