Practicing Patience

“Patience comes to the bones before it takes root in the heart” ~Mary Oliver

“O Soul, we have positively appear’d–that is enough.” ~ Walt Whitman

Some days I practice with my bones. Aligning. Arranging.

Some days I practice with my muscles. Stretching. Strengthening.

Some days I practice with my organs. Twisting. Toning.

Some days I practice with my mind. Measuring. Moving.

Some days I practice with my breathe. Calming. Centering.

Some days I practice with my heart. Listening. Loving.

Each time, I arrive.

Sometimes openly. Softly. Curiously.

Other times methodically. Distractedly. Honestly.

Always striving to be purposeful, persistent and patient.

What I feel in my bones, I hope will eventually resonate in my mind. In my heart.

This is why I practice.

To do the what.  To feel how. To arrive at where. To know why.

Quite frankly, I still have no answers. No solutions. No idea. I am still just me.

 

And for now, that is enough.

 


Peace, love and Namaste,

Kristin

 

P.S. Practicing patience might just be paying off… I am teaching at a beautiful studio called Mirepoix in Wicker Park this Friday! I am over the moon and it is going to be full! Message me if you would like to come as my guest ❤
