Project Peace

I’ll be honest: I’ve been struggling since this last weekend. I tend to get things happening in waves vs. isolated incidents. So I’ve been feeling a bit unmotivated and in need of nurturing. Always a good time to hit the yoga mat and let whatever comes up come up. And also, inspiration can appear from the unlikeliest of sources. This morning I received a facebook message from someone I don’t know, telling me that she loved the peace I project to the world with my picture. Really? Me who is feeling nothing close to peaceful right now? But I kept thinking about this message all morning, and how such a simple thing can make such an impact. Project peace, project peace, project peace…if I keep thinking it maybe it will happen. And I started to get it together. Thanks to the kindness of someone I’ve never met. And it reminded me of one of my favorite benefits of yoga: how it somehow allows so many people that would never otherwise meet to touch each others’ lives in positive ways. So thank you, facebook friend, for turning my day around for me. If you’re on FB and a Cowgirl Yoga blog reader, connect with me there too! Here’s my FB pic. Next up, I promise – more inspiration from some special yoginis, the winners of Big Sky Yoga Retreats’ How Yoga Changed My Life contest. Namaste.
