How does one take this on? Well, nobody's perfect, and there have been some hiccups along the way. You can't please everyone and people's feelings get hurt. However, taking responsibility, having the more difficult conversations from a place of understanding, and practicing patience have been helpful tools. My daily meditation practice has served me greatly. I've had inspired ideas, recognized where I might have been wrong, and found peace during moments when things didn't seem to be falling into place.
How you handle one thing in your life is very likely how you handle most things, if not everything. We don't live in a series of events where everything is separate. It's all happening, all at once!
Choose one area in your life that is incredibly important to you and start to apply tools that will help you shift how you view and deal with that particular area of your life. Then observe how you are in other aspects of your life... You can start with your yoga practice.
How you approach your yoga practice is a beautiful mirror for how you live your life.
Start simple. As you move through your practice ask yourself the following questions:
● What are the types of thoughts that arise?
● Am I being judgmental of myself or others?
● Are my opinions negative or positive?
● Am I making myself wrong?
● Am I smiling even through the difficult postures?
You create your life. Why not create something fun and full of love for yourself and for those in your life?!
