EFFORT

EFFORT
I share this #truth in class often, the person who makes it look the easiest has fallen the most.
Never forget real life versus a photo on social media is messy and full of effort and falling.

“Life’s efforts also bring failures. But it is not about how to avoid those things. It is about how you handle them in a way that helps you to preserve your self-esteem and move forward when they happen.
.
Because if you want to go outside of your comfort zone, if you want to do things that really matter then you will stumble, you will fail from time to time. It is normal.” -Henrik, Positivity Blog

It took me years of effort and showing up on my mat to create this shape. Let me repeat that part, it took my YEARS. I would try and try and nothing would happen until one day all the steps towards flying came together. And now I still have to keep practicing this pose or it goes away. It’s a flying hip opener that requires core integrity and upper body strength along with wrist flexibility.

❤️Yoga is a practice of millimeters. ❤️
Achievement can look invisible.
Make the effort anyway.
.
But if it’s worth it to you, then stay the course.
