trust the process

Thursday, May 21st
To some, it's Thursday.  To me, it's "Yogaday".  So thankful for the gift of learning to love this day for what it is and not fear it because of what some make it out to be.  I did Isometrix and X3 Yoga for my workout today.  I am amazed at the progress I have made.  A year ago, I thought yoga would be the unconquerable hurdle on my fitness journey.

The process will only take me as far as I trust it to take me.
So far, so good.

They all share themselves with me.
When I am not at my best, I'm not giving them a good return for their investment.
They get the tired looks, the lack of energy excuses, and the wimpy "maybe next time" cop outs.
I have come to realize that those that take precious time to invest in me deserve better from me. I need to adhere to the direction given on any flight I've ever been on that goes something like this: make sure your own oxygen mask is properly secured before helping others. If I don't take care of myself first, my ability to care for others effectively diminishes quickly.
My choosing clean eating, drinking enough water, and exercising on a daily basis is how I put on my mask first. Am I perfect at meeting the n…
