I originally signed up for yoga teacher training in hopes to finally kick my postpartum depression, get strong again for the first time in three years, (hello two pregnancies in less than three years apart), and meet a new tribe of inspiring women. I had no idea what to expect, I just new I needed this in my life.
My greatest take away I have had thus far is to be who I am, fully. I know I have said this for years and thought I believed it, however I didn't act as if I believed it. I was hiding who I was inside. I was hiding what I dreamed of. I was hiding because I didn't want to shine too bright or stand out too much. I was hiding in fear of failing...again. I am a girl who is up for anything and always up for trying on a new possibility. That means I have failed more times than not. Somewhere along the way I got embarrassed of that side of me and kept doing things because they sounded good or other people who think that was a "smart" way to live life. BLAH. Gross. BORE. I had to align myself with myself again. ASAP.
I remember a specific yoga weekend when I opened up to this amazing group of people about what I really wanted. I held nothing back. It was almost as if I shouted it uncontrollably. My dreams wanted to be heard. My dreams wanted to be acknowledged. My soul wanted to be honored. I finally fucking stepped INTO myself. Life changing.
I spoke of my biggest fears and saying them out loud killed them instantly. I began to laugh at what I thought was such a big deal. Pure lightness!
The point I am trying to make here is you have to give power to that inner voice always telling you to try something. If it doesn't go away and you just shove it away you may not be honoring your souls purpose (only you know that). People may not like you. WHO CARES. You may fail more times than you can count before you succeed. OH THE LESSONS LEARNED. You can do you, be you and succeed in life while still finding balance in other areas. TAKE THE LEAP. I have faith in you.
How amazing would it be to step out of bed, have your mission and share it with people with confidence, ease and from a place of security?
For me it has been a life changing transformation to be comfortable in the skin I am in. It has encouraged me to take some of the biggest leaps, risks, and crazy "non traditional" opportunities than I have given myself the chance to do in over four years.
Step into your POWER again.
We need you in that POWER.
It is what makes the world go round and round with LOVE.
