Focus on You

I did something I never do, I spent money on myself and participated in an in-studio yoga retreat. I was so happy I did. I never like to purchase events like this for myself because the money is always tight. I sucked it up and paid the money and treated myself. It was a great experience just focusing on myself. I didn’t try to compare my practice to others in the class. I fully embraced myself just as I am. I accepted my limitations and challenged myself to fully immerse into the energy that was in the room. I didn’t judge myself at all. I moved the way spirit moved me. It felt amazing!
When we bring attention to ourselves and how we want to feel, we can notice when others take advantage of our time and how good it feels to feel good. I recently had a great conversation with one of my students from Bodyflow. She expressed that my classes have given her a better understanding of self-care. She reiterated how she does not have a close support system around her but with joining the club and coming to classes, she has renewed her idea of feeling good for herself. She has realized the people who deserve her time and energy.
Hearing from my students gives me a great sense of belonging and love. I am doing exactly what I was meant to do on this earth. Teach people to love themselves and feel good in the process. If it is with yoga, fitness classes, or personal training, I give my whole heart to them and make them aware that whatever we do in that hour, they are doing the best they can for themselves.
Doesn’t that feel good to hear?
You are doing the best for you today!
So if you need a break, a rest, time to breathe, why not get a massage, facial, take a yoga class, meditation class, whatever it is to help you go inward. Because if we don’t focus on how we are feeling on the inside, no one else will.
FOCUS ON YOU!
Love & Light,
