#3 I Bought a Yoga Mat, Here’s Why it Matters

After putting it off for about a year, I finally bought a yoga mat today.

In the past, there was always something ‘better’ to spend my money on: clothes, books, toys for my dog, cleaning supplies.

Yoga mats aren’t even that expensive! I have spent far more money on far less valuable things.

But for some reason, I couldn’t make the investment.

Today I did it. I spent the $25 and walked out of the store with my new mat tucked under my arm.

It’s nothing particularly special, it smells a little bit like a warehouse.

None of that matters because I woke up today to buy this mat. I woke up today to send a signal to myself that I’m ready to move. 

I’ve never felt so ready to move in my entire life.

It feels like years and years of pain and sensation are screaming to be allowed to travel the alleyways of my body.

This is how we want to be expressed. They say.

It is today, right now, that it’s time to bend.

To expand.

To contract.

To dance.
