A few weeks ago, I wrote to you about my commitment to self-awareness, “#40Days“. The challenge will ends today with an abundance of chocolate and the gathering of loved ones. I’ve enjoyed this time of self-reflection. I committed myself to regular writing, meditation and yoga. I found that the time I put aside helped me to see more clearly into the busyness of life that came in between. I still felt emotions that I did not understand and I definitely got caught up in taking on too much so as not to disappoint people. But, I knew that I could return to my practice whenever I needed to. And this regularity, this alone time, gave me space to be with myself however I was.
It’s the last day of September!! Can you believe we’re entering October already?? It’s still warm here, but I’m loving the breeze and being able to wear my favourite clothing item: ripped jeans!!
I always thought yoga was too slow for me. Pilates was more my thing – it seemed more powerful, more energetic. But then, I got really unwell, and lifting my phone was challenging. After a few years of really struggling, I was finally diagnosed with fibromyalgia and started a treatment plan. As time went on, going to physiotherapy, developing strength again, I decided to give yoga a try. I fell in love; head over heels (kind of like a yoga position) in love.
