The human body is amazing in so many different ways and for so many different reasons.
One of the things I want to talk about is psychological discipline and and the ability for the body to develop and learn new skills.
I haven't always been flexible and even at that, I have a long way to go.
But I have recently gotten my splits because of my dedication and discipline to stretching and practicing yoga.
Its hard work. But its doable. I've been practicing for 2 years nearly and I've finally started to get the splits .
the body grows in so many different ways and I think it is so awesome that it can do that. Even as an adult.
My alignment needs some work still, and I can only hold it for 5 seconds. But touch down has been accomplished. Im willing to give it more time and practice in order to become better at it.
Not only in the splits practice. I am so amazed with how with practice, the body can better itself.
obviously within reason. Injury can also happen so easily too. But even that said, progress is within reach, perhaps in a different way, who knows. It just amazes me the potential.
My pole dance for example. I've come leaps and bounds in my pole dance practice. My strength and flexibility is astounding now.
I hear alot of people say "I wish/have always wanted to be able to do xyz" and they then hear what effort is involved and decide not to bother. Thats perfectly fine. What isn't fine though, is continuing to complain about how you wish you could do said thing. It's not cool because it shows that you want to get things without any effort, work or discipline. It's a sad thing to see. If you really want something, set realistic goals to get to it or as close to it as physically possible for you.
I am a 25 year old nurse, who is trying to find herself. This blog will contain epiphanies I have, my yoga progress and other such things. Enjoy. :)
