I did tai chi in my room today and it felt great. Then I went to a yoga class. I used to do yoga regularly so thought I would give it a go. Well, the teacher was great but I was in pain the whole time. I asked myself why I stayed, what was my purpose for torturing myself? When my friend Joyce got up and left I felt relieved and followed her out. We had a lovely breakfast together. But really, why did I wait until she left yoga to give myself permission to leave? How often do I stay in painful situations or relationships waiting for the “right time ” to leave?
