Understanding how to let go is knowing how to confront everything.

- Buddhist Quote

Everything you do has a balance to it. You can feel it and when you do, you know it’s perfect. Every movement you make has a perfect center of balance that you can take away from it. It’s not supposed to feel like you’re pushing yourself or dragging yourself along. When you find it…you’ll know…you’ll know…
