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 232 - Stay Content

Aura Reading done in Sedona

Today I went to Full Circle yoga for a Flow 1 class with Christine Northcote.  I have been feeling like myself lately.  I have felt really good today.  I appreciate Full Circle, Orlando Power Yoga, and my yoga instructors.  Maybe the Bikram classes were a reminder of how much I appreciate these people and other studios in my life.

I talked a bit yesterday about dropping the "shoulds" in our lives.  I really did feel in the moment all day today.  I felt like I was doing exactly what I should be doing.  I felt a whole today.  I am not saying I had a dramatic breakthrough, but I will take a day like this.  I feel really good.  I "should" live in the moment more often.

Life is full of challenges and wonders.  There are so many things we can do in this life.  I feel like our society places so much importance on finding happiness if we find the right person, get the right job, make more money, travel to far off lands, or become someone new.  These are some of my "should's".  These keep me out of the moment.  The truth is I have the right people in my life I have the right job, I make the right amount of money, I travel to far off lands, and I become someone new every day.  This has nothing to do with my happiness.

Happiness is a state of living in the moment.  Happiness is not a constant state.  It comes and and it goes.  I can be happy with my job one day and hate it the next.  I can feel stressed out about my income versus my spending or I can feel content with what I have.   I am looking to be more content with who I am and accept everything that is in my life.  Life will continue to bring me happiness, sadness, excitement, anger, and all the emotions we feel as humans.  My plan is to keep content throughout all of this and no all these emotions will come and go.
 
In reality I live a GREAT life.  I "should" not worry about anything.  The hard thing is for me to admit that I do have these feelings sometimes.  I could easily act like I am happy 100% of the time, but this is not what I want to do in my blog.   I want to give my honest emotions.
 
Enjoy your day.
