As I sit here on this day, while it downpours - I mean DOWNPOURS - and thunders, I'm reflecting on my splits journey.
I remember exactly what I felt when the top picture was taken. My sister was completely sunk into her splits (not pictured) and I was at least 10 inches from the ground.
I remember looking at it and thinking "there is NO WAY that I will ever be able to sink my splits." No way.
Little did I know that day that it was possible for me to get my splits. It was achievable. But I didn't know that. I pretty much settled on the fact that I wasn't gonna get them, and that was that.
But last August, I began yoga. Practicing fairly faithfully. I started to get a little more open with each practice. No, I wasn't magically into my splits overnight, or even within a month or two really. But gradually, with practice and patience, I was inching closer.
Then into my life entered @jessicaolie's #LETSSTARTYOGA ebook. I have learned stretches and flows from that ebook that have helped me tremendously to get to where I am today. Jess, I cannot thank you enough for this ebook. It is incredible, and you are incredible. ❤
