Practice

I have always liked that word. Especially when applied to the fun stuff: the things I blog about. Getting back into my yoga practice today felt very good. I pretty much need this kind of thing.

But it's only in the last few years that I see I am practicing calm, forgiveness, and slow, thoughtful reaction, or (even better) no reaction at all. I have literally felt like shaking as I caught words on my lips before letting them fly, breathing and holding onto them. Much like sinking deeper into asana or running well past my marker just to see that I can. I can take so much more because of all this practice.


Thank you, God, and everyone who's given me so, so much practice.
