Recently I have been feeling a bit of anxiety around blogging. I want to write awesome and witty content, but I don’t always know where to begin. Maybe that is because I haven’t found my niche yet – the 30 Day Writing Challenge was a great way to loosen me up, but it had guidelines that let me step back from the conceptual process. I’ve written about this feeling before so I went back to read my Quality of Life post for inspiration. I read so many fantastic blogs and I wonder where those bloggers find their drive and creativity! I would love to tap into that well…
Until I find that fountain of blog-youth, I will stick to writing about my emoootions and throw in some yoga (please see #4 in the previously mentioned post).
I found a new yoga class and teacher that is a step up from my previous level. This new class is a serious struggle for me most Mondays, as I attempt to balance my body on my forearms and thrust my legs out into space. But I love it!
Yesterday, however, I went through the class feeling very frustrated. My wrists and hips hurt and I couldn’t make my body do what I wanted and I almost cried at one point. I have known for a while that I struggle with half moon pose, but it crept up on me and made me feel so low. But I got through it. I finished class and left feeling ok. It is going to take a while for me to accept that my body just cannot do some things, no matter how much yoga I practice or flexible I get, so I will need to be creative to achieve my goals.
I feel as though I really brought my current life onto the mat. I have been feeling pretty blocked recently and I let that settle into my mind and carry me downward, dog. I need to let this be a reminder to let go. Because once I let go, I will be mentally light enough to mentally throw my legs through the air and mentally accomplish anything set before me.
