breath + edge + intention

currently: just passed day 10 of my 30-day yoga immersion.

holy shit, why didn't I do this sooner?!  I thought I was strong going into this, but I'm all kinds of sore everyday. it's been a challenge, both physically and mentally and I welcome all of it! I never went into it thinking I was going to feel "cleansed," but slowly I'm feeling the difference. my body feels less tense. I'm learning to be more patient, to take my time and mostly, to just breathe. every inhalation is like the universe telling me everything is ok. and every exhalation is like expelling physical/mental/emotional toxins my body, mind, and heart have stored. it's like i smoked some happy weed! whoa. I've also been getting some of the best sleep in what seems like forever! I just wanna yoga all day, everyday!

can someone tell me, though, why I constantly have the urge to open up my hips? that's all I want to do when I feel stressed, pressured or even just for the hell of it. what's up with that?!
