Clapping For A Great Show

As the sun gently lowered in the sky toward the horizon, the beach goers started clustering near the shore with their phones, cameras and other picture taking devices in hand.  Seemingly sinking every so slowly into the sea, everyone's attention was drawn toward it.  With a blink and a flash it was gone, the surrounding sky displaying beautiful shades of orange, red, yellow and clear blue sky in celebration of the sun's setting.  Applause arose from the crowd of onlookers.  Good job God.

We are all at different stages in different poses in yoga.  A few have mastered some while others struggle for years with a seemingly simple pose.   There is such a feeling of exhilaration when one accomplishes a pose that was not possible before.  When we hear a squeal of delight in the yoga room or see someone perform a pose that we can't imagine trying that day we celebrate along with them - sometimes breaking into applause. 

No matter how big or how small the success - celebrate.
