Let's join together tonight to honor the life of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg through our yoga and mindfulness practice. We will shine a light on her powerful work in our world & how her legacy can and must live on through each of us. At this important time in human history, we all must ask ourselves how we want to show up & be remembered; sitting on the sidelines or engaging in our lives and in our democratic process? When I feel small, afraid, overwhelmed, and not wanting to engage, I look to RBG & I also draw from other sources of motivation. These words of Theodore Roosevelt always get me out from under the down comforter where I am hiding on my sofa. May "The Man in the Arena" motivate us to move beyond our perceived limitations and into action; whether actions be clumsy or swift, we simply must be sure to act!
"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.
The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."
See you on the mat tonight on Facebook. Or you can also email me for the link & join in with others in our zoom room.
Yours in the arena,
