I went to this Yoga workshop last night. Instead of injury she kept using the word nurturing. "If you have any part of your body you are nurturing..." I loved that. That something isn't necessarily wrong or bad--just needs attention. I think so often here at this site we use words like struggle, fight, etc. I think that's the real issue. We fight what is going on with us instead of stopping and nurturing what is happening. Allowing instead of making a battle. It makes sense right--I mean how many times do we hear, "battle for the cure", "fight your cancer", etc. I hadn't stopped to think about it--but what a difference when she said that last night. Really--a difference and stillness about the pain I have. I just wanted to share this. I think even changing the words can have an affect--I recommend trying that.

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
