At work, I am handling a complicated case.
When I arrived at my mat this morning to start my practice, I thought about it. I thought about a possible solution for the problem of the case. I wondered how to explain the matter to my colleague and manager, since I am leaving the office tomorrow for seven days and they will have to deal with this case. During the third and last Sun Salutation B I did, I thought: Hey, you are doing Ashtanga. This is big and wonderful. It needs your attention. And your focus. Work is not important.
Then I said to myself: No, that is not true. Work is indeed very important. Through my job, I am helping people. And I make money, so I can pay my bills and I pay taxes. With my tax money other people can be supported. I work so I am independent. If my BF leaves me tomorrow, I will be (financially) fine. I never have to ask my parents for money.
But what is not important: My thoughts about work while I am doing my Ashtanga practice. Better to think about work while I am actually at work. Better to focus on the postures and the breathing and the drishtis while I am doing Ashtanga.
Tomorrow I will practice for the last time at my shala this week. Because tomorrow morning, I am leaving to go to Terschelling with a friend. We are going to the Yoga Festival! I am very excited. It is my first time. I will take pictures!
