This used to be the dream I never thought I could attain, a ten second hand-stand. And as I was struggling with some frustration over my progress lately I forced myself to acknowledge this fact. Something I thought of as out of my reach when I started is now something I can do multiple times in a day. I was in danger of taking that for granted. How could I be upset at a hand-stand like this? Something I dreamed of for so long had lost its magic once I accomplished it. There are two things to take away from this - The first is that the things you think are impossible for you today could one day be commonplace. With enough patience and persistence, you really can achieve almost anything if you want it badly enough. And once you achieve the "impossible" goal, you find you can do it again and again. Believe me, if I could do it, from where I started, than anyone can. Anyone. The second take away is that it is easy to be so focused on your future goals that you downplay or ignore your past successes. This hand-stand was a disappointment to me at the time, but to someone who is just starting it might seem impossible. It surely seemed that way to me not so long ago. Today I will think more on this and try to appreciate how far I've come. Let's have an amazing week, my people! Let's be our best selves. Let's do the right things when they are the hard things. Let's show the world what we've got! I believe in you. I believe in US. We are stronger together and we can do this! . . . .
