Laughter was my first reaction when I first started acroyoga. Everything about it was just so silly and so much fun! It returned me to a state of play that I didn't realize I needed.
Lately though I've found myself comparing myself to other people and this has distracted me from experiencing this laughter as fully. I'll find myself thinking, well why can't i do that trick? Or I should be further along in my practice than I really am. Both of which are rather ridiculous thoughts because I don't know how much time people put into their training, what their movement background is, or how naturally talented they may be. I'm exactly where I'm meant to be, and there's a reason for that. .
It's interesting because I've never really been one to compare myself to others in the past. I've always just done my own thing and been content with that. I'm quite thankful for this recent shift in awareness though. It has allowed me to expand my perspective and appreciate everyone for the beautiful part they play in this tapestry of life. Now others provide a source of inspiration for my own journey. With this renewed perspective I have found myself experiencing this practice like i did when i started out, laughing all the way. 😄 .
