Now today was the first day she has ever made her own breakfast and I very easily could of focused on the negatives. Like nearly a quarter of a pack rice bubbles on the floor and butter not only spread on toast but the whole kitchen bench.
But gratitude is something I practice as a yoga teacher and mum. I try to make sure I notice the things that would otherwise go unoticed or the focus could be negative. It is so easy to turn a positvie into a negative. So making a conscious effort I praised my daughters breakfast making efforts. She was so proud of her self and was smiling from ear to ear. How easily I could of destroyed that by criticising her for the mess she made. I did have to stop and think, but yoga teaches you to do that and your children as well.

My jouney has been challenging, as some of my medication still gives me nausea, keeps me awake at night and makes me feel lethargic. But yoga builds resilience and soothes the physical and emotional symptoms. My yoga teaches me to trust myself and believe in myself even in my lowest times. It's the little things that you often take for granted that yoga teaches you to enjoy. Yes I am brave and, I am bold, but without family and without yoga I am neither.
