Releasing Into

In yoga, there's a concept known as "releasing into."  It's what we aim to do when we get into poses that are uncomfortable.  We focus on breathing and "send the breath" to the places we feel tension and discomfort whilst trying to settle in beyond the resistance.  We can apply this same concept to our lives.

No Wrong Choice

I read something recently: whatever choice you make, it will be the right one because it’s the one that will move you forward in your journey.  It will change where you’re at right now by creating new circumstances for your life, and those circumstances will be precisely the ones you’re supposed to occupy. 

My Heavy Blanket

I had my first "encounter" with depression my sophomore year of college.  I remember the time and place of it like it was yesterday - and even still today as I reflect on it I can feel those first moments - the emptiness, the confusion, the loneliness and desperation.  Sadness swept over me like a wave, and the lights went out all around me.  And, more painfully, the lights went out inside of me.  I had no idea what was happening, and I certainly didn’t know what to do about it.
