"Who are we, not to shine?"
Sometimes we doubt ourselves. We battle insecurities, we allow fear to creep in. Perhaps we feel inadequate on a particular day about a certain thing. Doing 101 days of yoga is a huge commitment. That's almost a third of a year. With jobs, spouses, children and all the trappings of everyday life it's no small feat. Doing something that spans a good chunk of time allows for unexpected events to sneak in there and throw a monkey wrench into our plans. We keep going. We take it one day at a time and we work around that illness, trip, power outage and just schedule a double. We don't throw in the towel. Why would we? We've only just begun! Here on day 16 we march forward, brave little yogi soldiers. We won't listen to any of our internal excuses. Those excuses are not afraid of failure, rather they are afraid of success. During our moments of doubt and fear not only in a yoga challenge but in life they shrink back not from our darkness but from our light. Sometimes we wonder, who am I to complete this yoga challenge/be successful/marry my dream spouse/acquire my dream job/move to my dream location.
Who are you NOT to do any of that?
Who are we, not to shine?
