So one of my students asked me a while ago why I do yoga, and I told him that it’s the one time I’m completely in the moment, and I’m just focused on being present. But I’ve realized it’s more than that. I do yoga to love myself. To love my body. To release the past. To embrace how I am exactly in the moment. It’s an act of self-love, that I make time for. I’ve been going through a pretty big emotional transition, and I’ve realized that going to yoga has really helped me. I went four times within the last week, and I honestly feel so much better. It’s really important to take care of yourself. I got a massage on Saturday, and my masseuse told me that in order to take care of my kids, I have to take care of myself. And while that’s true, I have to take care of me for me, not for anyone else or anything else. I am my own motivation and I think that you should be your own. Grow to be the best person you can be.
Indeed! Thank you for sharing this inspirational blog. We should take care of ourselves for us! Not just because of anyone but because this is what our selves/body deserves!
