So… I’ve always been more of a pen-and-paper girl and technology will be the bane of my existence.
Have been documenting every single day in my own paper diary but here’s to typing it out on this space.
Disclaimer: Not the best with words either but we’ll see how coherent I can get through my next few posts :’)
This is already the start of the 2nd week but I’m gonna recount the past 1 week for me first ayeee
The 1st week already challenged me so much mentally wew
I realised the poses I thought I was decent at were a complete mess – my ribs weren’t tucked in, my breathing wasn’t right, my shoulders weren’t protracted and I could go on and on. It was a rude awakening, but a very timely one – to remind me to set aside my pride and be humble. Not going to lie, humility isn’t my forte, but over these few years, I’ve found myself re-evaluating this aspect of me. What is pride? Why do I have so much pride? (wow am I practicing some Niyama/Svadhyaya? ok jokes aside)
And really setting away such useless pride has made me feel so much better as I grow & re-evaluate myself.
The mind is such a powerful tool and I’m sure if I set my mind to be more conscious of my body sensations, my thinking, my actions, my attitude – I will be able to give others love selflessly.
But for now, I am just glad to be learning each and every day, to remember that I’ve been made perfect by Him and to rest in the assurance that I am enough.
And so I’ll end with a quote from one of my favourite writers: Morgan Harper Nichols
“This is the season she will make beautiful things,
not perfect things,
but honest things,
that speak to who she is
& who she is called to be.”
And so to all my beloved classmates together on this journey, we are beautiful in our ways, so let us see ourselves blossoming & growing every single day.
♡ With Love, Ashley
