This is another yoga story! Again I was in yoga class and was trying to get my body into a particular pose. I was struggling and wavering all over the place and getting more and more frustrated. The instructor mentioned to another student that they could use a prop to help them if they couldn’t fully get into the pose. Well, the light finally went on for me on two levels…ask for help and use the resources available to you! My yoga blocks where sitting on the floor right next to me, why not engage them in supporting my body so that I could more fully understand the pose and its benefits instead of being distracted by my frustration and erratically wavering body?!
Now, with my body propped and supported the idea came to mind that this is what most of us do in our daily lives. We think that we have to do everything on our own without help. As a result, we end up tired, frustrated, scattered and unfocused. Why not ask for support? Engage and invite the people and resources around you to support you in your goals. I know they will be happy to help and everyone will feel much more joyful in the end!
