Where can I be more understanding?
Yesterday, I had the amazing opportunity to take a yoga workshop called: Dancing with the Goddess. Doesn’t that just sound divine? Well, that workshop set a lot of things in motion for me that I will absolutely write in future blogs, but for the purpose of this answer I’ll share what happened to me during one of the meditations.
After doing a series of kundalini exercises, we were asked to observe not only our breaths, but how we’re feeling. While I felt a sense of calm within my own body, a voice said to me, You’re a late bloomer. Always have been. It doesn’t mean that you’re not in bloom, though. and tears immediately began to fall down from my face.
I get caught up (which is very easy in the age of social media) with seeing the growth of others and not within me. To me, it seems as if everyone else “gets it” and I feel that I’m always one step behind. That is the farthest from the truth. I just happen to learn in my own way, in my own time. If I’m going to be the best that I can be in this lifetime, I have to understand myself more and not hold my standards up to anyone else.
