process

i realized last night the girl i was attempting to create myself to be. and there were parts i didn’t like all that much. i especially didn’t like all the parts put together. the pieces fit too tight, too forced, and too compact. it made me uncomfortable to witness. so i slept. i put it away and closed my eyes.

a month later i’ve come back. what now ? nothing. blank. not quite present, but ready. these are the moments you come into yourself. i accept the pieces that are too tight and offer up compassion for everyone including myself, yourself, so that we can soften. i melt into the pillows and indulge in the stillness. not perfection, but practice. process.

feel one thing

teaching: simply a conversation from your body to your students’ bodies.

and I feel inauthentic because I don’t know how my body feels.
get out of your head and into your body. stop thinking and just feel. it’s a tall order, but try it. it doesn’t matter what you look like. let this time be an exploration, an investigation in feeling your body.

the more i choose to explore my body the more i will learn to love my body. my yoga isn’t about tuning out anymore; rather it is about tuning into my details. this is how I will come to connect with my body. tnd it’s not going to be easy. tnd that’s okay, it’s a practice I can call on differently everyday. i have no idea what I’m going to find. there is no outcome, no goal. i just need to be in it, full of wonder, full of compassion, full of patience.

one thing at a time.
one thing at a time.
one thing at a time.
