How do you end that sentence? What is it YOU find when you hold yourself in stillness? Recently, when holding my own self in stillness, I found the following......... fear, vulnerability, compassion, courage, strength and most importantly truth. When you stop and actually take time to face the raw YOU, it is amazing of what you discover.
Yes, I am a yogi and yes, we spend hours and hours on studying and understanding our own internal selves but just like you, I am human. The past year and few months, I have fallen and stumbled, I have laughed, cried, experienced disappointment of others and of myself. I was dealt with a loss of a beautiful soul that entered my journey and another soul that while still here in the flesh, are sadly cognitively gone. With each goodbye that I was faced with, have forever changed me.
While tuning into my truth, I brought to my own light how I used distractions to limit how much I sat with who I was. I am sure that we can all attest in our lives to being so "caught up" in the hamster wheel that we too often don't realize all that surrounds us. You know those Kodak moments, that somehow we miss, the moments that we should be letting saturate our souls, instead become quick captures and then we move to the next item on our to do list, accomplishment list etc..... We could blame social media which makes us all run on 24 x 7 but in reality, it is YOU who holds the key to your driver seat. You decide what to let in, what to let out and most importantly what fills your cup. It is you who determines what you want in life and not what others want or expect for your life.
Forcing myself to look inward and practice my own proprioception has allowed me to take back the driver seat and ease up on the gas pedal of me. This summer I will be practicing my own cruise control so that I take the time needed to work on things for me, about me and of me. I will still hold the workshops near and dear to my heart as those are my outlets where together, we all hold stillness and space.
My friends and beautiful souls, this journey in life is short and I want to make the most of my moments with myself, my loved ones and with you, my loving and beautiful yoga community. I look forward and hope you do to with sharing and taking in the landscape together through this next chapter of life's journey.
I like the sunroof open, hope you do too!
Love, light & always sparkle,
