MONDAY MANTRA: What can I learn from this?
Everybody struggles. It’s a simple fact of life. Our circumstances are constantly changing–sometimes for better, and sometimes for worse. The one thing that never changes, though, is who we are, We are the same person at age 5, age 25, and age 75. The more we connect with that essential sense of self through our yoga practice, the more we can control how we respond to the struggles in our lives. Instead of asking “Why do bad things happen?”, we practicing asking, “What can I learn from this?”. When we recognize that our struggles are our teachers, the easier it becomes to make peace with things outside our control.
