Is all your "learning" keeping you from "doing"

“When we practice something, we are involved in the deliberate repetition of a process with the intention of reaching a specific goal. The words deliberate and intention are key here because they define the difference between actively practicing something and passively learning it.”

—Thomas Sterner, The Practicing Mind

If you goal is to do a handstand you can read books and watch videos to see how to learn to do a handstand, but until you put your hands on the floor and practice doing one you won't be able to do one.

Passive learning creates knowledge. Active practice creates skill.

Angel Card January 22, 2015 - Forgiveness

/ ˌfərˈɡivnəs/ 
the action or process of forgiving or being forgiven.

the intentional and voluntary process by which a victim undergoes a change in feelings and attitude regarding an offense, lets go of negative emotions such as vengefulness, with an increased ability to wish the offender well.

stop feeling angry or resentful toward (someone) for an offense, flaw, or mistake.

क्षमा kSamA  or Kshyama

Start forgiving yourself and others. We’ve all been hurt by our own decisions and by others. And while the pain of these experiences is normal, sometimes it lingers for too long. We relive the pain over and over and have a hard time letting go. Forgiveness is the remedy. It doesn’t mean you’re erasing the past, or forgetting what happened. It means you’re letting go of the resentment and pain, and instead choosing to learn from the incident and move on with your life.
