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 195 - Do things

I really enjoyed my day off from yoga today.  I decided since I felt like I was run down yesterday that today would be a good time to take off, try to recover my body and mind, and continue on today.  I spent most my day up with my friends Mike and Meg talking about ideas, playing board games with their kids, throwing the tennis ball with the dog, and philosophizing about life.

One thing I keep thinking about lately is the amount of discipline I have been having in my life.  I am looking at life a lot differently these days.  I feel like the drama of life is all around me, but when it surrounds me I use it as an opportunity to grow.  I also am noticing a lot of my feelings and insecurities I am actually projecting onto other people.  These are small things, but I also see so many people do this around me.  If someone is constantly talking to me about how they have been really good and have been sober for the last 8 days typically this person is either not sober or has some type of security issue with in their life.  I often wonder if I can live in a life and have no insecurities.  Where do these come from?  How do they sometimes jut fade away.  If I am secure about everything am I just then an arrogant human being?

I was thinking about how healthy I feel lately.  I do not have the typical drugs and alcohol controlling my life,  I am working on feeling good about what I eat and showing compassion to all living beings,  My addictive personality is still around, but I embrace it shifting towards more healthy things (in my mind) like painting, yoga, and traveling.  I have a thriving business that me and my business partner started from the ground up.

I have been very accepting that I deserve this life.  We all have choices in our life.  It is up to me to do what I do.  I do not blame or rely on others to get me where I need to go.  I appreciate everything that my family, friends, and loved ones have done for me.  I think ultimately life's choices and struggles may be as simply changed by getting out there and doing something.   Find passion, find love, find growing opportunity, find determination, find discipline, but most of all get out there and DO all these things.

You know what a healthy life consists of.   When you find love in you, love will grow, love will surround you, and you will be love.
