I finally went to a yoga class this afternoon. Although I’m not a big yoga person, I have enjoyed going to yoga in the past. However, it has been a long time since I’ve gone; I am intimidated by the usually more experienced participants that populate yoga classes. So, instead of plowing through and not caring what others thought, I chose the easy way by sitting out.
But this is my year of being a BADASS and there’s no turning back.
I had to go.
I had to conquer my fears.
I had to stop caring what others would think of me long enough to focus on myself.
And, right now, I feel pretty proud to have gone to a yoga class that, while not rigorous (that’s my pre-badass self speaking – hard to shut her down completely, yet), certainly allowed stretching, moments of mindfulness, breathing and meditation.
I really needed that.
Can’t wait for next week’s class!
