Do you ever feel like you just can't get everything done in a week? This week was just that for me. So you might have guessed it, no yoga practice.
As with anytime I feel behind with something, I am annoyed. All I wanted to do was a session or class but where did it fit in? And with all my irritation, I started to question if I am able to make the unwritten deadline of writing this blog every week.
I started to think that this kind of self-doubt is very much like the doubt the general public has with adhering to a physical activity program, yoga or otherwise. New Year`s resolutions are on the forefront this week and it is not surprising that over the next couple months this same type of self-doubt is to be oh-so common.
I can`t get to my exercise program.
Why do we questions ourselves about `keeping up`? Can`t we be happy for what unfolds in our week even if it does not fit our agenda? And maybe, just maybe, our week was the way it was suppose to be (in my case, no yoga).
Such loaded questions to ask. But these questions have made me take a step back and be easier on myself. Because it is only one week and there will always be another week to practice yoga.
I actually started to think - Wow, I`ve actually gone 18 weeks with at least one yoga session per week. Something to be proud of? Absolutely!
Back to the mat, doing the best I can,

I've practiced yoga since I was a pre-teen and have always found it to keep me centered. I will be a teacher one day and this is my journey to discover teaching and practice.
