Yoga Mat and Life inspiration

Life is on loan, you never know when the loan period will end...treasure every NOW.


What does it got to do with yoga mat?

Human learn from things happening around them. From the Japanese nuclear leak, earthquake to small little things in life…for me it is the yoga mat.

I have restarted my yoga sessions recently and have been using a loan yoga mat which is such a neat one from my sis. It has been on loan to me ever since she got pregnant till now being a mom, and now this lovely mom is thinking to return back to yoga sessions with aspiration like me to get back into shape and became fit again. Therefore, it's time to return her the yoga mat.

Now, don't you all think that life is similar as well? This physical body is on loan to us to fulfill an aspiration or mission in life. But as we got used to using "it" for some time, we forgot that it does not belongs to us and then when it has to be taken away from us, we start to reflect and found we have not been fully-utilizing it. Is it too late when we have such realization?

Earth too is a loan to us. We are supposed to use it with care and make it a better place to live in. But look at our nonchalant ways in polluting the earth with chemicals, non-biodegradable disposed everywhere, high level of carbon emission, etc. What if God decided to end the loan period? What will happen to us and our future generation?

Therefore, let us learn from every small little things in life, learn from this short yoga mat story of mine and take pro-active role in maintaining and using what's been loan to us with care?

So what are the things which are considered "loan" items to you? How about relationship with our closed ones, our friends or our colleagues? Is it a short-term thing as well? Should we cherish and make the best of it?

Do share your thoughts about this!

Have an insightful day folks!
