The Mets

In 1969, the NY Baseball team, The Mets won the World Series over the Baltimore Orioles.
What many thought was a hapless expansion team, rose above judgment and assumption and persevered with dedication, hope and the openness to possibility.
It's not necessarily the win, but the possibility that makes us try. If we have contentment or santosha (in Sanskrit) in the journey, we can remain even in both success and failure (as quoted in the Bhagavad Gita).
As we arrive on our mats or become mindful in any activity we find our YOGA in, let's bring the idea of possibility into our intention as we travel through our practice and our day ahead...

The future is simply infinite possibility waiting to happen. What it waits on is human imagination to crystalize it's possibility. -Leleand Kaiser

Start by doing what is necessary, then what is possible and suddenly you are doing the impossible. - St. Francis of Assisi.

Every new day begins with possibilities. It's up to us to fill it with the things that move us toward progress and peace. - Ronald Regan

Relinquish your attachment to the known, step into the unknown and you will step into the field of all possibilities. -Deepak Chopra

We don't know who we are until we see what we can do. - Martha Grimes

Standing Bow pulling posture ain't so hard now is it? If you get it today, great. If not, there's always tomorrow. Anything is possible.
It's just a game and at the end of it all, you end up with you, the best prize, so keep your eye on it and let the rest go.
