90 Days of Namaste: Day 6

Word of the Day: Peace

Found on Pinterest. In a word? Obsessed.
Found on Pinterest. In a word? Obsessed.

I barely eked out my 30 minutes today, but I did it!

I have no idea how I was complaining about yesterday when today (long story short), my purse was taken, then returned, then I was late, lost my phone, found my phone, went to the movies, did yoga.

It was a day that required patience and understanding, so when I realized it was 11:30 PM and I had not done my yoga, I had to be at peace with that. I did Erica’s Yoga for Relaxation and Sleep and it was peaceful and yet challenging.

There were a ton of hip-openers (an area, where I, like many, hold stress and past issues) and since this was a relaxation video, I had to be at peace with it (sensing a theme here, yet?). I could not resist the pain I was feeling in my hips and body. I couldn’t be disgruntled or hate on it because simply, the video wouldn’t let it be so. Erica made me accountable, and I think for the first time in my entire yoga practice, I began to actively let go in a class, physically AND mentally.

I realize that I have a ton of tension in my body that I need to get rid of, and I’m taking steps to do so. This week, I have a body reading with my yoga teacher and I’m starting acupuncture. I know I have pent-up energy in my body and I’m finally willing to let that go. So having to do yoga on a day that could have catapulted me into an emotional tailspin (as anyone who’s ever lost a wallet knows!) was actually the best thing that could have happened. I ended my day at peace by relying on energy that had got me through the day’s earlier stress.

I am letting go and loving it.
