Hey. It’s been a while.
Well, I’ve been busy with work and not in the best mood to write here. However, there’s something I’d like to share here so you can enjoy it, too.
What’s it about? Listen (or read, actually).
Some time ago, I thought it’d be nice if I practiced some sports, since I’m basically just laying around the whole day. I needed to move because that’s healthy, right? So I looked into sport centers and stuff, reading about Karate, Tae Kwon Do, volleyball, tennis, basketball, etc. But none of these sports seemed appealing to me. They require me to move around a lot and I was worried about my asthma. It’s not that I can’t control it (I do. Mildly), but that’s how anxiety is. But as time passed, I couldn’t choose between one of those and thought about yoga.
That had been in my mind for a while, but I just never really looked into it because I knew it was kinda expensive. They offered it at school, but the price was ridiculously high, so nope.
Until some weeks ago, I found a small yoga center near work and with a reasonable price. I was tempted, but still doubting it. Most of my worries were really dumb, like not wanting to be in a place where I don’t know anyone, or fucking up (mind you, I’m not that flexible), and they kept me from doing something. So I decided to talk to mom and she encouraged me to go and see what was it like. That’s what I did and ended up paying for a month. I need to push myself to get things done even if I don’t want to, or I will never be able to learn.
Well, time passed and I was a nervous wreck on my first day. What if I mess up? Everyone will laugh at me.
And guess what.
I fucking loved it.
Seriously, when we were done, I felt so relaxed and happy. Almost couldn’t believe I had liked it, but that’s what happened.
And I found myself looking forward to next class. And the next and so on.
Amazing, isn’t it? (I managed to convince a friend to join me and now we both are so excited about it, it’s amazing.)
So yeah, that’s it. I’m happy I decided to do it, because it’s maybe the best thing that has happened to me on 2017.
There are some asanas I still can’t do, but I’ll try and get better at it. It’s not impossible, after all.
And… Yup, that’s everything.
This post probably sucks, but I just wanted to share my happiness so bear with me.
Have a wonderful 2018!
Sincerely, Luna trying to do the spider pose (and failing miserably).
