I was reminded this morning that we are truly all a little fragile.
After I finished my practice last night, I felt a bit strange. My body ached, my head felt heavy and my throat was sore. I thought I just needed a proper nights’ sleep and would feel better this morning. To my surprise, this morning, I felt worse. So, instead of pushing myself to practice today, I rested. And I am planning on resting again tomorrow.
I am a pretty healthy person, in general. I do yoga and meditate daily, I eat well, I sleep 8 hours almost every night. But, you know what? I’m not invincible, and right now, my body is saying to take it easy. I haven’t always listened to what my body was trying to tell me to do. I had a routine, and I was focused on sticking to it. The older I get, I am starting to realize just how fragile the balance in our bodies is. And I, for one, am really starting to listen. I don’t need to prove anything to anyone. I just have to work on finding balance and I am choosing to let my body be my guide.
sending you love, light, and a little extra balance
