Why are my shoulders and neck so tight this morning? Why does my mind keep wandering? Why can’t I keep my breath steady like yesterday? Why do I want to just stay in child’s pose?
Despite the obvious chatter going on in my mind, I actually did have a nice practice this morning. We all go through it. We all look for excuses not to get on our mat, not to be aware of our movement and breath, not to sit in silence. But if you’re going to make a commitment to show up for yourSELF, there can no longer be excuses. It has to turn into excitement, that feeling of “I can’t wait to get on my mat and practice for ME!”
Mantra for this morning’s meditation: I forgive myself.
