Today’s quote is so perfect for any yoga practice. So often we go to a class thinking of a million things, things that need to be done, things that happened earlier, things that annoyed you, etc. etc. etc. So being able to find the calm in the chaos of your mind is such an amazing reminder.
How many times have you seen a photo of someone doing a pose that you thought would be impossible for you? If you make it a goal, I’m sure over time you will either get there or you’ll learn something about your body that allows you to get really close. The journey is the fun part and realizing that nothing is impossible is the fuel you need on that path. Find that place inside of you that wants to explore and play until you get there!
So many times people will get frustrated or embarrassed when they fall out of a pose. Today’s inspirational quote is to encourage you not to be afraid to fall out of a pose. Every time you fall out of a pose there is a lesson to be learned to advance your practice. Plus sometimes capturing a photo of falling out of a pose can look surprisingly graceful.
Having a positive attitude and truly believing you can do something makes all the difference some of the time. Next time you’re trying a pose that you can’t always get, or doing anything that you just learned and don’t have complete confidence in yet, stop and reflect on how sure you are you can do it. You may just be surprised at how different the outcome is than when you’re unsure of yourself!
Don’t forget to be awesome. Seriously.
I find that too many times we get caught up in what’s going on in our daily lives, work lives, other peoples’ lives, etc. etc.
This takes us out of our own present moment and takes away a little of our sparkle each and every time. But so long as there is one tiny little sparkle left when we stop to think and remember that each of us is SO uniquely awesome in our own amazing ways, that sparkle multiples rapidly. If you’ve been feeling low, sad, anxious, depressed, etc. lately, I bet you haven’t stopped to remember how awesome you are. Go ahead, try it, you ARE awesome, don’t forget it. Shine it out for the world to see!
