Challenges, Commitment and Warrior 3

Sometimes, the most difficult challenges can bring purpose and meaning in our lives.

Parenting, for example: The lack of sleep. The endless chores. Did I mention tantrums? And sometimes the lack of support. (Hats off to you single moms with multiples! I don’t know how you do.)

When faced with a challenge, the willingness to be patient, committed and persevere shows the greatness in us.

One of the hardest things to do is be present with equanimity. It’s so easy to give up and we are always ready to do so. It’s so hard to stick with it when we know we are walking into more poop.

Can we say to ourselves: “As long as I have life in me, I’m showing up because it gives me meaning and purpose. I’m committed to hit the goal.”? … Then aim well warrior, keep calm, and let the arrow fly!

I’m a yoga and meditation teacher, blogger, wife, and mom of 2 young boys, living in New York City. Parenting can be a purposeful and fulfilling experience, but it has many ups and downs. Here I share my journey of parenting, through a yogic perspective. I am always in search for CALM, strength, balance, flexibility, and joy - on and off the mat. I share the tools I learn along the way with you here. Thank you for visiting my blog!
