Day 5: A Case of the Mondays

I have no clue what was in the air or wrong with my body today but I was not really present in my practice. My shoulder was bothering me and I felt super sluggish. The class was also thrown off by some of the calls that were made when the instructor went through the same sequence but on the same side. (Usually the sequence is repeated to the opposite side to bring balance to the body).  Not to use that as an excuse and certainly not to hurt the instructor (because she’s totally killer and amazingly helpful as well as inspiring). It was just a first Monday of the year weirdness. 😆

So today’s post is a short one because it was just another day of ‘working out’.  The lesson here was sometimes you have to just roll out your mat and do the work. Perhaps I will look back on this day and realize it was a necessary step in the journey. Maybe later it will have a profound meaning. Maybe not? And that is OK.  In yoga you have to meet yourself where you are and today I was just there to participate I suppose!

Just trying to search out my niche in life and live to its fullest potential. These words are what come to mind when I think of my life in a nutshell: Mom, military wife, friend, French teacher, coach, yoga, working out, eating right, cooking, infertility survivor, travel and wanderlust. (Nothing is in any particular order other than Mom and wife as my family means everything to me!)
