learning how to pivot

Because it has always been done one way, doesn’t mean it has to continue in the same way. Is tradition really a habit or something else? Learning how to pivot, is stopping and turning. It takes practice to pivot, it gives me another perspective when I need to change directions and or approaches.

Pivoting is not the end of the disruption process, but the beginning of the next leg of your journey ― Jay Samit

is there beauty in transitions?

I believe there’s beauty in transitions. The hard part is appreciating each step.

Wilting flowers do not cause suffering; it is the unrealistic desire that flowers will not wilt that causes suffering – Thich Nhat Hanh

looking back

Learning, and understanding may be gained by looking back.

Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards. Søren Kierkegaard

what does it look like to practice everyday?

everything is practice – Periander

Everyday I have an opportunity to practice. For me it’s learning a language, practicing yoga, showing up in my painting studio or simply learning how to practice pausing.

I need to keep in mind what the definition of practice is – practice means,  training, rehearsal, repetition.

The question, what does it look like to practice everyday? The answer has to be show up, even when I don’t feel like it. I’m a practitioner.
