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 180 - See what's out there

I am back in Denver to work on my mural.  I took the day off from yoga and snowboarding and gave my body the official rest that it does deserve.  Tomorrow I am going out to some new studios in Denver.  So I am taking my Friday off and going to yoga on Sunday instead.

The drive to Denver was another moment to gather my thoughts.  Today I was thinking on how much we show our insecurities or the opportunities where we are trying to grow.    For instance, I talk a bunch about the mural I am currently painting.  This particular wall space is for a newborn.  When I first heard I was doing it, my immediate fear was that it was going to be something too scary that I paint.  I will somehow make the child dysfunctional because of my art on his wall.  If you listen to people they will be telling you their locks that they are currently unlocking.  It can be something simple like a "I just got out of the shower."  or something more complex.  I wonder if someday I could awake without insecurities and just the knowledge that I am good just where I am today.  I also think these insecurities are things that make us worry.  They are not the reasons on why we do not participate in life.

I am finding more and more everyday that I am growing through so many situations.  I acknowledge the darkness in my life that helped me gain strength and made me the unique individual that I am today.  It is at our darkest moments in life where we gain the most self awareness.  It is up to us however to gather back the light and understand that our lives are not meant to be in darkness, but rather shine brighter then the morning sun.

I also had a brief mini meltdown today.  I sometimes forget who I am.  I have so many ideas that are in my brain right now.  This happens to me quite a bit.  I get tugged in several directions by my ideas, and I sometimes do not have time to live in the present and focus where I am.  Today I saw so many great opportunities right in front of me, and I wanted to pursue them all.  My excitement was a little overwhelming.  I sometimes feel lucky to be so blessed to have so many opportunities in my life, but I realize it is I that makes these things possible.  I do not pay a victim or wait for the world to come to me.  I go after the world.  Join me.  Tomorrow lets wake up and go out and see what's out there.
