Today was a day of beginning to break habits. For one thing, I went to a Yoga class that I normally do not go to from a teacher I’ve only taken one class from before. She had us doing some very unconventional postures involving props….and, right away, I resisted in my mind. I found myself thinking this is stupid–this is not Yoga, and thinking aaagghh, I wish I could leave. Then, I realized that I AM doing Yoga—it’s just not what I’m used to—even though it seemed easy, it was quite a challenge..and I had to break some habitual thoughts about what Yoga is to me. I finally relaxed with what we were doing, and discovered some amazing new ways to attempt the postures I already do over and over. This was great!!! I hope to share a few of them here at Dirty Footprints.
Then…the biggest habit breaker came today as I got my hair cut super short and left the salon a brunette!!! I simply feel renewed…and excited to begin a new year!!! It’s incredible what little things can do to change your perspective. How trying new things can be good for you after all. How taking a step out of our normal routine can open whole new worlds and solutions. It’s so easy to forget that the best part of life is that it is always plausible!!!
