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 276 - I am really just me.
I went to Full Circle today for a Yoga Flow Class with Christine Northcote. I am really feeling good about things today. There is so many good things happening in my life. It is great to sometimes recognize and give gratitude to these things.
Reading the quote above I sometimes feel like I have a problem being happy for some of the things in my life. I fear being seen as someone who brags or is putting myself above others. For years I have downgraded who I am in order to make sure I do not sound conceited. For years I have tried my best not to fit in. Eventually I did not even fit in with my true self. I shied away from being labeled and when ever I was labeled I would run in the opposite direction to prove that I was something else. I was so scared to be myself.
I am happy I am no longer like this. I still do not brag about who I am. I am working on telling people who I am. Not what I do, where I live, or where I've been. I am getting to a point where I am really just me :)
Life is good!
Have a great day / night.
