May I have a Wednesday Word with you? That word is “patience,” a virtue we all need to practice.
I planned to blog on March 1, and share this picture.
The blog post was to be an update for the “Now Year’s Resolutions” challenge (not “new”) I issued to my cycle class.
I blogged about it on December 1. I challenged my class members that day to think of one small aspect of their lives that they wanted to change, and to commit to writing down the change and taking steps to achieve it, instead of waiting until New Year’s Day to do so.
Little did they know that I planned to follow-up with them and ask them about their progress on March 1.
That class was an awesome one. I was well-pleased with the level of effort they displayed. It was a challenging class with new music and routines, and they didn’t miss a beat. Most of all, I was very impressed with the individual changes they had made since December 1. I walked out of the gym with a bigger-than-normal smile on my face. Since I was feeling so good, I decided to do a bit of a yoga before starting the work day.
Little did I know–as I tried to move from chaturanga into an upward-facing dog–that my left ankle would have other plans.
