I’m not perfect and thank god for that!
This weekend, I took a mostly unplugged weekend. It is WAY harder than I thought it would be, even though I take most of the weekend away from Facebook or getting caught up in the world of cute cats doing yoga, puppies snuggling with babies, or the newest yoga gossip.
Friday night was the toughest, the urge to “check in” or see “what people were up to”, but by Saturday I felt relaxed. I also felt a little less pressure, pressure to be an amazing yogi and/or super mom. It’s true, I love all my rocking yogis who can handstand, back bend, or balance on their hands in some sweet acrobatic poses, but I’m not there yet. My postnatal belly isn’t strong enough nor are my arms to hold me up in anything more than plank for a few minutes. My little mini break from Insta-awesome-ness helped me focus on the here and now, where I am is where I am. No sense in worrying, being jealous, or wishing I was further than I am. Yoga is where you are at, every damn day! Same with awesome moms I follow or blogs I read. From seeing photos of clean houses, amazing meals, or colorful rugs/furniture/painting that leaves me wanting. My break showed me how sweet and lovely my life is, dog hair in the corners and all. 😉
My weekend was spent teaching prenatal and restorative, prepping for my mom to be here tomorrow, and playing with butterflies in the garden. Life is what happens when you put down the phone, laptop, and plug into the world around.
This week spring will be here!
Not only do I get to teach restorative on Thursday, but I am prepping my home to be “aired out”. Warmer weather means open windows and ceiling fans moving the stale and old out! I’m also purging the stuff we don’t use any more, hoping it finds the home it needs, and taking this opportunity to get rid of the plastics in the kitchen. Look for a twist video to come some time this week (having mom here will let me do so much during the day, I can’t wait!)
How do you reset your comparison clock? And what are your plans for the first day of spring?
