So I had a post all ready to go yesterday in my head…but here’s the thing. I feel like the only motivational thing I did yesterday was pry myself up off the couch, take a shower and say to myself, self, get out the door to yoga…ignore that it is cold and rainy and extremely dark. JUST go. Then I said to my husband, “If I tell you I don’t feel like going to yoga because I ache/hurt, tell me to go anyway. No matter what I say.” I am positively sure this will come back to haunt me.
So I knew I made the right decision when I started to release the pain in my neck, shoulders, lower back and hips. I absolutely love restorative yoga for my aches and the slow, no pressure, use as many props as you need to hold the pose feeling goes with fibromyalgia. I am encouraging as many people who need healing to go to this type of class. By healing I mean any kind of healing. Seriously. But you have to go all in. You can’t try to fool yourself. You can’t make excuses. It doesn’t work that way.
So I have my calendar set up with my appointments. I have my yoga nights on there…and soon my yoga weekends. I can’t let my mind stop me from doing something I know is good for my body. I can’t let weather, aches, pains, and any other excuses stop me. I have made a decision and I have a goal. I have to release the outcome as I have done my part. Small steps people. Small. Steps.
