A week ago I came back from this incredible trip and you know what, I wasn't the best yogi the whole time I travelled. In the three weeks I was out and about I only got on my mat a handful of times. Some days I struggled with that, knowing that I "should" be doing more, pushing harder, stronger, faster, better. And I probably could have. But I didn't. And as tough as that pill might be to swallow and admit especially considering how much I practice and try to stay active when I'm home, it's true. And that's ok. It's ok. Circumstances were different, travelling was exhausting (7 plane rides in 3 weeks 😎 🎉) and I found my heart and mind better focused off the mat during that time.
I guess what I'm saying is, we all could do more, work more, push more, and sometimes that's exactly what we need. But when we take the opposite and rest more, it's so easy to beat ourselves up and say we're lazy or unhealthy. I'm a big offender there. But I'm a work in progress and my rest time is mine to do with as I see fit without guilt clouding my mind and making me feel inadequate. ❤️❤️ #yoga #yogaeverydamnday #yogaeverywhere #pdxyoga #yogi #portlandyoga #portlandyogis #portlandyogascene #namaste #yogainspirations #everybodyisbeautiful #yogapractice #yogalove #yogaeverydamnday #yogajourney #flexibility #hereiam #everybodybends #yogalife #acceptance #rest #sydney #darlingharbor
