Well then. Today I surprised myself – with how angry I was. How consumed I was by emotion, how out of whack and triggered. It is humbling, because of course my ego can be a little proud of the fact that I practice yoga – as in asana, but also all of the mind warrior business to manage emotions, chronic pain and symptoms. And hoo boy, today was humbling for that self-image.
So, as Bluey says ‘for real life’ – I am doing this practice for real life. This yoga thing is constant learning, and it includes life. It includes the times I feel ‘off’, lost in a reaction, or feeling unkind to my body. And then … registering this, and coming on back to breath, love, and presence.
Practicing. Practicing, practicing.
