I’m not really a newbie, not anymore. But yoga is making me a NEW me, so that’s what I’m thinking about today. Being a newme.
Wanted to just share some things I’ve been spending my time lately thinking about.
“The thought manifests as the word, the word manifests as the deed. The deed develops into habit and the habit hardens into character. So watch the though and its ways with care…let it spring from love.”
Stepping back and simply observing the world without passing judgement makes it easier to tolerate change and allows you to let go of old ways of thinking and accept new ones.
We are responsible for what we are, and whatever we wish ourselves to be, we have the power to make ourselves. If what we are now has been the result of our past action, it certainly follows that whatever we wish to be in the future can be produced by our present actions, so we have to know how to act.
“When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.”
Now, let’s be honest. I’m pretty awesome :). So I’m not all trying to recreate me, me has a lot of good baggage I can be proud of. But starting a new thing, whether it is a commitment to work out or eat more chocolate, whatever it is, most people I see fail. Or at least to not be harsh, have many hurdles to overcome to be successful. Remembering strong suggestive thoughts like these can remind you it can be easy to do that thing, make that change, grow and bloom into someone who isn’t talking about what they should be doing. It’s also helped me not want for anything, by starting to realize I have so much more than I need.
