When you know your motivation, pace doesn’t matter; forward is forward.

The last thing that grows on a tree, is the fruit.

  • Firstly, yoga…
  • Secondly, running…

And then it hit me — I stopped enjoying the process not because anything changed in the process itself, but because I have completely lost sight of the reasons why I embarked on it in the first place.

  • Yoga:

Organising my own yoga classes was also supposed to be a chance to play — with sequences and themes of my classes, and the setting of the yoga studio.

I know that I am doing this for fun and to fulfil my soul’s yearning for purpose, and not for money or Instagram followers. And so, as long as I’m having fun and feeling purposeful, I am moving forward.

  • Running.

My pace — and completion time — became less important, for I (once again) really started enjoying the process.

There’s no comparison between the sun and the moon; they shine when it’s their time!

In comparison to ‘me yesterday’, who knew relatively little about yoga despite practicing it for 10+ years or who struggled completing a 5k run without metaphorically spitting her lungs out, I am doing pretty well :).
