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 all.
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?
