Today I was in yoga.
We did Tree Pose.
I was able to balance on one foot. This is a gift of sobriety.
Thinking back to early recovery, I could not balance on one foot. It was impossible.
To accomplish what I can do today, I started at the very beginning.
Foot to ankle.
Foot to knee.
Today, foot to mid-thigh with arms extended overhead.
Balance has been a progressive marker for my healing.
For me balance means my focus has become greater and my mind has become calmer.
Achieving balance on the mat has helped me to achieve balance in my life.
Can you balance on one foot?
