I have been fortunate enough to have grown up with a mother who had me introduced to various forms of movement at a very young age. I have also been very fortunate to have discovered yoga 7/8 years ago. I have also been very fortunate to have been actively immersed and involved in the yoga community in the last 3 years. Even more so to have the honour of becoming a teacher soon! What stands out at me today is how fortunate I feel to have made great relationships with the most beautiful souls and letting go relationships and attitudes that no longer served my in my ultimate path of finding my dharma. I have also been fortunate enough to see a big [no, gargantuan] picture: where I stand now versus where I did 5 weeks ago-- letting go a superficially influenced world I no longer care for. I can observe now, how much yoga has changed me. This is a community of straight up lovers and contagious warm energy that almost forces you to believe in yourself. Thank you everyone, for growing me up 💗💗💗. There's no going back for me now 😍✨🙏🏾🌎🍭 #happybelatedearthday#dharma#yoga#love#yogacommunity#yogismakebetterlovers
Driving into work today, I had a bit of a revelation. Or perhaps a blunt acceptance as to how [my] life is moving. It was a little weird tho because as I was driving on the highway, I observed that people came into my lane and came out of it fairly evenly. And as I coasted closer, they'd pull into the lane on either side of me as if to get out of the way. There were people zooming from way back and advancing forward as if time wasn't on their side. And then there were the cars that coasted evenly ahead of me as if time wasn't an obstacle they had to wrangle with today. This is 8am traffic in the six. It was kind of like life was telling me to stay on my course. I came on to the highway this morning like every other but my train of thinking wasn't as enthusiastic in feeling: there HAS to be more to this life then working 9-5 for an international corporation. Yes, I adore designing, but I want more to it. Obviously with yoga, my life IS yoga. Yoga IS life.
Since I started my YTT about four weeks ago, I've crossed lanes with some of the most brilliant beings. I want more of that energy. I realized people in my past came into my life when they had and then whizzed right by me as if I wasn't making fast enough strides. I'm good with coasting in my right direction--it's taken me a while to get here. To not always be in a rush. Not think about my future. Just being here.
Going to get a coffee this morning is a treat. We have a beautiful Nespresso at work but I thought, "what the heck". I didn't realize I had the incorrect change and I got a larger size for less and with a gracious smile from the barista.
Thank you universe for all of the signs today.
I just wanted to take the time and say thank you to my fellow YTT classmates and lovely teacher for opening up their hearts and sharing their sweet energy. I felt supremely moved and emotional today, shed a few tears and was just so completely overwhelmed with love for all of you. To be in a room full of the most caring, compassionate and strong people and be able to share the next few months with you is such a blessing. Like many of us, I was having a hard time during the beginning of our program and you've embraced me with such warmth. Love love love you 😭 my heart feels so full. 💗💗💗🌎🌞🙏🏾✨#yogafamily#love#energy#spirituality
