“Most of us live soap-opera lives — slaves to our tendencies, hoping that we’ll have the right emotions and thoughts to “allow” us to behave differently, and fearing that the wrong emotions or thoughts might block us from our goals.” - Dan Millman -
ON THE MAT
Emotions are a powerful force. Sometimes the overwhelm us, don't they?? When these feelings arise in us, they have the power to create a lot of excuses. So today, we have 60mins. Let's use our time and deliberately pull the rug out from under our collective excuses. Let's reclaim the power to behave with courage and compassion no matter what we are feeling or thinking.
OFF THE MAT
Truth, emotions are a part of our daily. Someone cuts us off when driving, a person at work slights us; we get into an argument with our partner. How about the other side of the spectrum; we have a major success, or perhaps someone we love does something special for us. The ebb and flow of our emotions are a part of daily life.
Sometimes these emotions hold us back from taking action or propel us forward without thinking first. But no matter what we are feeling, we have the power to behave with courage & compassion. As you step off the mat and into your life with family, friends, co-workers, reclaim your power respond and not just react to the emotions that rise in you.
