[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Balance it
Deceive yourself no longer that you are helpless in the face of what is
done to you. ACIM
Last night I had no plans of going to the Restorative Yoga Class, I wanted
to get home have my Skype meeting, read up on the weekend's football then
hit my bed early. As I was walking home I saw a really good friend , she asked me to go to
Yoga with her, well she pleaded. Okay then, I will go, I've relented, since
you asked so nicely.
As I sat waiting on the class to start a very well known lady walked in,
she could barely walk, she had a walking stick as her aid. My mouth fell
open. I would see her around town, on the newspapers, the television, well
everyone would see her, she was a hard worker, successful, at the gym,
doing her thing. After the class I asked the teacher what happened to her
She said "Stress"
I had to ask again just to confirm what I heard
"Did you say stress?"
"Yes - it's all stress related, and not taking time to rest and take care
of her body in a proper way"
What a wake up call! I am officially woke
Balance is essential. Do I want to "have it all" and not enjoy it? Hell naw!
All work and all stress is a recipe for disaster, clearly....
What have we placed as priorities in our lives?
Are we working so hard that even our health is at risk?
Who does that serve?
Find a way to balance it, some thing's gotta give
My grandma says, everything in moderation, even moderation in moderation
