My soul is rebellious. I tend to shy away from the norm despite the many cities and countries that I’ve lived. With this rebellious nature comes a sense of judgement for the common culture. A negative attitude that faces the things I can’t understand. My heart was telling me that I needed to make some changes in my life. However, with the coming new year and the ideal of resolutions, my mind told me no. Despite the torment between my mind and my soul, I made a change today. I went to yoga class to try and learn ways to stifle the stress and the hate in the world in which we live. You see, I know I can access the creativity that lies dormant within me. The first step is to manage the stress, the ache in my chest when life becomes too much.
In class today, the yoga instructor told us that this one decision to practice ripples to the people around us. In this sense, our inner well-being affects everyone. My choice for the month of January is to embrace positivity. I know that the first step to awaken the dormant person inside of me is to allow no negative words to come from my lips.
