Here are the thoughts for this week’s yoga classes:
“The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.” -Socrates
Personally I have undergone some beautiful amazing changes in my life and have build a new happy, amazing, normal. I have some sweet dear women I adore who are in the middle of their fighting of the old bad habits. This quote is so simple yet so true. We cannot beat ourselves up, we cannot be ridden with self-judgement, conflict, or self-berating. It won’t get us anywhere. It focuses our attention on what’s wrong. If instead we focus on being present, being here, gratitude, and on actually creating the life we want, that’s when change happens easily, just unfolds into a new happy norm, of whatever you want it to be.
If you’re in the midst of a self-berating battle cycle, just relax. Deep breaths. Focus not on what’s wrong, but focus on what’s right, and visualize what you want life to look like, and then focus all you’ve got on creating it. Do your thing regardless of anyone else. Be you. You’re so so oh so worth it.
