Sometimes I over think things. I spend more time analyzing what the outcomes could be that I prevent myself from achieving. My sometimes cautious nature has kept me out of trouble, that's for sure, but perhaps it has held me back more than I ever thought. Wednesday, something great happened. I was at 630am yoga with Jenna and I got in to two poses I have never gotten in to before. For those of you who don't know, I broke my spine a little less than five years ago. After surgery, recovery and physical therapy, I tend to stay clear of anything that intimidates me- sports wise. Such as certain yoga poses. I doubt my strength and thus always take the more gentle version of poses. Well, something inside of me said, just go for it. So, I did. I focused on my breath, I didn't judge myself, or panic, I just went for it. While hovering in Crow, I thought, this must mean something. If you have ever seen the sandlot, you will get this reference- I felt like it was an omen, like Benny busting the guts out of a baseball. I wasn't sure what was coming, but I knew something was. Well... some really exciting things are happening now! I can't talk about them just yet, but some pretty great life changes are about to unfold. As soon as I can talk about them, I will!
How many people hold themselves back the way that I had? Is there something you want to try but haven't gone for yet? What are you waiting for or what is preventing you from trying?
