DAY 5: JANUARY 5, 2012: Standing in the Moment in My Own Truth!

When I’m in a good groove, in the flow, on the mat or off, teaching or not, I’m aware of how important it is to build a strong foundation, from the bottom up, and I do it. Great practice, great day, great life. And I’m filled with the kind of gratitude for awareness, acceptance action that happens less frequently in my life than I would like.

I’m happy to say that I had one of those joy-filled moments today. And it occured, quite unexpectedly, at a morning Business Research Committee meeting of the Morris County Chamber of Commerce. I know, I can’t quite believe it either. I must say however, that the wind beneath the sometimes fragile wings of my Yoga business are buoyed by the M.C. Chamber. It is a wild conglomeration of sincere yet frenetic and supportive energy. There is a strong streak of service that runs through the core of this Chamber. And in a very strong way, I believe I belong.

I am their only Yoga business representative, at least for today, and I arrive 5 minutes late because of my own shaky time management. So, I miss the introductions, a really poor move on my part, and I’m bummed. Normal business ensues, presentations, announcements, all good stuff,  when suddenly……..

50 heads turn in my direction and I am asked by the Chair of the Committee to stand and introduce myself!


I must say that although I cannot remember much of what came out of my mouth, I know it was good because I felt really great while I was saying it, I believed everything I was saying, and my heart, because it happened so quickly, completely took over. And the truth of who I really am and what I sincerely and passionately do poured eloquently and passionately out of my whole body and landed, I hope, somewhere close to the hearts of the respective listeners.

Such a great BIG moment!

About livebig365

Join me as I dive in to the deep end of the pool and challenge myself to live big and love big. What does that mean? In 2012 , I accepted the invitation to push myself beyond my comfort zone, at least once a day, and engaged and responded to my life, or a given situation in my life, in a way that would normally scare the hell out of me. Why did I do it it? Because it was time time to begin, and I was ready! Each day brought a new revelation, lesson, challenge, encounter, a teaching moment, that revealed to me that living big and loving big are uniquely interconnected. Welcome 2013, the year of lovebig 365. Each post was an expression of love experienced, witnessed, inspired, manifested. It didn't always make sense in the moment, and yet its sheer mystery hopefully evoked a beautiful affirmation of life and all of its shimmery brightness; broken up, lovely to behold, tender and full of purpose. 2014, jagged, bumpy, disjointed posts. 2015, silence, and plenty of growth within that silence. Manifesting 2016: The creation of a gathering place for gratitude. Join in the wavering, audacious, unequivocal fun. 2017: Reflection 2018: POWER, MAGIC, TRANSFORMATION
