This morning during yoga I had a moment where I felt not far along enough in my physical practice. There was a time when I would have let that feeling carry forward throughout my entire day. Instead I immediately reminded myself that this practice is a journey. There is no end goal. I have had different priorities in my life as of late and the physical practice of yoga will always be there.
To be able to recognize in that moment that I didn’t need to compare myself to others, and that I could be gentle with myself was huge personal growth. I can attribute both the physical and non-physical side of yoga to that.
