I have learned a lot about writing practicing Bikram Yoga. Today, in the middle of my standing straight leg, I felt a spasm in my lower back.
No radiating pain.
Just a knot.
I tried to get back into the posture, but it hurt too much. Later, in the class, I avoided sit ups. This is unusual for me. Normally, I will work through pain.
I was reminded: it’s okay if today is not the best day. Just do what you can. That is enough. I kept my focus, and finished my practice.
So true for writing, too. How many times have we left our manuscripts feeling bummed, when really, we did the best we could that day?
Today, as I jump into my new WIP, I’m going to remember that!
