Yes, we talked about crazy last week. But I have a little bit more to say on the subject.
Sometimes in the yoga community we feel expected to always be calm, to always be in control (as Janet would say). But let’s face that just isn’t always the case. I am tired of feeling like a bad yogi when I embrace my crazy.
I freak out, I get upset, I dance around the house to Hello, Dolly. Why must we all feel like we have to deny some parts of ourselves? Why do we pretend to be always together? Why can’t we embrace our bat crap crazy as a part of our souls?
The time is now!
Now is the time to REALLY embrace all of you. The pretty parts and the cray cray parts. Now is the time to bring to light what REAL yoga is about. It’s about loving yourself and doing the best you can, and forgiving yourself when sometimes it all goes to hell.
Being a put together person does not mean living in a permanent state of meditation because for most of us that is impossible, and it may even be a bit boring (did she just say that?!). Being put together means what it means for you.
Getting make-up on before you run out the door.
Remembering to turn the oven off.
Turning the dishwasher on once and a while.
Having chocolate on your face & not getting embarrassed when someone points it out (chocolate is delicious).
Being able to make time for love, for friends and family, for life!
Never be ashamed of the mess that you may be (because you aren’t always). Don’t think that to be a ‘good’ yogi you have to always be OMing, all you have to do is get up every morning and try again.
Embrace your crazy, wonderful, hella awesome self–all of it!
MUCH Love & dancing to your own beat!
