When practice becomes easier is the practice then boring?
When we do something that’s challenging or something that we don’t feel like doing, because the task makes us feel awkward, nervous, inadequate, clumsy or maybe even anxious. It will take a lot of effort just to show up and to keep trying. (many have written about this)
The definition of practice used as a noun is, training, rehearsal, repetition, preparation and if you use practice as a verb it seems similar but it means rehearse, work on, and go through.
With difficult situations in life, such as, illness, death, divorce or loss of income, which are all challenging things. Facing these difficult things in life is a type of practice. It may not get easier but if we become familiar with the ebb and flow of life, the hope is that we may be able to handle the stresses of our lives with a little less resistance. It takes willingness, practice and presence.
For me, going to my studio is my practice, sometimes I fail and sometimes I am willing to go deeper.
The word pairing could go on. What if we learned that contradictions can be true at the same time. Knowing hope and heartbreak without judgement and can happen at the exact same moment.
