Today, while in yoga practice, as we were wrapping up for final savasana, we had a short little reflective, meditation time. I really love these moments.
Paulette, who is my sweetest, most fabulous yoga teacher, shared a little quote, that I wanted to share with all my favorite people. It gave me a really good take away.
Wisdom is Knowledge, Experienced.
Reflecting on our experience, gains knowledge, which gives us WISDOM! I love that.
The first thing that came to my mind, is my children. I am always wanting better for them. I've tried teaching from my own past experiences, in hopes, that they won't have to learn the hard way. Essentially though, we can't effectively learn through others experiences can we? With out going through each experience on our own, we can not grasp the knowledge from it, and then gain the wisom that is earned through it. I've always kind of gotten that in my head, but this just really resinated deeper in me today. I love that.
Have a beautiful day...and think good thoughts.
