“Just because I can’t do it today, doesn’t mean that I can’t do it someday” ~Arthur
I was so impressed by this man’s determination and persistance. It shows the power of our bodies and minds and how yoga can help strengthen both.
Not every community is so accepting and encouraging and it felt good to know that something I practice is so beneficial to others in ways that I can’t imagine.
Sometimes I need a reminder that the little things I concern myself with, don’t matter.
Hopefully watching this puts everything into perspective, at least for a little while. We need more people like him, and those who helped him, in this world. If everyone had that same determination combined with compassion for both themselves and others, we would live in a truly amazing place.
