Isn’t this so true? When you find the time to be still, alone and in your own thoughts, you truly will be amazed with all the things that come to your mind. The depth of your awareness and the perspective of life it offers you. If you can try not to rush and just enjoy your own company, you will reap the benefits of your time with yourself...it is peaceful! #kpethinks#kpe#katrinaponceenrile#kpethoughts#quotes#silence#answer#deepthoughts
This is a variation of extended puppy pose. Apparently it's supposed to help alleviate stress.
Because the first thing I wanna do when I'm stressed is crank my neck back and stick my ass up in the air. Feeling my chin grind into the floor is an amazing benefit as well. Really relaxes the body and mind. This variation is especially beneficial when you draw your toes upward so your hamstrings start cramping right away. Om shanti, bitches. .
So what I'm really getting at here, is that yes yes these poses have benefits and they can be incredibly healing and wonderful and yoga can really be magic. It can. I'm being zero percent facetious with that statement. But sometimes we get carried away with shit and tbh it just gets ridiculous. And maybe this pose does it for you! Maybe you're having a shit day at work and your boss is being an asshole and your kids are being little jerks and you just want to scream and so you drop down and get your extended puppy pose on and you're like "holy fuck I feel so much better!!" And that's great! Get it girl! (Or bro!) But on the real, 99 pct of people can't relate to that and so what we end up doing here on social media is having the EXACT opposite intended effect. We are repelling people from this practice. So yeah. This was part of the rant I chose to ignore yesterday in favor of the mermaid hair flip, lolzzz, but...idk. I needed to get it off my chest.
What do you guys think? Do we igyogis get a little too carried away sometimes? I wanna hear your thoughts!! And if you don't agree, please comment! I love learning.
24 hours out of surgery, a bit out of it, not able to stand on my own 2 feet yet, but ready for the road to recovery and excited for what lies ahead just a day after an exciting career accomplishment to start the new year out right! As very few of you know minus those closest to me 2017 has been quite the eventful & challenging year. A year of unexpected challenges, unnecessary set backs, and situations challenging me more than ever. I’m never the type of person to really talk about or focus on the negatives in life and always keep my mind, body, and soul focused on the development of the positives! The fact is sometimes life isn’t fair and gets really tough rather if with your health, career, relationships, or being challenged in ways you never anticipated. Focusing on the negativity, becoming a victim of circumstance, or looking for sympathy or answers won’t fix or put you in a better place but focusing on solutions and the right mindset will! Through my travels throughout the world and places less fortunate and the sad reality of all the tragedies going on in our world over this past year, I feel blessed to be able to have another opportunity to come back tomorrow stronger than before and create as much of a positive impact on the world I can for all those around me! Can’t wait to tackle 2018 full speed and make it an epic unforgettable year! #goals#mindset#motivation#warrior#spartan#nofear#dreams#obstacles#leader#surgery#recovery#challenge#2018#resilience#fighter#newyear#athlete#business#love#strength#power#quotestoliveby#quoteoftheday#deepthoughts#controlyourdestiny
According to Camus, most of the pain we face in life can be broadly attributed to the conflict that arises when we try to reason with an unreasonable world. He called this absurdity.⠀
The only way to deal with this conflict effectively, in Camus’ eyes, was through what he referred to as rebellion. It was by revolting against absurdity with passion and freedom.
We sadly had to do some traveling this week to attend a funeral. Having this little guy with us and catching these small cheerful moments helped keep us from dwelling on the harsh reality of life. Thank you Cracker Barrel for having this cute set up!
