Day 10 of #alowinterwarriors is a pose which makes me feel like a Warrior 🏼. This is know as #retreatingwarrior I really like this #skandasanavariation It does make me feel like a Warrior, in retreat, but ready to meet the challenges, and no giving up. What is a Warrior? A Warrior is tenacious, steadfast, confident, courageous, noble, undaunted, loyal, resilient and loving.
My concept of a Warrior has been someone who is fierce in battle, tenacious, steadfast, resolute, courageous, fearless, strong, heroic, and resilient. My concept was formed through literature, movies, and TV many years ago. I think the Warrior poses well represent this, especially Warrior 2, by its look and execution, I.e., the engagement of all the muscles. I grew up playing Cowboys & Indians, as well as Army, and we were all warriors in our heads🏼. Of course, life has taught me that this is a rather narrow view of what a Warrior is. The majority of us don’t have to physically fight other people. But we are willing to courageously stand up for ourselves when others try to abuse, bully or intimidate us or our more meek loved ones. Some of us tenaciously battle diseases or injuries. Some battle with their emotions or drug addictions, battles requiring courage, resolve, and resilience. There are many among us who are warriors for various causes, courageously, heroically, and steadfastly acting to promote and achieve their goals, not for themselves, but for whole of us🏼. Gosh, I have so many things in my head that exemplify Warrior behavior and characteristics. I’ll try to distill it. A Warrior is one who courageously (overcoming fear, real or imagined) acts, lovingly, with conviction and purpose for the benefit of another, others, or the community, and who persists in the face of adversity, or for himself/herself to protect his/her integrity or to better himself/herself. Sometimes, it’s enough to just show up every day, being ready to take on the mundane routines of living, and being supportive of those who need it. It takes a Warrior mentality to live an enriched life🏼️ #Repost @jenn_esy with @get_repost - 2 months ago
