I recently got back from two weeks in Aruba.
I had a lovely time. Sun and sand, good meals, good books, new friends.
Just as each day at home, I was open to any lesson that was waiting for me. Here are four.
Start where you are
One of the things I love about the resort where we stay is its focus on making wellness available. I can choose from 3-4 exercise classes every day. I usually workout in the gym, take a mile walk along the beach and then go to a yoga or stretch class.
The second day I was there I went to a stretch class with Alex. He is a mixed martial artist, and I had taken his class a couple of years earlier.
In fact, I’d been to his very first class.
When I told him this, he said to me, “I’m so much better now.”
That was such a good reminder that you have to start where you are. Don’t compare yourself to others. You will get better or more knowledgeable in good time.
