A Creed to Live By: Yoga Class Reading

As I mentioned in my post about savasana a few weeks ago I try to read or say something inspirational at the end of each of my classes. If the students are listening thats great; I hope they can take a little wisdom that I share with them into the rest of their life. If they aren't paying attention then I hope they are just relaxing and enjoying themselves.

This is what I've been reading for the past two weeks:

A Creed to Live By
Don't undermine your worth by comparing yourself with others. It is because we are different that each of us is special.

Don't set your goals by what other people deem important. Only you know what is best for you.

Don't take for granted the things closest to your heart. Cling to them as you would your life, for without them life is meaningless.

Don't let your life slip through your fingers by living in the past or for the future. By living your life one day at a time, you live all the days of your life.

Don't give up when you still have something left to give. Nothing is really over...until the moment you stop trying.

Don't be afraid to admit that you are less than perfect. It is this fragile thread that binds us to each other.

Don't be afraid to encounter risks. It is by taking chances that we learn how to be brave. 

Don't shut love out of your life by saying it is impossible to find. The quickest way to receive love is to give love. The fastest way to lose love is to hold it too tightly, and the best way to keep love is to give it wings.

Don't dismiss dreams. To be without dreams is to be without hope. To be without hope is to be without purpose.

Don't run through life so fast that you forget not only where you have been but also where you are going.

Life is not a race, but a journey to be savored each step of the way.
