bird with open wings

My yoga practice tonight seemed kinda like a hot mess while I was doing it. Downward dog seemed hard. My arms ached in dolphin pose. It was like I’d never done a push up in my life. When the time was up, I was more relieved than anything. Then I closed my eyes, brought my hands in front of my chest in prayer position, and quite unbidden, I was overcome with a sense of gratitude. Life is, as they say, good.
