Do what it takes. Give yourself what you need. Self care, self inquiry, quality time with quality people, practice honesty, avoid gossip, serve others and forgive. Take a trip alone to soul search. Rest up or get up, slow down or speed up, whatever you need.
Have patience. Minding our own business and focusing on how we as one person can be better simplifies things. And this is all part of yoga practice.
Practice is the key word. We are all learning until the day we die. Patience with ourselves is a good thing to focus on because we are all going to have moments we falter. Yet each day we start over again and each day we can try again to be as understanding as possible.
When on a soulful path it can be extra challenging and there will always be situations that knock us off balance. We will not always hit the mark but peace within is the best place to focus our efforts.
Do what feels right and do what feels good to you. Respect and love yourself and then it doesn't matter what others think about you. Being right within ourselves means being at peace with where and who we are. We can forget this and I do too at times but bring my mind back to this ASAP.
When stressful times hit we can go within. Sometimes it takes a little time to calm down but in just sitting, breathing and connecting with our inner self as best we can, can bring relief and peace in minutes.
Today is another new day.
