becoming infinite

always learning. always growing. always lifting heavy things.

wadda they got, that I ain’t got?

“Courage isn’t about not being afraid.  It’s about being afraid, but opening up anyway.”

I had the most fantastic yogic experience today in class.  different variations and modifications to poses that had me feeling things in a new way.  lots of balancing poses.  Vrksasana with our eyes closed (I close my eyes a lot during a practice, but never during balance poses, for obvious reasons!).

it took me months and months to be able to sustain Vrksasana with any kind of consistency.  today, I found that I’m able to maintain my balance with my eyes closed for quite a while.  by focusing on feeling my standing leg grounding, being in my body and not in my mind.

we tooled around with headstands on the wall, since it was a smaller class.  this morning was the first time I had the balls to even attempt one in the privacy of my house, let alone in a class.  yet here we were.  and it was a lot of fun.

I’m stronger than I think.

I’m capable of a heck of a lot more than I tend to predict.

despite what I may tell myself on a regular basis…I am, indeed, courageous.

in my yoga practice.  in my academic pursuits (geography of such included!).  in my relationships.  in my recovery.

I am strong.
I am capable.
I.  am.  courageous.
