Patience has never been one of my virtues
Patience requires trust that things will happen in their own time; it requires
A release of the need to control when things will happen,
Understanding that not everyone will respond when you need them to
This isolation has tested my limited patience
When will this end?
When will our leaders start acting compassionately?
When will we all be safe again?
But this virus has its own timeline
It may eventually bend to our will
But only if we put our concern for our community above our own needs
Our need for freedom and control
Mother Nature moves at her own pace
Not always moving forward
But in cycles
In ebbs and flows
So I resist the urge to rage
To lament that events are spinning out of control
I try to abide in what is
And do what I can to help create calm,
Hold on to what I love,
And have faith that things will get better
In their own time.
May Louie first took yoga in college to fulfill a Phys-Ed requirement and immediately fell in love. She, unfortunately, did not continue with her practice but reconnected with it when she retired from her corporate job in 2002 and has since become a serious yoga enthusiast. After her second retirement in 2017, she completed her 200-hour RYT certification, studying with Dina Crosta, Ellen Mosko, and Jamie Segal Hanley, with a focus on alignment based flow.
