Life Lessons

Today I am grateful for all the lessons I’ve learned in life so far. As I’ve aged it’s become much easier to maintain a harmonious balance without unnecessary tension and drama.

My past hasn’t exactly been easy, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world. I’m a big believer that we are simply the product of our collective experiences. My experiences have shaped me and moulded me into who I am, and although I’m a work in progress, I love how I am turning out so far.

We come into this world alone and we leave it alone. We alone must decide if we've led a full and happy life.

Yoga Practice

Today I am grateful for my yoga practice. Having arthritis in my lower back makes many forms of exercise uncomfortable, but it’s precisely the reason I need to do it. After attempting many different things I found yoga.

I always expected that yoga would benefit me physically – and it does – but I never anticipated the spiritual healing it brings. No matter how wound up I am beforehand, my yoga practice brings me to a place of peace and calm, where I feel balanced and centred. Tonight’s practice was no exception.

Namasté
