In January of this year I had a heart attack. I thought how could this be happening to me? I’m in good physical condition and had changed some things for better living. I felt angry, disappointed, frustrated, and confused. Then to be in a pandemic, life did not seem good at all.
I realized that time is one of the most precious things we have. The importance of it, what you decide to do with it, is what really counts. I read this saying; “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass. It’s about learning to dance in the rain”.
Self practice has given me the opportunity for improvement mentally and physically, discipline, softness and the courage to keep going. Chanting is challenging, however it seems to be helping with my breathing and has given me some confidence. I find myself calmer and willing to listen when dealing with certain situations, rather than reacting and possibly escalating the situation.
