Hello True Yoga Blog friends,
Thank you for being such faithful readers.
I know I’ve been saying that life has been so busy, for the last year since my baby was born, but it has been and continues to be… However, I’m learning more and more how to carve out time for myself in my new reality of motherhood. Speaking of motherhood, it is the greatest blessing. Motherhood is all that Yoga epitomizes and so much more. It is a tremendous lesson in being present, being patient, and selfless love. Yogananda says the only love that is real is selfless love. That is the truth.
I know you are such faithful readers because I still receive emails all the time with requests to post events on the True Yoga Blog, and, I receive emails from fellow writers who are hoping to share their writings with all of us.
I just received an email today from a fellow Yogi who sounds like he has a wonderful topic he would like to write about. I am looking forward to reading what he has to say…it’s about cultivating a home practice in all seasons of our life, especially, during the very busy time of the holidays.
Do you know I’ve practiced Yoga almost everyday in the past two years?
I realized just how committed I am to my Yoga practice when I experienced being pregnant and being a new mom. Finding time to practice Yoga as a new mom is not easy. But, there is a commitment that drives me because I know how incredible I feel when I give that time to myself. There have been times that my son has been crawling on me in the middle of a headstand, splits, etc. I’m sure my fellow Yogi parents out there know exactly what I’m talking about. Yet, we find the time to practice because we know how worth it is to move, to breathe, to center ourselves, ESPECIALLY, as a parent and all of the responsibility and challenges that involves. What a blessing to have that sacred time of Yoga practice that we can carve out just for ourselves in the, often, hectic flow of day to day life.
So, that is what one of the upcoming True Yoga Blog posts is going to be about…finding time to practice Yoga in the midst of the busyness of life.
Oh, I’m not sure I mentioned but I’m also working full time now, too. Life is busy but so rewarding to get to rise to the responsibility of all that God has blessed me with in being a mother. So, while there’s times I feel challenged, above all, I am so humbled and grateful for the blessings He has given me… Read the rest…
