Day 40: Yoga Lesson by My Little Man

Atticus and mom laughingOn March 1, 2014 my son was born. Each day this little man teaches me more about how to live my yoga than over ten years on my mat

“Pick your priority and focus on that.”

When I nurse my little man he requires I focus on him. He gets upset when I get on my phone or look at a computer. When I sit and nurse him, I think of all the things I could also be doing. Then I remember nothing matters but my small guy. So, I hear my phone chirping and beeping, my dog barking, the to-do list calling and I let them all fade into background music as I stare at, cuddle with, and nurse the most beautiful soul I have ever come across.  My little man forces me to focus on what matters the most and not waste the beauty of a moment with the outside world…which can wait.

 

Day 28: Life Lessons from a Newborn

Let go of any all expectations.

This is something that many people hear constantly in yoga classes. Being a driven, competitive person I could not really let go of any expectation. As a mother, I am forced to live in the moment. I cannot expect that I will at eat, pee, or sleep at any particular time. I have to “go with the flow” and enjoy the journey because I have no clue what will be next.

Open your eyes and look around you. See things as if you are looking at them for the first time.
