A woman approached me tonight. I was down by the water taking pictures with my roommate - she saw us playing around with some yoga poses and taking pictures of each other. We walked to a spot down the water and an older woman approached me and said “persist.”
I said “I’m sorry, what?”
And she said “I saw you down there...it was wonderful...persist.”
It gave me chills.
As if she knew that I’ve been struggling lately with finding my direction.
As if she knew that I’m really nervous to start my yoga teacher training on Friday.
As if she knew that all I needed to hear was a stranger say “persist.”
