I Can't Do That
“I can’t do that.” This is a phrase I often hear when folks speak of yoga, meditation, and other challenging endeavors. Actually, you can.
Whether it’s learning mindfulness, healthy eating or detaching from unwanted habits, ditch the affirmation “I Can’t.” Open yourself up to the possibility that indeed you can. And be mindful of how you categorize the efforts that you put forth. It doesn’t have to be an “all or nothing” endeavor. Simply do what you can and save the rest for another day.
Lift your chest and open your heart. Lift your gaze. Extend your arms. Reach out and embrace all the possible versions of you. Remove “I Can’t” from your daily chatter and replace with “I Can.” Remember, when looking for an opening, one needs to be open.
I can see beyond my limits today to the possibilities of tomorrow.
I can take whatever I need and leave the rest.
I can try again because it feels good to try.
