Through discomfort there will be clarity

Today was gentle yoga with Elizabeth McElveen.

It was definitely nice to be home again. I like yoga on the road. But I like yoga at my home studio too.

Elizabeth started class talking to us as she often does. One thing really stuck with me: "through discomfort we can find clarity."

I think it would be fair to say that this is true on and off the mat. I so do like comfort though. It's hard to be willing to make that tradeoff. I am learning in yoga to do it. Life is a different story. The tradeoff is harder. And it's easy to get confused about whether clarity is really what I want. Or, for that matter, is it really what I lack?

It comes back around to the "maybe I am being too hard on myself" question.

More yoga. That'll help.
