On Day 5 of my 101-day Bikram yoga challenge, I found hope.
I was pretty sure that it would take determination and dedication to complete day after day of class yet today, I learned it takes much more than that. It takes hope and hope found me today in response to yesterday’s despair.
It really helped that I didn’t pig out hours before class like I did yesterday so I had no “funny tummy” to deal with during class. I was able to work my way through the postures without feeling like I couldn’t do another day.
So hope is restored. I can continue. I learn more about myself. My body is uneven. The right side is stronger, tighter and more tense than the left side. Working on balance. Also working on reducing my latest jack-in-the-box behavior, sitting & then popping up to do the next posture during standing. Stillness, I see you.
