Nicole Shows Up

This is why I show up and also what yoga has taught me: "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade!"

Yoga has taught me to not spend energy trying to change a situation, but rather learn to live with the situation.

When given lemons, perhaps examine the lemons, contemplate the lemons, wonder why life keeps giving you lemons. Instead of turning them into lemonade, turn them into a playful centerpiece, as a colorful reminder of what you cannot change and the beauty of that which challenges you. 

I love lemonade, don't get me wrong, but yoga has taught me to sit with things and not to rush change. 

Sit with your lemons; there will be plenty of time for lemonade.
