One of my yoga mentor teachers posted this picture on her Face Book page. It really struck a cord with me. This past month I have been battling one of my many arthritic flair ups. I get frustrated because as soon as I get one body part calmed down, another flairs up. Sometimes I feel like all my efforts are not working. It is as if one obstacle after another is being thrown my way. This quote helped me get out of this way of thinking. My pain is not an obstacle, it is a pathway to a deeper understanding of my body and a way for me to connect on a deeper level with my students. I have come to realize that this so called disease is a blessing. I have learned so much from my doctors and physical therapists and I am sharing this knowledge with my students. I may not be able to everything that I used to do, but I have come to understand that there is a lot I can still do! I am grateful that I have the tools, knowledge and support to find new ways to help myself and others.
