What a week!
We had a very emotionally draining week. We have received news of the death of one of the fathers in our football family. Another friend of the family lost a daughter and her fiancee to a drug overdose, two young fathers we know are in the hospital from cycling accidents and a dear fellow yogi's son had a terrible accident on his motorcycle and is still (thankfully) in the hospital. All this tragedy and pain reminds me to be more thankful for our health, and all the blessings of love life and family. According to the yoga community, karma is played out to take the soul where it is supposed to be. Accidents, deaths and tragedies are hard to accept and harder to cope with. Just knowing that there is a plan and that we are not in control, that we can't really make decisions because life has a funny way of seeping in is a bitter pill to swallow sometimes. All my thoughts and prayers go out to these families in their time of need. All my classes this week sent their positive energy to Christopher who is thankfully recovering from his motor cross accident. Gratitude for the goodness and the shadows that make us grow is necessary. It's about the balance in life.
