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 292 - In Spain and Life is good

Life is good.  It is so weird how we often forget this.  It is easy to remember this when you are relaxing or on vacation. Eventually, the busy times of life hit us again or the negativity's of life destroys our souls, we once again forget the goodness that is in all of our lives.

I have had a few comments that I am lucky to live my life or I get the question "How do you get to travel so much."  Life is what you want it to be.  Every avenue takes on a different challenge.  We are taught that if we do not go to school, we cannot make money, and we will not be able to provide for ourselves or our family.  There is nothing wrong with this avenue.  I followed this avenue.

I know that one of my main passions in life is to see the world.  Being here in Spain, I realize I have so much more to see.  I have a lot more to learn from so many more people in life.  I feel like I have had this passion to travel  since 1999.  I feel like when I got sober my thoughts started to switch to, "I should settle down, I should get married, and I should have babies."  I did that, and fortunatly enough for me the marriage did not work out, and I did not produce kids.  Now I am all set to focus on me and my goals again, and I am doing everything I wanted to do.  Once I got back on my path and started to do my thing and traveling again, I met someone with the same interest, and now we have been both been on a similar path working towards similar things.  Like I said...Life is good.

So to answer the question,  "How do I get to travel so much."  It's because I want to, it's because I can,  it's because I do.  I have gone to over 20 countries and I feel like I am just at the beginning of my new adventure.  I am extremely grateful to all the opportunities that have presented themselves to me, but I also am taking credit for the fact that I grasp on to the opportunities that are there to guide me on my current path.

If you have something that you have always wanted to do, start looking at those opportunities that are smacking you in the face telling you to take a chance.  Do not use the excuses in your life, just take the chance.  We all have excuses, kids, money, family, loneliness, fear, ect.  STOP.  take the chance, and start manifesting ways to do your dream.  Listen to these dreams and not your excuses.  We live so much of our lives with excuses. 

Life is good.
