1. Sometimes things are harder because we get stronger. I was frustrated with my headstands the last few days, wondering why it was suddenly so hard to get my legs in the air. What I failed to realize is that I had gotten stronger and was now able to hold myself up by my shoulders, which I couldn't do before, hence the headstand and not the handstand. I was kicking up without the crown of my head on the mat and I didn't even know it. Stronger sometimes equals harder.
2. Eight years ago today was really hard for someone I love. Time changes things I think, but the heart will always be heavy.
3. "Prayer and love are learned in the hour when prayer becomes impossible and your heart has turned to stone." - Thomas Merton
