Anger vs Happiness
Why be upset when you can be not upset? Do you really like being stressed and angry? I definitely do not.
We have a choice in how we perceive and respond to every single thing around us. When something goes wrong, which, let’s be honest, happens all the time, we can either get viciously angry, and in doing so probably ruin the rest of our day…. OR … we can decide to mitigate the anger, and react in a more tempered way. I am not saying to ignore the issue at hand - that’s just stereo-typical yoga babble. What I am suggesting is that you take the issue and come at it from another angle. After all, one second of anger is one second less of happiness.
Wanna try with me?

Roll With the Punches
All too often I find that today’s yoga pretends everything is ok. It feigns peace and relaxation, opting to “let go” rather than “go for it.”
I, for one, am all about going for it all, head on. The thing is, if you do so, chances are you are going to get banged up every now and then. That’s ok.
Yoga, especially of the I.AM.YOU. ilk, is meant to teach you to roll with the punches, physically and mentally. The classes are hard with a purpose. The music load with a goal. The dedication and focus specific with an ambition.
The objective of all of I.AM.YOU. is to teach to roll with the punches on the mat, so when you get onto the sidewalks, into the boardroom, or into the kitchen with a wailing kid, you know that you can, and will survive.
The punches are the seeds to your success. So roll with them today.
