Finding some time just for me, some quiet to settle my mind and some time for my yoga practice (heck some time to go to the bathroom alone) is a struggle.
I have come to realize that I can't keep quiet time for later, like leftovers we can enjoy the next day. I need a few minutes of quiet each day to just settle my mind. When I don't take those few minutes of quiet, I feel like I am giving away more than I am keeping of me. So this week is a lesson in Balance. A lesson in keeping it all on the level.
I can't even get all of this blog post down and done in one sitting. I have to learn to slow down and enjoy the moment as it is, not as how I want it to be. I know I am my own worst enemy in this regard. Try to make my surroundings fit what I want as opposed to enjoying my surrounds as they are is what is causing all the stress.
so as clichéd as it may sound, everything happens in it's own time. There is a season..... wearing flip flops in the winter doesn't make it summer, nor does it make any more sense then trying to do "my" thing, when it is time to focus on something else.
So to stop the clenching of my jaw, and the tensing of my shoulders, I need to stay in the moment and enjoy it for what it is. deep breaths!
