Going Deeper

I broke out my yoga mat & rug. I have been prac­tic­ing again. Reg­u­larly. But with a calmer spirit than when I started years ago. And after sev­eral years with­out any reg­u­lar prac­tice I’m more hum­ble about what my body can or can­not yet do. Every time I go a lit­tle deeper into a pos­ture, silence my mind and give up my need to be per­fect I’m not only hum­bled but more appre­cia­tive of my body as it is. My body has borne chil­dren, losses, weight, fear, joy, plea­sure and pain. It is a gift that I have been given from God and I am thank­ful for every nook and cranny, every line and mark, every move­ment I can or can­not yet do. It has car­ried me this far and I’m look­ing for­ward to grow­ing old with it.

Beautifully said. My yoga mat needs some dusting off. Thank you for the inspiration to not expect perfection, but enjoy the body I have. This is gorgeous!
