I appreciate your piece. This learning is true for me as well. I find when I begin to compare, it takes me out of the present moment, feeling, etc that I am in. I had an idea about a year ago that I needed to learn to do a headstand again as I was able to do when I was younger. A lot has happened since that idea, and I realize that that is something that has passed now for me, and to be present in my body and what I am able to do now is honoring being where I am at this time of my life. I love that there are other ways to do inversions and to see the world from other angles, even if I am not able to be upside down in that way anymore.
