It’s before 9:30am, and I’m already proud of what I accomplished. If I were to sit around and watch tv for the rest of the day, I would still feel great. (I’m not because it’s not even 9:30am on a Saturday and I do have plans, but it’s wonderful to acknowledge your accomplishments and take a moment to just sit with that).
I finally got back to the mat. I finally practiced yoga again. I’ve had a mostly off-again now on-again yoga practice for over a year. And I know it’s something I want to get back into and keep putting it off. There are so many other things I have to do – for work, for the home, for friends, for other people, and instead of yoga, I’ve been doing other things for myself. I’ve been ducking this particular goal. It’s taken me this long, but I’m here. And most recently, it’s taken great conversations with yoga instructors, poor sleep that’s been waking me up too early, and feeling the too-much sugar of cake.
It’s never too late to reach your goal. It’s okay to give yourself some slack if it’s taking you longer to get there. Small accomplishments are worth celebrating – even if that means just sharing your excitement with others.
