It's that time of year when I want to just burrow under the covers and come out in a couple of months. It's cold, it's dark, it's busy at work, my skin is dry, my car is a new color (dirty brown), I'm not getting enough exercise, on some days my yoga practice consists of taking one deep breath!! What's the answer?? For me, it's about baby steps and forgiveness. I try to remind myself that I have choices and I have the ability to change things and change my attitude--and sometimes that actually works!! I try to do some little thing--another deep breath, listen to good music, my favorite yoga pose. I also try to forgive myself -- after all, it is winter in Minnesota and spring will be here eventually and things will be better!
