This post was inspired by a wonderful post at Fusion Massage + Movement (written by the artist formerly known as Suburban Yogini), which in turn she got from elsewhere.
Loving yourself is just like loving another person: you have to embrace that person wholly - and that means embracing their flaws as well as their best qualities. And us yogis and yoga teachers, just like everyone else, are full of flaws just waiting to be embraced! In that spirit, here are:
7 things I suck at
- Cartwheels. I have never been able to do them. Not even on - not even close!
- Finance (whether personal or at work). My eyes just glaze over and my brain floats away. I can’t help it!
- Math. This probably explains a lot about the previous point, but math just doesn’t make sense to me. In high school I was so bewildered by calculus that to this day my recurring stress dream involves not having studied for my math final. Seriously.
- Drawing. Apart from stick figures, just forget it! This is a bit of a limitation considering that I do graphic design work some of the time... I have learned ways around it, and still can't draw much more than a scratchy doodle.
- Making decisions. Yep, I am the queen of second-guessing, third-guessing, and agonising for ages over the simplest things. I blame it on being a Libra.
- Saying "No". I am getting better at this one. But I am usually the type of person who wants to make everyone happy, and says "yes" to please others.
- Left & Right. Let's be clear here. I KNOW which one is left and which one is right. I just can't always SAY the one I mean!
