I signed up for Digital 40 Days at the beginning of January and attacked it full force. Like, for four days or so. The hardest part of doing something everyday? Doing it. So I failed. But the greatest thing I can learn from yoga is how to fail better.
Now it’s mid February and I finally came back to the mat. Not judging, not forgetting I’m a work in progress. The things I love change and fall by the wayside occasionally. Writing here used to be the most important thing to me. With adjusting to a new job and a new lifestyle, work and sleep have been winning over writing and exercise.
But it took today to realize you have to fight for what you want. Passion is making the time. And as far as yoga goes, today reminded me that the thing you bail on or put off might be the very thing you need the most.
I have the emails and podcasts saved, I have the commitment to just do the best I can. To take the failure as part of the lesson and to know that just what I needed was just what I got and what I will get as I recommit to my practice and better use and management of my time. I’ll finish my 40 days eventually. I’ll be late, but I’ll accept what it was, what it is, and where I will be soon. I’m guaranteed a transformation every time I get back in to my practice, and I plan on fighting harder to not let it go again.
What is something in your life that you want to commit to improving?
This post shows that you’re human. We all fall short of commitments we make from time to time. I admire how said that you’ll get your Digital 40 Days done late…Hey at least you’ll finish. And the journey is there for you to take whenever you want to start again. Great post!
Glad to hear that I’m not the only one, sometimes you start things, and don’t get around to completing the task. We all bring different things to the table, nice to have the yoga to remind you to move, not judge, to learn and move forward.
Hey at least you started. Who cares if you never finished. You will get done what you set out to do in your own good time. Don’t sweat it !
“You have to fight for what you want” – very true, good points
