Yoga is a feel

I look back 6 years ago and remember I couldn’t even do the splits or a crow. I remember getting on the mat with a crying baby wondering how I am going to be strong enough to look after myself and my baby. Now 6 years later I can do all those things but it did not make my life any richer. Because it was never about the poses. It was always about me showing up for me. It really doesn’t matter the position, the number, the score, the six pack, the clothes, the house, what matters, is how hard you try. This is why…..
The world needs you to be empathetic and kind. A test doesn’t measure that.
We need to love ourselves and love others. A test doesn’t measure that.
Learning should be enjoyed to continue. A test doesn’t measure that.
Because we all need to treat each other with respect. A test doesn’t measure that.
The world needs people filled with confidence. A test doesn’t measure that.
Our lives need us to discover and try new things. A test doesn’t measure that.
A life lived should be daring and adventurous and full of ops a daisy 10,000 ways not to do that but I have learnt a lot experiences that make memories of a life time. A test doesn’t measure that.
A world needs friendship and each of us to be a friend and the love we wish to see in the world. A test doesn’t measure that.
The world needs creativity to change it. A test doesn’t measure that.
Now, listen, I know that when life is standardising us by a test or a society standard that it’s hard to remember that. I get it. I struggle too. We live in a world of grades and tests, numbers and untruths that only damage us by creating unrealistic society standards.
But this world also understands true value.
And that is what I want you to remember as you read those questions and fill in your answers to any test or as you live your life and fill up your memory box.
You are greater than any test or number or standard.
You are valuable and awesome and a gift to this world.
Not because of a test or your lived up to a standard or a number of expectation.
Simply because you are you.
Namaste
