[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Challenge some of your beliefs

"where you are. is not who you are. - circumstances" -- Nayyirah Waheed, salt

I always had this idea that yoga was boring, don't even ask me how I came
to that conclusion, and I never even gave it a try, just formed a
conclusion and ran with it! How many times have you done that, taken what
someone else has told you as gospel before even giving it a try or
investigating it, do you know how much fun and life events I have missed
out on because of taking other people's opinions, definitions and
perceptions without doing my own investigation of my truth? I decided to stop that when one of my teachers said " stand guard at the
door of your mind" and " challenge your core beliefs, ask it some
questions, explore and investigate it"

Life has been so much sweeter since then! I have started doing so many
things that I never even thought about doing! Going to so many places and
events and meeting some awesome people!

Anyways, back to yoga, I really dig it now! I see so many changes in my
body, my breathing my approach to my other activities like running and
boxing and I really dig the teacher, she's a good lady and friend and just
a super duper teacher, seems like she was born to teach yoga

I went this morning at 6am and so happy that I did!

Do something you have never done before, challenge some core beliefs you
may be totally surprised at the results!
