I do my practice and all is coming...

Yesterday I received negative comments on Facebook, from my blog reader regarding a joke about beer yoga. I simply removed him from the friend list. Simple as that. I practice yoga and writing this blog and that does not mean I have to like each one of you who are reading it.

It is a wrong belief that as I write the blog I need to be kind to my readers. Most people do not like what they are reading here so why they are coming on this pages is beyond my comprehension. All kinds of people comes here, read my particular brand of bullshit and they want to leave a comment on Facebook, what I am supposed to do, to put the smiley face on the end of each comment.

I have decided what is important to me, what kind of person I am, what I want to do.  I want to look like that guy on the end of this post. As 52 years old, is it easy or difficult to attain? I think everything is possible if I have a goal in front of me.

There is no right or wrong in life. I live in order to clarify things for myself in the interest of my own happiness. It’s a way to focus my energy in the way that will lead me to the greatest satisfaction. It’s choosing what I want to be, choosing a path by which to explore myself and my potential.

As of July 17, 2017

I have recognized this moment of my life as the right time to do action. Letting procrastination and frustration due to lack of motivation is behind me. I don't expect quick progress but I will strive to be honest to myself.

Again, this really isn’t about right, wrong, should or shouldn’t – it’s about recognizing what ultimately makes me feel good. Action is preferable to lethargy: It’s just a little something to keep in mind next time I am looking back and forth between practice and sitting in the couch looking for Netflix movie.

Many of you have been there: it's been a stressful day filled with things you hate doing and people you'd rather not talk to, and when you finally make it home, you stare at your yoga mat, and all you can see is a torture device instead. Suddenly, you have a wish to watch a movie, so you put the nagging thought of, "I should be practicing..." as far back in your mind as possible.

A major reason of the lack of motivation is because I'm not getting enough sleep. The proper amount for me is 8 hours, and I strongly believe in the importance of a good night’s rest. I should cut my time of going out and staying until midnight drinking beer and talking about stupidities.

To stay focused and motivated, I have to avoid the things that will get me off course. I  should avoid people that aren’t trying to get ahead in life. Their negative words and actions will feed into self-limiting beliefs and hurt my motivation. I need to surround myself with people who inspire me to be more in life.

Today is Monday, July 17, 2017 and I am ready to start my yoga practice. I will go to gym after work. Have a nice day.

The goal of my practice is to look like this guy.
