Zen Muskoka Yoga Studio
I can't say it often enough: I am grateful.
I find myself teeter-tottering between reflection and anticipation with an underlying current of deeply rooted presence. Looking back, I relish in the ways things fell together and allowed me to arrive where I am in this moment. Looking forward, giddy with excitement, there is complete trust in the flow. With zero fear of the unknown, I am honest when I declare I am open to whatever unfolds because my intentions are clear. It's an amazing release to be rolling with the rhythm of life, all the while carefully getting specific with my values and goals. How did this come about? Connection! Connection to myself and my priorities, connection to others and their purpose in my life, and connection to a sense of freedom and possibility that was hidden underneath all of my over-thinking, slight perfectionism, and confusion. Of course, without those emotional parallels I would have never gotten clear on my priorities or vision. But just in the fact that I'm now able to embrace the shadowy bits of myself, I am feeling more capable and confident than ever before.
I spent the past week traveling in a blur of yoga mats, new faces, sweaty bodies, deep conversation, and full experience. After practising in five different studios, assisting multiple workshops and classes, and submerging myself in learning something I would've never been open to before, I walk away feeling grounded and secure in my abilities. Both personally and professionally, the insight gained from connecting with new people, emerged in the listening, and accepting guidance from masterful mentors, does not allow me to slip into old ways of being. Onwards and upwards!
My intent in writing here is simply to inspire. To create a feeling in you that propels you into contemplation. To create the space for myself to grow so that in turn I can do the same for you. I am humbled by the opportunity in my life and my new found sense of seeing the silver lining in it all. If my words resonate or not, I am grateful. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
