Indulging in Discipline

n

This morning:

I didn’t get on the mat to practice.

A part of me wanted to have breakfast.
Another part of me didn’t have an appetite (it’s a voice that appears during the hot summer months).

The part that didn’t have an appetite did want a cup of coffee.
The part that wanted breakfast thought that wasn’t a great idea.

Indulgence?
Discipline?

So I stood and deliberated and ended up having two slices of bread with ghee and then a nice cup of coffee 🙂
