there is nothing quite like living your passion. this past year has been packed with full on experiences that led me to taking my yoga way off my mat. these days, i find my yoga trickling into my every day life, carrying me on this incredible journey of self-discovery. but there is no way that i would be where i am without the people in my life…those human angels who have held my hand along the journey.
tonight, i was handed an envelope that had in it almost the exact amount needed for my haiti trip in october. unbeknownst to me, one of my yoga buddies had taught a yoga class on the beach that raised a significant amount of money just for this trip. this was followed by my yoga teacher handing me a check that basically put me at my goal.
tears filling my eyes? you best believe it. there are no words for the feelings inside of me, no way i’ll ever be able to describe just how thankful i am for continuous love and support in the pursuit of my dreams.
sometimes, this journey can be really hard. there have been moments filled with so much doubt, stress, and anxiety. but to know that there are people out there who really believe?
i can’t tell you how excited i am about the october trip. i am excited to hug the people that i met back in march, smile at the beautiful haitians who are so warm and welcoming, and live fully on purpose.
taking your yoga off your mat is a transformational experience. just as in the physical practice of yoga, you become a more aware being, and you give each thought and action much more meaning. everything becomes a bit more significant. you surrender to your self, to God, and to everything that’s holding you back from the person you have been made to become.
taking my yoga off of my mat with this community has been such an amazing thing to be a part of and witness. i am continually amazed. my heart is incredibly full tonight.
