Practice = Progress, Progress = Life, Life = Practice

Practice is progress.  Life is progress.  We learn something new every step of the way in everything we do.  That is if we pay attention to what is happening in front of our eyes. 

Consider the similarities of yoga, golf and life.  Practice and patience (remember, less is more) is the only way to get better at anything.  Practice and patience require 100% focus, time and a sense of presence.  Take your eyes off the ball and you may swing past it.  Grip the golf club too hard and the ball may not go far.  In yoga, forcing yourself to do a pose isn’t yoga.  Walking off your mat in the midst of crow isn’t yoga.  Giving up in life isn’t progress.  Trying again and being focused in the moment is the way.  Be open to each moment no matter what it is you’re trying to do –yoga, golf or live. 

None of us know what tomorrow will truly bring.  Why not enjoy what you have in front of you at this very moment?  Practice being content with where you are and progressing to where you want to go.  Make sense?
