“Do or do not…there is no try.” Yoda
Perseverance. This simple word has been showing up a lot for me lately. It shows up on the mat when I am struggling to hold Warrior 2, it shows up on the scale as I try and lose weight (slowly at 1 lb a week on great weeks), it shows up biking up Mt. Tam as my legs say quit and I want to get to Lake Lagunitas and Bon Tempe, it shows up in our business as we slowly mature and strive to become a sustainable community.
Perseverance. I was never a particularly good swimmer, but I knew how to show up and practice. Whether it was 6 am on a Saturday morning or double practices over spring break, showing up was the only way I knew how to improve and compete. This is partly what drives me to practice daily at Marin Power Yoga. I can see poses, strength and flexibility that appear to be far out of my reach. Thru the twisting and shaking my mind settles in on one word. Perseverance. Just keep showing up and the tiny improvements, the soreness, falling over and misses will slowly become big shifts.
Perseverance. The drive to be a better human is filled with potholes and set backs. There are “haters” who are always waiting for us to fail. They show up as friends, family, competitors, strangers and neigh sayers. Every time I get on my mat I take one small step towards kindness, compassion, strength, flexibility, emotional vulnerability and improved health. Perseverance. Every time you show up, you inspire me to keep going, to make it up the hill, to drop my seat a little lower in chair pose and to make Marin Power Yoga a little more awesome for our community.
Perseverance. We start with survival and we slowly shift into thriving. Keep your head up and your eyes on the prize, at the top of the hill is an amazing view worth seeing.
