I’m not naturally gifted or athletic. With that in mind it is understandable that I am never the best in any sport. In fact, growing up I didn’t play sports at all, save for the the random basketball or football game on the block. As an adult is when I developed the desire and courage to use my body competitively.
I may not be gifted, but the one thing that I am is hard working. I’ve often heard it said that you don’t have to be the best to be the hardest working in a room. I may not be the best, but I bet you I’m working as hard or harder than the best.
This yoga stuff doesn’t come easy to me, at all. Add the element of 105 degrees and it becomes exponentially difficult. But despite that I am in there several times a week grinding it out.
Yesterday I noticed a major improvement in my happy baby. For the first time ever, I was able to grab the outside of my feet instead of the inside. That may not sound like a big deal to most of you, but just a few weeks ago it was pretty impossible for me so there is definitely some progress.
Overall, my body just feels better since I’ve started. I’m still finding my practice, but I’m practicing. I may never be upside down with my feet in the air, but I will be better than I was yesterday and that’s for sure!
You know that thing that you are scared or embarrassed to try? Go ahead and do it anyway! You will never get good without trying.
