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!
