I attended a recent business lunch and presentation for women in the energy industry. The speaker was a very professional, knowledgeable and personable young lady - probably in her mid thirties if I had to take a guess (which I don't usually do because I am usually wrong). As I listened to her speak I found myself thinking about myself as a young professional in the power industry. I thought about the opportunities I had, the people I worked with, and how fun my work was. I would have enjoyed the position and the work the woman was describing. Then the shoulda, coulda, woulda started to speak within me. I caught myself and focused back on what I had, where I was and how much I enjoyed what I was currently doing - bringing it on back to me.
The same type of thing happens to people in yoga class. They are working in class moving through the poses doing perfectly fine and then they start to look at the people around them. There will always be someone who can go a little farther in a pose or flip upside down with the greatest of ease while you struggle to touch your toes. The best thing to do - and the only thing to do - is bring it on back to you. Relish in the feeling the yoga is producing in your body, congratulate yourself for coming to class and the progress you are making and know that you are in the right place for you and they are in the right place for them.
Bring It On Back To You.
