a modest or low view of one’s own importance; humbleness.
Considering we are dominantly run by our ego in this human experience, seeking ways to bring more humility into our daily lives is something we will always be in practice of.
What’s interesting about practicing humility, and most things, is because we are all so different how the practice itself takes form in a persons life varies vastly from person to person.
Certainly you would agree that we all would benefit from continually uncovering ways to bring more humility into every facet of our lives. When I sat with humility this week and thought in terms of, “how can I bring it into my yoga practice?” what I came up with entailed realizing that I tend to jump into deep asanas without first warming myself up accordingly.
It is a humbling thought, I guide people through a class that promotes a progressive warm up of the body, yet, when I move through a self-guided practice I don’t display the same amount of discipline. Much like my career as an esthetician, boy am I good at refraining from picking at other peoples blemishes prematurely, but way too often I don’t extend the same care when it is my own face.
WE NEVER ARRIVE, and that’s A-okay.
As humans we thrive when we are striving for something greater.
Each day an opportunity presents itself to find movement. As life presses me forward I will benefit deeply by tapping into a softer more progressive way of finding space in my body during my home practice.
It is a never ending journey; and some days I will nail it, and some days I will forget to remember anything at all. 🙂
Ways that I shared humility in class:
I acknowledge that humility is a lifetime practice.
Humility means not forcing your body further that it is ready to go just to obtain a physical shape.
How can you become more humble? Not just on your yoga mat, but in your daily life as well.
