I am Grumpy…

Most days I wake up like Biatch from Hell, despite the personal growth I’ve done. The awareness is so freeing, to know it’s no one else’s fault but my own, however it doesn’t stop me from feeling like a ‘See You Next Tuesday’ Mo’ Fo’. Even if I feel like one, I know my actions will determine who I will be…

Anyway, at these times I am grateful to hit the mats with Nancy Turnquist. As usual she asked how everyone is doing today, before class started. For which she received from other students, minor shoulder injury, lower back etc… etc… I didn’t have any ailments that I needed to work through or with, but as we went into our first pose, Child’s pose. I couldn’t help myself from declaring…

“I am G.R.U.M.P.Y…”

I wake up 90% of the time as Mrs Grumpy...

To which the class giggled and I got a little freedom by actually defining my feelings. From then on, we worked on tools for poses that opened the heart. Go figure by the end of class I was no longer Grumpy, I became Content…

As I’ve heard Darren Rhodes state in his Yogaglo classes, “Shape Shift to State Shift…” Yay, goal accomplished.

There are a lot of practices and physical activities we do, that once we commit to doing them, we feel better afterwards. From going for a run, to opening the never-ending pile of mail.

What is different here, is that I was deliberate to work on NOT being Grumpy for the rest of the day. I found a partner in my instructor and armed with several tools from the day’s class, I could use them whenever I noticed Grumpiness showing its ugly face… We’ll see about the next day, when the next day comes…
