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 311 - Forever changing and forever growing

Our life is filled with a world of opportunity.  Every day we are given an opportunity to grow from our previous day.  We have the ability to stop and be happy with who we are.  We have the ability to do things that lower our existence.  We have every moment of our life to decide whether to do go down any of these paths in life.  Why do we not always look for growing avenues.

Looking back at my life I see things that I would consider that I lowered my existence where I was not growing.  However, also looking back I look at these "lower" points of my life as opportunities to grow from.  I do not think that I would change my past one bit, but also am happy to have grown into who I am today.  Without the low points I would not have my high points.

Only you know what are considered growing opportunities for you.  This will also change throughout your life.  We can look back at our past and look how we have grown into who we are today.  Keep in mind that you probably thought you had grown from your previous past.  The point of this is there is always something to grow from.  Today look at the opportunities of how you might be able to grow in your life?

Your past is your past.  Some of you may have had a past where there was nothing but suffering and no growth.  Do not get stuck in this past.  Look for the opportunity to grow.  There is always a point to grow from, and that point is now.

Are you surrounded by people that encourage your growth or are they stunning your growth?  Are you in a relationship that you both encourage your growth or are you in a relationship where this growth is one sided.  Are you fulfilling someone's growth and ignoring your own?

As we continue to forever change we always need to look at opportunities to continue to grow.  There are moments in our life where we can drop our growth and help out our spouse, kids, parents, grandparents, friends, or complete strangers.  It is always a good thing to help others grow.  Do not drop it all for other growth though.  Today look at opportunities where YOU can grow.
