When I read this quote I thought about this yoga pose that I tried. I fell on my forehead and laughed and laughed! It is called the Crane (see picture below).
This pose in particular requires arm and core strength along with tons of balance. As you can see it’s quite difficult and I totally failed the first several times I tried. (I remember in dance school a friend was able to do it right away, many many years later I conquered it…wait, I need to make sure I can still do it before I keep that statement in this post…) OK I’m back. I can’t hold it for long, but I can get my feet off the ground.
OK, back to the quote. If you do everything perfect, you are only doing what is easy, which means you are not really trying. Stumbling, falling, and hitting your forehead on the floor (and having your hubby crack up laughing) is all part of trying. And isn’t that what it’s about? Accomplishing what you thought you couldn’t do.
Nice ring to it eh?
Keep failing (and trying),
