This breakup was quick and easy. Like ripping off a bandaid. Just last week we were flying home from Colorado and I cried the whole flight home because I didn’t know what was going to happen with my relationship. From then to now, we took space, talked through a few things, went to our last couples therapy session, and fully broke up. I asked him one last time if he was sure he wanted to dismantle our lives, he said yes, so we did. Last night was my last night with the cutest pup in the world. He’ll have such a better time where Addison is living with two other pup friends. Addison is moving his things out within the next couple days, and that’ll be it. Maybe i’ll be more curious about exactly where things went “wrong” in his mind down the line, but for now I truly believe we outgrew each other in different ways. The simple fact of the matter is that Addison doesn’t want to be with me right now. I am not serving him and therefore he is no longer serving me. Could we have “saved” it? Of course! I believe in my heart and soul that any relationship can work until the end, but both parties have to really want it. How long will I keep him in my heart? I don’t know. But I do know I feel confident in moving forward right now. I have my own place, I get allllll the growth I’ve put into the relationship JUST for me right now, and life is ultimately good. ❤️ Happy Monday.
Another piece of the thread... regarding my practice etc...paraphrased.
Me: I usually do 1/2 primary most days (eliminating backbends, updog replaced with push ups, and any other spinal extensions replaced with rounded back forward bends) I do this practice to work on the transitions: aiming for handstand to and from every Asana from seated.
Usually second series from bakasana to karandavasana 2x a week and third through arm balances 1x a week. I’m doing practices that counter my life. Lots of strength and spinal flexion.
F: Even updog hurts?
Me: Anything that shortens the low back muscles is bad for me/ bad for any APT. There’s no reason to do it. It doesn’t help me. My life is a Backbend: my postural default. The swimming, the handstand presses, all of it exacerbates APT. Updog doesn’t counter those activities, it increases spinal extension where there’s already too much! The back muscles need to be released at some point otherwise you wind up with pain. Bottom line: I’d rather give up updog than give up swimming and handstands.

Juist als het druk is... even het hoofd uitlopen en ontstressen :) meestal neem ik de tijd niet omdat ik van alles wil of ‘moet’ afmaken. Dit lukt dan vaak toch niet omdat mijn hoofd overloopt. Als ik dan toch ga wandelen oid heb ik daarna altijd meer rust en focus🧘♀️ het even ‘zijn’ in plaats van ‘doen’ en druk zijn is een ultieme ontstresser. Een periode doorknallen is niet erg maar als dit constant is kan dit lijden tot burnouts. Zorg dus voor genoeg compensatie voor je inspanningen.
Maak jij genoeg tijd voor ontspanning en even niks moeten?
