Keeping calm

I’ve been practicing yoga now for almost 10 years. All of the principles that you learn in class such as movement with breath, keeping calm, clearing your thoughts, keeping your body and your face relaxed while attempting challenging poses can be used to face daily life as well. However, I recently realized that keeping calm while facing adversity is a lot more challenging than it seems in yoga class. After the challenge has passed, I realize that had I continued to stay positive and use the yoga principles, the challenge would’ve been embraced. Instead the challenge often cripples me to my core. I want to say that next time, I will be ready for whatever life throws at me. However, all I can say is that I will keep practicing what I learn in yoga in hopes of staying grounded when the next challenge comes.

Today is a beautiful day despite it’s inhibitions and I have faith that it will be the best day of my life. Just like every other day.
