Reconciling conflicting emotions isn’t always easy. You know those times when you feel totally overjoyed and ecstatic about something amazing in your life, and also painfully sad with gut-wrenching grief about something or someone else at the same time.
Yoga hurt today. I showed up to one of my favorite classes joyful and in pain, back pain, chronic back pain. I grabbed a few of my favorite props, rolled out my mat, and searched for a comfortable position…never to be found…yet showing up was my intention. No pain, no gain…, right?
Ever wonder about what or who influences how we move through the world, whether we risk or don’t, how we communicate, react, respond, or don’t, how we treat others and more importantly, ourselves?
