Suzannah Scully stashed this in Patience
Would love to hear other's thoughts on what I shared in my post today titled "Why It Took Me 12 Years to Do This"
Anyone else had the same experiences/thoughts?
This part of your article resonated with me:
I had to fall down countless times so that I could know exactly what felt right and wrong to get myself up into the pose.
There was no way for me to get into this pose unless I practiced patience.
How do we practice patiently for 12 years? One day at a time.
Ha ha, I was amazed as well! I was only able to get into the pose for about 1.5 seconds but I did it! :)
Adam - you do a great job of talking about this on Panda Whale. It is such an important message particularly coming from you who has cultivated a strong network and seen success. Those two things took a lot of nurturing and time. And I imagine was something you enjoyed experiencing along the way (for the most part), am I right?
Yes, I've found that you HAVE to enjoy the experiences along the way.
Otherwise you're just rushing your life away!
Howard Jones had a song about this: "Don't try to live your life in one day."
Enjoy the journey. There is no finish line!
