Last night in yoga class the challenge pose was a tripod headstand. I haven’t been able to do one of those since I was a kid! I have tried during class before and couldn’t even move into the pose. My limbs just wouldn’t allow me to.
Well last night I DID IT! And held it for 1 whole minute! I am so proud of myself. Immediately, tears of joy streamed down my face. In that moment, I realized that somewhere along the journey I was growing, changing and getting stronger. I had made progress without even realizing. It wasn’t until I stepped out and tried something new, that I saw my growth!! I saw my potential to soar beyond my comfort zone. I am so empowered y’all!! The way I feel inside is indescribable. I know I can achieve anything that I am willing to work towards!
Even when you can’t see it, continue the journey, keep doing the work. It may not come as soon as you want or packaged “perfectly,” but I know this for sure; in the end you will be stronger, wiser and healthier.
