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.

Dsy 278 - I love to travel

Today I went to Yin Yoga with Kristen Schneider at Full Circle Yoga.  The classes at Full Circle have been putting a pretty big smile on my face.  I am happy.

I still feel very much in touch with where I am.  I feel very free, and am continueing to have an outlook that the world is my backyard.  I want to explore it all.  I am bringing it to the forefront of my mind.  I do not know exactly what it is that I am looking for, but I feel the draw to travel around and experience as much as I can out there.

Have you ever had a change or something that is so new to you that you begin to get nervous.  You may start to fear it or have an increase in your anxiety.  You start to ask if this change is for the better.  You get to a point where you know it is good for you, but you have a feeling that you want to turn it around and go back to the old comfortable ways of things.

How much of this nervous, fearful, and anxious feeling do you allow to control your life.  When do you take the plunge?   What causes us to not fight though these feelings?  We can stop and hide from the fear, but then we start developing a fear of feeling this fear.

I do have a fear of traveling.  Not in the sense of where I am going, or what I am doing, but rather a feeling of I should be doing something else.  I fear not spending enough time with loved ones.  I fear loosing my dog while I am away  I fear not spending more time at work building up my company.  I have had this travel calling for my whole life.  I love to travel.

I am just now beginning to accept it in my life, but I also notice others building this fear.  They make me feel as if I am not supposed to travel.  I should be spending time doing other things.  I wonder what these people would have me do?

I really am over the "shoulds", and am at the point where I feel I have built a great, stable, and happy life for myself.  I did everything that I "should" do.  Now I am going to see more of the world.
