Control…it’s an illusion.

This week is all about control. Learning to let it go and have faith. It’s something I’ve always admired in others and thought I knew how to do, but realize now that I was kidding myself.

Yoga is forcing me to face it, deal and move through it. Thank God for yoga! I have a long way to go, but as I slowly learn to let go, I am finding that a physical constriction around my heart is starting to release and I can sleep better.
Controlling behavior hurts everyone and accomplishes nothing in my life…I’m excited/nervous to watch it release from my heart and sail away. It’s a habit and habits take time to break or ‘retrain’, but 6 months of intensive yoga will likely do the trick!
