Yesterday, I was thinking about how easy it is for me to get wrapped up in work and projects and forget about the joy of enjoying life and living in the flow. A yoga class and trip to the skate park made me realize how important it is to balance work with play... and how important it is to appreciate and absorb life's basic joys.
I always think of a comment I often hear in my yoga classes... "enjoy it... yoga is supposed to feel good... let it feel good".
Practicing yoga regularly over this past year has made me remember to take the time to breathe and to sit with my emotions. To let the thoughts melt away... and to listen to the feelings... to be in tune with the feelings that come up when to do lists and thought activities are taken away. I think that taking time to feel is so important to growing toward happiness and self-acceptance.
