Love this, Diane! It's such an easy trap to fall into.

Have you read any of Byron Katie or studied The Work at all? Your post reminds me a bit of her teachings, wherein we learn to question our thoughts/"stories" about ourselves, the world, etc. Very helpful stuff! Namaste!

I love this post! Both the writing style and the message. I like what you said abut the guy who complains. People are quick to blame their surroundings for the way they feel or act. But most times you have no control over your surroundings and the people around you. The only thing you have control of is yourself, your actions, your words. Taking to your yoga can make you feel better, but it does not get to the root of the problem. Awareness, being present and taking responsibility, like you said, are the ways to go.
