…that there is no such thing as a panacea (not even yoga). That to be better takes concerted effort using a myriad of solutions and tools.
…that suffering is a necessary evil. We are better people for it.
…that denying yourself builds character but occasionally giving in generates more happiness.
…that you can never be too kind to yourself.
…that you can have happiness NOW.. not when you’re thinner, richer or partnered up.
…that being happy doesn’t mean never being sad (or angry).
…that gratitude will change your perspective. Every. Single. Time.
…that embracing the unknown can be incredibly liberating.
…that surrounding yourself with people and things you love is medicine for the soul.
…that it’s up to us to define and shape our lives. Not societal precepts.
“…above all treasure love, moderation and humility. Love begets courage, moderation creates abundance and humility generates power. Courage without love is brutish. Abundance without moderation leads to over-indulgence and decay. Power without humility breeds arrogance and tyranny.” – B. K. S. Iyengar
