As I completed today’s workout the following quote registered into my brain:
“That which we persist in doing becomes easier to do, not that the nature of the thing has changed but that our power to do has increased.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
This certainly is true in my case. The workout was difficult, but not as difficult as it was only eight days ago. In fact, I was able to complete nearly every rotation. My body responded with strength and I found a way to persist in the effort. This is amazing because for the past eight days I have been running solely on desire.
It was a busy day and I didn’t get to the work out until shortly after 8:30 PM. This meant that my yoga inventure would be with me until nearly 10:00 PM. Determined, but tired, I wearily made my way to my yoga mat. I immediately felt energized and the work out time flew by quickly.
I am learning many things as I enjoy this inventure. The ideas that are popping into my mind are incredible, but they have not become a part of me yet. Sadly, before the workout is over they have fled my mind. The fact that my mind is invigorated is something of value, and I hope that before I am done with my 108 days the same ideas come into my mind often enough for me to retain them. For now, I will accept the energy that is flowing through my body with gratitude and grate.
How do you capture your ideas?
