Sometimes we fall but we can always get back up
"We are but visitors on this planet. We are here for ninety or one hundred years at the very most. During that period, we must try to do something good, something useful with our lives. If you contribute to other people's happiness, you will find the true goal, the true meaning of life."
-The Dali Lama
Today's HIIT class reminded me that life isn't always perfect. Sometimes we might fall out of balance poses (like I did several times in today's video), sometimes we might try to accomplish something and fail, sometimes we might succeed. That is life. If everything was always easy and perfect, how would we grow and become better people? If there isn't any pain, we don't appreciate joy and comfort. It's important to remember that sometimes things are difficult, but if we keep going and do our best, we'll be led to where we're needed. This affirmation is helpful for that:
"I easily flow with change. My life is divinely guided and I am always going in the best direction."
Additional "homework:" Come up with something that you can do to make someone happy. Since our time is limited (as the Dali Lama reminds us in today's quote), begin to brainstorm and write down things that you can do to contribute to other people's happiness. And then, take some action! It can be anything...something small is a wonderful way to start. You'll feel great!
