I am coming back to practice. Working on practicing more. Because I have so many things I Love to do. So many things I could be better at, with practice. Not just skills like drawing, or doing more "advance" yoga poses, but also skill such as patience, kindness, stillness, gratitude- qualities that help my inner being shine.
I am doing this by sticking to my morning ritual, which includes warm water with lemon and honey, meditation, and now, morning journaling followed by breakfast. This helps me remember to take care of me- helps me remember to slow down and remember what values I feel are important to a nourishing life.
I will do yoga, I will make a conscious effort to wish all beings happiness. I will read before bed, do kegels while I brush my teeth, breath, and smile.
I have high expectations for myself. I know that with practice I can be a better person.
With Practice I can accept who I am at this moment.
Sometimes our brilliance must be coaxed out.
We must believe we are worthy.
We must believe we can overcome resistance.
And we definitely can with practice.
I believe with practice we can learn to soften. Create from our hearts. Say no to our greedy tendencies... Become one with our art.
We just have to put in the work.
So simple, yet so hard.
But the merits make the struggle worth it.
Because deep inside we know what we are capable of.
Practice at first does not seem very beautiful, but oh, what brilliance it holds for us all.
