This weekend we’ve been having lots of fun at the studio. #filthybeats, a Canadian inspired soul playlist to celebrate my home nation, and then a wicked #FreedomFlow to rock Independence Day.
This past Sunday, for Soul Music Sunday I wanted to highlight some great Canadian soul. It was a vibrant class that was rooted in the decisions we make.
"Every decision you make, every decision, they’re not about what to do. It's a decision about Who You Are. When you see this, when you understand it, everything changes. You begin to see life in a new way. All events, occurrences, and situations turn into opportunities to do what you came here to do.” - Neil Donald Walsch -
ON THE MAT
To begin I just highlighted the fact that on a long weekend, and a hot day you made the decision to show up on your mat. Your practice matters to you. It's not about temperature or what day it is. Practice is a part of who you are.
The decision to show up and work with your breath and challenge your body, it's very powerful.
What about the decision to not force your way through practice or force yourself to keep up with the person next to you. This decision says a lot about who you are.
Or maybe you find yourself doing the opposite, caught up in comparison, caught up in how much you hate your body. The decision to not be frustrated with yourself is not an easy one. It can take a lot of practice. So keep showing up & keep checking in with choices your making in your practice.
OFF THE MAT
Here is a challenge for you, take a look at 5 decisions you've made recently. Big or small. Take out the notion it was a decision to do something and see if you can journal a little on what those decisions say about WHO YOU ARE.
Doing this work helps us deepen our understanding of who we are and this turns all events and occurrences into opportunities.
Keep Showing up, and keep waking up to your possibility.
