In our nation's capitol, Spring is a blissful - but brief - interval between the chill of winter and the oppressive heat and humidity of summer. The winter from which we are emerging was particularly vexing - delivering multiple rounds of polar vortices and their accompanying snow and record-breaking low temperatures. I don't know if the contrast is to blame (or credit) for my appreciation of the present sunshine, mild temperatures, and beautiful flowers, but I am doing my best to soak it in!
The yogis among us can appreciate the beauty of resting in savasana after a challenging practice, but do we allow ourselves to enjoy a period of respite after a trial in our lives off the mat? So often we power through difficult experiences without taking a moment to appreciate the contrast of the relief that follows. Can you give yourself permission to pause and enjoy the springtime moments in your life?
