Instead of staring in envy as someone pushes up into a perfect handstand, I celebrate all of the hard work they must’ve put in to achieve that.
I took 400 fitness classes in a year

A great way of looking at things. It took me a while to view classes like that as well. If you think about it, fitness classes are AWESOME. All of these random people gather together in a room to push their bodies and minds to the limit. Even though we may be doing yoga on our own mats or perfecting our own poses— there’s so much we can learn from one another. When I started to look at my classmates as teachers instead of competitors, it made class so much more rewarding.
