Words Crush Wednesday – B.K.S. Iyengar Edition

This week’s Words Crush Wednesday quote is by the yogi master known as B.K.S. Iyengar. You don’t have to be a yoga enthusiast to appreciate this gem of a quote (however, my obsession clearly continues).

So many of us are strong on the outside, able to weather many storms, withstand pain, difficulty, and, at times, great tragedy, yet we sometimes find ourselves losing our shine. Whether you’ve had a crappy day because your boss is a dick, or you had a fight with your partner, or your health blows, or you’ve lost a loved one, it’s easy to be overwhelmed. Life is hectic for most of us, granted, to varying degrees, but that’s not important. What is important is to remember to breathe, find a moment to be still, and remember that it’s sometimes okay to not be okay. There is always a radiance, a beautiful, captivating light within all of us. Don’t lose your shine.

Words Crush Wednesday – Morgan Freeman Edition

We’re well into the New Year, and it’s a busy one! Last year I struggled to find a stillness within myself. There was too much going on, but isn’t that always the case? Towards the end of last year, I decided to apply myself, really discipline myself, to find inner calmness. Yeah I know, it sounds like I’m sitting cross-legged, fingers together, humming “ommmmm”. (Although that is a very good way to do it!) This year is dedicated to getting my health back on track after a very challenging 2015. Enter eating healthily, exercising (hells yes, yoga!), and finding and connecting with a mental and emotional serenity. Regardless of who you are and what your circumstances may be, we all get frazzled and don’t pause to find the stillness. I’m not saying I’m there yet, but I’m practicing every day, and I now wonder how I coped without it. (Clue: rhymes with “whine”.)
