I’ve been working a lot on my own practice. Getting myself on my mat helps me clear my head. It is also right after a great practice that I think of my most insightful and thought provoking blog posts. It is about 3 min after that, when the phone rings or the light changes and I completely forget what I was going to write.
But a new year lends itself to new introspection and for me this usually starts well after the actual first of the year. It takes me a while to really define what it is I need to work on. But I decided that this year is the year of no. I have committed to saying no to projects or plans that will overwhelm my schedule. No to nights out and parties I don’t want to go to. But most importantly I’m saying NO to that little voice in my head that tells me I can’t do something. Can’t teach something. Can’t learn something. Now I say no and move myself forward.
So this year I will make the videos my clients have been asking for. I will teach the classes that are in my heart, I will acknowledge that there are some poses I just can’t do and I will acknowledge that there are some poses I’m damn good at!
I will say no to the things that bog my down, so that I can be more present for the things and people that lift me up. And I can lift them up in return.
I look forward to sharing my progress with you on-line or in class…… No excuses.
