How fitting. Day 15, halfway through and it's all about the half moons!
I took some time to reflect on why I started this challenge. I wanted clear my mind, reunite with my happy, and to feel good both inside and out. My mind, like everyone I know, gets completely filled with unnecessary stress and negative perspectives of current situations. I wanted a moment where I could dust all of that away. A moment where none of that exterior shit that takes up far too much energy matters. When I step onto my 10+ year old bright blue mat I take time for me, and I breathe away all of it.
Day 15 and I already feel changes. My body feels slimmer, stronger, and I stand up straighter. And I smile more! The theme of the half moon got me so excited. It's the moon I was born under and the halfway point of my first challenge of the new year. The half moon pose was a challenge since it is all about balance... another thing I'm striving for in the new year. Even though I fell out of the pose oh so gracefully, it reminded me that every day is different with new challenges. Points like that in the challenge teach me to appreciate all stages of any process. Even if you unattractively fall flat on your face.
