Flipping my Perspective


As I mentioned in my previous blog post,
am dealing with a lot of conflict resolutions 
(or at least attempting and partially succeeding in it).

I am trying to change my perspective in the hopes that it will help me to understand other points of views.

My word for July and now August was Surrender.

 but am also adding for the fall season

Focus and Consistency



I need to be consistent with my running plan and I need to focus and meet all the major deadlines I have in August.
 I cannot afford to be distracted.

What is your theme for the month of August as we transition from summer to Fall. I can't believe summer is almost over. This one went by way to fast for me. Too much happened too soon. 
This year is definitely going to be one I remember for the rest of my life.

p.s this is not a how to perform a headstand post. Nor is it a good depiction of one. Obviously my head stand game needs a  lot of improvement.

Yoga Pose for Runners : Anjaneyasana (Low Lunge)

 Low Lunge Pose

Muscles Engaged
  • Quadriceps - Specifically the Rectus Femoris
  • Sartorius 
  • Glutes
  • The iliopsoas muscles - The strongest flexors of the thigh
I love this stretch because it helps me open not just the muscles of my legs but my whole body. 

In a sense, it's a full body stretch.

Lately, I've been stretching not just my lower body muscles but my mind. 
Life has been challenging me to find room to compromise in situations that I feel very strongly about not compromising.

How do you find a middle ground? 
How do you find a way to work with others who's life philosophy greatly contradicts yours?
Something has to be compromised. 
Both parties have to come to a resolution.

At first there was a lot of  push back & resistance on my end.
But once I thought it through, I realized, this is a temporal situation that has a deadline. 

So am going to surrender, knowing that this is not just about me and what I want and how I want things to be down.
 I have to honor and respect the voices and opinions of others even if it contradicts mind. 

With the greater understanding that this particular situation is not just about me.
