I have been trying to complete Yoga With Adriene’s “30 Day Yoga Challenge” for the past three years and I always fall off at Day 15 or Day 16 but I’m making it to day 30, this year. I figure the best way to hold myself accountable is to write daily posts about it, so here’s today’s post!
Today we did Three-legged Dog like six times and moved at a faster pace. I kept thinking that my arms were going to give in but, toward the end, I realized that my arms weren’t even tired. Sometimes you’ve got to tell your mind to shut up in order to get something done. I definitely need to ignore my mind when being creative because I always second-guess myself, especially with new career opportunities. I always wonder if my work is good enough or if I’ll stand out in the crowd. I like to repeat the following to myself whenever doubt creeps in or when I’m writing a cover letter: Navigate with the confidence of a mediocre white man. I heard that on Another Round or The Read (can’t recall) a few years ago and have carried it with me ever since.
