What a difference a couple of days can make

Today was vinyasa with Rob.

It was a different experience than 2 days earlier. I didn't feel fabulous, but I felt a million times better than the previous class. It was not an easy class, but it was a very standard Baptiste, down to every last pose. There was one point during class where we were doing Dancer's Pose, and Rob said that there came a time when he learned that the balancing poses are not about standing on one foot. They're about being okay with wherever you are right now. That reminded me of the other day when I was berating myself for the inability to balance. And getting super-negative on myself. So I guess that means that I don't give myself a lot of kindness. When I'm not where I want to be, I am brutal. I used to be that way to others. I've become much better at not doing that. But it is harder to manage that with myself.

And that's why I keep showing up.
