Work with it

As I am sure is no mystery to anyone reading, life doesn’t always go according to plan! I blogged last week about the start of our yoga lunches at AWG and this was week two. Of course, this lovely mid-day flow is intended for outside through the spring and summer to take in some afternoon rays and its raining today.

Refusing to allow the weather to ‘rain on our parade’, we slide the copier/fax and life size blues brother statues out of the open space near our entrance and rolled out our mats. Admittedly, I was skeptical as to whether this would work but the space ended up being perfect for the small group this week!

This concept of making the best of what you have to work with is important to carry through all aspects of life. I always appreciate a little life lesson/reminder with my yoga and today definitely struck a cord.

Sometimes life doesn’t go according to our will and even the best laid plans can fall apart. Instead of allowing yourself to crumble with a shift in circumstance, work with it and see if you can make something great!
