This is how I did it. Before class started, I told myself that I made a promise to do the best I could do, and I needed to live up to that. So during the standing series I had to ask myself if I was doing the best I could do, and when I said no to myself, I did it more and longer. And then the ball started rolling, and I realized I could keep going, so I did the triangle (which I normally sit out) and I did stick (which I have come to love) and I even did a little bit of toe stand, and when I got to camel, I knew I could finish and finish strong.
What a great feeling, especially compared to this morning's class.
I also have to give credit to Jim, who taught this afternoon. I love his style because he encourages everyone in the room and that's the kind of teaching I love. He doesn't scold, he just wants us to do the best we can. And I did. Awesome!!!!!!
