Zen Muskoka Yoga Studio
This has been a long time coming.
I've always been a late night, secret writer; journalling way past my bedtime about things to do, see, conquer, and commit to. My Mother can vouch for this, as she can remember my childhood "to-do" lists full of daily goals, girly dreams, and longing for adulthood. Nowadays though, these lists are filled and fulfilled with big business ideas, travel dreams, and intuitive insight... all from the safety of my notebook and pen. I haven't really shared my thoughts via the blog or repetitive status updates and I do not wish to overwhelm websites with my musings. The ultimate goal here is to share my experience of my yoga practice and how this practice translates into action off the mat. But also, the hope is to facilitate an outlet for myself and others to co-create a space in which a community thrives, passions inspire, and big shifts can actually happen.
Do you ever get the feeling the universe is slapping you in the face, over and over again, yelling at you to change, act, shift, whatever, and you keep on keeping on? On so many occasions, I've felt inspired by bold bloggers but also intimidated by successful soul bearers. There's a fine line between being obnoxiously open about your thoughts or sharing to increase compassion and forgiveness in the world. After meeting many walks of life during my few years teaching yoga and through my personal practice on and off the mat, something is pushing me towards either further self-expression or a connection deeper than the physical. Here is where I'm braving the storm of stories rolling through my head; the story of "I'm bad at writing", the dialogue of "who wants to listen to me whine", and the chatter of "what do I know that's worthy enough to contribute". Fortunately, I realize that these stories are just that - stories! They're elaborately made up tall tales that have kept me from writing this blog post.
Likers gonna like and haters gonna hate, but at the end of the day I get to pour out some of this madness to someone who may resonate, resolve, or even recycle my mutterings. And I think that's kinda neat.
