Jilissa pointed out that sometimes we seem to get caught up on one move we can’t master.
It’ll ruin the rest of our day.
she suggested just putting it out of your head. Take that move, that sequence, whatever it is you can’t seem to get. Accept it, put it to the side and keep going. you can come back to it later when you’re ready to try it again.
And that’s okay.
We aren’t gonna get everything exactly right the first time.
We’re gonna make mistakes, we’re gonna trip up.
There will even be things we have seemingly mastered that will just seem impossible on some days.
Let it go.
Don’t let it ruin your entire day.
Don’t let it drain you of the other things that have the potential to be beautiful.
Leave it to be contained in that one thing.
Don’t take it with you to everything.
Whatever it is that is haunting your thoughts
whatever seeming failures or mistakes or confusion
Just accept it, let it go, and move on.
