Writing, Yoga, Meditation, Retreats and SEL Professional Development
When was the last time you felt really relaxed, calm, and centered? If you have a regular yoga and meditation practice, it might happen once a day. When you’re in the writing zone, cooking zone, or off on a run, you may forget yourself and feel as if you’re floating in a fluffy cloud. That’s what keeps me on the mat.
When was the last time someone really pissed you off? Even if you have a regular yoga and meditation practice, it can still happen more frequently than you would like. We live in an upside-down world where someone is always saying something stupid or doing something hurtful and wrong. You have a choice to take it personally or not, but sometimes we have to step in and speak up.
This is what it means to be a warrior. You have to be fierce and hold your position for as long as it takes to get the job done. Sometimes not saying something is much worse than voicing what must be said, even if you wish someone else would say it instead of you. Sometimes, it’s totally up to you to be the warrior. You don’t have a choice. Write about a time you went to battle even though you really wanted to float up in the clouds.
