Yesterday I had to skip ashtanga and do a hatha routine that doesn't put to much stress on my shoulders since they still show soreness if I do ashtanga every day. I have worked out a hatha routine that still is quite demanding but works more on the legs and core. At night I held my yin yoga class and it was lovely as always. I have a little group of people that comes regularly and the class will continue during the spring.
Yesterday I felt my energy rising to almost a normal level. Coming back to work there has been very little to do and I've felt uninspired and also the lack of patients has stressed me a bit. This is unusual but once in a while it happens. My coworkers are always talking about how many patients they have every day. I know they are very ambitious and on the verge on getting burnt out so they are no role-models in that sense, still I get affected by it. I'm happy though to see that my constant work with mindfulness, accepting, letting go and flowing with what is has payed of. Very fast these first stressful thoughts are relieved and an accepting attitude is sailing in and spreading a warm positive light on me. All the negative thoughts I carried for years are not getting such a tight grip on me any more. I can easily put them aside and choose joy and positivity instead. I feel relieved. The only thing I feel worried over is money since the relief there is not coming as I've hoped. This is a tougher one and I will have to put more attention on how to come to an acceptance here.
Today I have my resting day and on Sunday I will try out acro yoga on Azayayoga. It's all about trust.
Today I will have lunch with my beloved friend A. A lot of patients are booked and then in the afternoon I will have a nice walk home unless it's a heavy snow fall. Even if spring feels like it's here there is some wet snow falling today.
