For my 36th birthday, I decided to engage myself with a life coach to start thinking about who and how I wanted to be. I uncovered some interesting self reflections and I discovered some really big roadblocks within myself. Many of which I give in to on a regular basis. A couple of weeks ago I started doing yoga. I needed to build in one healthy habit that was going to give me a strong foundation and that I can be successful at. One of my biggest challenges is just making time for myself and particularly pulling myself away from work. I've done yoga almost every day for the past two weeks and am finally learning how to create that time and space. It's something I look forward to and am willing to make time for. Now that I am on a roll, I really don't want to miss it. I am finding so much greater awareness of my self - my physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual state of being. I feel like I'm able to take in more, to give more, and to be a little bit more fully. I like it, and can see it is laying a strong foundation for growth in so many other areas of my life. I know eventually there are other healthful habits I need to incorporate for a strong and healthy heart but I'm trying not to think ahead. This is my focus for now and I'm looking forward to seeing where this journey takes me.
