Hm, what to write, what to write. My best friend lectured me on keeping up with my blog the other day, so I am trying to get back to blogging everyday (or as much as I can). Don't get me wrong. I love to blog, but I think I worry too much about WHAT I am going to write. I know that people read this, at least two..., so I do want to keep this up. I would love it if more people followed my blog, but I guess it is a good thing that at least some people follow it. ^^ One thing that I haven't shared yet is that my Dad has started taking Yoga with me. I think it's a great thing. Yoga is such a healthy way of life, and it makes people more aware of the unhealthy things that they do. My dad has admitted to that one. He says that he is enjoying it a lot, and feels better after practicing. We go to a yoga class once a week. He drives to my mom's house and we walk to the studio together. It's not only beneficial for our health, but for our relationship as well. We get to do something one-on-one together once a week. My dad is a beginner yogi, so there are some poses that he is not ready for. I worry when he tries to push himself to do things that he shouldn't do. I wish that I could say something to him, but I don't want to offend him or hurt his feelings. If I were his Yoga instructor I would say something. One thing I want to point out is that in Yoga we should never push our limits. Yes, a challenge is okay, but take it step by step. Jumping the gun could end with an injury that could take weeks to heal. The same amount of time that it could take to master a pose. Patience is a key figure in yoga. I cannot stress this enough. I want so badly to learn the scorpion pose, but I know that before that, I have to master the headstand, the dolphin (one of my least favorite) and the peacock. Patience, patience, patience. There was one time that I pushed myself too hard, I slid right into Tortoise Pose (you can google it) with hardly any preparation and I was so excited that I did it two more times. I ended up having a horrible cramp that remained for about a month and a half. Was it really worth it? No. My leg was hurting so badly that I limped when I walked. I cannot stress enough! Patient preparation! It is so important!!! I know that it will take me a long time before I can do the Scorpion. But I am willing to wait. As for my Dad, I think I may have to have a talk with him about the same thing. Thank you for reading!
