Handstand drills. Practice makes better. 🧘🏻♀️ Sometimes I post pictures of handstands in the sunset, the perfect IG moment. ♀️The story those pics don’t tell is of the 10,000 hours of work that goes into achieving any lofty goal. The ‘sexy’ work of repetition, sweat, discipline, focus, risk, failure, humility, grit, shattering, pain, re-birth, patience, strength, surrender, self-love and growth. Of going back to the ‘mat’ day after day, year after year until, one day, your dream appears, as if like magic. The true magic comes in knowing that there’s nowhere to go. The journey IS the destination. So, best to surrender to the truth in this moment and enjoy the ride. Everything is coming if you trust and do your work. “The giant pine tree
grows from a tiny sprout.
The journey of a thousand miles
starts from beneath your feet.
Rushing into action, you fail.
Trying to grasp things, you lose them.
Forcing a project to completion,
you ruin what was almost ripe. .
Therefore the Master takes action
by letting things take their course.
She remains as calm
at the end as at the beginning.
She has nothing,
thus has nothing to lose.” Tao Te Ching by Lao Tzu .
