364 Days to go!
I was having a conversation with a friend last week about fear. What she was fearful of. How it was holding her back.
The divine voice of wisdom spoke through me and said , "you must step outside your comfort zone if you want to see a shift in energy. Only when you do this will transformation take place". It had taken me 34 years to learn that.
Yesterday I step outside my comfort zone and started my 365 days of yoga challenge. Due to scheduling conflicts the universe, aka my husbands work schedule, has forced me into a new starting date (previously it was set for Jan 1st). The whole point of this challenge was to mend my minds view of yoga. Now it has become more of a challenge to step outside my own comfort zone.
The challenges I have faced already have been:
Trying to gain my husbands support in this when he thinks I will develop tunnel vision with yoga and become one of "those" people.
Child care. With three boys and my husbands crazy work schedule I may not be able to get to a studio class everyday for the first month like I had planned. So it may not be exactly the way I had envisioned it... This is a challenge after all.
Home practice. Hardest part is developing the self motivation to just do it! Some days my practice may involve my kids climbing all over me while in tree pose, some days I will wake before they do so I can have a quiet practice;)
What ever challenges may lie ahead, whether its yoga involved or not I am ready for this.
Bring. It. On.
P.S First class was Bikram and will be fore the next 6 consecutive days...Water please!
