Mental Flexibility

Today’s yoga theme was flexibility. This got me thinking about how flexible I am (or not) when unexpected obstacles arise or when I’m in an environment with circumstances outside of my control. How flexible am I to adapt to unique situations or a blip in my own expectations?

For me, this yoga practice is quite emotionally and spiritually self-reflective. I am typically an impulsive person within certain aspects of my life, and I have always known that this is a weakness for me. As I reflect, and work on expanding my mind, taking more pauses, and not rushing through things, I am realizing that achieving more mental flexibility is not only possible for me – it’s necessary. 

Pause. Wait. Breathe. Think it through. You will be okay. Expand.

Catch ya on the flip side,
Mary

  1. Mary, you always put things in such a true, down-and-dirty perspective, getting to heart of the matter! I have always been somewhat of a control freak, so it is something I am working on improving at all times. Flexibility is one of my themes for myself this year, not only in body, but mind and spirit as well! Three days straight of yoga practice, and I am beginning to find what feels good! Thanks for sharing the journey!

  2. Great message, Mary! Although, yesterday’s trust practice was challenging because trust doesn’t come easily to me, I found peace in today’s YWATrue practice. I find an ease in flexibility – it allows me to flow both physically and mentally without rigid constraints. I find joy in flexibility. Looking forward to tomorrow! 💜
