Today i learned something new about myself while i took my first yoga class after moving in to our new place.
i learned that i have grown more than i thought i could have at this age. i learned that little by little i am being able to surrender more from my ego and accept myself in a more wholesome way.
there’s definitely much more to go because as i have always said it we will always continue to shape ourselves and polish our beauty until the day we die.
but today something really interesting happened as i was doing a pose. i noticed how much of my belly was hanging in a way i do not necessarily want to keep or felt proud of. yet, for the very first time in my life i didn’t judge it as i used to. instead, i felt compassion and understanding of why my body has changed into the shape it is today and in fact i felt proud to know that that very belly carried my daughter for 9 months, that belly was in labor for 4 days and pushed for 4 hours to bring the love of my life to this world. so, in that moment i looked a girl next to me with a beautiful ab that i truly admired for the determination it represented to me and instead of feeling envious i used it as an inspiration.
perhaps, this may sound as something simple but to me is a great analogy to many other things in life where we just judge ourselves for not being better off or better than but if we take the time to give ourselves more compassion and understanding we can move through discomfort and begin to change being inspired by others that model what we desire. can you relate to any of this? #motherhood#motherdaughter#love#life#selfacceptance#happiness#gratitude#acceptance#selfcare#selflove#inspirationalquotes#inspiration
