Ever had a day where the second your forehead hits the mat in child’s pose, your eyes well up with tears? This happened to me this morning. I unrolled my mat, knelt down, made the shape of an oh-so-familiar pose and immediately was overwhelmed with a wave of inexplicable, unexpected emotion.
Supposedly, everything is working in my life. I am blessed beyond belief and have no reason for complaints. So my mind raced – "I should be more present to the people I love", "I need to see my parents more", "I should be more grateful", "I didn’t meditate yesterday – that must be why." Or, "I hate the way my yoga clothes fit my body today." Darting between reasons, trying to explain to myself why drop after drop was spilling from my eyes onto my innocent mat.
Really, though, all of these answers are true. And they’re all not true, too. They just are what they are. And they exist whether or not I choose to dwell on them. The tears will roll down my face without explanation, but I decide what to do with my mind. And today, I decided to just give myself the peace of letting go of the search for an answer. Putting 100% trust in my teacher’s words. Completely surrendering. 
I can’t say that by savasana the feeling dissipated or even that sitting here now I don’t feel it lingering. But, for this breath at least, I am giving myself the gift of letting it be.

I heard you needed a transparent dancing hot dog emoji gif. 
There’s a demand, and where there’s demand, there’s supply.
It’s simple gifonomics, folks. We can fix the economy pixel by pixel, if we can come together as people; set aside our partisan differences (Mac/Windows/Linux), and see the unity of html5. CSS bless.

This past week, I’ve been feeling a massive disconnect; in my body, mind, yoga practice, in life in general. Like I was an observer going through the motions rather than an active participant in my life. Towards the end of the week, I began feeling like I was scattered into too many pieces to pull them all back together. Had I broken myself into so many parts there was not enough deep-breathing glue in the world to bring it back together?
 I hoped not, and kept moving, kept sweating, kept SHOWING UP (even when showing up felt like shit). Just tried to embrace the disconnect, ride the flow of what it was instead of hermit-ing up and closing off, like I so badly wanted to do. 
Yesterday, in a desperate attempt to shake this, I went to two ball-busting classes with my favorite teacher, just whipping the epic bad-news-bears feeling out of myself. I sweated and moved so much that I no longer had anything left but breath and now. FINALLY. The pieces started magnetizing themselves together, without my worrying about it. 
So the takeaway from this is, no matter how far away you feel. RECONNECT. It’s never too late. Connection is right around the corner.
