Let’s make everything easy, effortless and fun.  Yes, even the hard stuff.

Check in with yourself — sometimes we find it delicious to make things harder than they need to be so we can complain about them and be a victim to them.  Take charge of the situation and find them instead to be easy, effortless and fun.  And, if something or someone is just not fun, see if you can figure out why.  Maybe that can change.  Maybe it can’t.

If it can change, good news!  If it can’t, then maybe it’s time to remove that situation or person from your life.  And, that’s okay.

easy.  effortless.  fun.

Okay, right now this King Pigeon yoga pose is *not* easy, effortless and fun for me.  It’s my work (on the physical level).  Today as I think about Eka Pada Rajakapotasana I’m going to think “Easy, Effortless, Fun”.  And, I don’t feel it right now.  I think it, but I don’t feel it.  I can hardly imagine it being any of those things.

So, friends, I get it.  It’s not always easy to even think “easy”.  I know.

Okay, but here’s what I’m going to do.  I’m going to think it and begin to feel how amazing it would be if this posture *were* easy, effortless and fun.  Okay . . . that’s cool.  I’ve seen some other yoga postures that were very difficult the first time I tried them, become easy, effortless and fun.  So, I understand the possibility of this one becoming that as well.

If I approach my practice of Eka Pada Rajakapotasana as “fun”, I’ll get faster results than if I fight with it, if I tell myself again and again how far away my foot is from my head, how much farther my back has to bend.  If it’s fun and not work, I’ll get there faster.

And, that will be delicious!  I hope that in a couple of months I can post a picture of myself doing King Pigeon.  Now, that would be *fun*!

Easy, effortless, fun.  Everything. 

Blessings to you today!  -Laura
