I stumbled upon Yoga With Adriene on Youtube, one Friday night after feeling quite bored and frustrated. My boyfriend was working and my mom and I were having a tiff. For months my body, brain, and spirit felt completely out of whack.
I’m not sure how the boredom and frustration inspired my search for a yoga video but, looking back it felt like divine guidance.
A few days before my 25th birthday I was a nervous wreck—which isn’t unusual, but I was excessively worried. I was so afraid of the number 25. What have I done in my 25 years on Earth? Not nearly close to what I had expected to do. The 13 year old me would have been shocked that the current 24 360/365 version of myself appeared to be far from the standards I had set.
I have an ideal vision of myself--I think we all do. I think we all have set standards of WHO we’d like to be someday. Well, if we want to be that person or accomplish those goals, we have to start somewhere.
