Word of the Day(s): Practice
It was bound to happen.
I missed one day.
Saturday, Day 13 (my unlucky number, I might add), I got swept up with so much going on that I just didn’t do my yoga. I did five minutes and got pulled away.
But that’s totally okay.
I did my yoga today (an amazing flow on YogaGlo called Tap Into Your Divine Energy) and it was perfect and great and challenging. I noticed how the teacher (Elena Brower) kept using the word practice. And that’s how I decided to look back at yesterday.
The whole point of this 90 day journey is that it’s just that: a journey. With ups and downs and twists and turns. It’s a journey for me, and yoga is at its core a practice. Not a performance that’s perfect every time. But a practice. Not every day is going to be exactly what I wanted, but that doesn’t mean I’ve failed. While I can’t say that I did 30 minutes of yoga every day for 90 days, I sure as hell can say, that over the course of three months, I practiced yoga regularly and built a relationship with it so I could better myself.
And that’s more important than fulfilling a certain time requirement I set. Because I know who I am and I know what I’m getting from this, and it’s so much more than checking off some box.
Practice makes perfect, no? 🙂
