Beautiful: Day 4 (A Daily Writing Project)

Things don't feel beautiful today. They feel sort of dumb. And I don't feel like writing, but I'm doing it anyway. I am following through on my commitment, which is the same thing I need to do on Wednesday morning at 9am, when the yoga class I love/hate is happening. "Love" because it makes me feel completely incredible. "Hate" because I want to press a button to feel that way, not get myself there, and do the whole thing. I am always trying to skip the process to get to the results. I know, deep down, that it is the process, not the end product, where the true beauty lies.
