Perseverance




"Perseverance will finally conquer. Nothing can be done in a day. Hold to the ideal a 1000 times, and if you fall a 1000 times, make the attempt once more. The ideal is to see God in everything." --Pathways to Joy

Patience when I don't have it... courage when I have fear... and practice to the ideal to remove poor patterns in my life. Pilates and Yoga have more in common than you think. Learning a new movement pattern in the body ("teach to the body, not the brain" J. Pilates) proved to be more challenging this weekend during my training than I thought. I have an overflowing gratitude for my dedicated peers and passionate trainer. "It is much more effective to work on our rough edges with a light and forgiving heart" (E.Lesser), and thank goodness Melody does that with us. We would be smart to do that with ourselves, too. I am a lot blessed and yep, a little tired.

Moving,

Mel
