Happy New Year!!
Just wanted to share a little story. This New Year’s Eve I had the opportunity to work my part-time job: Balloon decorating. The job was at a fancy hotel in Washington D.C. One part of the decor entailed tying seven, 3ft balloons to seven light fixtures that were about 20ft high.
As the senior worker, I was looked upon to complete this task.
While I’d never been afraid of heights per se, but once up on the ladder I was intimidated. When I climbed the ladder I thought of what I had learned from yoga and meditation. Relax, stay calm and focus on the work.
Each time I climbed the ladder I repeated this. Relax, breath, tie the balloon and do not look down or up : ) just do the work, focus on the work. Each time, the work became easier and I got through it.
I am so grateful for the practice of yoga and using it in everyday life is priceless.
Have a great Year!!
