Day1: Breathe

When I took up yoga 6 months ago I couldn't have imagined it would become so much a part of my life. Having lived a mostly sedentary life until that point the idea that I might want, enjoy, and even need that hour a day three days a week was completely alien to me. Add in that by focusing on relaxing my shoulders and simply breathing help the stresses of work and Life melt away it's become difficult to imagine Life without it.

As it was with yoga it's difficult to imagine that I might write daily. While when I give it enough focus and attention I can write well it has always been a struggle. It's not that I don't have enough to say...In truth I have too much. Over the years far too may ideas have withered and died from not having been developed or expressed...My challenge lies in the fact that where writing is concerned I have lived a Life as mentally sedentary as I had with my body before taking up yoga. It's a skill I've not yet taken the time to strengthen with practice and exercise.

I'm sure that, much as it was with yoga, I will miss writing on occasion intil I come to understand and appreciate the value it adds to my Life. Even so, I'm going to give this 100 day writing challenge a go. I have no doubt that it will be a struggle to start but hope those skills will grow stronger with the practice and exercise needed to meet the challenge.

Breathe.
